DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/krpfk6/global_smart) has announced the addition of the "Global Smart Set-up-Box (STB) and Dongle Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.

STBs are devices that enable users to view encrypted channels on their TVs. They transform the transmitted signal into videos, which is then displayed on TV screens. Smart STBs or dongles are used to connect TVs to the Internet to stream online content. They have some or all of the following features: ability to stream media from other connected devices to TVs and record content from TVs; pause, rewind, or fast-forward live TV; Wi-Fi functions; ability to support multi-screen interactions; and ability to provide embedded cable modem broadband coverage.

The introduction of integrated smart STBs is a major trend in the market. This type of STB is integrated with the TV or smart device, which enables the user to access the digital media content directly via the internet and avoid the need for an external device.

According to the report, development of technologically advanced devices is one of the major drivers of the market. The market is constantly innovating and updating the devices by reducing the form factor and increasing the capability of the devices.

The high cost of the devices is a major challenge in the market. The vendors price these devices at a higher cost because the amount spent on R&D of such products is high and in order to make a profit the vendors have to sell these devices at a higher price.
