USATODAY.com - Bowl marketers think small

"NEW YORK - This year, Super Bowl ads will be anywhere you want them to be: on TV during the game, on the Web, on your iPod, even on your wireless phone.

The small-screen media add return for advertisers on the cost to make game ads and the average $2.5 million per 30 seconds this year to air them. "It's a better way to amortize the cost of Super Bowl ads," says Seth Palansky, NFL spokesman. "The goal is more places to get your ad seen."

The goal is to engage audiences beyond a 30-second ad," says Nicole Bradley, Pepsi-Cola spokeswoman. Pepsi will offer more content related to its Diet Pepsi game ads starting Monday when it launches www.brownandbubbly.com." (More):

Video blogging: Homemade movies bring humanity to Web

Josh Leo shook New Yorker Jay Dedman's hand for the first time in July.

Although they had never met face-to-face, when the 22-year-old Calvin College senior visited the 32-year-old Dedman in New York, the two embraced as old friends.

Both Leo and Dedman are video bloggers (or "vloggers"). Think blog, but with video clips. The two discovered one another by watching each other's lives on videos posted to their respective Web pages.

"It's people posting video directly to the Internet on a blog," says Leo, who posts video at joshleo.com. "There's different kinds, different styles -- news, personal, tutorial -- whatever."

Watching video blogs can be addicting, says Leo, who subscribes to more than 230.

Since May 2004, the video blogging Yahoo Group, co-launched by Dedman, has jumped from 10 users to more than 2,000 members. Although impressive, that number could use some beefing up, Leo says.


RocketBoom eBay Ad


Rocketboom (Jan. 30 Show) is a three minute daily videoblog based in New York City and is one of the most popular video shows on the internet.

For the highest bidder, we will create five original, fifteen second (minimum) - one minute (maximum) post-roll commercials that will span five days of programming, Monday-Friday, March 6 through March 10, 2006. Each day that week a different commercial that we create for your company will be played at the conclusion of the Rocketboom episode.

Rocketboom reaches a minimum of 130,000 people per day and each day's video, over the course of several days, receives over 200,000 complete views. Thus, the advertisement reach for this auction is currently a minimum of one million views.

The five unique advertisements, along with hyperlinks to your website, will also become a part of our archived web pages. They will remain freely available, searchable, index-able, re-distributable, and on demand. Additionally, direct links to each commercial will be available for at least one year.

The advertisements will be interactive when played by our online Quicktime audience (approx. half of our web audience). This means that at any time an audience member is watching the ad, they will be able to click anywhere on the ad, at any time during the duration of the ad, to launch a webpage link to your website in a separate browser window. Also, within the Quicktime version, your ad will exist via a chapter marker, making it easy for the audience to navigate to the ad from within the regular Rocketboom program.

At the end of the week's run, we will generate a detailed statistical report including an accurate count of successful video plays, top referrers, top regions of origin as well as provide you with a complete copy of our raw log files for all five days. We will later provide a video download report at the end of each month for three months.

This auction is a bid for advertisement space on Rocketboom, in addition to payment for our creative services. The actual advertisements (the content) will be created and owned solely by Rocketboom and exist as a part of our regular Rocketboom show under a creative commons, non-commercial, share-alike, license.

InformationWeek | The Sundance Film Festival Online | Watch Sundance And Stay Warm | January 30, 2006: "The Sundance Film Festival has long played host to cinematic innovators and their imaginative productions. Now the film festival is tapping into technology innovation to showcase video blogging, podcasts, and short films on the Internet.


For the first time, more than half --50 of 73--of the festival's short films are available online. It's rare for filmmakers to let the public view their original content on the Web.

The 2006 Sundance Web site underwent an overhaul to make navigation easier and to bring the film festival online. Improvements include faster downloads, sharper graphics, an expanded help section, and weather and news updates on the home page. "We're superexcited to be using Flash 8 codec this year," says Joseph Beyer, associate programmer, Sundance Film Festival producer, Sundance Institute Online. "We think it's an amazing upgrade to Flash video, and we're extremely pleased with the results." The films are being offered at 700 Kbps for high-bandwidth users. It gives them a much larger video window in which to enjoy the shorts." (more)

AP: Amateur Video Sharing Grows Online

View this clip on Vimeo

NEW YORK - Over the past year, Janelle Gunther (Above Video Clip made by Janelle) occasionally captured video with her Canon PowerShot digital camera: An elephant parading through city streets to the Ringling Bros. circus, her friends on stage during an improv dance show.

But the clips simply sat on her computer unwatched — until last weekend, when she began adding them to Vimeo, one of several sites to emerge for sharing amateur footage.

There's no shortage of sites willing to accept such video, and once issues of revenues, copyright and ease of use get sorted out, the sharing of personal video promises to become as commonplace as photo-sharing is today.

"For the past six months or so, a lot of these sites have been popping up," said Jakob Lodwick, Vimeo's founder. "It went from being none to there being new ones every couple of weeks."

