Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/b3vgzk/global_video) has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan's new report "Global Video Switchers Market: Continuing Digitization and Adoption of HD Propel Demand for the Global Video Switchers Market" to their offering.
This research service covers video switchers, which are used to switch between signals allowing the operators to manipulate and send the appropriate signals to the viewer. For the purpose of this study, three types of video switchers are covered - routing switchers, production switchers, and master control switchers. Evaluation of the market includes revenue forecasts and demand for the solutions over the period spanning 2011 through 2018, with 2011 as the base year. Factors driving and restraining the growth of the market along with trends and key challenges being faced by the industry are identified and discussed.
The evolution of digital technology has led broadcast facilities through a phase of transition over the years. Growth in the broadcast segment is being driven by conversion from analog-to-digital transmission and the transition to high-definition (HD) content, creating more opportunities for broadcasters, equipment manufacturers, and broadband service providers. This evolution has led to new and improved ways of digital content distribution such as digital cable, satellite and Internet protocol television (IPTV), in addition to mobile and Internet video. With the latter, end customers and subscribers can access improved audio-video quality at lower bit rates over any media. The proliferation in the amount of video content has driven broadcasters and service providers to install state-of-the-art technology products in their facilities to ensure that high-quality content can be streamed into viewers' homes through any medium. Switchers are critical broadcast equipment that facilitate managing different content inputs and outputs and, contribute to a wholesome viewing package for the end-viewer.
