Stable Market for Primary Distribution Encoders

WEST HARTFORD, Conn., April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Global Information Inc. announces the addition of a new market research report "Stable Market for Primary Distribution Encoders" at

Primary distribution encoders are used to deliver linear TV signals to the facilities of those who will be redistributing the signals to consumers. The signals may be encoded using the older MPEG-2 or newer H.264 compression schemes. In the future, we expect programmers will use the latest HEVC compression scheme to deliver both Ultra HD and HD signals.

SNL Kagan MRG expects that the overall primary distribution encoder market will be stable with segments like HD H.264 encoders growing as more HD channels are launched. SD encoder shipments will fall in regions like North America where the shipments are primarily for replacement. Emerging markets like Latin America, Asia, and the MEA are seeing greater channel growth causing shipments in those regions to grow. HD MPEG-2 encoders will continue to decline in favor of HD H.264 encoders.

This research covers the market for primary distribution encoders by compression method (including MPEG-2, H.264, and HEVC) and discusses key trends impacting the segment. Five-year worldwide forecasts for shipments, ASPs and revenues are presented by encoder type and by region. The vendors that serve this segment are also profiled. The deliverable is comprised of a PDF and an Excel file.
