Parks Associates will participate in multiple sessions addressing new OTT video business models, second-screen strategies, and consumer research in video experiences at the 2012 IP&TV World Forum, March 20-22 in London.
According to Parks Associates, the worldwide proliferation of Internet‐connectable consumer electronics is a key driver in the deployment and adoption of IP services. In 2011, 98 million households worldwide had a smart TV, which both pay-TV and OTT providers will leverage in deploying online video services. In addition, 22 million households had an Internet‐connectable Blu‐ray player, 14 million had a digital video media player, and 74 million had a media tablet.
Parks Associates is a media partner for IP&TV World Forum. The Forum brings together broadcasters from a variety of backgrounds - smart TV, OTT, cable, satellite, terrestrial, and telco - to advance the opportunities presented by IP delivery.
