Online Video has shaken up the World of Social Media

Big brands are taking notice of this trend and are beginning to adopt Facebook video as a way to increase traffic to their video campaigns

Right Now Facebook dominates!

May 2015

It is clear that Facebook is doing everything it can to become the top contender for online video content. Its new view-counter, auto-play feature, and embedding options come together to form a social video platform with a major upside.

Why  Video is a must for Boosting your digital Media Presence!

Arabic content and digital media boom (Cabsat Review)

CabsatDigital media on the rise now in the Middle East!

Last month was really interesting and different. I (Fady) have participated, with our partner RealNetworks, in Cabsat 2014 in Dubai, the region’s largest and most important conference and exhibition about media and broadcasting. Here are the trends that I noticed there.

Digital Media Solutions

Two years ago, I also participated in IBC Amsterdam where I saw latest digital media solutions and services worldwide. This year I was really glad to see all those companies coming to the region presenting their latest technologies in Dubai. This assured me that Interact is on the right track being a technology provider for streaming and digital media solutions. Earlier this year many big names started opening their regional offices also in the region, like also our partner, Brightcove.

fadyWe are proud to have more than 15 years in digital media starting from the very early years of the real player! Across the years also we have built a unique network of world class partners, we have been working with RealNetworks, Brightcove, Teracue, Blackmagic design, Adobe (Flash), Sorenson, Amino, winnow and many others!  Most of them were at Cabsat and worth mentioning that I personally liked the booth of Blackmagic design where they presented all their products along with prices, right on the wall !

The demand for streaming technologies in the Middle East is on the rise which gives massive opportunities now, more than ever before, for Arabic content (especially video) to go mainstream. Last year Arabic content was only 3% of all the content online with ranking number eight, after also long time where it was only 1%. But on the other hand, for video, Saudi Arabia is the Youtube’s number one viewership nation! Again assuring that the need for digital media and digital media solutions, services and platforms in the region, is now massive.

Blackmagic

Social TV platforms

It is quit cool to watch a TV show and respond, vote or participate in it, on-air, via a tweet or Facebook post! The social TV era has started, with a number of social TV platform companies presenting their capabilities at Cabsat. Companies like Never.no and Youtootech presented interesting scenarios and case studies of enriching the traditional TV viewership with high engagement over social media. These type of platforms that provides TV producers the ability to mix the engagement over social media in real-time with a TV show brings massive value also towards advertising. Recently, this is becoming a hype where all broadcasters, TV networks, social networks and online media giants are having the next battle, the battle of the living room!

4K Cameras & Televisions

Are you happy with your new HDTV?! Technology never stops and soon High Definition would be good old days! In Cabsat I witnessed also the trend of the Ultra HD or 4K cameras and Televisions! So whats the difference between today’s HD and this 4K?! Mashable has a good answer to that question, its about the resolution where 4K has twice the HD resolution!

In Cabsat there was a cool competition in displaying 4K Cameras capabilities. Sony had a full studio setup there while Canon focused on colored fruits, shows and Khaled Abol Naga being their onsite brand ambassador. Also Blackmagic design entered the competition for 4K cameras heavily by introducing cost effective cameras!

Misuse of technology

The internet has been a blessing to humanity, although the advantages of using the internet are numerous we also can’t ignore the disadvantages.

fix_for_anonymous_sleaze_is_in_our_attitudes_not_laws

Mohamed Abd El Rahman Interact’s Software Engineer is highlighting  some main misuses of the Internet that are most relevant today:

  • Email spamming:

And it’s present in the form of spams, and when we mention spams it’s either one of these

  1. It’s unwanted
  2. This is the deciding factor

And one of the major negatives for spams are that it uses up a lot of bandwidth.

  • The well of negativity:

The internet is offering you mainly everything that you will ever need in your daily lifestyle, work, education or even your health.

But it also provides you information that will have a negative influence on you, such as violence related videos and documentaries about serial killers.

  • Pranksters:

Internet is also full of pranksters, it’s easy to play pranks over the internet and never get caught. And nowadays it has been easier to prank due to the development of technology that has made every illegal thing achievable.

  • Ignorance of what you have:

Here in Egypt we have ignorance in technology, everybody has a smartphone and a laptop or a PC. But they only use these devices to make phone calls or messaging friends. For example “a government organization” they have IMac’s and they use Windows on them, this is a great example of the misuse and the ignorance of technology.

  • Time wastage:

Time waits for none and we always seem to forget this, we always use the web to complete a certain task and then you end up doing nothing. And then you discover you have wasted like 3 or 4 hours of your day.

  • Hacking:

“My Facebook account has been hacked” we have all heard this sentence, but no your Facebook account was not hacked it’s all about that your password wasn’t strong enough or that you gave your password to one of your friends and you forgot to change it.

  • Identity theft:

Our information is accessible to the criminals through the malware softwares we all fall victims. Second whatever we put on the social media websites is accessible to lots of people. How can you guarantee that you don’t have any account on your friend list that is a fake one ?

