The following term may appear new to you: HTML5. *Gasp* A new term from the web? Is it slang? What exactly does HTML5 “mean” and what can it do for me and my business? Actually, HTML5 will become increasingly important to you and your business as droves and droves of your customers seek to harness the power of HTML5. Let LEC Media explain.
HTML5 is a language for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web, a core technology of the Internet. It is the fifth revision of the HTML standard (originally created in 1990 and most recently standardized as HTML4 in 1997) and as of June 2011, was still under development. Its core aims have been to improve the language with support for the latest multimedia while keeping it easily readable by humans and consistently understood by computers and devices.
What does all of that mean? Simply, HTML5 is used by smartphones to broadcast audio and video. In particular, HTML5 adds many new syntactical features. These include the <video>, <audio>, and <canvas> elements, as well as the integration of SVG content. These features are designed to make it easy to include and handle multimedia and graphical content on the web without having to resort to proprietary plug-ins and APIs.
As the importance of video in consumer and B2B marketing continues to rise, the importance of developing and implementing more complex web technologies will come along with it. You don’t have to do anything concerning HTML5 and integrating it into your business. LEC Media will take care of all of the elements of HTML5 for you.
