Infonetics: Multi-Screen Services to Boost Video Infrastructure Market in 2013; Cisco #1 in Cable STBs

CAMPBELL, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from 2 new video reports, Video-on-Demand (VOD) and Encoder Equipment and Video Subscribers, which tracks equipment sold to telco IPTV, cable video, and satellite video providers, and Set-Top Boxes and Subscribers, which tracks IP, cable, satellite, and hybrid set-top boxes (STBs) and over-the-top (OTT) media servers.

ANALYST NOTE

"Operators are being extremely cautious with their video infrastructure spending right now, looking to sweat their assets as much as they can knowing that a spending spree looms on the horizon to support more unicast and multi-screen services, including RS-DVR, start-over, look-back, and streaming delivery to mobile devices," notes Jeff Heynen, directing analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research. "We expect a noticeable jump in video equipment spending in 2013."

3Q12 VOD AND ENCODER MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • Infonetics has increased its long-term forecast for the overall video infrastructure market to $1.1 billion by 2016, as operators worldwide migrate to MPEG-4 HD encoders to support higher picture quality using less bandwidth and as multi-screen services take off
  • For the quarter, VOD and encoder equipment revenue fell 3% in 3Q12 from 2Q12, with all regions declining by single digits
  • Following 2 consecutive quarters of declines, spending on VOD and streaming content servers grew 1.8% in 3Q12
  • Infonetics forecasts the number of IPTV subscribers to nearly double between 2012 and 2016, from 83 million to 165 million worldwide
