Europe's digital video operators have secured early adopter laurels by deploying leading-edge technologies to offer services such as catch up TV and IPTV. With the latest developments in web delivery, including adaptive rate streaming protocols, Internet video is now behind the region's most advanced new device services. It is safe to say that the starting gun has just been fired in this race for new service competitiveness.
With concern about competition from pure play OTT providers, traditional pay-TV services must make critical business and technology decisions when upgrading their infrastructure for multi-network delivery. Fortunately, as this new marketplace matures, service providers have more options from innovative video technology suppliers that are creating strong partner ecosystems and offering advanced capabilities that offer flexibility in deployment.
