Research and Markets: 2011 North America Broadcast Equipment Purchasing Trends: Purchasing Trends Bullish for 2012 to 2014 Double Digit Growth Expected in CAPEX Budgets
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/67476313/2011_north_america) has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan's new report "2011 North America Broadcast Equipment Purchasing Trends: Purchasing Trends Bullish for 2012 to 2014 Double Digit Growth Expected in CAPEX Budgets" to their offering.
The goals of this research study are to provide a broad understanding of purchasing trends surrounding broadcast equipment (which includes video servers, cameras, and encoders) among broadcasters in the United States and Canada. This research study also investigates what factors are considered important for purchasing decisionssuch as price, performance, and brand preference. The study also enables readers to understand how small (those with 100 or less employees) and large (those with more than 100 employees) broadcasters differ in their needs and perceptions, which allows for a better understanding of the market trends and outlook.
High definition (HD) and advanced technologies are the primary drivers for equipment purchases and upgrades in the broadcast industry in North America. While analog transmission was switched off in the United States in June 2009, and in August 2011 in Canada, significant footprints of standard definition (SD) and analog remain, as almost one-third of the content is produced on tape. The broadcast industry typically exhibits a three to five year purchase cycle for new equipment, and many broadcasters appear to be gearing for an upgrade in their stations.
Recovering from the impact of the 2009 economic recession, broadcasters expect a xx percent (among small broadcasters) to xx percent (among large broadcasters) increase in budgets. Broadcasters, small or large, will need to invest in new equipment to keep up with competitors. Broadcasters expect to invest up to xx percent of their budget in video servers, cameras, and storage.
The leading vendors across various categories include Sony, Cisco, Grass Valley, and Harris. However, many broadcasters use multiple brands for the same application, even though the nature of usage may differ. Hence, brand perception results in this survey are not necessarily reflective of supply side trends. Such exceptions have been pointed out at times in the relevant sections of the analysis.
