Dreamforce is the largest software user group conference in the world, hosted annually by Salesforce. The theme Salesforce selected for 2018 was Trailhead, which we worked to flesh out across the experience and all creative. We scaled our services from simply providing content capturing to fully executing the Yerba Buena Theatre program.
Since 2015, Salesforce has been a unique client in that they have very specific requirements and it takes significant collaboration and coordination with a number of vendors and agencies. This is where our project management and logistical abilities really shine.
- Create a consistent brand experience from start to finish
- Deliver a flawless show with successful live demos of the Salesforce product
In order to deliver on their guaranteed 95% capture success rate, OVATION developed a minimum of two layers of software and hardware redundancy providing both isolated audio, video, and graphic source files along with combined versions for immediate editing. All presentations for these sessions were loaded into a single database that was accessed by over 40 technicians, editors, quality control team, project manager as well as the Salesforce client. This allowed for last-minute changes to seamlessly be made, not only to the presentations but also to lower thirds placed in the file during post-production. OVATION’s presentation management technology included the use of robotic cameras and remote monitoring which reduced the amount of labor needed in each room while still maintaining the highest level of production quality.
OVATION hosted all content in the cloud which allowed for virtual editing while minimizing upload/download times. Editors were available in various time zones around the world to allow for 24 hour time efficiencies. Once edited, Dreamforce was able to easily approve videos and content then quickly publish it to make it available to a larger audience.
In order to publish recordings to Salesforce’s video marketing platform provider Vidyard, OVATION developed a cloud-based service application that utilizes the Vidyard API and fully automates publishing the video as soon as they have been approved.
