Videoguys Unveils Top 10 Products of 2016

As we look back at 2016, we reflect on what an interesting year it was and what a big part involved media consumption – and more specifically – LIVE media consumption. Increased bandwidth, improved cameras on mobile phones, and easy access to YouTube Live and the newly launched Facebook Live (not to mention Snapchat and Instagram stories, too) made it easier than ever to get your message out in real time. NFL football games were streamed on Twitter, Presidential campaigns involved every multimedia platform available and international events unfolded at record speeds. We know that as the world consumes media the need for content increases and that’s where our video and live production products come in. Here are our picks for the Top 10 Products of 2016.

Watch Gary Bettan of Videoguys.com unveil these Top 10 picks.
