Sony’s Marketing Techniques Get Unique

Monday, July 11th, 2011

With what seems to be somewhat of an over saturated market for tablets, Sony is preparing consumers for their version of the popular, portable electronics device coming out in Q4 with ominous commercials.  Sony is no stranger to unique advertisements, but one has to ask; when does unique advertising become too, “flashy”?

In early June, Sony released a commercial ominously introducing their tablet.  I was intrigued by the single-shot, “Mouse Trap” look-a-like and even was hypnotized by machine’s every move.  I like it.  I was interested in what Sony had to bring to the table.  Watch below.

The ominous commercial was interesting as a stand alone, however Sony released what is now dubbed the “Second Episode” of their initial release. With the arrival of the “Second Episode”, there will apparently be three more, completing a five part series.

Will consumers be lured by this marketing technique, or will Sony end up finally releasing their tablet to the world, only to have consumers give them a collective sigh of boredom? Only time will tell.

Super Bowl Ads

Monday, February 7th, 2011

Last night was the big Super Bowl.  However, year after year, advertisements during the big game get about as much attention as the game itself. YouTube has a channel right now called AdBlitz showcasing all the ads from last night.  What were your favorite?  Being a comic book fan, one of my favorites was seeing the first trailer for the movie Captain America: the First Avenger.

Blu-ray Players are for Everyone….

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

The September 2009 issue of Sound and Vision Magazine compared three Blu-ray players, all under $300. The great thing about them, they come with quite a few features that most people wouldn’t expect from a less-expensive Blu-ray player.

Blu-ray Live has expanded over the past few months bringing users more streaming and gaming opportunities. According to Sound and Vision, Blu-ray players have become media-streaming dynamos. Now they stream Netflix, CinemaNow, YouTube, and Pandora. Blu-ray, according to the magazine has really become an entertainment hub.

The three Blu-rays that were featured—the LG BD370, Panasonic DMP-BD60, and Samsung BD-P1600—all boast the features that any Blu-ray owner would look for at any price point.

Each player had advantages. Tim Steward, in the internet sales department, believes that a lot of people look for the quickest load time in a Blu-ray machine. That’s why he prefers the LG model.

Blu-rays are the first step into the future, according to Tim, they play the highest resolution movies and are moving away from actual discs altogether. He pointed out that by doing a direct download from Netflix we will one day not need discs at all.
