Product Launch Video

Here is a brief look at producing effective videos for

Product Launches + Concepts + Initiatives.

Video can play a major part during the initial stages of product development. 3D-animation, explanatory graphics, and informative images can provide a taste of what is to come.

Quadrillion TV is delighted to have been chosen by a brand-new British aerospace consortium to promote the launch of their autonomous cargo drone, Sky Hopper.

This brief article describes the benefits of video for product launches, concepts and initiatives – partially illustrated with a look at the Sky Hopper initiative.

Why Video

A Product Launch Video can bring any product in any industry to life through sight, sound and motion.

Here are just some of the benefits of using Product Launch and Demo Videos in campaigns:

  • Build excitement for the product with sight, sound, and motion
  • Grow interest and adoption with effective calls-to-action (CTAs) that drive traffic
  • Motion graphics and animation, allows you to see what is difficult to describe
  • Highlight key benefits and features of the product
  • Highly portable format – can be easily embedded in web pages, blogs and social media feeds
  • SEO-friendly (search engine optimization) through transcription & subtitles

Sky Hopper Initiative

Sky Hopper will be an electrically-powered Autonomous (un-manned) Cargo Drone.

With a target payload of one hundred kilograms, it will be ideal for serving isolated areas.

Highly-advanced technology, environmentally friendly electric power, and quality British aerospace engineering are central to Sky Hopper.

Because the Sky Hopper initiative is still at the conceptual stage, video was chosen to bring the innovative device to life. We have been able to do just this with the help of 3D-animation and illuminative graphics.

Blueprint

Drone Model

A series of short, informative videos are being created to support the on-going development of the project, which is in 3 stages:

  1. Concept – design scoping, and operations analysis
  2. Demonstrator – structures, electronics and first flights
  3. Equity Investment – flight proving and operations

The videos will also support a crowd-funding exercise, leading to an Enterprise Investment Scheme.

Directly linked to the highly informative Sky Hopper website, the videos are designed to create interest – even excitement – in this advanced British aerospace project.

This will be achieved through videos that contain very short interviews with key personnel, illustrative imaging of the machine itself from the drawing board to the first flight.

Uplifting music, informative commentary, stylish graphics, skilfully shot interviews and advanced 3D-Animation aim to be a recipe for success.

Video Can Enhance

Producing video is an increasingly popular strategy for commerce and industry, as it seeks to increase online presence and capture market share in a crowded and competitive marketplace.

Visually, product launch and concept videos can:

  • Highlight key product features and benefits
  • Include screen captures for demonstrations and in-depth analysis
  • Show the product in real-time through life-like animation (and actuality)
  • Be optimised for use in IAAS (Infrastructure as a Service), web, and mobile applications

The viewer’s experience is vitally important, as they are giving up time to watch. The risk of poor storytelling is very simple – you’re ignored. A high click-through rate is not enough. If the video draws people in, the all-important completion rate will also be high – success!

From software training sessions and onboarding demos, to showcasing the benefits and features of your automotive, tech, financial service, or entertainment concept…

…Product Launch and Demo Videos help ‘show’ what you can’t ‘tell’.

 

 

What can Quadrillion offer Not-for-Profit Organisations?

A video presentation needs to produce results for any organisation. The possibilities are greater today as a result of the Internet. Having your presentation online means a wider audience, a higher profile, and (if needed) greater donations.

To ensure results, video needs to be used for its strengths – as an emotional engager, a visual storyteller and a medium for conveying simple, meaningful headlines.

Our experience shows that cramming too much information into a video doesn’t work. So, be brief and to the point. Allow our creative approach to emotionally engage your audience. Then, almost any campaign can benefit from the use of video.

Simple things can make a huge difference – your message must show that viewers really can make a difference; short but sweet will hold their attention; bold contact information will increase donations.

If you need a little longer to tell your story, you can still keep it simple and effective. Take the viewer on a journey from a strong beginning, through to an engaging middle and finally to a fulfilling end. An engaging narrative with supporting case studies and illustrations, plus an eye-catching call to action will do the job.

Your video must be authentic. The ideal campaign film should contain a balance of anxiety and hope. Move your audience – shock them perhaps, but leave them feeling that they can make a difference.

Personal testimonies can be used to powerful effect. Video can tackle uncomfortable issues, and allow the viewer to see people they might never otherwise meet. This means charities can cut through pre-conceptions, tackle ignorance and stigma, to provide insight and understanding.

We use the best storytelling techniques such as jeopardy and twists that not only surprise the viewer, but also keeps them involved.

A proper creative brief is vital. We advise you to write a list of key messages, ideally in order of importance, which your video needs to convey. Limit yourself to a maximum of five – less if possible. Some of the most effective videos simply have one over-arching message.

Be clear about who your target audience is and what you want the tone of the piece to be.

Resist the urge to think of a creative concept. It’s our job to generate ideas and think creatively on your behalf. Once you are totally happy with the approach we can then work together to bring it to life.

The Food Chain

We recommend a cross-platform strategy; harnessing all the elements of online and social media to target your audience and allow them to easily find you.

Ultimately, a well-planned, creatively produced and delivered campaign will reap results. Throughout the Not-for-Profit sector there are amazing stories to tell. What better way to tell them than through video.
