One billion hours of YouTube are watched every dayProving that online video should be exploited by Events.
On the 27th February 2017 YouTube hit a milestone and declared that a billion hours of video is watched every day by users around the globe. This shows that online video has become the place for people to catch up on the news, watch music and also check out the latest trend.
These facts are important for Event Broadcasting, showing that if event content is made available online, there is a huge audience ready to watch. Quick turn around video production, where videos are available online within hours off the event, helps to target audiences still captivated by the event buzz.
One thing to note is that half of Youtube viewers are watching on mobile devices, so providing videos that stream perfectly on any device is also essential.
