Video is everywhere, it seems. From our social media feeds to website advertising to office reception areas; when it comes to telling a story or delivering a message it is becoming obvious that video is emerging as the preferred method.

It is easy to see why; improving networks and data capabilities for mobile users, cost reduction for media production, instinctive inclination to focus on moving images and a vastly simpler means by which to tell a story have all made video a viable business medium.

However, ensuring the correct platform is selected and ensuring the right strategy is adopted is critical. When it comes to enterprise video you’re not just looking for a solution to cover you for the next six months or even the next six years, but the next decade and more.

To do that you have to be sure you’ve started with the right platform, ensuring that platform can scale, your provider is on a sound footing and the technology will evolve as your needs change. Our seven step strategy will help you understand the considerations you need to make before you start your journey or look to make the next step.

Key findings

  • In 2018 264/AVC dominates video codec usage globally, used by 92% of developers in the survey. However, H.265/ HEVC has expanded rapidly, up from less than a third (28%) in 2017.
  • AV1 is poised to accelerate, with double the planned usage rate since 2017, to 29% globally.
  • Apple HLS and MPEG-DASH remain the dominant streaming formats in 2018 with over half of developers surveyed embracing MPEG-DASH and over 3/4 embracing HLS.
  • Software is the most popular and fastest growing choice for video encoders, but hardware encoders continue to hold steady, declining just 3 points in the last year.
  • HTML5 is by far the most widely used format for video and audio delivery, with 87% of providers using it today.
