Home gateways “critical” to multiscreen video

Pay-TV operators are becoming increasingly interested in delivering multiscreen video services in the home using a residential gateway, according to US firm Infonetics Research, which predicts that half of all operators will do so by 2014.

After polling pay-TV operators in North America, Latin America, EMEA and Asia Pacific, Infonetics found that just 6% currently deliver multiscreen video using a residential gateway, but many have considerable interest in doing so in future.

A separate study by Motorola Mobility last March found that the living room remains the “epicentre” of the home content experience, although viewers want to be able to move content between devices more easily.
