The Basics

Viziotag is an innovative technology that allows online media publishers to wrap their streaming media in time-based metadata that both greatly enhances the viewing experience and provides highly granular viewing data.

Viziotag works with all forms of online media including YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook Video, AWS S3/Cloudfront, to name a few of the popular streaming platforms, but also with any web-based video or audio file.

Viziotag programs are composed of two primary parts: the video or audio file, as represented by a URL, and the Viziotag menu – a chronological listing of time-stamped deep-tags, “Viziotags”, which provide instant access to that place in the video.   This allows the viewer to quickly scan the contents of the video and navigate to any area of interest; especially important for long-form videos such as event videos, lectures, conferences, panel discussions, etc.. The menu is also searchable.

The Viziotag player monitors and records all viewer activity, generating two primary reports – the Activity Report, which provides a summary of viewing data for all the Viziotag programs in a given account, and the Viewing Log, which shows all of the viewing activity for a given program.  This report is filterable and sortable, providing the ability to isolate viewing data for individual viewers.

Viewers are much more likely to watch a video in full when they have this level of control.  In fact, they’ll watch even more, because they can get back to any point they like. But don’t worry – you can still maintain control over their viewing by tracking which segments are viewed, and by the insertion of quizzes to verify comprehension.

Viziotag also supports several monetization scenarios, allowing YouTube publishers to finally create a real revenue stream, no matter the size of their audience or popularity of their videos.

Finally, Viziotag can provide all necessary services in the production and distribution of video or all kinds, specializing in event video.  This includes deep-tagging and publication services, no matter your preferred platform. Imagine how much more popular your media will be with viewers when they can go back to their favorite bits, review material they need more help with, and share those clips with others.
