Parks Associates research indicates growing consumer demand for remote access to stored media content

One-third (33%) of U.S. broadband households are looking for ways to access their stored media content from outside the home, according to international research firm Parks Associates. The firm reports 35% of these households consider remote viewing a highly appealing ability.

This demand for remote access will guide future networking plans among service providers, Parks Associates reports. The firm forecasts that over 50 million households worldwide will be using place-shifting solutions outside the home by 2012.

The research firm notes that the sphere of content access will continue to expand and currently there is no coherent strategy to facilitate remote viewing of content stored in the home. As a result, third-party vendors have moved into this space, hoping to establish themselves within this developing market.
