For the past 50 years the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has brought together video technology companies and consumers to introduce the newest products and next-generation entertainment innovations. With the ever-changing consumer electronics landscape, it can be a challenge for video content providers to reach viewers on every major operating system and product release.
One example: Virtual Reality (VR) is on everyone’s list of technologies to watch in 2017. The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) says 77 percent of consumers are willing to purchase VR equipment. In 2017, we expect to see VR 360 video gaining popularity, especially with new innovative immersive applications and content production workflows starting to mature.
Verizon Digital Media Services’ will also be attending CES, where we’ll meet with customers and technology providers. As a trusted partner for many of the leading broadcasters, OTT service providers and emerging video businesses, it is our job to ensure our platform is fully equipped to deliver quality, simplicity and scale to help them future-proof their business.
Therefore, it’s important to stay ahead of the technology trends and connect customers with their viewers, regardless of the device. For example, Verizon Digital Media Services is already able to support VR and help our customers (from sports to entertainment and TV) ride the VR video wave. Other trends like 4K and UHD? We’ve got those covered too.
We provide you with the simplicity of a single, end-to-end platform to prepare, deliver, display and enable the monetization of your online content for flawless performance regardless of device and platform, today or tomorrow.
