Emerge – Agent Sizzle Video

Emerge is reinventing freight procurement. Their Digital Freight Marketplace provides access to benchmarked rates and thousands of trusted partners to maximize cost savings. A key user persona for this marketplace is the Freight Agent. Viewstream was selected to produce a high-energy sizzle video showcasing the innovation of this technology and the unfair advantage it provides to the Agents that use the platform.

“We do a lot of explainer videos for tech companies here at Viewstream, but every once in a while we get our hands on a truly exciting innovation. Emerge is doing some really disruptive stuff in an industry full of stale solutions. Putting together this aggressive, energetic piece was a real treat. The in-house marketing team was a joy to collaborate with and bounce ideas off, and the end result was something we were all proud of.”

DOCUMENT DESIGN

Cortex® Xpanse™ – Asset Rebranding

PROJECT DELIVERABLES:

White Papers, Case Studies, PowerPoint Presentations, Datasheets, Landing Pages, Email Templates, Infographics, Video Titles, Video Lower 3rds, Banner Ad Design


With Palo Alto Network’s December 2020 acquisition of Expanse Inc. (a leader in attack surface management), the Expanse brand was primed and ready for a fresh make-over. With an in-house agency overseeing the transition to a new brand name (Cortex® Xpanse™), logo creation, and template development, the Viewstream team was tapped with a massive digital asset creation and rebranding initiative, including the development of over (30+) brand resources including White Papers, Case Studies, Datasheets and more to support and promote the all-new Cortex Xpanse product offering.

“The security industry is fast-paced and extremely demanding of marketers — not all agencies can keep up. The Viewstream team is always ready and produces exceptional quality work. They fit in perfectly with our work processes and are a natural part of our team.”

Alex Yakubov | Director, Demand Generation, Cortex

“The 90-day rebranding initiative was an all-hands-on-deck project that tested Viewstream’s talented resource capacity, and we were able to meet the challenge head-on. In the end, the Viewstream team was able to successfully deliver 100% of the Cortex Xpanse assets on time and on budget. It was truly a huge win for everyone involved.”

Lexus Collision Assistance

Lexus wanted an ultra-modern video to show off the collision assistance feature in its new app. Viewstream created a semi-futuristic 3D environment and made a complete 3D model of a Lexus vehicle to show viewers how the collision assistance feature works.

“The middle section of this video features an interactive sequence where the phone user is performing a number of tasks in the workflow. To make this human-phone interaction sequence look true to life, Viewstream filmed a hand model in our production studio to make sure we get each swipe, each tap, and each gesture. In post-production, we accurately sync the hand movements to the pre-recorded app workflow.”

Prosimo.io Launch Package

Prosimo has come up with a radical new way to empower a true multi-cloud infrastructure strategy that allows users to deliver apps that are fast, secure and cost-optimized. As part of the full launch package production, and in addition to being tapped to design and develop the Prosimo.io website , Viewstream was tasked with distilling their technical offering into infographics that could transmit their value proposition cleanly, quickly, and beautifully.

Deliverables: Infographic strategy and design, diagram design, presentation deck design, eBook design, website information architecture, design and development, video and motion graphic production, interactive infographic design and development, interactive assessment design and development, banner ad design.

“It’s always a thrill to work with early-stage technology companies, but the Prosimo launch was particularly engaging. Conceiving of visuals and interactive experiences that communicate complex concepts such as “Application Experience Infrastructure”, was certainly a challenge, but we are incredibly proud of the end result. This project touched almost everyone at Viewstream at one stage or another. It was a full team affair and is a great example of the wide production skillset we offer.”

Verimatrix App Shield

Viewstream partnered with Verimatrix to rename and re-brand their popular app security offering now known as App Shield. Changing the name from ProtectMyApp to App Shield provided the opportunity to create an explainer video for this SaaS product and assist to re-brand and modernize the brand identity and messaging. Verimatrix App Shield is doing something that no other company in the world is doing — offering professional-grade mobile app protection in a SaaS model. The App Shield video by Viewstream tells this story.

“Communicating about cybersecurity offerings and data obfuscation in a succinct and attention sustaining video required advanced storytelling abilities. The Viewstream creative approach blended 2D and 3D animation, motion-graphics and iconography to reflect concepts like protecting devices across the stack and making available the highest level cryptographic shielding to everyday app developers. Nuanced VoiceOver and a custom audio backing tracks set the mood and kept the pace lively.”

