Videogram launches Self Service Dashboard in Beta for Video Publishers.

Videogram was previously available only to selected brands like Fox Pictures, Sony Pictures, Showtime, NBC, CBS, Turner Broadcasting, Yash Raj Films, Capitol Records, and Vevo to name a few of the 30 global brands that have used the service.  Now any video publisher can sign up without a credit card and start using videogram to vastly improve click-through  and engagement with videos. Video publishers can on-board from the link below:

Videogram Self Service Sign-Up

You can use Videogram’s paid service for free. Your video will still play and monetize as it does today. You can place your own ads in a videogram. You can put the videogram on your website, in Twitter, or in Apps. You can even serve the videogram from ad servers into banner ad units. You can use our A/B test system to see the results for yourself of videogram over the simple single frame representation of video.

We are providing 3,500 free credits as part of this launch campaign to use the ad-free version of Videogram. Publishers can create a videogram out of  YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Ooyala*, Kaltura*, or Brightcove* videos.

Creating a videogram is a one-time, one-step process. Copy any video url link and paste it in the dashboard and the system will auto generate a videogram in under 3-5 Min.

Videogram is compatible with any video server / player and leaves the original video undisturbed. The video is streamed and hosted from your existing provider, so there is no interference with copyright or existing monetization. The technology is completely embeddable. Videogram can live on publisher / brand web pages, within apps, or on social networks. You can carry the videogram embed code to your landing sites and/or app.

The ad-free version means that we won’t display any of our ads, but you can display your own. Display ads can be placed on certain frames via the dashboard. In the example below, the last frame of the movie trailer is being replaced with an ad that has a call to action to open the fandango.com site and provide for a one click buy.

Shown below is the videogram embed that can be used instead of a typical youtube embed. In this example, clicking on the ad frame takes you to the fandango site and clicking anywhere else on the videogram will play the video from that frame. Publishers can choose to open the ad in new window as well.

 

Below is a twitter videogram card. In this example, the ad is carried forward into the twitter card and can be clicked to go to the fandango site. Tweets can also be embedded onto mobile sites/apps. Videogram is interactive as seen below.

Videogram can also be served via Google Adsense in any banner size using Google Doubleclick for Publishers . For more information on the videogram as an ad unit click here.

(sample banner size show below is served via Adsense).

Publishers can A/B test videogram embed vs the typical single frame embed  of YouTube, Vimeo, etc  and see for themselves how the videogram boosts discovery and engagement of their videos. If you are interested in A/B testing, please email publisher@videogram.com
