Leadership and Editorial Team
Beginning in January 2014, we organized our team to manage and grow Video Technology Magazine. We are now expanding the team and our coverage under our new name Video Technology News.
Our editorial team attends many conferences and trade shows to ferret out the most important technology trends affecting a professional developer of video and presence applications. We are involved with Silicon Valley technology leaders and innovators, covering the news for our readers to build intelligence applicable to their business and products.
We will report on the many valuable technologies, interesting business opportunities, and hot trends. We will be providing announcements of new market research reports that should be of interest to many of our readers.
The business of “Presence” as the next frontier in Digital Media has been heated up by Facebook’s acquisition of Oculus. Video Technology News is working on extensive coverage of the technology and business of “Presence” as part of our promise to help our readers prepare for future opportunities.
We are seeking additional contributors and consultants to participate in our growth. If you are interested, please contact our executive editor: Harrison Rose.
