At the same time, the sources of engaging video are also changing. Around 2 billion people globally now own a smartphone equipped with a digital video camera. This along with a wider proliferation of video recording devices (Go- Pro’s, dash-cams, drones etc.) means that anyone can be a cameraman and upload unique video content to the web.
