Online Video Viewership Segmentation in the U.S.


eMarketer estimates that 66.7 percent of all U.S. Internet users -- approximately 147.5 million people -- watch video content online each month. By 2014, viewership will rise to 77 percent of Internet users, or 193.1 million people.

During the same period, online video advertising spending will increase from $1.4 billion to $5.2 billion.

Over the next five years, consumers will become more comfortable watching all forms of video content -- long and short, professional and amateur -- on their Internet-connected mobile phones, laptop PC, desktop PC, tablets and connected TV sets.

But by 2014 the current "monthly viewership" rating will likely be outdated. Daily or weekly viewing will be the relevant metric, with usage perhaps measured in minutes and hours spent viewing video content each day.

Already, 29 percent of Internet users under 25 say they watch all or most of their TV programs online. A closer look at viewership rates by age shows classic early-adopter patterns -- with 18- to 34-year-olds exhibiting the highest viewership.

eMarketer forecasts significant growth in video viewers across all age groups -- in part because of how easy it is to share content online. However, the amount of time baby boomers and seniors watch online video will be smaller compared with their younger counterparts.

Robocall Mitigation Solutions to Halt Criminal Threats

If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, it's likely a robocall. A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message. In 2020, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received 2.8 million consumer complaints about robocalls. Offering solutions to robocalling and associated fraudulent business practices, computerized mitigation platforms are an integral part of the solution. Platforms that are focused on actionable systems to disrupt unsolicited and potentially criminal phone calls help telecom service providers and industry regulators. Issues of whether one-size-fits-all developments are sufficient to be effective across the spectrum need to be addressed, and whether a single telecom network operator working unilaterally with a third-party platform could compromise desired or mandatory industry-wide standards.

Secure Digital Workspace Apps Enable the Future Enterprise

In early 2020, as the world responded to the COVID-19 pandemic disruption, many organizations were forced to rapidly transform their communications networks and IT infrastructure to support an unprecedented shift to remote work. Before the pandemic, approximately 38 percent of employees were remote full-time or had a flexible work arrangement where they split time between home and office locations. During the pandemic, the percentage of remote workers that CIOs had to support reached almost 72 percent. Future Enterprise Technology Market Development Enterprise leaders have been forced to adapt to a new state, shifting from traditional office-based operations to distributed workforce environments that must still provide the same level of connectivity, security, and efficiency across the organization. According to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC), addressing connectivity across geographies and transforming networks to become more virtual and agile
