Overcast Shortlisted For UX Awards

Overcast HQ is delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for the inaugural UX Awards in Ireland. We’ve been recognised in the category of UX Achievement in Productivity & Utilities.

We’re particularly delighted about this since ease of use was our key objective when building a collaborative cloud-based video management platform. Targeted specifically at businesses, the main strategy behind the architecture and UI is to make it possible for technical and more importantly non-technical business teams to carry out video creation tasks without the need to engage video editors or engineers.

Such is the success of the usability of the platform that we have integrated the Review and Approvals UI directly into Avid’s Media Central | Cloud UX solution and become a senior media partner with Amazon Web Services.

About the UX Awards

The UX Awards is a new awards programme that provides a platform from which to amplify and celebrate the UX world and the incredible contribution those in it — the designers, developers, agencies, clients, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders — make to economies and societies.

The awards ceremony will take place in the Ballsbridge Hotel, Dublin on Thursday, June 20th. Congratulations to all of the shortlisted candidates in the first ever Irish UX Awards and we look forward to seeing you at the awards ceremony next month.

Enterprise Video Strategy: Scaling and Expanding

Live streaming became one of the most popular uses of video during the pandemic as enterprises needed to communicate with external stakeholders and also employees who were working from home.

In 2022 the popularity of this form of mass communication is not waning at all.

Video podcasting is also on the increase. Use cases include communicating with customers, marketing, sales, and training.

Video Now Main Form of Content For Enterprises

“Video is now poised to become the main form of content that’s digested in the enterprise. The huge surge in video meetings was the first wave in the shift to the visual enterprise. The second wave that is arriving now and in 2022 is about the need to organise, optimise, and deliver visual content to users.” — Aragon Research Globe for Enterprise Video, 2022.

This demonstrates the need for providers to step forward with innovative technology that enables enterprises to create, manage and distribute video content. The key focus for enterprises is on customer experience and employee engagement.

The Role of Video in Digital Transformation

In 2020 workplaces as we knew them experienced massive unexpected disruption.

Enterprises found themselves faces with a need for rapid digital transformation when the pandemic necessitated employees to work remotely. Suddenly, colleagues and managers were not in the same room to share information or collaborate on team projects.

This led to much upheaval among workforces. However, a magic pill to cure those ills was close at hand: video!

Influencers With A Cause

Social media activism creates opportunities for grassroots movements to evolve and expand. Some of the best-known examples are the Ice Bucket Challenge, #MeToo and Black Lives Matter, which have all involved successful social media movements.

So, how do creators and influencers with a cause go about making a difference?

James Dean was a rebel without a cause, but nowadays social causes are top of mind for creators, according to a study by Adobe.

Does Being A Creator Make You Happy?

The words ‘social media’ and ‘mental health’ are not always happy bedfellows, so it’s a legitimate question to ask, “Does being a creator make you happy?”

It takes time and effort to be create content, distribute it, and build a community, so what impact does all of that effort have on a creator’s mental health?

Adobe’s ‘Creators In The Creator Economy’ global study shows that creative people are happy people!
