Overcast HQ is delighted to announce that we have been selected by AWS (Amazon Web Services) to exhibit in their booth at IBC 2019, which will take place from 13th to 17th September in Amsterdam. 

This is the second time this year the AWS team has selected us to exhibit alongside them. In April AWS chose Overcast HQ from technology companies worldwide as only one of 12 key tech enterprises to be on the AWS booth at NAB 2019 in Las Vegas.

It’s been a very exciting year so far in another way. We also attended Avid Connect 2019 in Las Vegas, where we initiated collaborations with some high profile Hollywood clients. Our Collaboration, Review and Approval application is now directly incorporated into Avid’s Media Central | Cloud UX platform.

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?

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.
