HD programming services to drive growth in uplink industry, says In-Stat

The need to support HD programming services will contribute to solid, sustained incremental revenue growth for the satellite TV uplink industry worldwide, according to market research firm In-Stat.

Growth will continue pushing the value of the industry to $306 million through 2010, according to the researcher.

Recent In-Stat findings show:

  • Satellite TV uplinks will upgrade their video equipment at a regular pace for many years to come;
  • New technologies may slow down the need to launch new satellites, but HDTV will eventually force the issue;
  • Strong opportunities will develop for the larger manufacturers of professional video equipment.
