Connected Home Roadmap Identifies Consumer Wants

The Roadmap finds that not all consumers adopt or relate to technology in the same way. Knowing what excites consumers about technology enables industry to create, develop and market successful technologies.

Digital Home Health-A Primer

The total market for digital home health services is expected to grow to $2.1 billion in 2010, fueled mainly by wellness monitoring services (CAGR 74%), Web messaging, and online consultation services (CAGR 54%).

Media Servers in the Digital Home

Annual sales of media server form factors will be significant over the next five years, to the tune of nearly 50 million shipments in 2010

DVD Insider #52 - Alice In Wonderland

Well the cat happens to be in the storage business and he knows there is a content explosion and hardware of all types need to be fed content. Then once the hardware gets the content it needs to be stored…somewhere, somehow.

DVD Insider #54 - Bell, Sarnoff Together at Last

If they had spent more time together and merged their respective laboratories in Murray Hill and Princeton we wouldn't have two content transport systems fighting over who is going to service our home today.

HD-DVD First out of the Gate at CES

Whether Blu-ray manufacturers know it or not, it is now a horse race for the mind share and eyeballs of the consumer, and early reports in from CES seem to indicate that the HD-DVD camp is first out of the starting gate and taking a lead in that race.

Making TV Meaningful

IPTV has the potential to cause a paradigm shift in telecommunications services, and service providers, especially telecom operators, have a great opportunity to increase customer ARPU. With the addition of video into the package, things become more complicated. Consumers attach more value when it comes to video. Quality and quantity of video content are important issues that drive consumer preferences.

Reaching the Unreachable Consumer

Tools such as the Internet should be leveraged to provide more of the interactivity and commerce activities associated with product research and purchase. These tools can also reinforce the messages that consumers receive via traditional advertising methods and give both content producers and advertisers more effective ways of measuring their audiences.

TechWatch 2005

Wired and wireless networks are slowly coming home sparked by sharing everything! Suddenly people are latching onto the idea of having a centralized storage solution that handles the whole families needs.

TechWatch 2006

2006 - New Versions of Kong's Script: * He's always been king of his world, but we'll teach him fear. * Don't be alarmed, ladies and gentlemen. Those chains are made of chrome steel. * Oh no, it wasn't the airplanes. It was beauty that killed the beast. In the 2006 remake of King Kong there are a number of different endings. Some of the people at the foot of the Empire State Building will be rooting for Kong…some for the toy airplanes…some for Fay. But most folks? They'll go home saying, "yeah it was a pretty good movie…and it was cheap! Heck in New York we've got lots of big gorillas."

What Isn't Going To Happen In 2006

Well, we certainly will not see an amicable solution between HD DVD and Blu-ray DVD formats. Set top boxes will not be replaced by media center PCs and other emerging devices in 2006. Another hot button topic is rights management and consumer fair use. The industry will not see unanimous solutions or resolutions in this regard either.

A Look at the Digital Home Market

Most consumers don't consider watching TV from their PC to be an essential part of the digital home yet. It is the ability to move photos and music from PC to TV and to stereo and vice versa that is driving sales of Media Center products.
