2013 Online Video Executive Prediction: NewTek
Philip Nelson, Senior Vice President of Artist and Media Relations at NewTek, says portable devices are the wave of the future.

Professionals have become accustomed to communicating on the move. Between road warriors, multi-site organizations, and worldwide corporate infrastructures, businesses must invest in the creation and maintenance of employee communications.

With the introduction of smart phones, laptops, Wi-Fi and other mobile devices, telecommuting is on the rise. According to predictions by analyst firm IDC, within two years there will be 878 million mobile workers worldwide and 99 million in Europe linked to their corporate headquarters by personal digital assistants, notebook PCs and mobile phones. This population represents more than a quarter of the global workforce, and is a sharp increase from the 650 million mobile workers of 2004.

As communication through smarter, more portable means has become a requirement for businesses and individuals, portability in transmission has become just as critical.

Live streaming meetings, conferences and training lets employers and employees simulate "face-to-face" interaction, but a full-fledged production studio typically isn’t in the budget or the floor plan.

With a portable production system, employers can forego the financial and space requirements of a traditional studio production to deliver their live stream; whether it’s sharing the device between locations, or squeezing into the confines of a business suite. Just as your smart phone lets you communicate from everywhere, a portable production system can be moved quickly and easily, allowing you to live stream from anywhere in your building or off-site.

Portable devices are the wave of the future. They are not only transforming business communications, but they are extending opportunities -- enjoy the ride.
