Web Video Production for Business – A Simple Guide

It is now the beginning of 2009 and we, the ardent users of interactive technology are riding the crest of a Golden Wave of web video and corporate website video possibilities. I have no doubt that in a conceptually altered Chinese calendar this would be the ‘Year of the WebVideo’ in all its’ various forms and methods of deployment. Anyhow, i’ve been reading up on the subject and this is the impression i’m getting from people in the know.

Technology has again moved forward and new encoding procedures coupled with a general awareness of narrative have brought the great and fantastic possibilities of video, online and into the hands of the common man.

His or her under £150,000 gross operation is obviously crying out for an effective means of one on one communication and somewhere along the line I read that potential customers are 4 times more likely to become actual customers if your web presence is graced with the luminance of video. People buy off people! CEO’s everywhere have, for some time now been scrambling to put into place the most efficient systems and operations that will fully exploit this ardently touted paradigm shift in online visual expectancy.

The figures are all there. Findings in the American market have indicated that the number of consumers who actively engaged in the viewing of online video rose by 18% in the second half of 2006. A total of 3.7 billion streams having been watched. Male to female ratios stand close to even on a 52-48 percentage scale. Surprisingly in 2006 it was Yahoo Video that led the pack with around 21 million visitors a month.

MySpace came in a close second with around 20 million a month. So with the stats in mind I guess it wasn’t that surprising to see Google swallow up YouTube which was getting around 16 million faces a month.

According to Jack Flanegan, executive vice president of ComScore Media Metrix who, amongst other things provide detailed analysis of online consumer activity is quoted as saying: “Consumers clearly view video as one of the most accessible, interesting and entertaining sources of content on the web”. And, well…I completely agree. Video has an accessible grounding in reality, and… all things considered… there’s a thirst for it. We are all obsessed with peeping through the crack in the doorway, watching without ‘being watched’.

Video was built for this kind of mentality. There’s no way I would be writing this blog about some useless, defective communication format sent to the archives of history to hang out with smoke signals. Oh no, not me! I am here and now and so is online video, and in this here and now if you want to make some money through your online presence, WebVideos are the progressive medium you should employ.

Ditch the expensive call centers and put your customer service rep on your site in an interactive video display for first hand guidance. Why have a static image of your product when a WebVideo can shift more units. Go ahead, make that play for a full grasp of socially relevant media deployment, move forward, gain the edge. This is the 21st Century in the history of the fine beast that is man. What? You don’t have video on your website?

How to do you maintain peoples interest? Things must be so tough for you. How are you coping? Anyhow that’s what people were saying about websites and that soon caught on. Now look where we are. If the internet is just another room to peer into then it stands to reason that it’s gotta have a TV in the corner.

So how do you go about employing video on your website? What is the right format? More importantly, what should it look like? Obviously with the advent of new encoding procedures it has become incredibly easy for web deployment of video. At the forefront of this new wave of encoding is the On2 VP6 codec which is used primarily by Macromedia Flash 8 and up. The ‘flash player’ is freely available for download and is reportedly on 96% of all internet configured Windows & Macintosh computers. Which is pretty high as far as stats go. Java (84%), Windows Media Player (87%) and Apple Quicktime (59%) all trail behind.

Flash enables anyone to stream videos from their browsers cache at a fraction of the size of other formats thanks to the On2 VP6 compression. Also it has a whole different level of options for interactivity that none of the others have. With flash you can play a hundred videos through the same file without leaving the page and tag a form on the end of the video asking for comments. This is sure to keep people immersed in an interactive video experience. WARNING – Ideas not supplied. Well… not for free that’s for sure. Flash was built for the active medium of the internet and it’s flourishing.

