‘Nontraditional’ devices to account for 25 percent of DTT receiver market, report says

Of the more than 360 million digital terrestrial television (DTT) receivers expected to ship in 2013, about a quarter will be found in “nontraditional” consumer electronics devices, according to ABI Research.

Those devices will include portable DVD players and media players and other fixed consumer electronics equipment, such as PC TV tuners, rather than standard TVs and set-top boxes.

The global DTT market’s development patterns will be influenced by regional adoption of broadcast standards. Most industrialized countries have already settled on one of several available standards for fixed and mobile digital video broadcast, with variants on DVB leading the charge, and silicon vendors are starting to produce chipsets targeting specific markets and applications. The exception is North America, which has not yet adopted a mobile broadcast video standard, although the ATSC committee has announced plans to develop one.

ABI Research has released a new DTT-related report, “Digital Terrestrial Silicon Receivers,” which focuses on the terrestrial receivers and standards that will impact consumer electronics devices.
