Forget Mourinho and Guardiola: there’s a bigger grudge match in Spain between IPTV and 3DTV.
Experts differ about which platform will emerge victorious and the latest market research says that IPTV sets will gain ground over 3D TV sets in three years time, with IPTV sets growing by 30% a year during this period. This represents some 123 million devices produced by 2014.
Analysts carry on with the same argument saying the future of television will pass from HDTV, connected TV and 3D TV. Even though a year ago 3DTV sets were expected to win over this sector due to the rising interest by most of the manufacturers to commercialise models with 3D technology incorporated, it seems that now IPTV could dominate the TV field.
The cause of this raise could very well be the lack of 3D content which plays in favour of IPTV. Although last year only 20% of TV sets distributed were ready for IPTV the market expects the business to get a big push from advanced markets such as Japan or Western Europe.
