  Infonetics: Multi-Screen Services to Boost Video Infrastructure Market in
  2013; Cisco #1 in Cable STBs

Business Wire

CAMPBELL, Calif. -- December 21, 2012

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from 2 new video
reports, Video-on-Demand (VOD) and Encoder Equipment and Video Subscribers,
which tracks equipment sold to telco IPTV, cable video, and satellite video
providers, and Set-Top Boxes and Subscribers, which tracks IP, cable,
satellite, and hybrid set-top boxes (STBs) and over-the-top (OTT) media
servers.

ANALYST NOTE

“Operators are being extremely cautious with their video infrastructure
spending right now, looking to sweat their assets as much as they can knowing
that a spending spree looms on the horizon to support more unicast and
multi-screen services, including RS-DVR, start-over, look-back, and streaming
delivery to mobile devices,” notes Jeff Heynen, directing analyst for
broadband access and pay TV at Infonetics Research. “We expect a noticeable
jump in video equipment spending in 2013.”

3Q12 VOD AND ENCODER MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  *Infonetics has increased its long-term forecast for the overall video
    infrastructure market to $1.1 billion by 2016, as operators worldwide
    migrate to MPEG-4 HD encoders to support higher picture quality using less
    bandwidth and as multi-screen services take off
  *For the quarter, VOD and encoder equipment revenue fell 3% in 3Q12 from
    2Q12, with all regions declining by single digits
  *Following 2 consecutive quarters of declines, spending on VOD and
    streaming content servers grew 1.8% in 3Q12
  *Infonetics forecasts the number of IPTV subscribers to nearly double
    between 2012 and 2016, from 83 million to 165 million worldwide
