Infonetics: Apple's HTTP Live Streaming, HTML5 are Top Picks Among Operators Delivering OTT Video
CAMPBELL, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its IP Set-Top Box Features and Vendor Leadership: Global Service Provider Survey, which analyzes the trends and assesses the needs of service providers deploying IP set-top boxes (STBs) to deliver video services.
"Apple's (News - Alert) HTTP Live Streaming tops the list of video streaming services that operators think are important for delivering over-the-top video, followed by HTML5," says Jeff Heynen, principal analyst for broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research. "We expect HTML5 adoption to grow, especially if the W3C adds new security features (a top concern among content owners), as it can scale quickly across multiple platforms and has already gained the support of Apple, Google, Samsung, Microsoft, Netflix, Amazon, Facebook (News - Alert) and LinkedIn."
Heynen adds: "In our talks with carriers, we're also seeing growing interest in MPEG-DASH, a new standard for video codecs. Backed by companies like Microsoft (News - Alert), Netflix and Adobe, it's gaining traction in North America and Europe, and we expect it to get more support from vendors in coming years."
