Future is TV-shaped, says Intel
The world's biggest chip maker predicts that by 2015 there will be 12 billion devices capable of connecting to 500 billion hours of TV and video content. The BBC reports.
Intel said its vision of TV everywhere will be more personal, social, ubiquitous and informative.
Intel's developer forum in San Francisco was told that the success of TV is down to the fact there are a growing number of ways to consume content.
Today that includes everything from the traditional box in the corner of the living room to smartphones, laptops, netbooks, desktops and mobile internet devices.
... We are seeing an amazing move of video to IP (internet) networks. By 2013 90% of all IP traffic will be video. 60% of all video will be consumed by consumers over IP networks," said Cisco's vice president of video product strategy, Malachy Moynihan.
