New Balance to Brandlive Broadcast Launch of Its Latest Running Shoe

Live Interactive Video Drives Simultaneous In-Store Shopping Experience and Online Ecommerce Conversions

PORTLAND, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/14 -- Brandlive, a real-time online video + social + commerce platform for brands to showcase products, engage customers and spark sales, today announced New Balance as its latest customer. The footwear manufacturer and its retail partners are harnessing the power of live interactive product demonstrations with a series of online and in-store video events running August 11-14.

The four-day campaign will debut version four of New Balance's popular 880 shoe line to employees and the retail channel, and culminates in a nationwide online and in-store customer Brandlive on August 14 at 7 p.m. EDT.

This omnichannel initiative will feature special sales demonstrations broadcast online and to approximately 50 running and sporting apparel retail stores across the U.S. In-store and online shoppers will connect via video kiosks or any standard web browser to a video feed from New Balance's Boston headquarters, where product experts Kevin Adams, Keith Kelly and Claire Wood will be on hand to showcase the latest 880 features and answer questions sent in via online messaging. The integrated video, chat, social feeds and ecommerce will be powered by Brandlive.

"Brandlive's online video and social platform gives our omnichannel marketing a powerful and consistent means of visually connecting with fans and customers, bridging the gap between in-store and online," said Tom Taylor, New Balance Spokesperson. "I can't think of a better way for us to tell the fantastic story of the new 880."

New Balance will also use the Brandlive platform on August 11-12 to conduct field rep training sessions, acquainting them with key product specs and the New Balance brand message.

"We're extremely excited to see the way New Balance is using our platform to combine both in-store and online conversations into a single engaging event," said Fritz Brumder, CEO and co-founder of Brandlive. "We've been privileged to work with a who's-who of brands to help each better connect with customers online, driving both engagement and sales conversions, but New Balance is adding a unique live retail component to leverage the best of both in-store and online."

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
