Consumption of visual materials is growing through the internet medium, with websites like Youtube and Hulu used for the mass syndication of video content. More advanced sites such as Vimeo are now providing high definition video online, proving that the constant development of video and recording technology is showing no signs of slowing down.
The possibilities that the internet has to offer broadcasters are endless. Many channels are now opting to stream their programmes over the web as well as through TV, meaning that more people are tuning into websites to view their favourite shows rather than watching the programme itself. The catch-up TV video platform is also becoming very popular, as most consumers prefer to have their programmes available, as and when they want to view them.
Social media is directly affecting television content too, with more and more programmes adopting interactive elements for audience participation, through social networks such as facebook and twitter. New programmes are beginning to be formed around the social network, rather than the opposite, showing the dominance of social media over television as a whole.
Reality Digital provides white label social network software for brands, giving them a platform on which they can build their presence on the internet. Brands can customise their platform however they choose, giving the community for each brand a unique blueprint. The software, which can be implemented in as little as two weeks, is instilled with all of the vital components of a social network, such as user generated content, media sharing and extensive video capabilities.
