Will Standalone Streaming Media Players Continue?

Providing further evidence that consumers are moving toward streaming content is a new study by In-Stat that finds shipments of streaming media players to reach 3.6 million worldwide in 2011. However, the firm notes that streaming appears to be following a direction whereby it is a function within a more common consumer electronics products versus being a central function of the device. In-Stat, thus, is quick to warn that the road ahead for standaone streaming players will be "bumpy." Consider devices like the Sony PlayStation 3, which can serve as a video game console, Blu-ray player, and streaming devices for services like Netflix. With the increasing availability of Internet-connected TV sets and hybrid set top boxes, this will also impact the long-term viability of the streaming media player market. Nevertheless, Apple TV, a product developed solely for streaming, remains the leading product on the market.

LG Display, Samsung see depressed LCD market turning

Samsung Electronics Co. and LG Display, the world's top two flat-screen makers, expect the depressed LCD market to start rebounding as demand rises in China and new TV models are rolled out. Global LCD makers are hoping China, widely expected to become the world's biggest TV market this year, pulls the sagging flat-screen industry out of a year-long downcycle when oversupply pushed prices lower. European demand is faltering due to the region's debt crisis and U.S. consumers are showing little sign of significantly boosting their spending on big ticket items. After falling by one third over the past one year, TV panel prices are finally showing signs of bottoming out. Prices of 40-42 inch panels have edged up 1 percent since late April, industry data shows. In interviews with Reuters this week, Choi of LG Display and the head of Samsung's LCD business sounded upbeat on the outlook for an industry that posted widespread losses in the first quarter. Both companies control around one quarter of the flat panel market, although Samsung has a marginal advantage in revenue terms.
