Edelman PR

When you’re relied upon by brands like Ryanair, Visa and Danone, PR firms like Edelman need to be able to deliver first-in-class work on schedule. By making video collaboration and management much easier, Overcast has helped them meet their video challenges.

The Challenge:

From brand building to reputation management, full service PR firms need to have expertise in multiple digital verticals. One of the biggest shifts over the past decade has been the move to social where firms like Edelman work closely with their clients often sharing responsibility for posting. More recently, social has become video which has meant a having to be able to produce, share  and distribute video content as effectively as a broadcaster without either the resources or the expertise.

The Solution:

Overcast’s Video Content-as-a-Service platform provided a video asset management solution that could manage all the content they needed to share on social.  From first version, through approval processes, and ultimately through transcoding and reformatting, content could be shared everywhere including YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, linkedin, and Facebook.

Being able to invite clients in to see the content before it was a final version was critical. The secure sharing links and user management allowed Edelman to create unique profiles for their users.

The Result:

The client experience was the key qualitative improvement. Having a professional platform to share content on helped to keep the organisation on brand.

Empowering the client services team to automate the transcode and distribution of content reduced the reliance on the studio and allowed the teams to create more content faster.

Finally, they were able to keep all the content in a single, searchable repository which made it easier to share knowledge within the firm and among the different teams.

Video Content-as-a-Service (VCaaS): The Key To Digital Video Transformation

Businesses need to keep changing and innovating in order to be competitive. Such transformation in the digital age involves the integration of digital technologies into all areas of an enterprise, fundamentally changing how that business works.

Video Content-as-a-Service (VCaaS): Manage Video Content Better

In 2018, the global Enterprise Video market size was US$3.68 billion and it is expected to reach US$10.4 billion by the end of 2025 (MarketWatch). Staggering, eh?

When teams in an organisation produce video content (and it really doesn’t matter how much), they need to be able to easily access it, re-use it, collaborate on it, and share it on various platforms in different formats. But video content is complex so existing content management systems don’t cope with it well and can be very problematic when you want to scale your operations.
