Telco TV headend sales to double by end of decade

Global telcos will construct more than 800 TV headends before the end of the decade, a report by research firm In-Stat predicts.

As a result, sales of headend equipment to telcos should more than double to $453 million by 2010. Cable will continue to represent a larger market, however, reaching $1 billion by 2010, as operators upgrade headends to handle digital video and support high-speed data technologies, the research found.

The availability in 2006 of compression equipment and IPTV set-top boxes that support the MPEG-4 H.264 format spurred new headend deployments by telcos, the report said.
