NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hi5 Practice announced today the launch of its new video production device, OLIVE. Short for On Location Interactive Video Experience, OLIVE is the health care industry’s first remote access video device that includes a built-in high-definition video camera, microphone, speakers for two-way communication, lighting, and teleprompter into one portable recording device. OLIVE allows clinicians to collaborate remotely with Hi5 Practice’s videography team, in real time, to create dynamic practice videos.
"The inspiration for developing OLIVE was to take the intimidation factor out of recording video," said Kevin Barnett, CEO of Hi5 Practice and OLIVE inventor. "For most of our clients, the idea of getting in front of a camera and film crew is daunting. I wanted to create a new experience for them that not only makes them feel confident about video production, but gets them excited about creating personalized messages for their patients."
Clients can book OLIVE for specific video marketing campaigns with Hi5 Practice, and can have OLIVE shipped to their office for filming. The device consists of two parts – the stand and the camera interface. When the client receives the shipment, they are provided with a set of simple instructions for assembly and activation. Once activated, users will be remotely linked to the Hi5 Practice videography team in Nashville, Tenn., where a producer can utilize the microphone and speaker to instruct the client how to position the unit, or themselves, within the frame.
Using a built-in remote access teleprompter screen, customers can read their scripts without memorizing lines. In addition to OLIVE’s main features, each shipment will include a handheld 4K camera with stabilization gimbal to capture staff/patient interactive footage for more dynamic videos. Once filming is complete, the customer ships the device back to Hi5 Practice, using the included shipping label, where the footage will be edited into videos.
“Maintaining patient relationships is crucial for practice growth,” said Barnett. “With OLIVE, medical professionals can humanize the doctor/patient experience through personalized videos ranging from welcome messages and service spotlight, to treatment plan follow up and special occasion greetings. They can utilize these videos through various marketing channels including websites, social media, online listings, and patient retention software.”
OLIVE services are anticipated to be available for interested health care customers by late December 2017. For more information on OLIVE or to request a demo, visit hi5practice.com/OLIVE or call 615-656-8551.
