This article comes from WeChat public account: Guotai Junan Securities Research (ID: gtjaresearch)

In 1956, AT&T Labs developed the first videophone, the (Picturephone). This video phone can transmit a picture every two seconds.

In 1964, AT&T installed the earliest commercial videophone equipment in public booths in three cities, New York, Washington, D.C., and Chicago, under the name PicturephoneModI. However, the need for pre-use booking time with AT&T and the high cost of dialing in public booths for $16 every three minutes have greatly limited the appeal of this emerging technology.

AT&T's innovation eventually met a commercial failure, and the company concluded that videophone is a "finding market concept" with no commercial value.

In the late 1970s, Picturephone services ceased completely.

First, history of videoconferencing growth: from analog to digital, from wired to wireless

In the past, they are all prologues.

Despite the failure of AT&T 's analog video conferencing system, technology companies have not stopped their pace of innovation, nor have humans stopped trying to communicate video "as if they were together at any distance."

In the 1970s, due to the emergence of digital transmission, the traditional video conferencing system has been greatly improved, digital signal processing technology has gradually matured, and the research on data compression has produced the core technology of video conferencing products (CODER/Decoder). .

After entering the mid-1980s, the rapid development of large-scale integrated circuit technology, image coding and decoding technology has made breakthroughs, channel costs have decreased, providing a good development condition for video conferencing to become digital and practical.

However, during this period, the digital video conferencing system has been using dedicated coding and decoding hardware and software, requiring that the codecs used by the interworking conference terminals must come from the same vendor, otherwise they will not work properly. Therefore, the scalability and interoperability of video conferencing systems are greatly hindered.

From 1988 to 1992, on the basis of the TV conference of the National Conference, the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultation Committee proposed the unanimous norms of the World Television Conference (H.200 series of claims), and formulated a consistent video online communication form communication specification. It has formed the world's unanimously standardized video conferencing system, which provides conditions for the world video conference.

However, the shortcoming of the mobile video conferencing system in the 1990s is that the connection is fixed. Except that ISDN is capable of dialing, other network applications must perform a point-to-point permanent connection, with low bandwidth utilization, poor openness, and inconvenient setting. .

In the late 1990s, with the rapid upgrade of PC, the ability of data storage and processing became stronger and stronger. Video conferencing technology began to develop towards multimedia conference on Internet network.

Second, multi-functional unified communication management platform, entering the era of comprehensive business integration

At present, video conference is divided into two types: cloud video conference and private network video conference.

Cloud Video is a video streaming service based on the concept of cloud computing technology, covering all processes from acquisition to playback, enabling customers to build professional video systems in a cost-effective and efficient way.

In the cloud video service process, the video collected by the content provider is first encoded into a specific format, after which the video is uploaded to the cloud server, transcoded in the cloud to adapt to different playback servers, and finally, the video is accelerated via a content distribution network (CDN). Distribute and play in the terminal by decoding.

Cloud Video Services process consists of three steps, data source: Cathay Pacific Junan Securities Research

Corresponding to cloud video is VCS (Video conferphone system), which is a conference TV system. The equipment required is more complicated, and the competition of the manufacturers is more intense. It is usually necessary to set up a private network and professional equipment, that is, a self-built video conference system is required. It requires special maintenance. The customers in this field are mainly governments with high security requirements and some large enterprises.

The traditional VCS video service has more extensive connection with hardware because of its high requirement for hardware equipment, which accounts for a large proportion of sales of hardware equipment. The cloud video service has a lower demand for hardware devices and a relatively cheap price (at present, the price of cloud video products is only 1 / 10 of the price of VCS products), the proportion of hardware equipment is lower, while the proportion of software services is relatively high.

In addition, the private network VCS high security, strong stability, general need to access the special network, more advanced, high-bandwidth conference requirements.

In China, the real realization of video conference business began in 1994 after the opening of the international public video backbone network. In recent years, great progress has been made in the research of video conferencing in China, and a large number of mature commercial video conferencing software emerged.

Small and medium-sized enterprises have a huge number of users, generally on the equipment terminal requirements are lower. This requires manufacturers to provide relatively low-cost products, complete solutions, and high-quality after-sales services. Price will be a key factor in winning the competition.

Third, a variety of scenarios to open multi-tier demand, video conferencing to enjoy the trillions of market

Since 2014, the market growth rate of video industry in China has remained above 30%. It is expected that the market size of video industry will reach 330 billion yuan by 2020.

From video conference combined with co-operation to promote business upgrade, to high-definition video technology application led to the rapid improvement of conference quality, video conferencing market expanded in an all-round way.

With the advent of the era of triple play fusion, the application of 3D technology will inspire users to use enthusiasm thoroughly, and may replace physical conference, which will bring huge development space for video conference industry.

The deepening of the triple play process and the deployment of 5G networks will further increase the market size of cloud video conferencing. The transmission speed of up to 10Gb/s and the ultra-low latency of 1 millisecond will make cloud video conferencing the mainstream office mode in the future. .
