Live video is quickly coming of age as a way to quickly disseminate information to large, engaged audiences. Enterprise users have been our fastest growing segment, and we recently partnered with Wainhouse Research to gather more insight into this growing movement.
Last week, we released the first report in our ongoing Business Video Now series, entitled “Executive Visions of Video in the Workplace.” After surveying 1000+ executives, we got a baseline view into perceived effectiveness of live video in the workplace. Download the full paper here.
In case you missed it, Brad Hunstable, Ustream CEO and founder, and Steve Vonder Haar, Wainhouse senior analyst, hosted an interactive webinar today to talk about the findings.
Golden Globes Announcement Pt.1
Thanks to live, interactive video, movie and television (not to mention social media) buffs alike experienced uber-talented stars Aziz Azari, Olivia Wilde and Zoe Saldana reveal this year’s big contenders for the 2014 Golden Globes Awards 2014. Center-stage to an audience engaged across a spectrum of social platforms, Hollywood appeased the entertainment gods with their swift delivery in live time, to the delight of Twitter blogger fingertips worldwide. In case your snooze button caused a lack of attendance to the live event, here is a two-part replay of Golden Globe’s nomination reveals.
Stay up to date on the latest developments happening in the Ukraine, thanks to these citizen broadcasters’ live video reports of Kiev‘s Euromaiden protests and police crackdowns.
Want your Ustream channel to match the awesomeness of your broadcast? With these simple steps, you too can have an awesome layout like Monterey Aquarium’s Open Sea Cam.
Over the past 12 months, we’ve seen incredible growth within the enterprise sector, and as you may have seen in a previous post, Determining the State of LIVE, we’ve partnered with Wainhouse Research to better understand this growing phenomenon.
Live video is here and it’s here to stay; there’s no looking back. Our constantly connected society craves transparency and instant-gratification, and nothing can achieve this better than the live experience. Our early existence was largely consumer-driven, and while we continue to help bring transparency into societies through the power of live video (check out recent activity in Ukraine), we’re also here to help businesses harness this very same notion.
As Ukraine is rocked by the largest protests in history since Orange Revolution, take a look through the eyes of a Ustream broadcaster as they record their nation’s history in live time. Here is a recap in video and pictures of the intense pro-EU demonstrations happening as we speak; as protesters march through Kiev in protest of President Viktor Yanukovich’s refusal to sign an EU trade deal.

As a swarm of police invaded the thousands of Ukranian protestors before his very eyes, citizen broadcaster Aronets realized he had to take action. With no TV station crew or news reporters in sight, the world sat unaware as a nation demanded change from their government, and faced fierce retaliation. Before your imagination takes this story into Rambo mode, or any McGyver tactics to save the day, Aronets utilized a device each of use in our everyday lives (sorry James Bond). By simply using his smart phone and the Ustream Broadcaster App, Aronets placed a bright spotlight on the political unrest currently escalating in the Ukraine. LIVE. Before you scoff at the notion of live news, remove from your mind the traditional image of a rain soaked TV reporter being whisked away by strong storm winds. Thanks to technology, and the power of social media, not only can breaking events spread quickly via word of mouth, we now have the privilege to witness history through the eyes of the common man. In real time. This unprecedented, instantaneous access to the world is a concept assisting citizens of various nations, by giving transparency to their plights for democracy.

We hear it more and more: a blaring warning signal to CIO’s, as their roles are quickly fizzling out. In my latest post on Medium
, I dive into the rise of the CMO in today’s consumerized and cloud-based world. CMO’s will increasingly own more budget (that has traditionally been allocated to technology services), as their marketing tools start to cross further over into the technology space.
