-- State-of-the-art learning experiences are vital to remain competitive in the education sector, finds Frost & Sullivan
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Modern lecture capture solutions (LCS) with rich recording, composition, playback and search features are transforming the global teaching and learning landscape. Equipped with products ranging from sophisticated whole-room systems to desktop-based utilities, LCS vendors are poised to enter practically every educational institution. Lured by the favorable outlook, new local LCS vendors, as well as established computing equipment and enterprise video technology firms, are foraying into the market.

A recent analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Analysis of the Global Lecture Capture Solutions (LCS) Market, finds that the market earned revenues of $162.0 million in 2013 and estimates this to reach $592.2 million in 2019 at a compound annual growth rate of 24.1 percent. The study covers LCS hardware, software and software as a service segments.

"The global demand for LCS is on the rise, with colleges and schools alike recognizing that digital learning is a must-have feature for modern education," said Frost & Sullivan Digital Media Industry Manager Avni Rambhia. "Once the value of anytime/anywhere learning becomes clear, and massive open online classrooms (MOOC) and inverted classrooms gain favor among educators, LCS will become an indispensable tool for the education industry."

Despite the compelling value proposition of LCS, market penetration experienced a low due to the limited sales capacity of vendors and concerns surrounding scalability and value among customers. Adoption rates are now accelerating in the flagship North American market, as well as the global market, with vendors broadening their product portfolios and boosting sales and distribution capacities through acquisitions and expansions.

Similarly, challenges such as low awareness among educators, limited teacher training, complex purchasing processes, particularly in the K-12 segment, as well as budget restraints that were lengthening the sales cycles and curtailing investments in LCS, have been easing. Market dynamics have improved with the emergence of cloud-based solutions and desktop-based clients, in addition to the realization within the education sector that state-of-the-art learning experiences are vital to remain competitive.

"Training educators on the effective use of new LCS, as well as capitalizing on the savvy video skills and enthusiasm of the millennial generation to consume videos at anytime and anywhere, will be important for continued growth," stated Rambhia. "Entering global distributor and system integration partnerships will also help participants target the largely-untapped North American market and emerging opportunities in other regions."
