International brand, adidas, picks up new communication and marketing technology via Hamilton firm
adidas New Zealand will be showing off one of the latest international innovations in marketing technology to it's head office in Germany thanks to a Hamilton company.
Print House in Hamilton is the distributor of integrated multi media technology that allows ultra thin video screens to be placed in a range of situations to 'show-and-tell' about a product and attract the attention of customers.
The system can incorporate a stand-alone video screen and player within a page of a book, but in the case of adidas New Zealand the technology is being used in point-of-sale display stands.
Retail and trade marketing manager for adidas New Zealand, Sarah Satterthwaite, says the compactness of the technology and the impact it makes with potential customers means it is ideally suited to adidas' new miCoach SPEED_CELL product.

miCoach SPEED_CELL is a device that fits inside an adidas sports shoe or boot which records downloadable data so that the wearer can track their performance and compete again other miCoach SPEED_CELL wearers on-line.
"We have the Video-in-Print® (ViP) currently operating in display stands at 14 stores in New Zealand with plans to increase this to 22 stores by the end of 2012.
Stores that are currently displaying the technology include adidas stores, specialist football shops, selected Stirling Sports and Rebel Sports.
"We have had great success with the technology in our Newmarket store in particular, with the store reporting that many of its sales are directly attributable to how the miCoach SPEED_CELL product can be seen on screen.
"Because many of our potential customers will have seen this product on-line, the way we can then follow up that exposure in stores with this moving image technology is ideal," says Sarah Satterthwaite.
She says the technology is a perfect marketing solution for the miCoach SPEED_CELL and she is hopeful that adidas head office in Germany may even pick up the technology once it sees how it has been used in New Zealand.
The ViP innovation was developed by U.S. company Americhip® and is already in use in many parts of the world. Hamilton's Print House has the distribution rights for New Zealand.
CEO of Print House Brett Phillips says it has been a boost for the marketing technology that such a massive international brand such as adidas has picked up the video in print devices.
"I've found that once companies see the potential for this technology as an integrated communication and marketing tool they become pretty enthusiastic quite quickly. It is also very satisfying to know that this is something that is generating sales, because at the end of the day that is what it is supposed to do," he says.
Features of ViP are that it allows various chapters of video to be played, it can be activated through sensor movement and it can be presented physically in a way that fits with the sophistication of products.
Sarah Satterthwaite says with an increasing crowded media market where people's attention is constantly being sought, a multi media device like ViP that is slick and relevant can be very powerful.
"We've found through selling our products in large stores that there is lots of competition for attention. The layout of modern stores also means that ideally marketing materials need to be compact and free standing. Video-in-Print® has delivered us a solution which meets all of these requirements."