Micro-sites or the huge rise of .tv sites are the high end of video usage for a lot of companies, but high end means high prices, maybe six grand upwards is not in your budget. The average business will probably find use for a handful of videos for an initial outlay of a couple of grand. Obviously there will be niche markets out there where the businesses will have to have video on their site and cannot function without it. Soon enough though it will all be like that. As prophetic as that sounds, I can only image this sort of thing snowballing. Remember the Golden Wave. Ride it and flourish. For if you don’t, it will drown you.

Anyhow, there are companies out there that will put together a 1 minute video for you for around £500, but i’ve seen these videos and from a professional standpoint I know they are operating on a second rate level. The obvious lack of perfectionist ideals and aspirations belongs only to the guy who amazes himself too easily. Another form of online video is the 30 second slot on the homepage. This is fast becoming the successor to the animated header.

The web has for the most part been a silent affair, with users choosing to listen to their favorite band whilst surfing away. Video is changing that and users are becoming used to a little noise. Over time the expectancy values will change and sound on every website will no doubt become a normal affair. This is why a 30 second, dynamic montage based intro will succeed.

Next up is the talking head which can run anywhere from between 20 seconds to 3 minutes long. The talking head can offer a much subtler welcome message and when combined with the use of graphic elements and transparent backgrounds it can still retain an element of entertainment. It has a keen simplicity that doesn’t overload the user and can be acquired for around a grand a minute and upwards, depending on your demands for graphics or titles.

Product or service explanations are very popular uses of the talking head by many companies from insurance to mobile phones. A sort of very subtle advert or showcase to watch at the users discretion. I mean why have bunch of still photographs taken from every conceivable angle when for a little extra cash you can have a 30 second video of someone showcasing the product.

No doubt the usual link to ‘enlarge image’ will change to something like ‘view product video’. A handful of these could be produced for around £500 a pop and considering the ‘click through’ rate you’re bound to make your money back shifting extra units.

All this of course is small change in comparison to what the majority of people are responding to. That my less than inebriated readers is of course, entertainment! By far the single most popular use of video ever. Billions of people, like fragmented herds of hedonistic swine, completely alienated from police state politics are lining up with baited breath for the latest ‘close shave’ video or some pair of seventeen year old girls trying their hand at singing Whitney Houstens’ “I Will Always Love You’. This is bedroom theatre at its’ greatest. This is where the mainstay of WebVideo opportunity lies.

Well… where does this leave the average website I hear you bleat? Simple. Format popularity has very specific impacts on everyday habit and culture. Just look at how far the viewing screen itself has come in all its’ varying forms. The impact entertainment video has on the web is perfectly aligned with a certain expectancy. Users grow through saturation of an idea to expect an element of it in all aspects their everyday lives.

The majority of the world still have boring day jobs and they still yearn for excitement and entertainment. The more saturated we become with online video entertainment as it stands the more demanding we will become. Static websites will always be around because some things need to be static, but hey… if it can be brought to life it better be, cause otherwise i’m outta yer. Boring!!!

The web may well be conceptually as a whole a fascinating work of art, but individual sites are but a mere brush stroke on a gigantic canvas of information. There are a lot of people in the world, maybe 7 billion in all and a few billion of these have internet ready computers, a thirst for entertainment, short attention span and a pocket full of cash to spend on anything that can hold their interest long enough to get their bank card out. If you haven’t got video on your website in one form or another, well… what have you got?

Broadband Sound

Broadband (shh) sound: The bbs-tek backalarm uses a pleasant broadband sound instead of the irritating single frequency sound of outmoded reversing alarms

The source of bbs-tek sound is instantly locatable. bbs-tek sound is directional, is localised in the danger zone and dissipates rapidly. As a result, No more complaints of noise pollution. No more reversing alarm disconnects by irritated drivers, Instant location of the reversing vehicle, no more head-spinning and confusion Broadband sound is known colloquially as “white sound”.

broadband sound is known colloquially as “white sound” or “white noise”. The “white” description derives from white light which is composed of all the colours in the spectrum. White sound is, similarly, composed of all frequencies in the audio spectrum. White sound has the unique characteristic of its source being instantly locatable. White sound does not have to rely on high sound pressure (decibels) in order to be heard because, being multi-frequency, competing single frequencies cannot mask it.

