Why the real-time Web is the new jet fuel for media Speed of discovery and speed to broadcast are essential in today’s ever-evolving world of media.

What if you could turn your laptop into a virtual drone -- obtaining immediate “eyes in the sky” capabilities for precise areas of interest. A capacity achieved within seconds and through a few keystrokes and clicks.

As smartphones become ubiquitous, the ability for communities to report on the world around them grows. By effectively capturing and organizing this data, we can accurately determine what’s happening through the eyes/screens of the people experiencing it firsthand.

Join Victor Hernandez and Jillian Bloome from Banjo for a fast-moving presentation highlighting emerging challenges and opportunities for tackling social signals, multimedia content, and complex data points to reach audiences faster via the real-time web.
