    Technology abiogenesis is a rarity in the digital media industry. Although the industry’s rate of technology development may seem swift, video solutions obey – and evolve in accordance with – incremental, predictable processes. In order to think clearly about the next decade of video solutions, we need not engage in unfounded speculation, or ruminate on discontinuous, nigh-unforeseeable step changes that may or may not occur.

    The traditional broadcast-channel-plus-VoD pay TV business model is being undermined. Around the globe, the establishment of OTT and D2C content services has precipitated a conundrum: Consumers now possess the luxury of purchasing multiple, a-la-carte video services, but by the same token, categorically require a multitude of those same services in order to assemble a complete content offering.

However, new monetisation opportunities such as analytics-based programming advertising and recommendations-based content delivery can offset these additional costs. The monetisation of connected devices is also leading service operators to diversify their service provisions.
