-- Awareness of the term "Ultra HD" is higher than "4K TV" or "UHD"

BOSTON, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ultra HD, the new TV technology, should receive a positive reaction from European consumers according to the latest survey results from Strategy Analytics' ConsumerMetrix service. The report, "Ultra HDTV: More Than Half Would Buy", found that 15 percent of respondents in a survey of more than 4000 people across France, Germany, Italy and the UK said they would be very likely to buy an Ultra HDTV, and 41 percent said they would be somewhat likely to buy one in the next two years.

Other conclusions from the survey included:

  • Awareness of the term "Ultra HD" is much higher than either "4K TV" or "UHD"
  • Awareness of Ultra HD declines with age and increases with income
  • Two thirds of higher income households would be willing to buy an Ultra HDTV
  • Intention to buy Ultra HDTV peaks in the 25-34 age group
  • Other indicators of intention to buy Ultra HDTV are number of children in the household and ownership of surround sound systems

"The outlook for Ultra HD is positive, assuming that it meets consumers' performance and value expectations," says David Mercer, Principal Analyst and the report's author. "In any case our research confirms that many people are still interested in improving their big screen television experience."

Methodology: The 2013 Q4 ConsumerMetrix survey was fielded online in December 2013 and January 2014. The sample consisted of n=2024 individuals in the US and n=4095 individuals in Europe ages 15-65+. The data was weighted by country, age, gender and internet use to represent the US and European populations of internet users, respectively.

The survey question referred to in this study was phrased as follows:

"Ultra HD or 4K TV is a new type of TV which offers significantly improved images compared to today's HDTV. Assuming the price elsewhere of an Ultra HD or 4K TV was acceptable to you, and assuming the image quality was as good as is claimed, how likely would you be to buy a new Ultra HD or 4K TV within the next two years?"

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.
Organizations from small to large are increasingly adopting cloud solutions to deliver essential business services at a much lower cost. According to cyber security experts, the frequency and severity of cyber-attacks are on the rise, causing alarm to businesses and customers across a variety of industries. To defend against exploits like these, a company must adopt a comprehensive security defense strategy that is designed for their business. In 2015, organizations such as United Airlines, Sony...
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not.
