Tablet TV Gains Momentum as Viewers Flock Online for Live and Premium Entertainment and News, Ooyala Study Finds

Ooyala, the leading video streaming and monetization platform provider for broadcasters, service providers and operators, today released its Q3 2012 Global Video Index. The free report presents data collected through Ooyala’s market-leading video analytics platform, highlighting continued growth in mobile and tablet video consumption and a significant increase in live and long-form content viewing among online consumers everywhere.

The company, just named the top innovator among all online video platform providers worldwide by research firm ABI, sees a steady increase in web-delivered video viewing quarter over quarter as people tune in to television more frequently on digital devices like smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, PCs and connected TVs both in and out of the home.

Key findings in the Q3 Global Video Index report include:

  • Tablet owners spent 71% of their total tablet video viewing time watching videos 10 minutes or longer.
  • 30% of total tablet viewing time was spent watching content over an hour long.
  • The overall share of tablet video viewing grew 90% in the past two quarters.
  • The amount of time users spent watching live video on gaming consoles more than doubled in Q3.
  • Desktop viewers tuned into live video for an average of 40 minutes.

“Online video distribution continues to redefine television around the world,” said Bismarck Lepe, cofounder and president of products for Ooyala. “For premium content providers, the ability to closely monitor consumption across devices and across an entire network is critical. It’s the only way to have a holistic strategy for optimizing revenue. This requires sophisticated and actionable analytics, which is the core focus of Ooyala innovation. Our customers are on the forefront of online video with what our data scientists like to call performance-enhancing data.”

Major operators and service providers around the world are taking note of the increasing fragmentation of video across devices, and Ooyala’s ability to measure consumption and maximize revenue opportunities with online video as this shift continues.

This summer, Telstra, one of the world’s largest multi-service operators and one of Australia’s largest companies, led an investment round of $35 million to help drive standardization of Ooyala’s platform for video streaming, monetization and discovery among broadcasters and service providers. Telstra is now deploying Ooyala technology across its footprint of IP-based video offerings, and reselling the Ooyala platform throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

And in the third quarter, the Pac-12 Network became the first digital broadcast network built from the ground up for hybrid broadcast and broadband programming, using Ooyala technology TV-Everywhere authentication to serve hundreds of sporting events both live and on-demand to viewers across all screens. Telstra and Pac-12 exemplify the innovation taking place around the globe to capitalize on the fast-growing opportunity for reaching consumers on the device of their choice and on their own schedule.

Ooyala’s Global Video Index report measures anonymized viewing habits of nearly 200 million viewers in more than 130 countries every month, and processes billions of video analytics events each day. The company’s industry-leading analytics technology and real-time Big Data architecture help media companies, broadcasters, service providers and brands earn more money with mobile, multi-screen video.

The full report and infographic are available directly from Ooyala. Additional data and analyses are available on Ooyala’s VideoMind blog.

There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.
Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that microservices is a set of process techniques as opposed to an architectural approach. Yet in the book, Newman clearly includes some elements of concept model and architecture as well as p...

No matter how well-built your applications are, countless issues can cause performance problems, putting the platforms they are running on under scrutiny. If you've moved to Node.js to power your applications, you may be at risk of these issues calling your choice into question. How do you identify vulnerabilities and mitigate risk to take the focus off troubleshooting the technology and back where it belongs, on innovation? There is no doubt that Node.js is one of today's leading platforms of ...

Let's just nip the conflation of these terms in the bud, shall we?

"MIcro" is big these days. Both microservices and microsegmentation are having and will continue to have an impact on data center architecture, but not necessarily for the same reasons. There's a growing trend in which folks - particularly those with a network background - conflate the two and use them to mean the same thing.

They are not.

One is about the application. The other, the network. T...

This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better idea about whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large component makes sense for your project. This post assumes that you...

Before becoming a developer, I was in the high school band. I played several brass instruments - including French horn and cornet - as well as keyboards in the jazz stage band. A musician and a nerd, what can I say? I even dabbled in writing music for the band. Okay, mostly I wrote arrangements of pop music, so the band could keep the crowd entertained during Friday night football games. What struck me then was that, to write parts for all the instruments - brass, woodwind, percussion, even k...

Sharding has become a popular means of achieving scalability in application architectures in which read/write data separation is not only possible, but desirable to achieve new heights of concurrency. The premise is that by splitting up read and write duties, it is possible to get better overall performance at the cost of a slight delay in consistency. That is, it takes a bit of time to replicate changes initiated by a "write" to the read-only master database. It's eventually consistent, and it'...
Node.js and io.js are increasingly being used to run JavaScript on the server side for many types of applications, such as websites, real-time messaging and controllers for small devices with limited resources.

Sematext has historically had a strong support for monitoring big data applications such as Elastic (aka Elasticsearch), Cassandra, Solr, S...
