Videoconferencing in entertainment and media

Videoconferencing technologies are central to the next big leap in communications for the entertainment/media sector. Specifically, wherever a phone is currently used, videoconferencing can enhance the experience. Videoconferencing facilitates field interviews with contributors/specialists and on the scene news broadcasts. The explosion in smartphone use not only ensures a broadcast source is available wherever news is breaking but also that it can be consumed at whatever location and time is convenient to the audience.  Also, videoconferencing enhances communications between networks and their affiliates bringing remote broadcasts to and from sporting, political and other events. As media companies look to monetize their growing library of video assets, videoconferencing tools facilitate the real-time, rapid decision-making that must prevail among content contributors and decision makers.
