According to a recent Cisco study, 82% of all consumer Internet traffic in 2020 will be video, up 73% from 2016! By 2021, there will be 5 million years of video content sent over the Internet each month. Anjali Sud, CEO of Vimeo, will talk about how video is evolving in format and function to capture a greater share of corporate, academic and consumer communications. Come to hear about her meteoric rise to the top of one of the most exciting companies shaping an important segment of our new economy.
Vimeo is a video sharing platform launched in 2004 by filmmakers. Today, it is used to share and promote the work of over 90 million creators in over 150 countries, mostly professional and aspiring artists in film, animation and music. Vimeo supports the artistry of its community of creators which differs from the much larger YouTube which is an audience-focused, ad-based platform that encompasses everything that anyone films. Vimeo’s core business is to sell tools and services as upgrades to its basic and free plans.
In April 2019, Vimeo acquired Magisto, an online service that speeds up video editing with AI and has over 100 million users. Eighteen months earlier, it acquired Livestream, a live video streaming platform. Vimeo Enterprise was recently launched to enable organizations of all sizes to manage and share live and on-demand video content to engage employees and build customer loyalty.
Headquartered in New York City, with offices around the world, Vimeo is an operating business of Barry Diller’s IAC (NASDAQ: IAC), a leading media and Internet company with more than 150 brands and products.
