New Series Launches with Focus on Blockchain and Its Impact Across All Business Technology Buying Sectors; 5G, Cybersecurity, AI Installments to Follow

NEW YORK, NY (April 3, 2018) — Data-driven solutions provider NewBay today launched a new continuous mobile, social, video, live event, and magazine editorial content series called “Need to Know.” The series, to be posted first on NewBay’s recently-enhanced digital platform, will provide insights about emerging disruptive technologies, focusing on how they directly impact purchase decision makers. Need to Know will help audiences in all sectors served by NewBay — AV, audio, video, TV, broadcast, consumer technology, education — understand challenges they must be aware of to best leverage new opportunities and prepare for future evolution.

The inaugural Need to Know installment, launched today on all NewBay U.S. BtoB websites, focuses on the much-hyped and fairly convoluted Blockchain. This includes a an easily-shared explainer video, and links to related content created to help readers investigate how Blockchain will directly affect their specific industries.

“There are certain technologies that challenge and create opportunities for every audience we serve,” says Joe Territo, Chief Content Officer, NewBay. “Our entire content team is providing all of those professionals with high-value insights about these disruptors. We’ve leveraged the full power of our content creators to make April 2018 ‘Need to Know: Blockchain’ month, and we’ll continue to provide this kind of deep insight into emerging technologies throughout the year — on all of our websites, with video storytelling, at our live events, and in our magazines.”
