The web is about to undergo the biggest disruption since its inception. Just as cloud revolutionised technology, video is about to do the same to websites.
Online video accounts for one third of all internet activity around the world – and news dominates 33% of all video content.
Within the next five years, websites are predicted to transform into online television channels. The website as we know it, will become an online TV channel – broadcasting episodic content on a regular basis, anchored across the social media channels.
Video replacing static text and images is an eventuality, not a possibility. Online video programming is where the technology, money and opportunities are headed.
