In this presentation, we discuss the value of Vertical video and the impressive data coming from Social Media about mobile video viewers. Smart phone users are using their phones vertically or in portrait mode 94% of the time. We also know that over 50% of all video is being consumed on mobile devices. If these statistics aren't compelling enough to learn more check out our free guide.
We review how to setup a multi-camera vertical video system where you can create high quality videos in 9:16. We use a free software called OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) and change the settings to 1080x1920. This allows us to mount our PTZOptics cameras sideways and rotate the video for 9:16 recording. These videos are now optimized for mobile video viewing.
16:9 is widescreen 9:16 is Vertical and 1:1 is square. So we have a lot of options today and the major social media networks like Facebook and YouTube are optimizing their video delivery based on the content being uploaded. We suggest using both 16:9 and 9:16 to reach a maximum audience. Currently you can only stream in 16:9 with RTMP professional video streaming software (as far as we know).
