A video just for you: How personalized video is changing the game

personalized video
In the last few years, we’ve seen personalization emerge as an exciting new trend in interactive video. This technology pulls data about users to create unique personalized video experiences, making users feel as though they’re having a live, one-on-one interaction about their specific situation.

How does personalization work?

A good example of personalization would be a wireless carrier’s customer bill. Because companies usually share these statements in a static format—either online or in print—the customer must take it upon herself to navigate the disparate elements of her bill, seeking out explanations for voice or data charges, and context/comparison against past months’ charges on her own. If she doesn’t understand something or has questions about her bill, her only recourse is to locate the contact information for customer service, and then call or submit an email inquiry.

Why enterprise companies should go interactive

why enterprise companies should go interactive
This post was originally published by Kaltura on Feb. 16, 2017.

The mass consumption of online video hit an all-time high in 2016. Facebook, Snapchat, and YouTube alone saw more than 20 billion video views per day—a trend that’s most definitely changing consumer expectations as it relates to all of our online experiences, whether as an employee or consumer.

The question for big enterprise companies isn’t whether or not to include video in their communications, training, and customer experience strategies. Rather, the question is how to leverage video in a scalable and strategic manner that includes driving needle-moving, measurable behavior change.
