Global Cloud Digital Video Recorder (DVR) Market

Global Cloud Digital Video Recorder (DVR) Market

Consumer demand for consistent access to time-shifted content across set top boxes and consumer electronics (CE) devices—coupled with the huge growth in catch-up TV content libraries and a need to move away from expensive hard drives in on-premises set top boxes—have together created a perfect scenario for a cloud-based paradigm for digital video recording (DVR) functions.

Over-the-top (OTT) services have paved the way for individually paced, on-demand, consumption models that have led to this shift in consumer behavior. This, in turn, has made the race toward cloud DVR even more inevitable. Consumers are demanding a seamless multi-screen viewing experience with the same quality of content and content experience as traditional TV. Meanwhile, service providers and broadcasters are struggling to reduce equipment costs and improve service agility.

There is keen awareness of the urgency of deploying cloud DVR within the pay TV community, but there remain several challenges that the pay TV industry as a whole needs to overcome.
