The Football Association are the governing body of football in the UK, with a vast remit ranging from grass roots to the elite end of the beautiful game. Social Media plays a key part of The FA’s engagement strategy, and working with ipadio’s VideoInPage service they have provided a unique way to put their fans right into the heart of the game.

The FA Cup ipadio Facebook app lets fans commentate on goals - winners get tickets to The FA Cup Final. Commentaries are being judged by ESPN's John Champion.

Charlie Boss, FA Cup Marketing Manager for The FA said, "ipadio's VideoInPage service is one of the simplest and most engaging journeys for user generated content we’ve seen in a long time.”

Mark Smith, ipadio CEO notes that, “ipadio strives to make the task of getting rich content online as simple as possible, so while our audio products make podcasting no more complex than making a phone call, VideoInPage is that same principle applied to video. This takes away the barriers to upload and allows organisations to easily place their people in the centre of their online presence.”

ipadio’s VideoInPage (VIP) service allows organizations and brands to collect user generated video from their stakeholders with no more complexity that pressing ‘record’. The VIP service works by detecting the presence of a camera and allows the user to record directly into the webpage. This video can then be moderated (or not!), embedded into your website or intranet, cross posted into other sites (eg. Facebook, YouTube), and automatically alerted to registered viewers.

The VIP service is white labelled, a key feature for corporate users, so they can brand their video with their logo, their messages, moderate and control where the video ends up. It’s these features that resonate with corporates – ipadio’s VIP provides them with the means of socializing their organisations – spreading audio and video content around their networks – but with the necessary control and brand protection.

Also, because VIP is cloud based and doesn’t rely on expensive camera crews and post production (brand elements, intros and outros are all applied automatically) the costs are significantly lower than typical in-house video production.

As with all ipadio services, VIP is provided as Software as a Service – set up times are minimal and the recorder and resultant videos are typically embedded inside the customer’s websites or intranets.
