Multiformat transcoding revenue $600m by 2016

With more and more video content produced every day, and more of that content being
made available over the Internet either live and/or on demand, the market for the
multiformat transcoders that process the content has risen right alongside the content,
according to this latest report.

The transcoder market can be divided into transcoders that process live streams in
real-time and those that process files, and both segments are expected to grow well
through 2016. Senior Analyst Michelle Abraham adds While the file segment will see stable
growth, we expect the live market to continue its faster growth due to the number of
pay-TV providers and other content owners and producers who are delivering live streams to
PCs, tablets, and smartphones.

Additionally, there are many customers for live transcoders beside tier-one pay-TV
providers. All levels of pay-TV providers, broadcasters, and programmers use live
transcoders. Sports leagues use live transcoding for internal content production. Outside
of the media and entertainment markets, corporations, educational institutions, houses of
worship, and governments use live transcoders.

Key findings from the study includes:

        - Growth in the transcoding market, particularly in the live segment, has
          attracted new vendors in 2012. However, MRG expects some vendors to disappear in the
          future through consolidation because the market is unlikely to be able to support all
          of these vendors.
        - More vendors are now offering cloud transcoding options. Rather than
          installing on-premise transcoders, content and service providers have more options to
          use private or public cloud transcoding services.
        - The number of profiles output per input is currently stable among service
          providers as TV Everywhere content is mostly accessible only in the home. MRG expects
          to see profiles go up as content becomes more accessible outside the home and needs to
          be delivered over networks other than the service provider's own. HEVC-encoded streams
          will also add to the number of profiles processed.
        - Live transcoded streams are expected to grow to more than 2.5 million in 2016
          due to the growth in providers offering live streaming and the growth in profiles
