Forecast: African Broadcasting in 2014 has David Hochner’s (CEO of SatLink Communications) predictions for the broadcasting and satellite markets over the next 12 months:

This year has seen a huge array of developments within the broadcasting and satellite space ranging from the rise of connected devices, OTT and Smart TV’s becoming common place in the home, the emergence of Ultra HD, or 4K as it is commonly known, through to some broadcasters starting their 3D screenings and those, such as the BBC, who have decided that 3D is not for them. 2013 has certainly been a year where broadcasters and providers alike have not been able to take a step back and admire their work, instead having to take a deep breath and prepare themselves for what the future holds.

With new technologies come new challenges and as audiences expect greater quality and greater customization of services, broadcasters, content providers and solution providers are preparing themselves for a busy 2014.
