Things you may need to know --
Hey, this could be tough! Or fun (often the same thing). Some of the un-specified questions will come from your feedback and communication with us. Click here to go to the feedback page.
Where do I get the content for the E-Broadcasts?
The primary source is right here, from us. Did you check the sample E-broadcasts? Y'see, the EBC has made movies and videos for Federal Express, the Baltimore Orioles, for associations and businesses of all kinds for several years. No kidding, we are dying to increase your sales, membership, or effectiveness through these custom-made on-demand broadcasts. We can incorporate existing footage from any sort of film or video. We can put you (or your CEO) on the Web. You can collaborate in a shared production venture to sell your latest product or train your representatives in the field.
Will I need a “fast” Internet connection
Yes, our E-Broadcasts are designed to “stream” comfortably, and that requires you to have a cable modem, DSL, or better.
What is the typical length of the E-Broadcast?
About 2 minutes plus for the on-demand modules. Sort of like a feature on the Nightly Business Report on public TV. It’s just right for most applications where you want to get a basic message across, or elicit a response such as a contribution, a contact or a purchase.
How do we make money with it?
You can (1) distribute informational videos, training modules, etc., on a pay-per-view basis, or (2) Broadcast moving video of products on your web page, and link that to an order-taking page or contact. Or both. (Remember, you can train/teach/inform a lot of people without the costs of having to gather them from around the country/world into one meeting place. Furthermore, you also save on duplication, mailing and that "I'll get around to looking at this sometime soon, maybe" attitude.)
Does the E-Broadcast Center have a pay-per-view feature?
Yes. It typically works with training or information broadcasts where you would have, in the past, sent out a CDROM or VHS tape to your client or member. Now it's there, "on-demand" and ready-to-go. (No more making copies and mailing them.)
Can I train people with an E-Broadcast?
You can train one person or a dozen with a self-paced interactive presentation. The cheapest way is HDFB-the Hybrid Direct Frame Broadcast. It operates like a slide show with a narrator or instructor, with movies or other motion sequences incorporated in it. And, you train the people wherever there's a computer.
What’s the best way to get started?
To make regular on-demand broadcasts, get our DP0 "Starter Station" at $1900 or our DP1 "ThreeCast" at $3800. Both include an original new web page to accommodate the various features you want. Both include a standard, complete, on-demand, “Update Report” broadcast. The "ThreeCast" option goes further and gives you a new update-report-type event each month for the next 2 months (total=3).
How do we know that the “Update Report” will be accurate and appealing?
We’ll make you a sample. We’ll need your input and facts, as well as researched still pictures or motion video clips from you that you can easily upload to us.
Are all your on-demand broadcast products fully developed and researched?
It's a new industry. Some are still developmental. But yes, they are substantially ready as described (click here for details). The concept is ready, the “shell” is ready, and the rest is a fruit of collaboration between you and us.
Do all of your fees and costs have a “dependable bottom line?”
We’re trying. CyberSystems (our parent company) featured that slogan as a feature of producing video training and marketing movies. The better the understanding is up-front, the more reliable the price quoted, naturally. Talk to some of our reference clients.
I need a specific answer, and I don't see the question here.
Since this is a new site, we are attempting to answer real questions, and we would be happy to address yours. VISIT THE FEEDBACK PAGE AND WE'LL GET TO WORK FOR YOU.