As a result a white sound alarm is equally effective at lower decibels than outmoded single-frequency alarms causing far less noise pollution and being just as effective as a narrow band beeping alarm.

White Noise Machine ? Achieve Better Performance and Focus With Sound

Many people have heard of white noise but few have a really, good understanding of what it is and why it is used. White noise in simple terms is a combination of all frequencies of sound audible to the human ear blended together. (Just as white light is composed of all frequencies of light). White noise sounds like a hiss, similar to radio static or the sound of rushing air when traveling by airplane.

Although there are many uses for white noise, we often see corporations using a white noise machine or system to “quiet” a department. For instance, if a company had a department full of computer operators, all clicking away at the keyboard, the sound would become overwhelming and distractive. The same would be true for a customer service department with employees all talking to customers on the phone. By using a white noise generator, sound is greatly minimized.

Millions of people around the globe struggle with getting a good night’s rest. For some, the problem is environmental, such as rooms that are too light, uncomfortable bedding etc. while for others it is merely a problem of tuning out the day’s events. Regardless, a white noise generator produces a sound that is calming. While perfect for everyone, people who work nights and sleep during the day or those in large, noisy cities, really benefit from a white noise machine by being able to block outside traffic and other unwanted sounds.

Okay, so how do white noise generators work? Random sound frequencies are produced in order to blend with the unwanted environmental noises in order to essentially mask them. The special sound created is one to three decibels above a normal conversational voice, which actually makes it nearly impossible for a human being to realize when white noise is being used. Additionally, white noise machines generate random audible frequencies that are distributed equally over the entire range of human hearing, which is what allows them to be so effective.

You will also find white noise machines used in unique situations. For new parents, getting a full night’s sleep is rare. The calming sound of white noise can often help your baby to sleep better. There are many types of sound conditioner on the market today some of which can also produce natural sounds such as waterfalls, surf, or even simulate a mother’s beating heart. Some sound conditioners offer five, ten, or more options of natural sound combined with white noise in order to create a soothing and relaxing environment that is conducive for sleep. Also, white noise generators offer a portable and compact privacy solution. Most machines are volume adjustable, and best of all, they are an easy and affordable remedy to an otherwise noisy problem.

There are many different companies that sell white noise machines. Be sure you purchase your machine from a reputable company, one that can guide you to the appropriate size and type that is suitable for your needs.

Adam Boyce writes articles on white noise machine. For more information about white noise generator, sound conditioner visit sleep sound machine.

Ncaa Stadium Sounds: One Great Ncaa 09 Feature

EA sports in changing NCAA football with its new feature, custom stadium sounds. They’ve included the custom stadium sounds feature on the next generation consoles. This feature will give the game more user generated content. The game itself which is NCAA Football 09 is a very addictive and takes you to the world of college football. This feature allows you to take audio files you’ve ripped from your Xbox 360 or PS3 and have them played whenever different events occur during the game. You could only use the custom stadium sounds feature if you’re the home team and there are over there are over 20 scenarios where you could put these audio files. Though you are limited to 50 events which could be created at any point, there is an “All” option which you could use to keep the same audio throughout the whole league.

EA sports named it “Custom Stadium Sounds” and not “Custom Music” because it doesn’t limit the user to just music. The user could use famous lines, sound effects such as lightning or a stampede. It’s a great way to let the user be creative and make the user have fun. It also gives the user the feel of have his/her own stadium and hem/her choosing the sounds to play whenever events like touchdowns, tackles, or fumbles occur.

The custom stadiums sounds could only be heard at the user’s home stadium. This means if they go to a neutral site, their custom sounds don’t go with them. This is to keep the stadium balanced. The stadium’s sounds will come from each team’s bands or the fans. And when you are the visiting team, you will hear the opponent’s sounds instead.

