Multiformat Transcoder Revenue to Surpass $460 Million in 2015, Says In-Stat

August 3, 2011

As more and more video content becomes available via the Internet and mobile networks, the need for video transcoding products that can ingest content in one format and output content in the video formats used for distribution will grow. New In-Stat (http://www.in-stat.com) research forecasts that worldwide revenue for multiformat transcoders will surpass $460 million in 2015.

Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) August 02, 2011

Today, video content is delivered to multiple devices over unmanaged networks with fluctuating bandwidth. As a result, video delivery must adapt to the bandwidth available on the network, the resolution and screen size of the receiving device, and the decoding capability of the receiver. As more and more video content becomes available via the Internet and mobile networks, the need for video transcoding products that can ingest content in one format and output content in the video formats used for distribution will grow. New In-Stat (http://www.in-stat.com) research forecasts that worldwide revenue for multiformat transcoders will surpass $460 million in 2015.

“The industry is at the start of multiscreen delivery and TV Everywhere. Content providers expect in a few years that as much as 75% of their content will be available via the new distribution platforms,” says Michelle Abraham, Research Director. “Multiscreen delivery, either directly on the part of content providers, or via pay-TV service providers, is driving a lot of the market for multiformat transcoders. In-Stat expects this to remain the case for the next several years. We define multiscreen as delivering content files or streams to displays of various sizes and resolutions, not just to the TV and the PC.”

Recent In-Stat research found the following:

  •     The multiscreen services from content providers are primarily being launched in the Americas and EMEA.
  •     The expectations for TV Everywhere have brought new vendors to the market in 2011, Arris, Imagine Communications, and Thomson Video Networks.
  •     In 2010, the file multiformat transcoding market grew by 72% due to the growth in multiscreen services from content providers.

The research, Worldwide Multiformat Transcoders: Driven by Digital Media Delivery (#IN1104948MBI) explores the drivers for market growth, what is most important to content and service provider customers, and the vendors that are serving the market. Five-year multiformat transcoder revenue forecasts are provided for live and file transcoders.

Vendor profiles include: AmberFin, Arris, ATEME, Cisco (inlet), Digital Rapids, Elemental, Envivio, Harmonic, Imagine Communications, Media Excel, RGB Networks, Telestream, Thomson Video Networks, and Viewcast
