VOD Back Office

Classic VOD systems do not have what it will take to transition to the multiscreen future. A host of limitations have been encountered in these systems, as service providers seek to adapt to user expectations set by availability of new technologies and, in some cases, OTT services. Some of the key limitations include single screen oriented, support for only a single codec and/or container format, designed around only managed networks, simplistic business model support, and lack of syndication and/or origination capabilities.

The evolution to multiscreen business models, the increasing role of commoditized IT hardware (including both servers as well as networking equipment) capable of meeting today's video performance needs, and changing roles within the content delivery system have elevated the role of video content management systems in handling current VOD back-office functions. Some company's solutions have kept up better than others. 

This report provides market share data for leading classic VOD companies as well as video content management companies, plus market forecasts for the segments and an overview of product competitiveness within the space.
