"With widespread use of 'content peripherals' such as digital cameras and portable MP3 players, the home computer is gravitating toward a more central multimedia role for the average household. We expect that home networking solutions -- including Digital Media Receivers and Adapters -- will be purchased in growing numbers, especially as the service provider community adapts its existing customer premise equipment to receive IP-based digital entertainment content."
