ARRIS Demonstrates Transformative Video Delivery Solutions at ABTA 2014
Solutions for profitable, next-generation networks on display at Transamerica Expo Center, Section Aisle D, Booth #D10

SUWANEE, Ga., Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ARRIS Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARRS) is showcasing an expanded range of video delivery solutions at ABTA Expo & Conference 2014 to address the growth in consumer demand for personalized entertainment. These solutions enable Latin American providers to take the lead in monetizing, optimizing, and growing their content delivery pipeline and anticipate tomorrow's video services.

Latin American consumers exhibit marked demand for personalized access to all forms of entertainment, specifically binge-viewing, time-shifting, and multiscreening. This trend is validated by ARRIS's 2014 Consumer Entertainment Index (CEI), which surveyed viewing habits in 19 markets, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico.

  • 95% watch broadcast TV each week, with 80% watching at least 1-5 hours
  • 87% binge watch content, with one in four 25-34 year olds doing so at least once a day
  • 59% download or record TV programs to skip the ads, but 28% used second screen devices to purchase products related to the program they were watching

Broadly, this paints a picture of a quickly changing media consumption landscape with tremendous implications for Latin American service providers. ARRIS's solutions at ABTA focus on addressing these trends in consumer behavior not only by enabling related services, but by leveraging opportunities to monetize these trends and keep providers ahead of the curve.

"The data shows that Latin America is part of a huge global trend of consumers embracing personalized and distributed entertainment," said German Iaryczower, senior vice president of sales, Caribbean and Latin America, ARRIS. "This poses a unique challenge to local providers to keep pace with demand, but it also highlights several new opportunities for monetization. We're sharing our expanded portfolio of video solutions at ABTA to give providers glimpse at the resources that we offer for driving growth and marketshare well into the future."
