“Place-shifted” Content Market Spurred by Shared Photos and Games
Stored personal and commercial content will drive consumer demand to access multimedia services from multiple locations in, outside of the home

Dallas, Texas February 3, 2005 — Digital photography and multiplayer gaming are the key applications motivating consumer interest in “place-shifting” solutions, according to Parks Associates. The market research firm has found these applications, which generate high interest among consumers, hold the greatest potential for success in developing portable content and services for the mass market.

“Content owners, networking component manufacturers, and mobile applications players all stand to benefit from this high consumer interest in ‘place-shifted’ content,” said Kurt Scherf, vice president and principal analyst for Parks Associates.

Parks Associates’ consumer surveys have found that consumer place a higher premium on content personalization, storage, and sharing services that offer more in terms of flexibility and ease-of-use. Scherf indicated that content owners, developers, and providers should begin to build business models that take these preferences into account.

“Approximately one-quarter of U.S. households serve as crucial leading adopters of residential and mobile solutions,” Scherf said. “When questioned about new means of access to personal and stored content, they expressed the highest interest in sharing photographs with friends and loved ones. That is the application with the highest potential for success in this budding market for mobile ‘place-shifting’ solutions.”
