Research released excerpts from its latest Broadcast
and Streaming Video Equipment and Pay TV Subscribers report,

“We are very early in a long-term transition to software-based and SDN-controlled
video processing, but we believe the shift will result in increased
spending on both multiscreen encoders and content delivery network
equipment, as pay-TV and over-the-top (OTT) providers begin purchasing
these platforms to more efficiently process and distribute video
content,” says Jeff

Pay-TV providers are using a mix of platforms, from GPU-based devices
to software-only, to create massive and distributed encoding
horsepower in the cloud—all managed centrally via software-defined
networking (SDN) controllers
Harmonic continues to lead the global broadcast and streaming
video equipment market, although its revenue share decreased about one
point while some competitors gained in 2013