Scholastic Pre K

Scholastic has created a complete educational program that is suitable for both the traditional and the virtual classroom. With a bright and colorful brand, our team had the opportunity to create a fun yet educative video showcasing some of their most famous characters. What a treat! We really wanted to highlight some of the best features the program offers, as well as the variety of solutions available to get your little ones ready for their next scholastic adventure.

“As a father of young children, having the opportunity to work on a video for Scholastic Pre-K program was truly a gift! It was a great opportunity for our team to break away from the more typical work we do for high-tech or medical companies. Our team of designers and animators really embraced this opportunity, and ultimately, delivered a fantastic video we are all very proud of!”

Celsius Energy Drink

Celsius asked Viewstream to showcase the growth of their line of energy drinks in a way that matched the energy and zeal of their consumers. Our creative team developed a look and tone that speaks to both the lifestyle and fitness sides of their brand, using fast-paced editing and type animation to tell their story in a bold and exciting way.

“Working with new clients is always exciting, especially when it’s a fresh project like this. Nailing the right tone and visual look for the video was quite challenging, but after breaking through those initial challenges it was a joy to take it to the finish line. I’m really proud of what our team accomplished!”

Adobe Captivate Prime Launch

Adobe Captivate Prime is Adobe’s award-winning enterprise Learning Management System (LMS) to train employees, partners, and customers. Adobe Captivate Prime integrates seamlessly with popular martech platforms such as Adobe Experience Manager Sites and Marketo Engage. For its launch, the Viewstream creative team came up with a treatment that the client loved. We went through an extensive storyboarding process and our animation team brought the video to life.

“We were tasked with creating a bold and exciting launch video for the new release of Adobe Captivate Prime. We’ve won Telly Awards for each of the previous Captivate Prime launch videos, so we knew we had to knock this one out of the park. We assembled our A-team of creatives who came up with a treatment that both exceeded the clients vision and expectations.”

VIRTUAL EVENT

MEZ Creative Virtual Event

In an ever-changing world, more and more events have been transitioning to immersive virtual experiences. For this year’s annual National Sales Meeting, MEZ Creative’s client Intersect ENT decided to do the same – for the first time in their history. There are dynamic elements that had to work in unison including multiple agendas per day, concurrent streaming, world-wide attendees, and coordinating our IBM Watson Platform to work at scale – which we were able to execute securely and seamlessly.

“I love the idea of being able to bring people from across the globe together in our digital age with virtual events.”

Adobe Connect

When Adobe Connect came to Viewstream to tell the story of Las Vegas EMS Training center, we were very excited. But with COVID-19 shutting down education all over the country, the Las Vegas EMT training center was faced with a new challenge: How to educate first responders when classes cannot be held in a traditional way?

Viewstream interviewed all of the stakeholders to develop a story that would both relate the urgency of the need for classes, as well as demonstrating the power of adobe connect. Once we knew the full story, we sent the stakeholders the Viewstream Virtual Studio (VVS). The VVS allowed us to record the subject’s on-camera interviews remotely without the need to send a crew. For the subjects, the experience is similar to a zoom meeting, with very little setup required.

“It was an honor to create a documentary about the training of front-line workers in the midst of a global pandemic. And when a client has a great success story to tell about their product, it makes our job a lot easier! We are not working the front line, but at Viewstream we are trying to do our part by empowering brands to create content in the safest way possible.”

DIGITAL MARKETING

Deloitte Digital + Adobe

This marketing initiative was a cobranded campaign (Deloitte Digital + Adobe) around the Experience Management as a Service offering, using an account-based marketing approach. We employed TAL (Target Account List) based on awareness of both Deloitte Digital’s customers and potential prospects targeted to industry later. We set up tests, observed results, and made decisions based on data to optimize conversion rates. Using this methodology allowed maximum agility to adjust the campaign cadence as needed.

“The Nat Geo campaign by Deloitte Digital and Adobe took a lot of collaboration on the back end from setting up the event’s webpage and linking to the lead collection and follow-up. By working alongside the client’s media and development team we were able to create a seamless experience for guests who registered for the virtual event.”

Viewstream 2021 Reel

In the world of video storytelling, a “reel” is a visual statement of who you are and what you do. For us, it is an expression of the quality Viewstream is known for and what prospective clients can expect when working with us. It is not only a way to showcase our work to the world, but it is also for US; a team-wide celebration of recent accomplishments and a visual shout-out to and spotlight on our amazing artists we work with every day.

A proud scorecard of past work and how we’ve grown over the years, a powerful snapshot of where we are today, and a glimpse of how we plan to leap in the future. We hope you enjoy the piece! We sure enjoyed making it 😉

“Finding the right clips that highlight our best work, recrafting our story using only on-screen text elements from our client’s videos…always a creative challenge, but we’re always excited to take it on. The key was also to find the right music track! We really wanted to bring out the high end/modern feel of our works, and showcase the variety of industries we serve.”

