Research and Markets: Requiem for the Television: Tablets, OTT, Faster Broadband to make Today's TV Unrecognizable

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Requiem for the Television: Tablets, OTT, Faster Broadband to make Today's TV Unrecognizable" report to their offering.

This report also considers the last major change in TV manufacturing. This was the rapid displacement of cathode ray tubes by flat screens from 2000 until today, also coinciding with the arrival of HD. Now we have to look forward to the disruption created by the arrival of 4K, and the market effect of HEVC, as well as the emergence of OTT and TV Everywhere services from Pay TV operators aware of new broadband capabilities.

Requiem for the Television also brings conclusions about the demise of over-the-air broadcasting and the rise of social networks, as well as the emergence of new UIs.

As studies of previous events in technology-driven industries have shown, major contractions appear usually at a time when disruptive innovations occur. A trigger of disruptive innovation is when something comes along that is half as good, but costs a tenth of the price. The tablet is just such a case in point. Today, we are increasingly witnessing tablets being used for television viewing.

At these points in technology history, there are structural changes in the sector eco-system and new market leaders emerge. The old rules no longer apply and some leaders fall by the wayside. Famous brand names disappear or at least go into reverse, while new names flourish.

The report shows that the old methods, of plotting existing dots to LCD TV manufacturer supplier data and extending the lines, no longer work. It describes the future market shape and points to those who will lead it.

The forecasts, observations and ideas in Requiem for the Television are essential reading for anyone that wants to know the future of the TV market in the next five to six years and who want to position themselves with the right product lines and the right investments.

We have written this report for Consumer Electronics manufacturers, Pay TV Operators, Broadcasters, all types of Network Operators, Telcos, Cablecos, Satellite and IPTV operators, and equipment and Software Suppliers to these companies, including Encoder Manufacturers, DRM specialists, Handset Makers and Chip Designers. The report is targeted at management levels for business case analysis and forecasting.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Containers are changing the security landscape for software development and deployment. As with any security solutions, security approaches that work for developers, operations personnel and security professionals is a requirement. In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Kevin Gilpin, CTO and Co-Founder of Conjur, will discuss various security considerations for container-based infrastructure and related DevOps workflows.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, will show how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants will get the download information, scripts, and complete en...
Containers are all the rage among developers and web companies, but they also represent two very substantial benefits to larger organizations. First, they have the potential to dramatically accelerate the application lifecycle from software builds and testing to deployment and upgrades. Second they represent the first truly hybrid-approach to consuming infrastructure, allowing organizations to run the same workloads on any cloud, virtual machine or physical server. Together, they represent a ver...

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing thes...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically.
