The explosion in OTT platforms has created new opportunities for traditional media companies to reach larger audiences worldwide.

In many ways, 2020 has forced us to rethink norms we’d previously known to be true. But when it comes to video delivery, the primary concerns and demands from 2019 remain the same, if not elevated by the pandemic: bandwidth is still limited and consumer demand is still growing. And with people continuing to consume increased levels of content at home, the bandwidth challenge remains. As we look ahead to 2021, content distributors and video service providers must ask themselves: How do we deliver high-quality video at scale efficiently, while maintaining a high-quality user experience? The answer is a bit like 2020 – it’s complicated.

Research reveals that there were around 2.4 billion Internet users in 2014. By June 2019, that number doubled to 4.4 billion. That’s an 83% increase in the Internet user base in a span of just five years. For the media and telecommunications sector, this raises an all-important question: How far can current underlying networks scale to accommodate the growing traffic on the Internet?
While the good news is that no one single network will need to support this burgeoning traffic, there remains some scepticism around existing networks and their ability to keep pace with the bandwidth demands of next-generation connected devices.
Consumers’ insatiable and growing demand for streaming media on ever-greater numbers of OTT platforms offers fantastic opportunities, as well as daunting challenges, for content providers. The goal is to deliver high-value content tailored to the specific requirements of each platform, including multi-language transcriptions and compliant closed captions, and to do it as fast and efficiently as possible. Speed and efficiency are especially important in a news and entertainment environment, where every second counts in delivering breaking stories.
