At present, the broadcasting industry is experiencing ever-increasing demand for original video content. Major competitors are spending billions on the production of new content to satisfy their existing audiences and also attract new viewers. As such, several developers and broadcasters are striving to boost their video streaming software and services by creating original content to enhance brand reputation. Availability and quality of premium live content on different devices continues to grow, as live video streaming is in its nascent stage. Viewers who were earlier watching live events and sports on TV have started to shift towards these platforms, mainly due to the availability of live video content as per their linking and convenience.
This demand-side trend is working in favor of the growth of the video streaming software market, which is projected for nearly threefold growth over the next decade.
“Artificial intelligence (AI) can help the video streaming software industry by solving the problem of making metadata more readily available. While dealing with rich video streaming software content, AI will be able to parse all the available metadata. This even includes video streaming software-based image recognition, where AI would be able to recognize the emotions of people in videos and allow users to search content based on that criteria.”
