We've seen exponential growth in the space since the event, with over 69 online video platform providers listed in VidCompare, and while many of the companies in the space do a great job at educating customers, there still is a lot confusion about what's actually needed for a business to launch video on the web. This opening session features an all-star panel that concentrated on defining online video platforms, and discussed the main functions and features customers should be looking for when evaluating online video platforms, the question of build vs. buy vs. free online video solutions, ways to monetize online video, how do online video platforms fit into the value chain of the video ecosystem and what sort of changes will we see in online video over the next few years.
