Research and Markets Report On New Zealand - Convergence & Digital Media

DUBLIN, Ireland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of New Zealand - Convergence & Digital Media to their offering.

The bundling of voice, data and video services (triple play) and mobile services (quadruple play) are likely to develop on a more large scale fashion in New Zealand in 2008 and 2009. Voice and data bundling has already been introduced by a number of players, including Telecom, Orcon and ihug. The introduction of ADSL2+ services, facilitated by local loop unbundling will eventually allow for faster access of bundled services including VoIP and IPTV, this faster access will also be critical for the growth of digital media services.

However it will take a couple of years for these services to become widespread and it will not be until 2012 that Telecoms old PSTN network is scheduled to be fully decommissioned. BuddeComm estimates that New Zealand could save around $10 billion over the next ten years if a proper, useable infrastructure is available. This report covers a wide range of topics surrounding convergence and digital media applications including: Video on Demand, IPTV, mobile TV, Internet portals, home media centres and e-health, and examines the local market developments.
