  3. 5. Video has come a long way… … where is it going?
  4. 6. A few key questions? The world is going crazy about video on the web, but what about us? South Africa’s unique landscape offers some challenges… Some examples please? How do you make web video work for you, your clients and your bottom line? Who is your audience? What do they want?
  5. 7. Drivers behind development? Connectivity in-home in-corporate on MOBILE Software Operating systems Codecs File compression formats Flash .SWF, .FLV Mpeg (1-4) CDN’s (Content Delivery Networks)
  6. 8. So who watches video on the web anyway? 450 million youtube users worldwide! 2bln videos viewed per day 24 hours of video uploaded per minute! YouTube is the 4 th most visited site in SOUTH AFRICA! 65000 out of 1mln users on TimesLive watch videos Fortunately very little of this video is produced at TV budgets!
  7. 9. The SA Internet Landscape 5m Internet users (on computers) – they expect video 5m on mobile – they want video but it is expensive Access to broadband is increasing rapidly for home and business use, but yet to become evident for mobile users Mobile sites are becoming more accessible, but use a reputable service provider – this is a lot more complicated than a website Monetise mobile video through sponsorship and branding, not through charging for SMS download requests Length of videos? GIBSfn vs Ted.com And be careful of long videos where bandwidth is expensive
  8. 10. So who is YOUR audience? Is the WEB your primary or secondary platform? If primary, then integrate video; If secondary, then look more closely at mobile video and mobi sites (mobi works well with print) <ul><li>Have you thought about event-based video? </li></ul><ul><li>Invited audiences? </li></ul><ul><li>Live streaming? </li></ul>Do they want INFORMATION (videojug) Or ENTERTAINMENT (YouTube)?
