Top IPTV Market Players Tracked in New MRG Study Now Available at MarketPublishers.com09 Feb 2012 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Today, IPTV operators tend to use other hybrid delivery methods including satellite, digital terrestrial and OTT (over-the-top) Internet services to complement their IPTV offerings or expand into new regions and markets. Likewise, multiscreen services are rapidly being launched by many pay-TV operators around the world, with many delivering TV and video on demand (VOD) directly to the iPad and other smart devices.
Companies offering full IPTV ecosystems like Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Ericsson, Motorola, Huawei, and ZTE have an advantage in offerings to large operators, while smaller specialized companies like Amino, Verimatrix, Harmonic, and others continue to rank high with mid-size operators looking for high flexibility as the industry enters into partnerships with OTT media owners.
New study “IPTV Market Leaders Report - December 2011 (Fall/Winter Edition)” prepared by MRG Multimedia Research Group (MRG) has been recently published by Market Publishers Ltd.
IPTV Market Leaders Report - December 2011 (Fall/Winter Edition).
Published: December, 2011
Price: US$ 5.200,00
The study tracks over 100 IPTV vendor companies or divisions that are leading the IPTV market globally and in four geographical regions – Asia, Europe, North America (NA) and ROW – based on the deployments in 934 IPTV service providers (SPs) worldwide. The study ranks and evaluates the position of vendors that provide IPTV access systems, video headend (encoder) systems (VHE), video-on-demand server software (VOD), set-top boxes (STB), middleware (MW), and content protection/digital rights management (CP/DRM).
The new feature of the report involves a breakdown of service providers into five “tier” levels, based on the number of subscribers each service provider has, which gives a different view of how vendors are working with service providers as well as sheds light on which of them are preferred by the smallest providers.
Moreover, the tracking of the growth prospects for each vendor company, based on the number of active customers it has who are “significant deployments”, is also provided.
