Video Delivery Analytics: Quality of Experience and Multi-CDN Tools

The increasing need for high quality content delivery over unmanaged networks has created a difficult situation for service providers and operators. Impatient viewers have increased the number of abandoned video content streams after a network difficulty such as stream failure or buffering, leading to a loss of revenue for content owners, advertisers, and service providers. Ensuring Quality of Experience, a more subjective measurement of user satisfaction utilizing Quality of Service metrics, has become paramount in the IP and OTT video markets. The increasing number of content owners and vendors investing in the space opens an opportunity for video analytics companies to expand their offerings to provide QoE insights and measurements, often alongside network and resource optimization. This report looks at the current video analytics and QoE market, a few of the major players and how the market may evolve going forward.