Not only the identity that can be stolen but also the pictures are cropped and can be used in other places such as porn sites or brazen ads.

know howSo be Careful How you use technology…Ignorance in the age of information is a Choice.

 

To More Positive Attitude to More Empowered and Successful Life

How the Power of Positive Attitude Can Change and Improve your Life 

always be postive

Maintaining positive thinking and positive attitude will drive you to success and happiness. It’s easy to say it in words but believe me it’s easier to apply it! Everyone had good days and bad days. The goal should be to have more good days than bad days!

WHY POSITIVE THINKING:

  • Positive Thinking people are HAPPIER 
  • Positive Thinking people are HEALTHIER
  • Positive Thinking people are more SUCCESSFUL 

Keep your THOUGHTS POSITIVE because your thoughts becomes Your ATTITUDE…Your BEHAVIOR…Your HABIT…Your VALUES and Your DESTINY.

Nevine Adel InsideOut Today Online Community Manager  shares today some important tips for a positive work environment!

THE FORMULA OF HOW TO MAINTAIN A POSITIVE WORKING ENVIRONMENT:

WORK HARD

Your workplace is your second home away from home so you should be happy there we spend at work from 8 to 10 hours daily which is more than we spend at our homes So our work = our life So how to have a happier life? 

The answer is simple we have to build a positive working environment we don’t need our companies to do it for us we can simply create it:

A. BEFORE YOU GO TO WORK:

Sunday post

  1. Always wake up a little earlier to finish your daily morning routine without stress (un-stressful mornings = better days)
  2. Flush your negative thoughts and move on
  3. Always have optimistic quotes or sayings on the fridge so it’s your good morning start of the day (everyday a positive quote is like an energy booster)
  4. Get yourself in the right mindset (before you leave your home, talk to yourself. Say something like this to yourself, “I refuse to allow anyone to steal my peace. There’s nothing anybody can say to me today to make me upset.”)
  5. A friendly Good Morning smile since you jump out of your bed..smile to everybody…A smile is a ray of light that shines on your face – A smile is like an inhaler that delivers oxygen to all the body and the bodies around:) 

B. AND NOW YOU ARRIVED TO THE OFFICE:

take a smile

  1. Again give more smiles 🙂  
  2. Be enthusiastic Enthusiasm is infectious. If you’re going to spend eight hours a day at work, why not make it more than just tolerable. Make an effort to smile, laugh, and enjoy your job. If you work to create a more positive attitude in the workplace, others will follow.
  3. A small gesture can be done here ( try to do a random act of kindness) bring your colleagues candies, chocolates etc…(small gestures have big impact)
  4. Create opportunities to have fun like celebrating a colleague birthday or his upcoming wedding

working happy

C. AND NOW YOU WILL START WORKING….THE HARDEST PART OF THE DAY:)

So Let’s Make Today A GOOD DAY and let’s WORK SMART for a better POSITIVE PRODUCTIVE DAY………..Want to have a positive work atmosphere INVENT IT:

  • Manage workloads and priorities…Treat Work as your own Business
  • Identify problems and set goals We can’t change the way we think if we can’t identify the problem.
  • Ensure open communications it works like magic
  • Say “I can” more than “I can’t”…Remember it always can be done
  • Refocus your attention when you feel that you lost your energy relax your mind and push away stress by listening to a nice song or simply take a round in the office and make jokes with some of your colleagues….simply recharge
  • Look for the bright side in every situation…everything can be framed positively
  • Spin your Mind and shake your thoughts:
Negative self-talk Positive spin
I’ve never done it before. It’s an opportunity to learn something.
It’s too complicated. I’ll tackle it from a different angle.
I don’t have the resources. Necessity is the mother of invention.
There’s not enough time. Let’s re-evaluate some priorities.
There’s no way it will work. I can learn to make it work.
It’s too radical a change. Let’s take a chance.
No one communicates with me. I will start the conversation.

 

D. WHAT TO TOTALLY AVOID AT WORK:

  • Personal Problems Leave the “private you” at home and only allow the “professional you” to come to work 
  • Taking things Personally…STOP being dramatic…alternatively Speak up and Let the person know how you are feeling
  • Arguing for the sake of being right…arguing is always pointless

AND NOW SNEAK A PEEK OF INSIDEOUT TODAY WORKING ENVIRONMENT:

 At InsideOut Today we are always keen on creating and maintaining a high performance culture that encourages innovation and creativity.

The new uprising Silicon Valley!

Slideshare2Once again, politics and technology happening come across on our Interact Egypt timeline. The date is Jan 28th 2014, which is a very important  and stressful date  in Egypt for two reason: The trail of former president Mohamed Morsi facing jailbreak charges and the second reason was the 3rd anniversary of revolution, namely that date on 2011 was called the “Friday of rage”.

Lets talk technology!

