Remote Directed Video Compared to Other Methods of Testimonial Video Production

Producing video testimonials has traditionally been expensive and complicated for businesses, and disruptive for customers. Remote Directed Video is a premium experience that’s easy for customers and results in more effective testimonials that you can produce faster and more cost-effectively.

Compared to Traditional On-Location Productions

Traditional Video Production vs. Remote Directed Video Production Comparison Chart

While the quality of video captured by high-end cinema cameras can’t be beat, sending film crews with full gear to a customer’s locations is expensive and time-consuming.

Having a film crew invade your customer’s home or office is also highly disruptive and can eat up a whole day of their precious time.

Remote Directed Video‘s Hollywood-grade remote video recording technology enables us to capture crystal-clear, professional video from anywhere in the world, with trained directors who are able to remotely adjust the customer’s camera settings and communicate with remote subjects to maximize the production quality of your videos.

With a remote director to guide them through the recording process and ask the right questions, customers can feel comfortable and confident to give their best performances, and deliver more compelling, higher converting customer stories.

Compared to UGC Video Testimonial Software and Streaming Apps

Steaming Video Production vs. Remote Directed Video Production Comparison Chart

The ability to send somebody a link to an app made for collecting video testimonials is incredibly convenient, and so is streaming software like Zoom or Skype, but these tools leave a lot to be desired in terms of the consistency and quality of the final testimonial video.

No matter how much instruction you provide to a customer, leaving them to their own devices with User-Generated Content (UGC) video apps rarely results in well-shot videos and they often don’t cover the talking points you were looking for. While video conferencing software has to stream the content to and from their servers before recording, resulting in low resolution, glitchy footage.

Remote Directed Video provides a concierge experience for your customers, so they don’t get frustrated while trying to provide their testimonial and start deducting points in their review. With RDV, footage is recorded locally and not streamed, to maintain full HD resolution and audio.
