Re: Welcome
Yes excited to have him! I think coverage about video is so necessary especially in today's society. Video is becoming more and more relevant every day. I can't wait to see what's coming up when it comes to video.

Video Explosion
Some consumers own multiple devices that can be used to spend time online, access the internet and applications, for example, laptop, ipad, desktop or multiple cell phones (work and personal) and multiple devices among family members in one home.


When all of them of multiple family members in one home are using the internet or streaming data this usage must be provided and provided quickly and without issues.

 

I believe Big Video will increase as many subscribers are ditching large cable providers such as Comcast, TimeWarner and DirecTV who continually increase prices but don't increase the quality of customer service.

There is no doubt about it. Looking at the speed video is evolving this push back for treaditional cable companies may not be too far away.

Re: More video expansion
Absolutely.

Reaching to the levlel of zettabyte is certainly something with in such a short span. So we could only imagine the future with some forecast stats that @Adi provided. Surely going to be interesting.

Reaching the zettabyte is so impressive! And you're right in such a short period of time. It's exciting because who knows where we'll be in five or ten years from now!

Strategy
The Video Transformation track on this site aims to provide the insight and information that operators will need to make key strategic decisions to not just cope with, but actually benefit from, the Big Video Explosion.

Very good poit.

The video operator companies should not limit themselves to be able to just cope with the video explosion trend. But they must undersatnd it is beyond that point. There must be an adequate strategy to address this emerging trend to make sure they are well aligned to cater and thus making sure that there is a clear set of value add and benefit derived out of this whole thing.

Welcome in!
I've already been enjoying your work, Adi.

I wonder whether there isn't a natural limit to the growth of mobile video and big video: people already spend so much time looking at screens, and so many people have already been recruited into perpetual viewership, that it seems like all potential for market expansion/growth has been tapped. One person can only watch a bit more than one screen at a time, and people have to sleep (and at least watch some things that are not purely idle choices); even allowing for every subsistence farmer, service worker, and factory worker in the world to somehow be on the screen from wake to sleep (I'm not sure I want to think about how the world will run, or not, in that situation), don't we eventually run out of eyes for all the content?

Re: managing video
Current video consumption is still mostly downloading.. and not uploading. I wonder if there will be a second explosion of symmetric video traffic someday. It's starting to happen with some Vine videos and short clips, but it's not clear if users are going to want to upload as much as they download?

Re: managing video
@mhhf1ve  that's very true. Uploading is also ramping up but the sheer volume of downloads is so monumental that it gets lost in the mix. Video communications and enterprise video applications are likely to grow substantially in coming years, so I think that might affect upstream capacity significantly. But as a percentage of downstream, I think it will still be comparatively low.

Heh. do you need another picture? I have a Flip video camera somewhere... fascinating how that gadget was totally killed by GoPro and other cameras.

Re: Off on a tangent...
I wanted a flip cam forever and finally got my hands on one about 2 months before iPhones added video functionality. I still have videos that need to be offloaded from it though- the way the usb arm is set up, it's awkward to connect to a desktop.

Flip video cams were well designed back in the day. And it's amazing that there aren't more copy-cat devices out there with similar easy-to-use interfaces. It's disconcerting that good UI is so hard to reproduce.

Video growth: Investments versus Business objective
Tks very interesting.

Video is indeed often already more than 50% of Telco mobile data traffic. For some Telcos, the revenue split between voice and data revenue is now 50/50. Putting those numbers together, tells us that video alone drives 25% of Telco revenue today. The more people watch video, the more mobile data revenue is made (assuming not flat rate). Actually, by introducing methods to improve QoE, this video consumption can be further increased and while this require invesments, this drives new costs. That's why I think that one of the "hot" questions in the industry is indeed how to define the "optimum" between the required investment  to support video growth and the business objective for new revenue (as well satisfaction).
