Delivering the future of media for today’s consumers
By Mary Kay Evans, Chief Marketing Officer
Video is driving the future of media, and there are no signs of slowing down. There are currently 3.8 billion+ internet users worldwide, and in 2021, 82 percent of all internet traffic will be video. Content owners, broadcasters, advertisers and brands of tomorrow need to meet these new consumer demands to thrive in a volatile digital world.
Brands want consumers’ attention. They want their content to be viewed and shared, and for their brand to benefit from the exposure and engagement. They want to deliver their content quickly, reliably and securely, because that’s what their audience wants. They want the delivery process (implementation and ongoing service) to be simple, seamless and fully supported because they’ve got a business to run. Those that fail to embrace bold technologies that truly disrupt, innovate and inspire will be edged out.
