MRG’s IPTV Market Leader Reports (MLR) identify which IPTV systems and software companies are leading each of the six IPTV market segments: access systems, video headend systems (VHE), video-on-demand server software (VOD), set-top boxes (STB), middleware (MW), and content protection/digital rights management (CP/DRM). The data is further segmented by the following geographic regions: North America, Latin America/Caribbean, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East/Africa.
Globally, the leader in two of the six categories is Microsoft, the only company to lead in more than one category at this level. Meanwhile, Huawei leads in three categories in Asia Pacific and in Middle East/Africa, which is significant since most of the changes taking place in leadership for the IPTV market are happening in these regions. Western and Eastern Europe are a complete mixed bag as different vendors are leading in each of the six categories. In North America, Google-Motorola is the big winner leading in three categories.
The report features complete IPTV vendor rankings for each product category with totals for each region, as well as globally. In addition, vendors that are working with the top 25 global service providers (as measured by total IPTV subscribers) are highlighted in order to better gauge future growth prospects.
More than 60 vendors and 900 IPTV service providers are tracked in this report.
Market leaders are determined by the number of deployed IPTV subscribers using a given vendor’s products, except for the IPTV video headend segment which is calculated on input channels. The deliverable is comprised of a 40-page Word document and an accompanying Excel file
