DVEO: View from the Top 2013
The Streaming industry has seen a lot of changes in the past couple of years with the greater adoption of IPTV / OTT. It has created more choice of content for viewers and challenges for content providers.
Great opportunities create greater demand for greater products variety. A prime example is the new ecosystem of the hospitality industry. This industry is looking to distribute Groomed Live (content from a satellite or cable provider) and VOD content throughout their hotels. These days they also wish to offer WiFi and other features through their STB’s (set-top-boxes) or customers’ portable devices. So with the various STB’s and portable devices in the market, this requires more groomed streams with various formats and resolutions.
The whole Video over IP industry is maturing and therefore we will see consolidations in companies and convergence of vertical markets. The driver in convergence is digital video that is amendable to off the shelf hardware. As Intel introduces more powerful CPU’s with more cores, they are supplanting DSP, ASIC’s and specialty chips which are no longer as cost effective. Off the shelf hardware can used by anyone, which gives a chance for new technology development from unforeseen sources.
All that matters is what device can service the most efficient way to the most people. This is why older established technologies are still around and being done on the same machines that are doing the latest codecs and groomed streams (containers and wrappers). All in one should be that… an all and one.
2014 will be about servicing viewers and customers, but also about laying out the roadmap and direction for times to come. DVEO is a well established supplier to the Broadcast, Cable, and Telecom industries. The secret to our health, vitality, and longevity is constant innovation.
