2013 brings record traffic to IP&TV News

With the first month of 2013 now over, we are delighted to announce that IP&TV News website has already seen record traffic levels, with over 28k unique visits to the site for January 2013.

This compares to 20k unique visits per month for the old version of the site, which was retired in May 2012 after a good few years of service.

The new site has a greater range of coverage, more intuitive access to our content (including our enormously popular industry leader interviews), and a fresh new look.

We also tweaked the name slightly from IPTV News to IP&TV News, to reflect the growing importance of over-the-top video (although managed IPTV services remain a core focus for us).

In January 2013, our 10 most popular stories were as follows (starting with the most popular):

So – thanks to our loyal readers for their visits, we look forward to making this our best year yet!

Even at this early stage, some trends which look set to dominate headlines this year include: 4K television, which will quadruple current high-definition resolutions; the super-efficient H.265 HEVC video encoding format; and MPEG DASH, which will smooth the delivery of multiscreen services by offering a common encryption framework.

What are your predictions for the IP video industry in 2013? What do you think of the new site?
