SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- By 2017 ABI Research expects over-the-top (OTT) revenue to quadruple to $32 billion, up from the expected $8.2 billion in 2012. Subscription services, like Netflix, have led the OTT markets the past couple of years, which has helped push the market towards healthy growth. By 2014, however, ABI Research expects OTT rentals to surpass subscription revenues.

Practice director Sam Rosen commented, “Connected CE and mobile devices continue to push consumer behavior towards newer forms of media distribution like OTT and multiscreen services. Pay TV services will continue to thrive, by implementing multiscreen services and supporting OTT content. In the end we expect an amalgamation of services that complement each other for many consumers.”

In time, advertising, like OTT rentals, is expected to pick up momentum as ad dollars increasingly shift to the OTT market. Connected CE and mobile/portable devices in particular present additional consumer touchpoints and enable more creative ways to connect or interact with consumers. These devices are capturing more of our attention as many consumers claim to multitask while watching TV. Finding new ways to better engage consumers through OTT experiences, therefore, will prove increasingly important as consumers adopt new viewing behaviors.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
