Customers spanning across industries, from healthcare, to education, to professional services and even finance, are adapting to live-video as a way to stay engaged with their clients and exceed customer expectations. In fact, worldwide, we know the number of telehealth patients will increase by 10x by 2018. And, we know that 87% of students prefer to collaborate online than in person. There’s no doubt that live video is now an integral part of client engagement and brand loyalty, and will only continue to become more prevalent in the future.
On Saturday March 11th, TokBox joined Ziggeo to co-host the third annual Video Hack Day at General Assembly in New York City. The one-day hackathon event saw creative web and mobile developers from the New York area and beyond come together and use the latest video technologies to rapidly build innovative and exciting applications.
By all accounts, the event was a resounding success, with over 100 ‘hackers’ submitting projects that ranged from highly practical civic solutions to online dance party platforms (which is not to say that dance isn’t practical). With a tight window of around 10 hours to complete a fully demo-able product, the participating teams were pushed to their limit, and the results were more than impressive.
