The bandwidth limitations and reliability issues restrain the content streaming market. The quality of the video or audio streaming highly depends on the data transfer rate of a network or Internet connection, the total time required for a packet of data to travel from one point to another, and the capacity of the network to offer consistent services.
The bandwidth is important for high-quality video streaming, as sending large amounts of video and audio data over the Internet requires large data transfer with a maximum transfer rate. The higher quality video uses more bandwidth than lower quality video.
Any long-term disruption of Internet services related to bandwidth, latency, and network reliability can limit the quality of video/audio streaming and thereby halt the growth of the content streaming market.
Companies in the video streaming market are increasingly implementing blockchain technology and AI to have cost benefits. Blockchain technology allows the video streaming providers to store data on thousands of servers globally that help the companies to have cost cuts associated with the content or massive video files stored on servers.
For instance, Video Coin, a video streaming providing startup is thinking to invest in implementing blockchain technology to provide video content at lower prices. Also, the companies in the video streaming market are using artificial intelligence to improve their content quality.
For instance, streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Spotify make use of machine learning a subset of artificial intelligence (AI) to improve the user experience by tracking the user’s interests and recommending the content of user interest. AI also improves video quality by reducing video buffering through video compression.
