The way we are consuming video and digital media is rapidly changing from even only 10 years ago when cable television was the dominant provider of video to the consumer. With the proliferation of mobile devices and new in-home viewing options, along with the anytime, anywhere availability of video and other digital media, there is a demand for broad range of new and improving technologies to support this ecosystem, including
- Video Streaming
- Video Coding
- Content Delivery
- Media Encryption and DRM
TechPats has a number of technical experts with extensive experience in, R&D, technology and product development in the above technology areas.
Characterization of the Area/Industry Impact
With the advent of numerous OTT streaming platforms, “cord cutting” is becoming a major issue for the traditional cable providers as their established and long-time customer base is moving to other platforms. Couple that with dwindling numbers of potential new subscribers as the next generation of consumers enters that market that have grown up largely outside the traditional cable ecosystem, and it becomes necessary for the cable companies to continue to evolve and provide new services and enhanced platforms. Furthermore, streamed content has now outpaced the sale of like physical media, such as DVDs and Blu-ray discs, whose sales are declining year over year.