Blogarithms: Rocketboom Auctions Advertising

Over the past few months there’s been some speculation about the value of an advertising slot at the end of a Rocketboom segment. Jeff Jarvis was quoted in the New York Times (Times Select) in December as saying that based on 100,000 downloads a day one advert could cost $8,000.

Well, that was almost two months ago. Rocketboom now gets 130,000 downloads a day. And producer Andrew Baron and presenter Amanda Congdon are about to find out how much that’s worth. Next week they will auction off Rocketboom’s first week of advertising on eBay.

What makes this auction even more interesting is that the winning bidder will have to relinquish control of the advertising to Baron and Congdon who are going to make the adverts themselves. If a company insists on making its own advert, then Congdon and Baron will vet it (and exercise a veto) before it runs. And this policy will apply to all future adverts on Rocketboom.

I’ll leave it to the advertising experts to make of the policy what they will. But if Rocketboom’s ads are as good as the show, you can almost guarantee a large slice of the audience will stick around to watch it.

MediaPost Publications - TiVo Rolls Out Podcasting, Other Broadband Apps - 01/24/2006

TiVo Rolls Out Podcasting, Other Broadband Apps - 01/24/2006: "TIVO THIS WEEK IS WRAPPING up the rollout of a host of broadband services that include access to podcasts, games, music, and online movie ticketing, through the user's living room TV.
The program, which began in November, gives TiVo users who also have broadband connections the ability to access any podcast on the Web, and play the audio on their TV sets.

Jim Denney, TiVo's vice president of product marketing, said the offerings were a 'good fit' for the company. 'These are things that are media-oriented,' he said, adding that podcasts are the type of product 'that you might take with you, but you also might want to have access to these in the living room.'
The podcasts are read through an RSS application designed in-house by TiVo. The podcasts are played, not recorded, so they don't use any storage space on the device hard drive, and any ads placed in the bit stream are left intact. "

iPod Garage : iPod, iTunes, and Music : News, Commentary, and Reviews : Switch to the iPod Garage - Video Podcasting starts with a video camcorder

iPod Garage : iPod, iTunes, and Music : News, Commentary, and Reviews : Switch to the iPod Garage - Video Podcasting starts with a video camcorder: "For creating a video podcast you are going to need a video camcorder. There are some options to consider:

1 CCD vs 3 CCD -- the glass is important too
DV tape or mini DVD or hard drive
Standard vs HD resolution

Apple has a list of compatible camcorders, and all the cameras sold through the Apple Store are iMovie-compatible.

Since this is for video podcasting I will exclude HD cameras as HD is just too big for fast downloads. That will change in a few years, but we are living in the present.

Almost all of the cameras sold at the Apple Store are MiniDV, the Sanyo C5 Digital Media Camera uses SD memory cards. If you are in a studio or near a computer you can record straight into iMovie. There are also camcorders that will record to DVD media and to internal hard drives. I'd stick with MiniDV tapes for now."

Business Week: Is the Web the New Hollywood?

The Internet is becoming a breeding ground for filmmakers and TV producers in both the indie-video and mainstream worlds

When Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs flashed a clip of the video blog Tiki Bar TV during the October launch of Apple's new video iPod, he turned the rollickingly sophomoric show into an instant online hit. Filmed in a 1950s-style bachelor pad, the bimonthly program is a farcical series of ad-libbed skits built around cocktails with names like the Volcano and the Red Oktober. Tiki Bar TV was launched on a lark about 10 months ago, and it attracts about 200,000 viewers, an audience the size of some established cable shows.

After years of hype, the Internet as TV is finally coming into its own. Never before has the opportunity been so great to take programming straight to the audience, circumventing the traditional film-industry production and distribution system. Until now, clever animated shorts or video clips that made a splash online have trod a well-worn path straight to TV, showing up on MTV, the Tonight Show, or even commercials. But not everyone considers online TV a stepping stone to Hollywood's bright lights. (more)

"Online video is hot, and you can judge that from the break neck growth of You Tube. The San Mateo, California company was founded in February 2005, and a year later it is serving more than 3 million video views a day, receiving about 8,000 video uploads a day from users and transferring 16 terabytes of data a day. Add to the mix Google video and half-a-dozen others, and you get the idea that video-sharing is the hottest thing on the Internet.

REVIEW / Online video face-off: Apple versus Google / Tech giants hope TV show downloads are next big thing

"In just a matter of months, online video has become an obsession among Internet companies, which hope to become the television channels of the future. Consumers, the theory goes, would tune into shows on their computers or mobile devices in what is known as digital convergence.

