Smart TV Platforms


This Competitive Assessment covers the game console, connected TV, standalone Blu-ray player, and smart set-top box markets. For part of the analysis (vendor matrices) connected TVs and Blu-ray players are combined, due to the similarities in connected platforms (by company) and high bundle rate between these devices. The analysis is divided into two parts; market shares, which reflect unit shipments for calendar 1H 2013, and vendor matrices, which rank companies based on two main categories, “Innovation” and “Implementation.” In the vendor matrices, ABI Research evaluates the features, capabilities, and interfaces of the platform, as well as look at their success in the marketplace.
