For any application that benefits from deeply immersive experiences, VR is often a natural fit

Steadily many analysts are aware of stakes related to applications that benefits from deeply immersive experiences. We’re starting to see some early experimentation where Virtual Reality (VR) will expand its horizons. The combination of a VR headset with a camera pass-through for merged reality experience in particular, will open it up to a much wider range of applications. We still expect the consumer segment of the VR market to hold the largest revenue share over the next five years, but eventually we anticipate the B2B opportunity will overtake the consumer space, especially if VR and related technologies do become the next compute platform, says Sam Rosen, Managing Director and VP at ABI Research.

The verticals with the most Virtual Reality (VR) activity or interest

For many analysts, the most VR activity or interest are healthcare, retail, automotive/transportation, and consumer packaged goods. According to ABI Research, training, testing, and marketing are all early target functions for VR along with vertical specific applications like treatments/therapies for anxiety conditions in medicine or virtual showrooms in retail.

The latest trend gaining momentum in the Global Military Satellite Market

The most exciting is to see that, the latest trend gaining momentum in the market is the increasing collaborative agreements with private SATCOM providers. One can also observe that, the defense agencies are inclining toward outsourcing some of their valuable mission and operation requirements from private entities. Among key vendors, we have Boeing, IAI, Northrop Grumman, Thales Alenia Space, and Raytheon.

Commission-based and monthly retainer-based pricing models in the Digital Advertising Services industry

When it comes to Digital Advertising Services Pricing Trends, it is clear that, the momentum is interesting and many analysts predict thriving future for this industry. SpendEdge analysts identify the commission-based and monthly retainer-based pricing to be the most preferred pricing models. The firm reveals that, the monthly retainer-based pricing model is safe, predictable, can be linked to bonus pricing components, and suitable for urgent consulting requirements. The commission-based model is suitable for small and mid-sized organizations since it aids them in determining the capability of the service providers.

The impact of low entry barriers for the digital advertising services market

For those who are unfamiliar, the low entry barriers for the digital advertising services market has resulted in a highly competitive and fragmented market landscape. Then, one can observe that, Suppliers are increasingly investing in technology to meet the growing demand for personalization in advertising campaigns. Buyers need to obtain the right blend of traditional and non-traditional services to achieve maximum return on investment in the category spend. It is imperative of buyers to identify and train the right kind of personnel in the required area of expertise to avoid miscommunication and mismatch of services expected.

Impact of foveated rendering in the Virtual Reality (VR) industry

While improving the VR display resolution, headset makers are also working towards development of foveated rendering, which computes the highest quality image only at the center of the human visual field. Our eyes can see full resolution only at the center of vision; foveated rendering tracks eye movement and enables the processor to render full resolution on display any area where the eyes are focusing. With efficienteye-tracking technology, foveated rendering sharpens the image at the focus point of the eyes, and reduce the resolution outside the focus point saving the graphic processing loads. Foveated rendering and eye tracking are likely to become important technologies in future VR HMDs for rendering high resolution images, according ABI Research.

Virtual Reality (VR) prototypes with higher resolution

For those who are unfamiliar, Virtual Reality (VR) prototypes with even higher resolution have already been developed. In effect, in early 2017, Panasonic demonstrated VR HMD of 6400x1440 resolution, 200-degree FOV, by using 4 LCD display with 1600x1440 resolution each. Another VR HMD maker which showcased high resolution display was Pimax; its VR prototype supports 8K resolution with 200-degree FOV. According to ABI Research, Gaming and high-end entertainment requiring higher graphics are likely to drive the demand for high resolution VR displays.

High Resolution Displays Critical for Immersive Experience Virtual Reality (VR) HMDs industry

Findings from ,numerous studies are clear, growing adoption of virtual reality (VR) devices worldwide is driving the demand for significantly higher quality displays, with almost two-thirds (66%) of VR HMDs expected to support 4K (Ultra HD) resolution in 2022, according to recent forecasts from ABI Research. For those who are unfamiliar, Displays with higher pixel density, wider field of view (FOV), and higher refresh rates are being developed to provide users with a more immersive experience. Higher resolution displays are required to solve the screen door effect caused by short distances between the user’s eyes and the VR display. Tethered VR devices which are usually targeted at gaming applications, support higher resolutions displays compared to mobile or standalone segments.

Growing demand for customized telecom software

Very exciting to see that, Telecom operators are shifting their business model to a customer-centric one from a technology-centric model. For many analysts, the adoption of customized telecom software will facilitate telecom service providers to deliver bundled services, which will enhance user experience. According to Research and Markets, Major OSS BSS functions like customer relationship management (CRM), convergent billing, business intelligence (BI), and revenue assurance need tailored software.

Various industry verticals are implementing Enterprise Content Management (or ECM) solutions and services

Steadily, one can observe that, various industry verticals are enthusiastically implementing ECM solutions and services. According to Research and Markets, the leading verticals are transportation and logistics, healthcare and life sciences, consumer goods and retail, manufacturing, and energy and utilities. The firm also reveals that, these sectors use ECM solutions to automate and protect valuable data, which is contributing to the growth of the Enterprise Content Management market across the globe.

The major reason to implement Enterprise Content Management (or ECM) solutions

For those who are unfamiliar, Enterprise Content Management (or ECM) is solution that is designed address an organization's documents management needs. Data such as Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PDFs and scanned images are managed efficiently and access is granted only to the right people when needed. The major reason to implement ECM solutions is to address business gaps, and promote business growth. Streamlining data significantly contributes in the empowerment of the workflow, according to Research and Markets.

The factors that have led to the growth of the Enterprise Content Management market

For many analysts, the growing need for regulatory content management and growing need to mitigate risk are some of the factors that have led to the growth of the Enterprise Content Management market. According to Research and Markets, Consumer and goods, government, healthcare and life sciences, manufacturing, IT and telecom, and transportation and logistics are the major verticals that have significantly contributed to the growth of the ECM market.

Images are the second fastest growing type of business content in Box, but their value remains untapped

It is now obvious that, Images are the second fastest growing type of business content in Box, but their value has remained largely untapped. Leveraging Google Cloud Vision’s machine learning capabilities, Box users can surface insights from images by detecting individual objects and concepts, capture text through optical character recognition (OCR), automatically add keyword labels to images for faster search & filtering, and easily build metadata on image catalogs to automate business processes and speed up workflows across every industry.

Advanced image recognition capabilities to enterprise content

Very interesting to see that, Box, Inc., is bringing advanced image recognition capabilities to enterprise content through an integration with Google Cloud Vision.
