Healthcare, naturally….

the perfect balance between health and care

“Health care should be easily accessible,” says Seth Young, Director of Web Services for Piedmont Healthcare. “So video captions for the hearing impaired is natural for us.” Seth continues, “Plus we want to be proactive about all the new government mandates for captioning.”

Piedmont Healthcare, a billion-dollar nonprofit based in Atlanta with 7,000 employees across Georgia, uses video with captions to get the word out on its websites as well as on YouTube.

“We just tag our videos and they’re done before we know it,” says Seth, referring to his use of dotSUB’s seamless integration with the Brightcove online video platform for captioning. “So easy, we don’t even think about it!”

Piedmont’s ‘Promise’ videos, are recovery stories; warm, reassuring, down-to-earth. They present a perfect balance between health and care to successfully drive traffic to the site. 

In fact, Piedmont Healthcare is increasing its commitment to video, and going a little Hollywood! A new HealthWatchMD video series / news blog will follow doctors around in dramatic CSI-like episodes featuring forensic science. A new educational website is also in the works that will feature dotSUB’s interactive transcripts beside the videos so viewers can read, search and click-thru to exactly the right video moment.

Viewership of company videos is also strong inside the company since the executive team provides quarterly updates in video too. For those that want the information in other media, Piedmont’s web team uses dotSUB’s transcripts to make up a nifty interview-style document for company wide distribution.

New Embedded Transcripts Help Drive Video Viewers

dotSUB now offers a cool way of embedding your video’s transcription or translation text right into your site.

With our new transcript embed, you can tease the story of your video in text in various languages to attract different viewers to your video. They just click-thru to watch your video at the bottom of the transcript.

The same language auto-selection feature is part of the benefit too. When embedding just select ‘Auto Selection’ and the embed will match the user’s language to its browser if available. If you are looking to embed in only one language, we support that as well.

Here is a great example of the new embed with our Chairman Michael Smolens and new CEO David Orban discussing dotSUB’s future.

From Japan, “a positive ray of light at the disaster site”

Just in from Japan, a lovely rescue story of 3 elders stranded by tsunami for 3 days…

 

Dominick Chen, a friend of our Founder’s from Tokyo, sent this short video in an hour ago saying, “I’ve just uploaded / transcribed / translated in Japanese, English and French, this video showing a positive ray of light at the disaster site.”

Please watch and add more translations on dotSUB to this sweet short story.

Love this part—after 42 hours stuck on the 2nd floor of a mostly destroyed building, one old man responds with a smile to a reporter’s question with this perspective:

[Reporter] What was your ordeal like?
[GrandPa] You know, I even came through the tsunamis from Chile [back in 1960], so I’m alright.
[GrandPa] Yeah, let’s just build it all over again!

To help our rescue, relief & recovery efforts, here some charities helping the people in Japan’s disaster areas:

Google Crises Center

Japanese Red Cross Society / Japan Earthquake donations

Global Giving Japan Earthquake And Tsunami Relief Fund

Nippon Foundation/CANPAN Northeastern Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund

Tower of Babel v2.0 or How to Reach Global Audiences With Multi-lingual Video

dotSUB Social Media Week panel: (L to R) Michael Smolens, G. Gooder, Klaus Steeg, Robin Kent & Paul Farkas.

As news from Egypt’s revolution streamed across the web, and several protester videos from Cairo appeared in dotSUB’s website for translation, Michael Smolens, Founder and Chairman of dotSUB was leading a panel discussion about how to reach global audiences with multi-lingual video for Social Media Week at the Paley Center for Media / NYC.

Smolens described how global Internet and online video usage are exploding, and led the panel in illustrating how translation and subtitling of video content can increase cross-cultural communications, educational benefits and engagement opportunities for all organizations. Lively discussion focused on how new technologies promote distribution of video that’s accessible to more people around the world.

“Opportunities opened up because of new technologies,” said Klaus Steeg, Managing Director / NYC of OSHO International, describing how community translations of their thousands of hours of single-language videos were turned into an innovative revenue stream via YouTube’s soon-to-be public pay-per-view rental store.

“Traffic Math,” is how Brightcove’s G. Gooder calibrates the growing business value based on the quantity, quality, distribution and devices on which users can discover online video today. Video examples from NHL Player’s AssociationGEU.S. Army and ICANN demonstrated his points and led to further discussion of monetization possibilities to pay for it all..

Robin Kent, Founder of The Fearless Group, discussed new advertising models and an ingenious initiative to bring music fans together with their favorite bands through lyrics subtitling and translations. A charming music video sample illustrated the possibilities.

SocialTV, the concept and the startup company, were described by Paul Farkas, Collaborator-in-Residence at Watchitoo.com, as largely about the conversation around movies, TV and online video. Interactive SocialTV can add shared viewing and storytelling as well as elements of co-creation including adding subtitles and translations.

Lots of Q&A continued the conversation, so the dotSUB team knows we’ll need to present more of these sessions about global online video at other venues soon!vkhack.comраскрутка сайта казаньнакрутить лайки на аву
