At least once a week, a projector press release is published. These are typically focused on how much brighter they are than previous models, support for 3D, 4K and other wizardly, but the pico projector market is set to boom. The combination of a pico projector and smartphone or tablet is unbeatable for those who want to travel light or organize impromptu meetings. In large company, scheduling a conference room or AV resources can be near impossible and huddling round a single PC screen or tablet gets impractical beyond two or three people. Many presentations don’t require home theater-quality size or fidelity: just being able to throw something up on the office or hotel room wall on the spur of the moment is more than adequate for collaboration. Current models include wireless technologies such as Bluetooth and Wifi and smartphone and digital camera vendors are also planning to integrate a projector into the phone. Today’s market is around $490m and is projected to grow to over $8bn by 2016 (75% CAGR).
According to a recent study from Parks Associates, it showed that customer satisfaction with Netflix surpasses both pay-TV VOD and premium broadcast TV in terms of cost and flexibility. With unlimited streaming plans starting at $7.99, pay-TV can’t compete with movies costing around $3.99 each. Although, Netflix scored lower in picture quality, there are a growing number of viewers who are prepared to trade quality for convenience and cost. With Netflix now offering 1080P streaming, its quality rating is likely to improve. Pay-TV VOD also has a significant edge over Netflix in terms of up to date content. With cable companies signing deals with content providers in turn for 28-56-day delays on DVD/Blu-ray, it’s tough for Netflix to compete on new releases.
To date, SmartTV vendors attract a small percentage of the developers that Smartphone vendors have achieved. There are two major reasons for this: Market Potential - compare the number of Brand-X TV’s vs. Android or iOS Smartphones and tablets. There really isn’t a “wrong horse” to bet on when choosing between Android and iOS: the market potential for a killer app is huge. Operating systems and SDK’s – there are thousands of developers who already develop on Android, Windows Mobile and iOS. Learning a whole new OS and SDK is a significant investment for questionable payback, not only does a developer have to choose the vendor who is likely to dominate the market, they also need consumers to use the apps. Today, the percentage of SmartTV owners who actually use apps is very low. In contrast, there are hardly any Smartphone users who don’t use apps. In an effort to attract more developers, LG Electronics and TP Vision (Philips TVs) have officially established the "Smart TV Alliance", Other TV manufacturers are alleged to be “in the process of joining”. The Alliance “aims at enhancing the Smart TV experience by creating a non-proprietary ecosystem for application developers to create attractive, platform-independent services”. The alliance doesn’t mandate that all vendors use the same operating system. Instead it is based in open web technologies such as HTML5, thereby allowing web apps to run on Smart TV's from participating members regardless of the underlying platform.
Over the next five years, low-cost, low-power, wireless-connected wearable devices will be sported by millions of consumers and patients, helping to track activity and human conditions. By 2012, the market for wearable wireless devices will grow from 20.77 million to 169.5 million. The majority of the market will be dominated by consumer, wellness and sporting goods manufacturers, such as Nike, whose products will allow users will to track the pace of run or a bike ride as well as heart rate, etc. and automatically it upload it to a compatible device or service. Healthcare is predicted to account for 20% of the market. Wearable devices will be able to monitor blood sugar levels in diabetics, heart rates in patients and even detect falls amongst the infirm. “The breadth of the potential for this market is not just drawing in consumer giants like Nike and Adidas and established healthcare players such as GE Healthcare and Philips, but a wealth of start-ups and specialist players looking to wearable wireless devices to enable a wide range of networked health applications and services,” says Jonathan Collins, principal analyst, navigation, telematics & M2M.
