Online-Video Boom Sends Industry Figures To Istanbul Event In October

Figures from the OTT content broadcasting industry are heading east this October for the TV Connect EurAsia East Europe 2012 conference and exhibition.
A flurry of new services are coming to market in eastern Europe, with Turkey at the centre of growth, making Istanbul a perfect location for 2012's event.
The topic on everyone's lips is bound to the online-video sector boom.
In Eastern Europe, online-video is expected to account for 27% of all internet traffic by 2015.
Michael Dean, Research Analyst at Informa Telecoms & Media, said: "The number of connected devices is set to dramatically increase over the next five years. In 2011 the installed base of all in-home connected devices was about 6.1 million, but we forecast that by the end of 2016 the number will have risen to just under of 100 million, fuelling additional OTT-service launches."
Focussing on OTT content, connected devices, delivery platforms and the opportunities surrounding OTT-services, the sixth annual TV Connect EurAsia East Europe (previously known as IP&TV Forum EurAsia East Europe), holds more relevance than ever for CE Manufacturers and TV Providers including broadcasters, IPTV, OTTtv, cable and satellite players.
Key players already signed up include Turk Telekom, Turkcell, TTNET, Czech Televizion, Sony, Samsung Electronics Europe, Stream (formerly, TV Kiss, INEA, VIPnet and TRT.
This takes place at the Marmara Taksim Hotel in Istanbul, Turkey, on 9-10 October 2012.
