Benefitting from Growth in Software for Home Media Gateways, Client-side TV Software Tops $800M in 2017

Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) June 23, 2014

According to the latest SNL Kagan MRG report released today, today’s consumers don’t want their multichannel content confined to the living-room TV set. For operators, the focus is shifting from traditional set-top boxes (STBs) to home-media gateways which convert digital media streams between networks and the software that enables these devices.

While total client-side STBs will grow by about 5% through 2017, home media gateways (also known as IP gateways or home media servers) will more than double, providing significant opportunity for software vendors, explains Norm Bogen, research director at SNL Kagan MRG.

Client-side software vendors will see diminishing growth rates for total STBs, as this market is expected to peak in 2015 and remain fairly static in 2016 and 2017.

The significant growth in home media gateways (a subset of total STBs) will be driven by increased demand in North America and Western Europe, which will account for the vast majority of total shipments between 2013-2017. Asia-Pacific and Latin America will experience accelerated growth in the latter years of the forecast.”

This report provides in-depth analysis and global forecasts by region for client-side TV software solutions implemented on set-top boxes and home media gateways. Presented are details on 11 vendors, their products, markets, key customers, vendor partnerships, and their technologies competitive advantages and limitations, detailed with more than 150 features and use cases.

The in-depth coverage will benefit an operator looking to enhance its service platform, or a software vendor competing in a rapidly growing market. SNL Kagan MRGs expert perspective and exclusive data will enable either to take advantage of this significant opportunity.

Over the past few years, Advertising.my has been aggressively expanding the reach and offerings through the use of Malaysia bulk SMS for its clients and partners in Malaysia. Advertising.mys reputation and corporate image in the digital advertising segment is among the top in Malaysia where the agency offers above, below and through-the-line advertising services to many large corporations, public companies as well as in the small-and-medium industries. Apart from this, Advertising.my partners and collaborates with some of the top and leading online agencies in the implementation of campaigns, events and other activities.

As part of this expansion, brand owners and advertisers will now be able to enjoy wider reach of markets through the use of Bulk SMS service which will be covering countries in the South East Asia region.

This is made possible through the acquisition of a new and more powerful SMS gateway managed by Advertising.my that facilitates SMS marketing in various countries. Instead of being limited to Malaysian customers, brand owners can now send SMS to customers in countries like Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore and Vietnam as well as to Australia.

The launch will include a golf trip to Cameron Highlands, Malaysia. Principal partners and clients will be offered an all-expense trip to Melbourne at one of the top golf resorts there. The trip will convey how SMS marketing in the South East Asia will be effective, impactful and beneficial for their brands and products and how they can use this option in delivering more meaningful messages. Advertising.my will be top brands like Honda who will be sponsoring the transport vehicles during the trip.

Clients who use the new bulk SMS option will be provided with their own account in which they can customize and send the messages from their own platforms. Training on how to use the system will be conducted to ensure the smooth implementation of the system. From there, clients will be able to enjoy the convenience of sending the SMS as and when they are required with an automatic payment module as well.

Through the clients application, there are several functionalities which they will enjoy which includes real-time reporting and analysis. Where needed, reports can be generated very quickly and can be customized to be analyzed and studied in terms of effectiveness, success rates and other data.

The platform used to facilitate the sending of Bulk SMS is independent in terms of language and characters which means that clients can now design their messages in all types of ways that include bulk SMS in Chinese and Arabic characters. Where necessary or required, Advertising.my will assist the clients on creating the most appropriate content to be delivered to potential market segments in the other countries while consultation and advice on understanding the markets are offered as well. This will give the advertiser a better understanding and grasp of foreign market segments and how the consumers there will react to the SMS sent by the advertiser so that expenditure is justified.

As part of this new programme, Advertising.my will be offering a wide range of benefits and promotions for its clients. Apart from the training and hands-on practical sessions, an marketing ebook on making money with SMS will be given at no cost. This guide book provides very useful and relevant information and is an excellent resource for the clients to learn about how to use SMS effectively.

Global Digital English Language Learning Market Surges

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 18, 2014

The global market for digital English language learning products reached $ 1.8 billion in 2013. The worldwide five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) is 11.1% and revenues will surge to $ 3.1 billion by 2018, according to a new report by Ambient Insight called, “The 2013-2018 Worldwide Digital English Language Learning Market.”

This is the most comprehensive report on the digital English language learning market ever published and provides five-year forecasts for 98 countries in seven regions: 16 countries in Africa, 20 countries in Asia, 9 countries in Eastern Europe, 15 countries in Latin America, 12 countries in the Middle East, 2 countries in North America, and 24 countries in Western Europe. Revenues will more than double over the forecast period in 51 of the 98 countries analyzed in this report.

Download the free 41-page Executive Overview at:


“China overtook the US in 2013 to become the top buying country in the world,” comments Chief Research Officer, Sam S. Adkins. “The US will still be the second-largest buying country in 2018, but China will be spending more than twice as much as the US on digital English language learning products. We provide a detailed analysis by six buying segments for both China and the US in this report.”

According to Adkins, there are five major catalysts driving the global market. “There are large scale digitization efforts underway across the globe, and commercial instructional content is being ported to new digital formats,” said Adkins. “English-related education policies, consumer demand for mobile apps, the proliferation of Mobile Learning value added services (VAS), and the strong demand for specialized forms of English like business English are also contributing to the surge in revenues.”

“The top buying countries throughout the forecast period are China, the US, South Korea, Japan, and Brazil,” adds Adkins. “By 2018, Brazil will overtake Japan to become the fourth-largest buying country and the Russian Federation will overtake India to become the sixth-largest buying country. What is interesting about the top buying countries in 2018 is the emergence of Indonesia, Poland, and Malaysia. These countries now represent significant revenue opportunities for suppliers.”

Each regional section in this report includes a demand-side analysis by country and a supply-side analysis by five product types. More detailed analysis is provided for Brazil, Canada, China, Turkey, and the US.

Over 1,000 suppliers operating in specific countries in seven regions are identified in this report to help international suppliers identify local partners, distributors, and resellers.
