* Sales of home media servers to reach 50M units by 2010
Annual sales of home media servers will reach nearly 50 million units in the U.S. by the end of 2010, according to a new study from Parks Associates.
The study, "Media Servers: Analysis and Forecasts," says media servers will expand the market for hard drives, home networking equipment, and silicon memory; and will spur new services and applications, including the distribution of IP-based content.
Another growth factor will be the competition between cable operators, satellite companies and telcos.
