The article offers information on the future of switched digital videos in the U.S. Switched digital video (SDV) stands out as one with great potential and the speed with which the technology has been embraced by cable operators attests to this perception being widely embraced. SDV has moved very quickly from proof-of-concept trials to commercial deployment. SDV’s bandwidth-saving capabilities are well established and progress toward next-generation advances is underway.
