Tuesday Webinar: Best Practices for Video Search and Discovery

Screen Shot 2013-08-19 at 2.10.36 PMAnalysts agree that video is growing, both in terms of volume and the need to expose it to search. In fact, Cisco’s 2013 VNI study predicts that globally, consumer Internet video traffic will be 69 percent of all consumer Internet traffic in 2017, up from 57 percent in 2012. But video as a format inherently lacks comprehensive metadata that would make it searchable in the same way text-based content is, thus rendering it an “invisible” asset even if the content is appropriate and meaningful. Applying rich metadata to video content is manual, time-consuming and costly — until now. On Tuesday August 27th, at 2pm ET, I’ll be moderating another StreamingMedia.com webinar, this time on the topic of, “Best Practices for Video Search and Discovery.”

During this session, you will learn about several best practices that can be applied to unlock the value in your video, and make it more discoverable for your target audiences, including:

  • How automatically creating a rich metadata “fingerprint” for video enables it to be discovered via search
  • How that metadata can be further exposed and cultivated to create experiences that drive users to related content, and increase video stream starts and time on site
  • How metadata can be used to drive contextual advertising experiences that offer additional revenue generating opportunities for you and your advertisers.

We’ll have a full Q&A session in which your questions will be answered and as always, all StreamingMedia.com webinars are free. So register here and save the date for this instructional webinar.
