Category: Broadband Video

As the founder and CEO of a Software As A Service for broadband and mobile video publishing, syndication, and monetization, I will always have an interest in how traditional media will evolve as next-generation consumers of content shift to the Internet and mobile platforms.

Broadband in analog video distribution refers to the traditional systems such as cable television, where the individual channels are modulated on carriers at fixed frequencies.

Broadband video in the context of streaming Internet video has come to mean digital video files that have bitrates high enough to require broadband Internet access in order to view them. Broadband video is also sometimes used to describe IPTV Video on demand.

Internet video is now over one-third of all consumer Internet traffic (2009), and will approach 40% of consumer Internet traffic by the end of 2010, not including the amount of video exchanged through P2P file sharing. The sum of all forms of video (TV, video on demand, Internet, and P2P) will continue to exceed 91% of global consumer traffic by 2014. Internet video alone will account for 57 percent of all consumer Internet traffic in 2014.
