Roll Up, Roll Up Media, Ents and Tech Enthusiasts!

🎵“Heaven, I’m in heaven”🎵

It’s tech heaven in Nevada this week with two of the key global media, entertainment and technology conferences taking place back-to-back. Las Vegas doesn’t do things by half so it’s the ideal place to host these phenomenal events. 

We could feel the excitement among the crowds as soon as our plane landed and we couldn’t wait to get to our stand at Avid Connect to start chatting with other tech enthusiasts.

Avid Connect 2019

Avid Connect (6–7 April) at the Aria Resort was a huge success. The two days featured many fascinating demonstrations and talks. Experts from Avid were joined by speakers from Microsoft Azure to discuss the media industry moving to the cloud and AI disruption in media workflows. Another excellent discussion centred on monetization opportunities with live video streaming and OTT.

We at Overcast HQ were delighted to showcase our latest integration with the premier editing solution in the world at Connect 2019. Overcast’s Collaboration, Review and Approval application recently went live on the Avid platform and already there are global media companies taking on our unique workflow solution.

NAB 2019

From there it was on to NAB 2019 (April 8–11) in the Las Vegas Convention Center, where we are co-sited with AWS – yes that’s right, Amazon selected us as their tech partner to join them here. They are expecting 100,000 film, video and TV experts and engineers from around the world during the conference. We’re having a blast!

Day 1 featured an Avid session with John Ottman, Oscar-winning editor of Bohemian Rhapsody talking about assembling scenes and his editorial process. Other hot topics that will be explored during NAB 2019 include AI and machine learning; trending technologies; cybersecurity; how cloud is pushing the limits for content; and the content creation and management workflow.

Whether you’re a production house, studio, network or brand, there are many talks and panel discussions exploring the opportunities being generated by the explosive growth in the global OTT content marketplace.

Meet Us In Las Vegas

We’d love to show you how to save time and money by making your video workflow effortless (with the aid of our good friends at Amazon, of course), so why not come to Booth SU2202 for a chat!

Alternatively, you can tweet our CEO @PhilippeBrodeur or email him on philippe@overcasthq.com to arrange a meeting at a time that suits you.

And remember, you’re never too young to start editing!

The Impact of the Creator Economy

In our last post, we looked at the rise of the Creator Economy. Now, let’s take a look at its impact.

This revolutionary phenomenon means that people who create content — from filmmakers to musicians — get funded directly by their audience. This has the disruptive impact of removing the traditional middlemen like record labels, film/TV commissioners, and publishers.

This has created amazing opportunities for content creators.

The Rise of the Creator Economy

There was a time when the phrase “Lights, Camera, Action” was only heard within the exclusive walls of Hollywood studios. Not so these days!

The past two decades have seen the rise of the Creator Economy…the lowering of technological barriers facilitates anyone to generate an income through delivering content to an audience.

Social media enables access to audiences without the need to go through a broadcaster or publisher.

But creators need access to technological tools to streamline the process of making fab content.

The Demand for Remote-Enabling Video Technology

Practically everyone owns a smartphone these days; therefore, we all carry a mini computer in our pockets. But, more than that, phones can record video clips and you can edit that footage through apps; so, effectively, we are all walking around with full video production capabilities.

So, armed with this portable video technology, it must be a piece of cake to make professional-looking videos, right?

Wrong!

Remote Work: The Evolution of Enterprise Video

Enterprise video has long been one of the key tools for small to medium-sized companies to fulfil their business objectives. But when the pandemic dispatched us to our homes to work remotely, suddenly it wasn’t so easy to create, collaborate on, and broadcasting video. Work had changed. Leveraging video for business was about to change too.

How Enterprises Are Creating Video More Easily

There’s no denying the domination of video with more than two billion monthly active users on YouTube and one billion on TikTok.

In our last post, we looked at trends in the acceleration of video management technology, which is driven by factors such as remote working, the ever-increasing demand for streaming content, and the rise of video content creators.

However, the ‘players’ — streamers, creators, and enterprises — have had to face the reality that the old way of working with video simply isn’t viable any more.
