Remote Video Capture

Directed Remote Video Capture

Using pro-grade remote video recording technology, RDV captures stunning video footage (up to 4K) with just an iPhone or webcam, with no loss in quality, thanks to our stream-free solution.

A Live Director will be on every video shoot to help your subjects look their best, hit their talking points (by script or interview), look great doing it, and record an effective video.

Our team edits the video footage into rough cuts, based on your specifications, with the animations you select, and any images or video clips you provide – within 7 business days.

Why Do Marketers Choose RDV?

While it can often be assumed that video will make your marketing efforts more effective, producing videos the old-fashioned way is often too costly and complex, and at-home productions take longer than they should and lack the finesse required by some brands.
