Download-to-Burn and PMPs to Drive Online Video, Says ABI
ABI’s latest report forecasts a slightly brighter future for online-delivered video thanks to such venues as portable media players. Says principal analyst Michael Wolf, “The percentage of Internet-delivered video viewed on a portable device will go from just 3% today to 16% by 2011.” Wolf explains the mechanism behind this growth, “As portable media hardware vendors such as Apple and Microsoft add networking connectivity to their products, and Sony moves away from UMD toward network-based video delivery for the PSP, more content will become portable as it becomes less dependant on the PC.” ABI also predicts an a rise in the use of increasingly available (and legal) download-to-burn services which take video off of the Internet and onto a DVD.