EA sports wants to reinvent the whole game from pregame to post game to give you the whole experience of custom stadium sounds worth it. So they believe it doesn’t end in just playing sounds. They made this feature as a step in exploring the creativity of the user at a whole new angle. They want the users to get as much from the actual game and also as much from the user. Which means, together with all the visual features the game has to offer, the user could still be a part of it by adding the stadium sounds and not just by playing the game.

The coolest thing about it is that users could download all the anthems of their favorite teams marching band or they could use audio files to bad mouth their friend’s team in the game. The users could even put in there favorite songs so whenever they make a touchdown, their favorite song plays and it adds to the excitement. The whole experience of playing the game is brought to a whole new level.

All in all, NCAA Football 09 is a great game. But together with the Custom Stadium Sounds Feature, the game is awesome. It brings the user to a whole new gaming experience. So if you’re a college football fanatic or you just want to give it arty, you will be hooked to NCAA Football 09.

Auto Sound Systems – GreAT Deals, Quality Brands

So you want to juice up that pathetic factory sound system, but the price of some auto sound system equipment is making your wallet shiver in fear? Don’t worry, with a little bit of smart shopping you can put together a system that will blow your factory sound away, without spending your entire savings to do it.

Online Shopping

If you are willing and able to install the system yourself, and have listened to a bunch of systems and gotten an idea of the brands of auto sound system parts you want, you can find great deals shopping for your parts online. Even if you don’t want to do the installation yourself, the Internet is still a great place to shop for the best deals on name brand equipment.

Shopping Locally

Again, if you are willing to do the installation yourself, or are looking to upgrade your existing system, you can find good deals locally a lot of the time. Even though auto sound system shops often have higher prices than online stores, a good bit of the price of any auto sound system is the installation. You can often get away with paying retail if you do the install yourself, and get a great deal on a killer sound system in the process. The main advantage to shopping locally is that you can listen to the different systems before you buy, which is just not possible when shopping on the Internet.

Hit the Pawn Shops

If you both have a good idea of the brands of auto sound system equipment you want and are willing to purchase used equipment, you can shop around your local pawn shops. You can find some really bargain-basement prices in these shops, and usually any gear that a pawn shop buys is tested and working. All auto sound system components, from head units to speakers and amplifiers, are available at pawn shops all over.
The best total prices are still only obtainable by installing the system yourself; if you are not confident in your abilities, it can still be worth it have even used parts professionally installed since it can be much easier to put different parts in once the wiring and brackets are all in place, making it more of a plug and play operation.

Name Brands at Good Prices

While everyone would like to have top of the line JL Audio competition speakers or the like, the prices on the very best auto sound system components can be astronomical. You can easily spend over $500 on a single speaker at the very top end. But there are plenty of quality midrange products from companies like Kenwood, Alpine, and JVC. Stay away from the absolute bottom of the barrel parts, though, as they can often sound worse than your existing factory system You do not want to spend a bunch of money only to have it sound the same or worse than your existing system. The midrange products are usually the way to go for the best price vs. performance. And with some careful product selection and shopping, you can build a kicking system for under $400 if you do the installation yourself.

Get A Good Sound System With Out Breaking The Bank

Despite popular belief, it is quite possible to get a great quality auto sound system even if you are operating on a limited budget. I completely understand your skeptical glances and the comments and grumbles that being on a budget means different things to different people. I can tell you without a doubt that you can get a really nice sound system for your car, truck, or SUV even if your budget is less then $300.

There are several things you can do as a savvy consumer that will help drive the price of the wonderful sound you seek to a bare minimum if you use a few tips, tricks, and techniques, in order to do so. First of all, the competition in this market is fairly fierce. As a result of that you will find that prices tend to be pretty competitive from one shop to another and that your best bargains are usually going to be found online. Search around online and find the absolute best bargain you can find on the auto sound system of your dreams.

