2012-2013 Broadcast/Pro Non-Linear Editors Report

Nonlinear editing systems (NLEs) will continue to grow over the next three years, in spite of major technological changes that have left many high-end editors bereft, frustrated and storming out of the edit suite. A technologically intensive, changing business model has made nonlinear editing a challenge to both manufacturers and producers, with improvements and re-branding by Apple leaving some seasoned editors profoundly disgusted.

This is just part of the findings from SCRI’s Broadcast/Pro Video Non-Linear Editors Report . The full SCRI report provides quantitative data, based on extensive annual primary research surveys (since 1984) of broadcast and pro video facilities in each of the following end-user vertical markets: broadcast television stations, cable television stations, post production facilities (video and film), video production and multimedia facilities, corporate and institutional video facilities (government, educational, medical).

Quantitative data tables for the past year, the current year and the next forecast year show total number of end-user facilities, total number and percentage purchasing by year , total dollars spent purchasing, total units purchased, average number of units purchased per end-user facility, and average price per unit. This data is displayed for each of the six vertical end-user markets as well as for the total across the board broadcast / pro video marketplace.

In addition, charts and tables show total units by format, by price range and by market share of the leading brands.

The approximately 10 page report commences with a detailed written report of the total category as well as of each individual vertical end-user market, bringing the quantitative data tables and charts to life with insightful analysis and forecasts. The written analysis is followed by the quantitative data tables and charts.
