Recently we came across a question that made us think that we should teach our blog followers and anyone else who may be interested 7, yes exactly 7 things you did not know about webcasting.
I was speaking with a local event organizer about the topic when she stopped me and said- “We’ve thought about hiring someone to do this for us before, but won’t it stop people from actually coming to the event?”
It seems that this is still a common misconception, wherein people tend to think that enabling online hosting will make people lazy, anti-social, and unwilling to come to the actual venue…
Videotelephony Video Shooting for Fit Minds
Last week Videotelephony had the pleasure of shooting with a wonderful woman named Stephanie. We were working on a shoot for Fit Minds which offers cognitive health products to those suffering from Alzheimer’s and Dementia. The story that Stephanie told was a sad and beautiful one about her mother. Stephanie described to us what she went through as a caregiver and what her mother went through as well. As difficult as it was at times to talk about, the importance of understanding Alzheimzer’s and Dementia and what we all can do to prevent as well...

How can a company video benefit your website?
Compelling content on any website is key.
Sometimes things you never expected to catch your attention DO catch your attention.
When you land on a website learning more about the offering, services or causes are key. Having a company video to explain what a company does, or samples of what they could do are key to making a compelling case for your services. If you think your services, products causes or whatever your business may be is not right for a video or blogging you need to think about WHAT it is that you offer and the ideas will flow.
So what does video accessibility mean anyway?
You have the ability to turn on captions for certain television shows. This allows you to read what is being said. Many people never use this feature but for some people it's a need! Video accessibility is one of our specialties at Videotelephony. What this means is that different people have different needs. Your clients may be deaf, legally blind, hard of hearing, dyslexic or have any number of other disabilities preventing them from completely understanding your offering and limiting their ability to make an informed purchase.
