IPTV vendor tracking report shows uptick for Microsoft SD

For the first time, Microsoft has moved upward to third position globally in the middleware, video-on-demand (VOD) and content protection sectors tracked by market researcher MRG.

MRG’s “Global IPTV Market Leaders Report — August 2008” is the latest in a series of reports tracking the top 100 IPTV vendors in 24 regional sub-segments based on the installed base of six video systems products in more than 660 IPTV operations.

According to the report, Verimatrix again scored in the top five vendors in all four regions and as No. 1 globally in content protection. In VOD, Thomson advanced to the top spot globally for the first time, and Alcatel-Lucent remained the No. 1 in middleware. In set-top boxes, Motorola maintained its top position globally, while competitors Sagem, Cisco and Amino are showing the ability to close the gap.

Going forward, companies like Ericsson, Thomson, NEC, Nortel and Cisco are expected to create strong turnkey alliances with various companies on a regional and local basis to compete with the strong regional successes of companies like UTStarcom and ZTE, according to MRG.