Today, only a smattering of prime-time programs are available online. But more are expected as Google and Apple, in addition to an array of other firms, seek deals with Hollywood to bring sports, news, film and television to a computer screen near you.
Over several days, The Chronicle tested both Google's and Apple's video offerings to see how they measured up. The verdict? Although online video on demand offers significant promise, it falls far short in key areas that -- unless addressed -- may keep the format from going mainstream. " (more)

Rutland Herald: 'Vlogs' make blogs so 2005

Rutland Herald: Rutland Vermont News & Information: "Initially, blogging opened up written journalism to anybody with a computer and an Internet connection. Then podcasting appeared, and every accountant or bartender who harbored dreams of hosting a radio show could do just that, and distribute it to the world.

Now it is video's turn to break away from its old masters, the television stations and Hollywood studios.

Video blogging, or vlogging, started catching on in the middle of last year.

'I'm averaging about 15th place on iTunes. I keep getting tons more subscribers, which is great,' says Chris Wireman, 43, a Denver software engineer with a skateboarding vlog.

Wireman has been skateboarding since he was a teenager and videotaping skating adventures for several years. He decided to bring more entrepreneurial energy to his videos and started the vlog in September." (more)

National Business Review (NBR) - 'French maids' show video bloggers how to do it

National Business Review:

Oooo, la la, that's some firewire you have there, mon cher!

"Interesting in video blogging but not sure how to get started? What you need is a saucy little lesson from the French Maids, perhaps.

If this website isn't a bit of viral marketing fluff conceived and implemented by Apple and Quicktime, it should be -- but that doesn't make it any less fun, or reduce its effectiveness as a teaching tool.

Time will tell, perhaps, about the viral marketing aspect of the project, but for now the French Maids -- who purport to be podcasters, running a site that will eventually house multiple podcasts -- have only one episode in their inventory, a 'how to' for DIY-inclined videocasters.

Yes, that's them in the picture.

From left, there's Laura, a 'Southern Shaolin Kung-Fu 2nd degree black belt' with a print model background. Laura 'graduated magna cum laude from USC in international relations' and 'doesn't take any crap.' " (more)

Dvorak Uncensored : Meta Coverage of CES2006

Meta Coverage of CES2006

By John C. Dvorak

After last week's Consumer Electronics Show, it's apparent to me that Gary Shapiro, the head of the CES, needs to spin off the computer gear and do a show called CES Computers, or some other such thing. This would separate the typical CES home entertainment equipment and weird gizmos from the SATA hard drives, microprocessor manufacturers, wireless gear, and case-mod offerings.

Last year I found CES to be so hectic and over-covered that I didn't make any attempt to go this year. Instead, I coded a CES metapage [www.dvorak.org/CES] for my blog that highlighted the best coverage by others. With around 2,500 exhibitors, there were an estimated 6,500 analysts and media members attending the event. This is nearly three people per booth. That made my attendance beyond redundant. (more)

Larry Page, Co-founder and President of Google Products announces two releases at this year's CES: Google Pack and the Google Video Store. Guests include comedian Robin Williams, NBA star Kenny Williams, and CBS Chief Executive Leslie Moonves.

riverfronttimes.com | News & Features | Feature | Sweet and Lo-Fi | (Article Excerpts)

riverfronttimes.com News & Features Feature Sweet and Lo-Fi 2006-01-11: "Standing near the entrance of the gleaming white Apple Store here at Michigan and Huron, Streeter is accompanied by Richard Hall, a mellow, bearded college professor from Rolla with a desert-dry wit. Having rendezvoused in St. Louis earlier that morning, Hall and Streeter have driven four and a half hours up Interstate 55 to co-headline Meet the Vloggers, the first major regional summit on the burgeoning art of video blogging. Also known as 'vlogging' or 'video podcasting,' the discipline is akin to a standard blog, except with an audiovisual content focus, and is to traditional podcasting (i.e., audio-only webcasts that can be downloaded onto iPods and various other multimedia platforms) as moving pictures are to radio.
'A lot of people say, 'Why not just do a podcast?'' Streeter tells the crowd of 60 or so who fill the tiny amphitheater in the back of the massive Apple-teria. 'I think the face is what does it. It's the theater of the face.'

But for Josh Leo, a college-age co-presenter and fellow vlogger (see joshleo.com), it's about much, much more.

"Think how great it could be if your grandkids could look at a video clip from when you were twenty and say, 'Wow, look at what a weirdo my grandpa was,'" says Leo, before veering wildly idealistic. "If everyone had a video blog, there might be less conflict in the world. Let's say there's a vlogger in Baghdad. He's not filtered through mainstream media. He's coming directly to someone's desk from Baghdad."

"I mainly film rock & roll bands," Streeter demurs. "I cover things in my town that people in my town may not even know about."
Streeter's town is St. Louis, which has flowered into his city of destiny since his move south from Chicago in 2001. This past February Streeter debuted his video blog, lofistl.com, featuring live music videos of high-energy local acts like the Vultures and Casey Reid along with short documentaries about cultural institutions like the South Broadway Athletic Club and Frederick's Music Lounge.
