|Frost Radar in the Global Video Managed Services Market|
The Frost Radar focuses on the global video managed services market and the related research with a base year of 2017. Video managed services, by definition, are services where entire portions of a content provider’s digital media workflows are outsourced to a third party. Video managed services are distinct from professional services or consulting services in that video managed services are round-the-clock outsourcing instead of one-time engagements with the option of ongoing maintenance. Video managed services are also different from cloud-based outsourcing, which involves the entire operation rather than just the computation components being outsourced. In terms of solution features and structure, the video managed services market can vary depending on the definitions and scope of vendors. This creates significant market confusion when content providers and others in the M&E space examine vendors that offer video managed services. As such, Frost & Sullivan has excluded video managed services providers that are platform-as-a-service or that consult on OTT D2C strategies.
