MPEG Broadcast Contribution Encoders Set to Reach More Than $320M in 2017
Contribution encoders are used to compress the video and audio stream coming from the camera, truck or venue before it is transmitted to the studio. Contribution encoders are also used for compressing the stream as it is moved between studios.
Encoding systems can range from PCs with capture cards costing under $1,000 to 4:2:0 8-bit encoders with dual audio channels costing several thousand dollars to high end 4:2:2 10-bit 1080p encoders with 16 audio channels costing tens of thousands of dollars. While PC systems are not included in its numbers, the author feels that this segment of the market will reach about $320 million based on more than 20,000 units in 2017.
Though there will be shifts in the market with some segments growing more slowly than others, the overall contribution encoder market will grow in 2014 after declining in 2013. We will see the normal seasonal patterns with greater shipments in even years for major events like the World Cup and the Olympics. Cellular newsgathering equipment is relatively new in the market, so there is a higher growth trajectory projected for that segment of the market.
There are many broadcasters who have not upgraded their newsgathering capabilities to HD, so replacing older SD MPEG-2 equipment with new HD H.264 equipment will continue with the overall market shift to HD. By 2017 SD encoders will account for 13% of the market compared to 35% in 2013. ASPs will decline each year so vendors will need to increase their shipments each year to keep their revenues stable higher prices for HEVC encoders will help with revenue.
