We quietly rolled out our new video site last Friday. The new site sports a new search function and channels to help find what your looking for faster. We’re doing a lot of back tagging, so more improvements to come in channels and even more content. The uploading has been coming in at a rapid pace, and one of our service providers experienced a 500% increase in bandwidth over the past month. The serving rates are now in the multiple Peta byte range – many thousand Tera bytes: amazing growth in video across the board. Video ranks in the highest click-through from eNews and the overwhelming recommendation is for suppliers to provide video press releases and other compelling content when possible for maximum exposure.
Content creation is the bottleneck, and we have also launched a program to help suppliers shoot, edit, post and distribute video at a number of trade shows this year – more info can be found here.