Once you’ve found the lowest online price, get on the phone with local retailers. Many local stores understand the need to compete on a much larger scale. As a result they are often willing to match prices and even through in perks such as installation or freebie upgrades in order to sweeten the deal. Once you’ve gotten a few upgrades from local markets, continue calling around and let them compete with one another for your business. Take into account the value of the freebies and upgrades to you. If you really have no use for the bobble head hula girl then skip that offer and go for the one that offers an upgrade on speakers or an extended warranty thrown in for free. Make sure that the upgrades are really worth something to you. Also consider the value of the upgrade verses the price and go with the best bargain.

Another truth when it comes to purchasing an auto sound system is that you do not have to buy the ‘best known’ or biggest name brand in order to get a great sound and excellent quality. Spend your money where it matters most to you. Sometimes you are paying for nothing more than the name attached to a product. I’m a huge fan of Bose. I love the sound and have yet to find a product that can offer the quality of sound at a lower price. That does not mean I would not jump at the chance to buy an untried brand if the sound in the display equaled the quality of sound I can get with a Bose sound system. In fact, I have held onto an SUV for 10 years because I’m not ready to give up my sound system and my truck still runs. A Bose system is not a budget investment, but you can find bargains that are similar and sound wonderful. In other words, don’t become a name brand snob if you don’t have to.

In reality, there are many discount dealers you can find both online and off that will be more than happy to hook you up with a great set of sound for your car, truck, or SUV at a really great price. It simply takes a little leg and phone work on occasion to find them.

Good Quality Sound System

I for one can’t imagine entering into my daily commute without the sound assistance of a good auto sound system. Music in the morning is as necessary for me as oxygen and caffeine. If I live without any of those above my day is already up and running with wrong foot first. Music is a very important part of any given day for someone like me. My wake up call in the morning comes in the form of my favorite radio station and from that point on I have music as my companion for the vast majority of my morning routine. That is of course with the exception of children and husband and some of their more insistent demands for food, money, and last minute homework crisis. I will gladly take my music and tea most mornings and skip the drama.

The point of all this is that I am not alone in my morning preference. If I were there wouldn’t be so many variations of the music driven alarm clock. Today you can even have CD player alarm clocks in order to get you up and running to your favorite tunes. Of course this brings me to an important point. A good auto sound system will sound much better than your morning music wake up call. Most alarm clocks will not have the best quality of sound. They are designed for minimal space, minimal intrusion, and to be annoying enough that you will get up (eventually) and turn them off. If the music is good and the quality even better, most of us, can manage to incorporate the music into our dreams and go right back to sleep.

While you do not want your auto sound system to necessarily put you to sleep you do want it to be enjoyable to listen to. You are after all most likely shelling out a good portion of a month’s salary in order to pay for it. Some may say this is extravagant but many people spend more time each week in their cars than they do in front of their televisions and are much more inclined to spend a great deal more on big screen or LCD televisions for their homes. I like being surrounded by nice things and music is one of those things. A great auto sound system is one way that I can bring music into my life day in and day out. I am quite certain that there are others out there just like me. Just like the alarm clock radios, there are many wonderful auto sound systems on the market today competing with one another for a slice of the music lover’s pie. That would not be the case if there were only a select few of us who enjoyed great music.

The trick is always going to be finding the sound you like at a price that is just as delightful as the sound they provide. A good auto sound system is not an impulse buy. This is something you consider carefully, shop around, and compare prices on before you make the decision to purchase. Also consider things such as free installation and how they will affect the overall price when the time comes. It could very well be that the same sound system will cost a different amount at several different stores, if one of those stores offers free installation (depending on the cost of installation) it may be a much better deal even if the cost of the system is slightly greater than those at the other competing stores.

There are many things to consider when purchasing an auto sound system for your vehicle. The most important of those things is how well you like the system you are purchasing. This is your money after all and you should spend on the systems that sounds best and offers the most features that you desire.
