The convergence of PC, consumer devices and the Internet has created an insatiable appetite for the consumer to have the choice and control over how they get entertained. The business of moving content-rich multimedia data has grown exponentially over the past several years, and has placed tremendous demands on both bandwidth and the networked storage market.
But with the rise of new technologies such as interactive TV (ITV) and music/video download services, the race to build the infrastructure continues to stagger the IT industry. Kagan Research predicts the cable industry could generate $1.6 billion in new sales of ITV services by 2009. And Apple has sold over two billion iTune songs as of January 2006, and is now using the same business model to sell video downloads.
