Benefits of Technology

The mind of technology is breeding grounds for new inventions, while the benefits with technology serve to make life so much more interesting than, say a hundred years ago. I have to admit sometimes I wonder if it’s more enjoyable.

What would we do in today’s society without the benefits that technology provides? A year or so ago I stopped at a yard sale. Among the various things for sale, there were a few science fiction books a man was selling, claiming he was selling them for his son.

As I was paying for the books a statement made by the man at first angered me. Then a feeling of pity replaced my rising anger. Obviously, this man had little tact and was no salesman. Mostly I believe I felt sorriest for his son.

He said he wondered what kind of mind would read such trash. One thing for sure, if we all had such closed minds like this man’s, we would still be in the horse and buggy days. Like the man said, none are as blind as he that refuses to see.

The state of imagination, combined with a hunger to explore, has sent men to the depth of the seas, and then raised him to the height of the stars. An ability to imagine something combined with the hunger to turn that “Idea” into a reality this is what drives the science of technology.

Technology can be a double-edged sword, with the convenience and ease of life that they help provide. As in most things, you have to take the good with the bad. Unfortunately, intelligence and imagination do not run only to those with good intentions.

The mind of the thief that would steal from you, as well as the vicious malcontents that design malware to do harm, these to take advantage of technology and turn it to the detriment of you and your property.

As a matter of fact the benefits of technology are all around us, from waking in the morning, to making a phone call, driving your car, or logging on to your computer. I can find few things where technology does not benefit in one means or another.

Even life has been extended due to the benefits of medical science and technology. The breakthroughs in medical equipment and technique alone in the last fifty years surpass those of a thousand preceding years.

As in the way of things, one man throws the ball as far as he can, then others pick it up and run with it as far as they can, then passing it on to others, who do the same until the goal is achieved. To that end, I say thank God for dreamers.

Moving East: Pay TV in Central and Eastern Europe

According to Central and Eastern Europe Pay TV Market Monitor by IHS Inc, the number of pay TV subs has faced the 31% growth between 2010 and 2015. There were over 75.9 million homes connected to pay TV services and the marked has reached €5.02 billion. Such a boost has mostly fallen on the shoulders of Russian and Polish viewers. Let’s have a closer look:

Pay TV Geography

Poland – the Highest Revenues

Despite being quite small, Poland has the highest pay TV revenues among the countries of the region. The benefits reached €1.69 billion in 2015 and they keep growing. The only thing that can affect this growth is Netflix launch in early January 2016.

However, most of reports say that it won’t have a significant impact on cable, DTH and IPTV base due to high prices and lack of polish content.

Romania – the Highest Penetration

It was 93 percent at the end of 2015, which is an incredible number for the region and even beyond. It is higher than in Norway, Finland, Sweden, France, the UK, Germany and Spain. Most of Romanian pay TV fans are located in urban areas and prefer cable TV.

Russia – the Biggest Alterations

Though pay TV revenues have increased by 20 percent in 2015 if measured in rubles, they’ve decreased by 9.25 percent in euros. The main reason for this was the ruble depreciation by 33 percent against the euro in 2015. Also many foreign media companies have left the Russian market and now 80% of Discovery, Turner and Viasat channels belong to National Media Group.

What standard does Eastern and Central Europe choose?

Now cable TV is a clear leader which owns 48 percent of pay TV subs. Satellite has 38 percent and 13 percent are left for IPTV. Cable will stay on the top till 2020 even being under satellite/IPTV pressure.

The Pay TV penetration will also grow significantly mostly due to new IPTV subs. The IPTV will have the highest growing rate among these three standards, but not as high as in Western Europe where the number of IPTV subscribers has already overtaken the number of satellite TV fans.

What is the Most Perspective Niche?

According to the information above, IPTV may become the most reasonable investment, as the cable TV popularity will fall and satellite industry already has a high competition level. IPTV is quite a new format for this region. Due to this there are a few pros and cons:

Growth drivers:

  • Small competition
  • Growing interest
  • No need for too much equipment
  • Minor investments
  • A lot of local content which is in high demand

 

Restraints:

  • Lack of experience
  • The Set-Top boxes market is still developing: though there are some reliable set top box suppliers, there are still a lot of fakes on the market which attract by low price but may be poor at work.

By paying attentions to these drivers and restraints, it’s possible to launch a profitable IPTV/OTT project within the shortest terms. The lack of experience may be compensated by foreign case studies or by cooperating with companies which provide complex solutions.
