New Series of Videos Features Educational Advice from Top Experts Including Veronica Belmont, Nigel Barker and Joe Penna “Mystery Guitar Man”
TouchStorm, a leader in online digital video distribution and creation, today announced that it has partnered with Sony to expand the company’s library of Howdini video content. Sony has added three new series of videos that provide educational information for consumers on a variety of consumer technology topics from today’s leading tech experts. TouchStorm works with brands, such as Sony, to create editorial online videos — not advertising — that help visually guide consumers as they search the Web for relevant information.
The three new video series created for Sony focus on optimizing technology within the home, improving home video and photography skills and learning how to create and post your own online videos. The videos feature three leading technology experts, including co-host of online television show Tekzilla, Veronica Belmont; Fashion photographer and judge of “America’s Next Top Model,” Nigel Barker; and digital filmmaker and “Mystery Guitar Man,” Joe Penna, respectively.
“The new Sony videos feature educational content that is entirely based on consumer demand for the information,” said Jacque Bibeau, senior vice president and managing director of business development for TouchStorm. “Using TouchStorm’s proprietary Search Revelator™ tool, we are able to determine what Sony’s target customers are searching for online as it relates to their consumer technology products and subsequently, create and distribute expert-narrated videos that provide valuable answers to what they are seeking.”
Through research, TouchStorm identified that Sony’s target consumers are not searching online for information on the technical specs of Sony’s consumer technology products. Rather, consumers want to understand how they can best utilize technology within their lifestyle. The new Sony series provides educational advice on these topics, including “How to take the best outdoor photographs,” “How to wirelessly connect your HD products to the Internet” and “How to make a viral video,” among many others. The experts utilize Sony’s leading technology products, including Sony Cyber-shot® and DSLR Digital Cameras, BRAVIA® HDTVs and home theatre systems and Bloggie™ Touch Cameras to showcase how consumers can best utilize the technology within their lifestyle and at home.
“By partnering with today’s leading experts to teach people how to best utilize their home technology products, Sony has the ability to serve as a trusted advisor for consumers as they navigate the digital technology world,” continued Bibeau.
