TV and Movie Metadata and Content Discovery for Pay TV and OTT

Purchase

Recent acquisitions have highlighted that the current break between metadata providers (TMS, Rovi and RedBee), search, recommendation and discovery engines (DigitalSmiths, Think Analytics, Jinni, Gravity) and guide / middleware providers (Cisco-NDS, Nagra, Arris, Ericsson-Mediaroom) is largely un-natural.  Bringing the data and the algorithms closer together, as well as bringing the data and presentation closer together, can result in more efficient and better experiences. This research provides critical insight into the dynamics around search, recommendation and discovery and metadata markets, how technologies are forcing business model changes, and how quickly we can anticipate customers being given improved recommendation-driven experiences.
