The 4 Golden Rules of Streaming
N/A In November 2009 a Florida-based web design company ran a series of tests on their website. Their bounce rate (the % of visitors to their site that hit their home page but go no further on a site) started at 45% - a barely acceptable rate. Over the course of a month, they added graphic after graphic to their site. The effect was catastrophic with a bounce rate as high as 75%. As the test drew to an end, 25 graphics (200kb) were removed from the site. The result? The bounce rate dropped instantly to 35% in one day.

Where is the real source of digital creativity
N/A The summit of Live music has always been dominated by large bands, filling arenas consisting of high production values, funded by record labels and advertisers looking to attain a huge audience.

BVE and the Year Ahead
Kieron Seth# In the IABM's market survey a year ago, the Director General, Peter White, forecast: Although the worst appears to be over and a degree of optimism is discernible, 2010 is still shaping up to be a fairly lacklustre year. As we exit the year, however, we do expect to see better signs of market improvement with a more promising 2011 and 2012. How prescient. Packed aisles at February's Broadcast Video Expo seemed to show all the signs of a real upturn in the industry.

Applying the milkshake theory
N/A In last months column I sounded off at a few of the crackpot ideas going around at the moment, like connected television. The point, if there was one, was that we seem to be overloaded at the moment with new technologies that exist solely for one of two reasons: that a bunch of engineers found they could do it, and/or a big manufacturer thought they could put a new logo on a product and bump the price up.
