Could you give me a clue where I can find the
statistics on the multimedia market for Europe?
Sometimes I get questions for which I have no
good answer. This is one such case. I have no idea
where you might get that kind of information. I'm

doing some searching to see if there's anything out
there for free.

a different link, Analysys (I don't know who
they are) had a number of reports including this
one "Competitive forces boost Internet markets

In-Stat group also had reports, though the only
one I could fine that was about Europe was a bit
too old. They did have some other interesting
titles-- some only costing $1,495 USD!--including
TV Set Top Boxes: Markets & Technology
IEEE 1394 as a Competitive Strategy
MPEG Video Chip Market Share
Videoconferencing and the Market for PC
Consumer Set Top Box Operating Systems
Home Networking: Markets, Technologies, and

not sure if any of these will help you, but there
is some information out there.
