The Set-top box (STB) market is, in many ways, the perfect case study of the challenges facing IoT security today. It is a mature market valued globally at $22.6B in 2020 (by Grand View Research) and appears unlikely to see significant upheaval over the coming years. Take a step back, however, and the picture becomes less predictable, as Hybrid cable boxes now support a much broader suite of functions. And with that, a new set of security challenges.
Edge AI computing has been a trending topic in recent years. The market was already valued at $9 billion in 2020, projected to surpass $60 billion by 2030 (Allied Market Research). Initially driven by computer vision systems (particularly for use in autonomous vehicles – no pun intended), the proliferation of other edge applications, such as advanced noise cancellation and spatial audio, has further accelerated the growth of the Edge AI computing market.