Viewstream Video Engine

Viewstream Video Engine

The Viewstream Video Engine is a simple sales enablement app that delivers high-quality branded video assets, with the ability to mass replicate and personalize at scale. It empowers reps with a simple platform to generate personalized videos and tools to distribute across social and direct channels to extend visibility, reach, and recruitment.

“Your reps need tools that help them stand out in a human way and sell more efficiently. Our goal in developing the video engine was not to create a tool to print a bunch of personalized videos, it was to craft a killer sales enablement platform. We think we’ve done just that. But you be the judge! Live demos are available. Take a peek under the hood today.”

Boston Dynamics

Boston Dynamics robot

A spin-off from MIT, Boston Dynamics creates mobile robots, like the popular Spot. As the company grows with GTM activities, the need for website updates, content marketing, and media promotion, is critical. Viewstream simplified and upgraded the creative and editorial for the product pages, as well as created a GTM e-Book and media promotion campaign.

COX Business

The COX IPC Explainer video was a great example of a high tech concept being communicated quickly and compellingly. The goal of the video was to arm the client’s sales force with a tool that could explain, in under 3 minutes, the benefits of the IPC offering and effectively prime the sales conversation. This video is now being duplicated and personalized with each reps contact information to further empower them to sell better.

“Telling the story of high-tech solutions is always a challenge, but this explainer is a great example of when good writing, design, and post-production come together to achieve that goal. It was a pleasure to work on and I’m always happy when our work makes it easier for our clients to bring in business.”

The future of work was already leading us toward a more remote working culture, a trend that has only been accelerated by the current crisis. While this steady shift to remote working has its benefits, it has also made it harder to stay connected with coworkers, partners, and customers. This is especially true when it comes to virtual events, which are often viewed as lacking the ability to engage and inform in the way that physical events can.

Viewstream Virtual and Online Events provide the opportunity to harness the value of physical interaction within a safe, virtual space that does not require the need for hosts or participants to travel. These virtual events are not simple live streams, but rather custom-branded experiences tailored to your specific use case that have the ability to be engaging and informative in ways that traditional online events can’t match.

Viewstream’s virtual event experience begins with a content blueprint developed based on research into your organization and interviews with employees. Using this blueprint, Viewstream is able to determine the major themes of the event and craft a script that communicates them in the most engaging way possible. Creative elements are then storyboarded and brought to life to convey the desired themes and exemplify the unique style and branding of your organization. Finally, the event is delivered in a live format before being automatically archived and made available for management through a convenient CMS platform.

Viewstream events include a number of features designed to promote security, engagement, and insight. Events are secured through a single sign-on (SSO) system that can be easily integrated with virtually any corporate directory. Q&A/chat modules can be made available to participants and moderated to show only approved content. Live audience polling can also be implemented with the option to show real-time results. During and after the event, your organization will have access to statistics detailing viewership and viewer location, as well as individual viewer tracking functionality.

Viewstream has over 20 years of experience in the virtual events space and is proud to have hosted events for companies such as Microsoft, Adobe, and Autodesk, among others. While nothing can ever truly replace the authenticity of physical interaction, Viewstream’s virtual events provide the next best alternative.

The 2nd B in B2B2C can be called partner producers. They own direct customer relationships and are critical to the success of the first “B”.  Branded video content is an invaluable marketing resource for these partners, helping them to reach their audience, sell more efficiently, and drive growth. Despite the benefits, creating video content personalized to each of your partner producers is often time-consuming. On the other hand, leaving the task to the partner producers themselves can result in low-quality content that negates the desired effect.

The Viewstream Video Engine provides your partner producers with high-quality branded assets that can be mass replicated and personalized at scale. The Video Engine allows your partner producers to take the valuable video content you already have and personalize it with their own photos, contact info, and CTAs.

After logging in, partner producers will see all of the video assets that you have made available for personalization. They can then choose the content they want to personalize, add custom introductions and outro CTAs, and create their new branded video—all in just a few clicks. The video can then be downloaded for distribution or uploaded to social media directly from the Video Engine.

When it comes to branded content, your partner producers shouldn’t be left to their own devices. With access to the Viewstream Video Engine, they’ll have the tools to create high-quality personalized videos that will empower them to sell more.

Ready to help your partner producers drive growth by providing them with high-quality branded content? Contact Viewstream to learn more.
