So with the year closing out what are the expected trends for 2017 in the video corporate production sector?

The further ingestion of aerial photography, video, and thermal inspections will continue to be strong as the innovation coming out of China continues to deploy regularly and frequently. Not a month goes by without the Drone Industry making a new technology announcement. The technology is getting cheaper and is attainable by more commercial operators as more Permission for Aerial Work  (PFCO) is distributed by the CAA for appropriately qualified pilots. It’s hard to see this sector calm down any time soon.

360-degree shots and vertical filming, innovations of all sorts are rapidly changing the way all types of video are produced. These trends are not only revolutionizing independent film production but educational, corporate and marketing video production as well. Cisco predicts that 80 percent of all traffic will be comprised of video by 2019. In line with this trend, all sorts of organizations–from educational institutions to B2B companies–are using more video.

Widespread access to the Internet, cheaper data plans, and faster broadband are quickly making online videos accessible from anywhere and at any time.

Video consumption has skyrocketed on video sharing sites and social media platforms such as YouTube and Facebook (video consumption increased 94 percent from 2013 to 2014).

It has become easier to create a high-quality video with affordable cameras and sophisticated smartphones. With the tools available today, you don’t have to be the next Steven Spielberg to create an engaging video that gets shared with millions across the globe. (The fact that audiences don’t care as much about video quality as the actual content also plays an important part in this trend.)
