The IP Video and IPTV market space is poised for explosive growth, with global revenues for infrastructure and services expected to at least triple over the next three years. This growth creates new market diversification and expansion opportunities, but also competitive upheaval and uncertainty.

Thus, a complete understanding of the IP Video and IPTV infrastructure and services market – the vendors as well as solutions and product positioning – is more important than ever for today’s IP video and IPTV stakeholders. Those stakeholders are the operators and telecom vendors who are either making IP video and IPTV technology, selling into IP video and IPTV solutions, or planning to further evolve their own IP video and IPTV services.

In this Current Analysis telebriefing, Ron Westfall, Research Director Telecom Infrastructure Access and Applications; Bernt Ostergaard, Research Director Telecom Services Europe; and Larry Hettick, Principal Analyst, Digital Home Services, examine the key trends and drivers behind this rapidly evolving market and tackle the following key questions:

  • How is the IPTV competitive landscape evolving differently in the US versus Europe?
  • How soon before IPTV becomes mainstream and telcos start to see significant increases in ARPU?
  • Why all the recent emphasis on metadata management?
  • In the US, how much success are market leaders like AT&T and Verizon having with their video offerings?
  • In Europe, which carriers are positioned for success?
  • How real is the prospect of customized advertising in IPTV?
