quarter, but declining -17.9% year over year. Total worldwide enterprise
video equipment market revenue in 4Q13 was approximately $592 million.
For the full year 2013, the enterprise videoconferencing market revenue
declined -13.1% year over year to reach $2.26 billion.
From a market segment perspective, multi-codec immersive telepresence
equipment revenue was down --2.8% quarter over quarter and -26% year
over year. Video infrastructure equipment - including MCUs and other
video-related infrastructure products - increased 12% quarter over
quarter, but declined -13.7% year over year. Room-based video systems
were relatively flat at -0.2% quarter over quarter and declined -17.8%

Regionally, Asia/Pacific (8.1%), Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA_
(2.3%) and North America (1.4%) all showed positive quarter-over-quarter
revenue growth in 4Q13, while Central and Latin America (CALA) (-13.6%)
revenue declined quarter over quarter. In addition, all the major
regions showed year-over-year declines for 4Q13: North America (-22.4%),
EMEA (-20.3%), CALA (-11.1%) and Asia/Pacific (-10.1%).
"Interest in video and collaboration technology and applications helped
the quarterly revenue numbers in three out of four major regions except
CALA. But the lingering macroeconomic situation - including softness in
emerging markets, the recession in Europe, and the sequestration in the
U.S. (i.e. budget cuts) - produced some autionary IT spending that
impacted year-over-year video equipment revenue growth across all the
regions in 4Q 2013," said Rich
Costello , Senior Analyst, Enterprise
Communications Infrastructure at IDC (News - Alert). "In addition, and most
significantly, we are continuing to see the impact of lower-cost
systems, software-centric products, and cloud-based service offerings on
the enterprise video equipment market."
