Syndicated Market Research Products & Services

Devoncroft works primarily in the media technology sector, where we are widely-recognized as thought leaders in market intelligence and strategic industry analysis.

We’ve worked in the media and broadcast sector for three decades, and we understand this industry inside-and-out. We’re fascinated by this industry and we embrace (and understand at a deep level) its international diversity, fragmentation, complexity, interoperability issues, and especially the commercial and business model challenges facing both buyers and suppliers of media technology product and services.

We started Devoncroft more than a decade ago because we believed the media technology sector needs (and deserves) better data, better analysis, and more actionable insight from real industry thought leaders and experts.

Beginning with the annual Big Broadcast Survey — now in its 15th year, and still the largest and most comprehensive demand-side study of the global media technology industry – we’ve been delivering unique insights ever since. Today we publish a variety of syndicated market research reports, tracking studies, technology adoption indices, and widely-referenced industry analysis documents.

Big Broadcast Survey

The Definitive Voice of the Media Technology Buyer

The Big Broadcast Survey (BBS) is the largest and most comprehensive market study of the broadcast industry.

We’ve been conducting the BBS (in 10 languages) each year for the past decade, with regular participation from 6,000 – 10,000 media technology executives, including senior decision makers at the biggest players in the industry. The unrivaled richness of the BBS data set provides Devoncroft with unique insight into the factors that move markets, as well as the brands that are most likely to be successful over time.

BBS Reports deliver actionable insight into the opinions and attitudes of key technology buyers including broadcasters, playout centers, cable/satellite/IPTV operators, radio stations, recording studios and more. This includes industry trends; purchase intent and buying behavior; major project plans; broadcast plant and operational infrastructure; broadcast technology budgets; products being evaluated for purchase; and detailed opinions of vendor brands.

Unique Benefits of Devoncroft BBS Reports:


BBS Market, Brand, and Product Reports help readers better understand the commercial intent of buyers; as well as the drivers and attributes that influence and shape customer perception of major broadcast industry vendor brands. This valuable information can be used in a variety of ways to improve strategic decision making, customer engagement, marketing strategy, and sales execution.



All BBS Reports present multiple views of data, segmented by geography and customer type (e.g. broadcasters, playout centers, recording studios, systems integrators, etc). This enables granular data analysis of trends; customer budgets; projects; purchase intent; and brand perception. Custom segmentation of the data is also available from Devoncroft Partners.


Both the BBS Brand and Product Reports provide valuable insight into the market’s perception of broadcast technology vendors. Using numerous metrics, brands are benchmarked and ranked for the overall industry and/or against specific competitors.