But, the same date was stressful on another more interesting track than politics, technology! It was the announcement date for Google Cloud Developer Challenge 2013, an annual software applications contest based on Google app engine. The contest, that started on September 4th had many applications submitted from different parts around the world including India, Latin America, Middle East and North Africa, South East Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa and finally. United States, Europe and the Rest of the World. The contest had 5 milestone dates starting from competition start till winners announcement and was really a very useful experience for everyone who joined regardless where he/she reached. Behind the scenes, everybody also witnessed and was amazed by the energy of the enthusiastic young lady orchestrating the whole contest, Elizabeth Clark.

The tech startup scene?!

Middle East participation was, as usual, quit interesting to me. In the last 4 or 5 years, the tech startup ecosystem started to flourish and get unleashed in the Middle East in general, and Egypt in specific. For this reason also in the recent years Egypt saw lots of events, contests, hackathons for tech startups, from international entities including Google’s own “start with Google” (where our country manager Fady Ramzy presented an interesting session about E-Marketing Strategies for entrepreneurs) and the more interesting events like Startupweekend, that was courageous enough to move away from Cairo to other places all over Egypt including upper Egypt cities witnessing such events for their first time like Assuit and Aswan! This also ignited local scene here in Cairo to start running our own “local” entrepreneurship events like RiseUp summit last November.

Our geek is here!

Back to our  #gcdc story, which is even more interesting, since Interact Egypt’s own geek Mohamed Abdel elRahman was one of the finalists with his cool midoapplication Courseit, which enables you to learn anything you want, you can find numerous of useful written courses and streaming videos that can optimize your knowledge and skills in many different life categories.  Mohamed is a real example of Egypt’s new generation technology geeks, his personal hobbies is to play around with new Content Management Systems and programming languages, reading techies blogs, trying out new frameworks. On that day he was really nervous and curious to see his app as the winner for the Middle East region, and we all supported him and had the same passion 🙂 But then, the announcement was on that night, due to difference in timezones, which added more stress here!

Gplusstress

Finally the announcement came out late night from the Middle East were Geo Sketch from Saudi Arabia and Travellog from UAE, but our Mohamed was even filled with further energy to proceed on the geeks track and jump into future contests again!

Interact would like to congratulate all the #GDCD winners worldwide and especially the uprising Middle East!

 Ahmed El Alfi Flat6 Labs Founder and Sawari Ventures Chairman he is funding the new GrEEK Campus where the event took place he said: he is planning to change the Campus in the coming years, by turning the facility into Egypt’s very own Silicon Valley. “In 2 – 3 years, this will be the Arab World’s and Africa’s entrepreneurship headquarter; and since RiseUp Summit is aiming at the same goals as we are, we are proud to host it here,” El Alfi also explained that the location of the venue is very convenient, since half of Egypt’s population (40 million people) are able to reach it in about an hour and a half.

Engineer Atef Helmy, Minister of Communications and Information Technology participated in an opening discussion panel where he talked about the National Strategy for Communications and Information culture of entrepreneurship in Egypt, and the four programs  applied in universities for the development of this concept for the rehabilitation of its graduates for working life and creativity in their field.  

The MIT Enterprise Forum was a great input at the summit, through the one-hour panel discussions about challenges facing entrepreneurs in Egypt. Hala Fadel, the Chair of MIT Enterprise Forum in the Pan-Arab Region, believes that Egypt has courage, energy and great ideas – a combination that the RiseUp Summit has embodied and used efficiently to connect entrepreneurs on a wide scale.

Pointing the importance of education, the American University in Cairo’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program was also a key organizer of the summit. “Egypt’s future lies in its education and private sector,” Dr. Sherif Kamel, the dean of AUC’s School of Business stated at the press conference of the preopening of Rise Up Summit

More than 2,000 entrepreneurs attended the summit and showcased their projects, aiming to catch the attention of investors and professionals to attain the funding needed to bring their ideas to life. They had the opportunity to network, discuss and listen to Keynote speakers sharing their success stories also participants had the opportunity to join professional workshops. 

The event featured a mixture of keynotes: 

  • Cairo Angels Pitch 8 to 10 startup teams at Rise Up Summit were given the chance to pitch behind closed-doors to gain invaluable feedback, and possibly investment.
  • MIT Enterprise Forum Pan Arab Region Panel Discussions Panel moderated by an individual with relevant experience with diverse experts to answer audience about the many challenges that face entrepreneurs and organizations working in entrepreneurship in Egypt
  • Wamda’s “Pitch N’ Mentor” Entrepreneurs joined breakout groups with experts to learn how to perfect their 1-minute elevator pitch for both investors and the media.
  • Pitch and Ride PitchNRide is one of the highlights of RiseUp. This unique event puts an entrepreneur in the back seat of a cab with an investor. The entrepreneur does not know who the investor is until they get in the cab. They have exactly the time it takes for the cab to circle Tahrir Square to make their pitch. No presentations, just their skills to convey the idea and engage the investor.
  • Rise a Thon Where the real action happens during the Rise Up Summit! In this unique hands-on workshop, teams to build new products in less than 2 days to solve a number of challenges
  • Trade Fair by Injaz Egypt Injaz- Egypt in collaboration with RiseUp Egypt provided 50 booths for already established start-ups to showcase their products and services
