Personalised Video Is Changing the Way We Communicate

The legend goes that when the people gathered to view the exhibit of Auguste and Louis Lumière, they were so afraid of the moving image of a train barreling towards them that they ran from the darkened tent in fear. So it is at the birth of a new medium, and while we doubt that personalised video will send anyone screaming from the room, there is still a sense of astonishment when your online video addresses you directly by name and tells you things that only you need to hear.

Taken by itself, personalisation is not new. We have grown used to Amazon recommendations based on previous purchases or even the things we placed in our cart but never intended to buy. Companies have invested heavily in Big Data, gathering as much information about their customers as possible looking for a way to use that information that provides value to the customer as well as to the enterprise. The bills and statements you receive in the mail are personalised inasmuch as they have your name and address on the envelope or they’d never reach you.

Until now online video has been, essentially, a broadcast or one-to-many medium. Personalisation co-opts the breadth of broadcast and adds the depth of direct communication by allowing the voice of the CEO to reach each customer on a one-to-one basis.

Personalised video represents a return to forgotten values where your bank manager knew your name and when your kids were leaving for college. Personalised video is a way to deliver uniquely crafted messaging on a massive scale where every video has been specifically generated for an audience of one.

Personalised video brings personalisation to its logical location – everywhere. Whether you’re watching at work or on the train to work, personalised video will reach you and talk to you and tell you what you need to know. Across the world, companies are beginning to understand the ability of personalised video to clarify, to inform, and, of course, to sell by adhering to fundamental rules of communication:

  • Don’t just tell, show.
  • Address your audience by name and she or he will pay closer attention.
  • There’s no point telling a cat owner how friendly dogs are.

Personalised video represents a major upgrade in the way we communicate providing a moment of “wow” for every viewer.

The Rise of Retrieval-Augmented Generation in AI: What Brands Need To Know

Your typical large language model (LLM) gets its information from the internet. Think of ChatGPT. It uses generative AI to create content quickly and effortlessly. The problem is that sometimes it creates content that isn’t 100% factually correct, aka AI hallucinations. And since it doesn’t cite sources, you can’t always tell what’s bona fide and what’s bogus. This is a real problem if you’re trying to only share information that’s accurate and not, you know, made up out of thin AI air. Enter stage left, retrieval-augmented generation.

The Importance of Data Security for Personalised Video

Personalised Video combines the power of personalisation with everyone’s favourite type of media: video. As with any form of content, adding personalisation requires customer data — the details that make one video different from another and make each video unique to the viewer who receives it. Personalisation is a boon for the digital experience. Research shows that personalisation boosts ROI, and most consumers want personalisation. In fact, they’re 72% more likely to share data with brands if it allows for a more personalised experience. But anytime you’re using personal data, it’s important to be careful with it. That’s especially true in industries like healthcare and finance where data is even more sensitive. There’s no way around it: personalisation demands data security. Personalised Video is no different. When you’re choosing your Personalised Video provider, make sure their level of data security meets your needs.
