How film production companies can help organisations to succeed

No organisation will succeed if they do not communicate effectively with their target audience. In order to communicate effectively, it is important to use the most engaging media format – film. With this, you can retain interest, be remembered and convey complex messages with ease.

With the rise of the internet and social media in recent times, it has now made it very easy and quick for all types of organisations to communicate to their audience. This could be a small sole trader announcing themselves on the marketplace, a large corporation recruiting new graduates, a charity raising awareness or a government department informing the public on an important issue. Although it is easy and quick for these organisations to put out these messages on their social media channels or through other avenues, it can also be difficult to get these messages heard. This is because the internet is now a fiercely competitive marketplace with millions of organisations all attempting to communicate their desired message.

Most organisations attempt to communicate through text and/or image, but they will struggle to stand out from the crowd with these media formats. Instead, you will want to grab the viewer’s attention and retain it. The most engaging form of media is film, as this combines both video and audio elements. A Harvard Business Review states that people remember 70% of what they hear and see, but only 20% of what they hear and 30% of what they see. Not just this, but the film also has no limitations and it easily enables you to quickly and succinctly convey complex concepts and messages. Whether you are trying to define a product, explain a training problem, define your organisation’s identity or explain the manufacturing process, the most effective and engaging way to do this is through the film.

Whilst film is a fantastic media format to use for any organisation aiming to communicate effectively, it is also imperative that it is created by reputable and experienced film production companies. These companies have the skill, vision and experience to create a top quality film, as well as access to industry leading equipment.

This is how you ensure that it is a sleek, informative, entertaining and high quality film which will communicate your desired message. Without this, the film would be ignored and could even damage your reputation. However, when you have a high quality film, upload it to highly visible spaces and it will impress viewers and boost your reputation.

For all organisations, the key to success is communication. Although it is now easier than ever to communicate with your target audience, it is also much harder to stand out and be remembered. This is why it is beneficial for all organisations to use a form of media which people find particularly engaging – film. With high quality film, you can advertise, update, inform, recruit, raise awareness and plenty more all whilst keeping and retaining your audience’s attention.

Mercedes-Benz replaces robots with humans on its assembly lines

There are many articles that warn of the inevitable loss of jobs as robots become increasingly advanced and replace humans in certain industries. One of the most publicized of these is the car manufacturing sector, where machines have been making humans redundant for many years. But Mercedes-Benz, it seems, is doing the opposite; the German vehicle maker is replacing assembly robots with humans.

A report from Bloomberg states that the robots cannot handle the complexity of the many customization options available on the company’s new S-Class sedan. These include carbon-fibre trims, heated and cooled cup holders, seat cover colors, various in-car technology, and even four different types of caps for the tire valves.

Mercedes-Benz said that the robots take too long to reprogram and retool when adapting them for new production runs, so the company has hired more flexible and dexterous humans to complete the tasks.

“Robots can’t deal with the degree of individualization and the many variants that we have today,” said Markus Schaefer, the firm’s head of production. “We’re saving money and safeguarding our future by employing more people.”

The robots are being replaced at the company’s biggest manufacturing plant, the 101-year old Sindelfingen factory in Germany, which produces 400,000 vehicles a year and processes 1500 tons of steel a day.

Not all the robots will find themselves looking for new jobs. Many of the smaller machines will work in tandem with employees to perform some of the core repetitive tasks, with the more complex elements of production handled by the humans. The company is calling the processes of man and machine working side-by-side “robot farming.”

While Mercedes-Benz’s decision doesn’t mean the trend of many jobs becoming automated will end, it does show that humans and robots working together can be more productive than machines working alone.

“We’re moving away from trying to maximize automation with people taking a bigger part in industrial processes again,” said Schaefer. “We need to be flexible.”

World’s first wireless flexible smartphone lets you ‘feel’ an ebook

Flexible smartphones were once talked about as being the ‘next big thing’ for the industry, but apart from the occasional limited demonstration at a convention, the hype surrounding the technology has died down – possibly because it’s taking so long to arrive. But now, Canadian researchers have created a device that may be the first step toward a truly flexible smartphone screen.

Created by researchers at Queen’s University Human Media Lab, the prototype ReFlexis the world’s first flexible smartphone to feature a full-color, high-resolution display and wireless technology.

ReFlex uses a 720p LG Display Flexible OLED touchscreen and is powered by an Android 4.0 KitKat board mounted on the side of the display. It also features a voice coil that allows the phone to simulate forces and friction through highly detailed vibrations.

Being flexible doesn’t just make the ReFlex look cool, the device lets you use its physical properties as a way of interacting with certain software. There are sensors on the back of the display to measure the amount of force you’re using to bend it, which is then translated into actions within various apps.

“This represents a completely new way of physical interaction with flexible smartphones,” said lab director Roel Vertegaal in a press release.

When reading an ebook, for example, an extreme bend will flip through the pages faster. You can even aim your slingshot in Angry Birds by bending the screen. The smartphone’s vibrations will make it feel like the pages are flicking across your fingers, or imitate the sensation of a rubber band being stretched.

“Users can feel the sensation of the page moving through their fingertips via a detailed vibration of the phone. This allows eyes-free navigation, making it easier for users to keep track of where they are in a document,” Vertegaal said.

The ReFlex prototype will be presented at the Conference on Tangible Embedded and Embodied Interaction in Eindhoven today.
