As broadband connectivity spreads around the world, IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) is beginning to reshape the industry. In 2007, the number of households using telco/IPTV services grew to over 14 million worldwide (Parks Associates, April 2008). That number is expected to grow to more than 80 million households by 2011 (Strategy Analytics, January 2007). Providers who wish to survive must have the ability to deliver compelling IP based content, services, and high definition video.

Broadcast International’s President and CEO Rod Tiede gives a high-level overview of the IPTV market and the opportunity for broadcaster and cable operators, satellite, and even mobile and wireless providers. Broadcast International and its CodecSys compression technology leverages the limited bandwidth typical of the DSL networks many consumers access, and makes it possible to send up to four times the video channels over the same connection, with no loss in video quality.
