Video Encoders: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) July 13, 2010
Digitalization is a new buzzword of modern world, which may perhaps not be viable without the proliferation of video compression technologies. Advancements in video CODECs (compression and decompression) have been the key foundations for the delivery of digital video over multiple media applications (broadcast, cable, satellite, IPTV and others). Historically, video was stored as an analog signal on magnetic tape and over the time with latest technologies in place, compact disc entered the market as a digital-format replacement for analog audio and video. Currently, the ongoing digital trend is endorsing demand for the delivery of quality video at lowest possible bit rates over multiple media, and thus driving growth for video encoders.
While the demand for video encoders is expected to be driven by local digital mandates, a higher risk for postponement exists in many regions due to financial constraints of broadcasters for supporting capital expenditures. Despite continuously increasing product penetration, the market is being challenged by the freeze on capital expenditure and investment cutbacks resulting in intense competition and increased pricing pressure. However, digital mandates in Western Europe, China and other Asian regions are likely to boost growth in the market. North America leads the global video encoders market, as stated by the new market research report on video encoders
Although Cable TV remains to be the preferred pay-TV service globally, its revenues are expected to be affected by the economic recession and limited investments by cable operators on digital equipment. Demand for satellite encoders is also likely to be affected. On the contrary, IPTV represents the fastest growing end-use application segment for video encoders globally. IPTV services are also gaining considerable penetration in the Asian and European markets for offering subscribers with interactive services, capability of recording content on PVR devices, games, and VOD. The increasing demand for the services is likely to lead to adoption of sophisticated compression encoders offering superior bit savings.
HD and other advanced compression format upgrades remain to be the real growth drivers for the video encoders market. Penetration of HD unit is likely to exceed deployment of SD units by the year 2011, and thus vendors would be forced to supply low cost efficient products. With rise in demand by broadcasters for solutions with JPEG2000, AVC and other sophisticated compression formats, HD products remain a prospective avenue for investment.
