When you consider that video powers everything from a video-enabled baby monitor to WFH meetings on Zoom, social media content and so much more, it is not surprising to learn that the typical American adult watches over eight hours of media daily.
Other forms of video technology and consumption aside, we spend anywhere from 4-8 hours using our smartphones to upload, deliver, and consume content on social media platforms alone – a fact that has only been cemented with the recent launch and explosion of features like reels and shorts. Due to the pandemic, the growth of video technology has been tremendous. We have all been witness to how Zoom has evolved into a staple for office meetings during those work-from-home days. Similarly, video conferencing has been a lifesaver when it came to conducting online classes during the pandemic. Today, we see a lot of online courses and educational video content, none of which wouldn’t have been possible without video tech. Overall, video technology has been a very important part of our lives and is continually playing a significant role in shaping the future.
It is no surprise then, that video editing is no longer a cool hobby or a complicated profession, but a necessary skill, almost as essential as speaking a native language.
According to some reports, reels are one of the key elements for the growth of these platforms. Given the growing demand for engaging video content, video technology is also rapidly progressing to provide us with all the features we need – be it vivid filters, smooth transitions, or attractive stickers on social media or XXXX as face recognition.
If you wanted to edit a video in the early 1990s, it would have cost a fortune. Fast forward to 2022, unique video editing tools are available that let you edit your video clips in minutes for free. And all you need is your smartphone or PC.
Although the fundamentals of video editing remain the same – we still trim, cut, and assemble frames to produce a final product we can be proud of. But, this art has advanced thanks to the application of new technologies and new methods for editing videos in general. Not only has video editing changed in the last ten years, but so have the purposes we have for our videos.
Ten years ago, people shot videos for their family archives. Today, video technology, along with AI and machine learning, have made it possible to make the world a safer place with features like face recognition in every other public space. Be it our smartphones, laptops, or other devices, we know they are secure due to face recognition technology. So, it would be fair to say that the world of video technology has come a long way.
But wait! There’s more in store for the future. The wave of video technology is not slowing down anytime soon. Video is the primary driver of digital innovation across all sectors and has several use cases. Video technology is employed in every industry, including healthcare, business, online streaming, fitness, and even retail. With the rise of artificial intelligence, more and more apps are being developed which is also creating endless career opportunities. Not only is it fueling employment, but it is also creating a new world of limitless possibilities. Video tech is even shaping the virtual experience in Metaverse whose potential we’re still yet to know. In the years to come, there will be an infinite number of video applications driven by real-time interactivity and immersive technologies.
