Video and the internet have changed the way we communicate. But one thing has not changed: the impact of a human face in communication. Humans naturally connect with the image of a human face…whether in a video or in person. And many times, that face on video is talking straight into the camera…. And a teleprompter.

A teleprompter is a tool that displays scripted material in front of a lens, allowing a spokesman to deliver messages while looking directly into the camera lens. It’s an extremely useful tool.  With recent improvements in screen technology, teleprompters have become smaller and more accessible.

As useful as it is, it is not a magic bullet. There are a few techniques to make it work well.

It’s important to remember that a teleprompter is only as good as its script

Write your script to be spoken, not read. Use conversational language that works for the audience you are trying to reach. Shorter words are better, and so are short sentences..

Along with trying to speak to the audience in a language they understand, it’s also important for the spokesperson to be comfortable with the language. It the presenter is struggling with long sentences or unfamiliar language, the audience can feel lost.

There’s no substitute for practice. The more you practice and personalize the text, the more you’ll put meaning to the words.

Practice reading your script aloud. Take it into the bathroom, and practice reading it into a mirror. Change the language to match your speaking style. Make it yours.

A teleprompter can also be used as guide for an interview or testimonial, when the person being recorded is not looking directly into the lens.

Here at St Louis Video Production, we have a lot of experience helping clients be “the best they can be” on camera. For more information, please give us a call.

Challenged by world-class competitors, manufacturing companies in the United States have undergone a renaissance in the last decade. The renaissance started on the shop floor with an emphasis on built-in quality, the elimination of waste, and faster throughputs. But attention quickly turned upstream to product development.  We were able to help in this endeavor by webcasting an event to company engineers around the globe.  Over a 12-day period we were able to broadcast a live webcast to all the offices so the teams could view the integration of new product designs.

A Global Reach
Multiple delivery options allow you to significantly increase your exposure for a fraction of the cost of traditional providers. We use worldwide content delivery, as well as cloud computing hosting, to ensure seamless delivery.

Archiving Your Live Webcast
The value of live webcasts can be extended with the archive — by leveraging your valuable content to other mediums. Incorporating chats, twitter feeds, message boards, in to your webcast, helps you promote and carry the conversation with your audience.

What is the purpose of your video?
Who is your audience?
What is your relationship with the intended audience?
What is the delivery path for the video?
What measurable outcome are you looking to achieve?
What do you want to say and show in the video?
What style and format of video should I use?

There are many different styles and uses of corporate marketing and training videos. Knowing what type of video you are producing and answering all of the above questions will help to determine the proper length for the intended corporate video.

One of the biggest challenges in launching successful diversity programs is the disconnect between diversity and inclusion. Diversity represents a minority group; women, people of color, and LGBT individuals. Inclusion ensures the success and integration of these individuals in the organization, on multiple levels. Ensuring not only diversity in the workplace is present, but rather implemented through inclusion is a key driver to ensuring success in a Diversity program.

Employees and managers need to prioritize diversity as much as they do other business concepts like productivity, efficiency, and profits. Overcoming these challenges requires a variety of top-down business practices to raise awareness of and actively promote workplace diversity

A corporate diversity video is a great way to communicate the company’s diversity goals and challenges to all employees while telling powerful stories that illustrate best practices of inclusion and cross-cultural empowerment and understanding.

Customer testimonial videos are a great way to let your customers do the talking for you. Putting your most successful, happy, or unique customers on screen is a powerful way to attach a real-life narrative to your product or service. Customer stories typically feature one or more customers talking testimonial-style about how your company has made a positive impact on their life or business.

The most valuable part of a customer story video is getting your customers to vocalize the problem they were faced with and how your company provided a solution. Along with interview footage, this type of video is typically packed with lifestyle shots of your customer using your product or service in their own environment.
