HomeZada Launches Home Inventory Video Recognition AI
Automatically Detect Inventory Items in Videos for Home Insurance Purposes SACRAMENTO, CALIF. (DECEMBER 05, 2018)--HomeZada has launched a home inventory video recognition AI set of features within its digital home management platform.The inventory video recognition dramatically speeds up the process of creating a home inventory for insurance purposes. Every home insurance company strongly recommends homeowners create a home inventory and HomeZada's inventory recognition technology makes this process very fast and easy. HomeZada's platform enables homeowners to use the mobile app to record and upload videos of each room and the exterior spaces of their property. The videos are then processed through video recognition AI to automatically detect the inventory items and present the results. The homeowner makes final confirmation of the inventory items and updates their list of items for that space. "Most homeowners do not have a home inventory and thus are probably under-insured and at significant risk of not being properly reimbursed if disaster strikes," said Elizabeth Dodson, a co-founder of HomeZada. "Unfortunately, we have witnessed a number of large-scale disasters recently such as wildfires, hurricanes, floods, etc. where people lose their homes, so we are excited to provide this inventory video recognition technology to solve these problems for homeowners." HomeZada's detects both personal property objects such as furniture, electronics, collectibles and decorative items in the home as well as fixed asset items such as appliances, fixtures, equipment and building materials. This is important because a home insurance policy has both a personal property amount of coverage, and a separate dwelling coverage to rebuild the home if necessary. HomeZada's home inventory app provides consumers with different methods of creating a home inventory. Some people want a high level of accuracy, so the platform supports itemizing your inventory and taking individual photos of each inventory item in the home. The latest version is for consumers who prefer speed in the process by quickly taking 10 to 15 videos of each room in the home and processing that through the new inventory video recognition technology. "Having videos stored in HomeZada provides consumers with peace of mind in case they need to file an insurance claim, especially if they lose or change their phones and the original video is lost," said Elizabeth. "We really want to enable homeowners to be better prepared with our platform because all indications are that unfortunately, these disasters that damage and destroy homes will continue." View more information about HomeZada's new inventory video recognition technology here: About HomeZada HomeZada is a Digital Home Management platform that empowers consumers to manage their largest financial asset, their home. The online and mobile solution combines apps, content, and data to help homeowner's mange a home inventory, a home maintenance schedule, home improvement projects and home finances.

Matterport Surpasses 70 Million Global Visits and Celebrates Explosive Growth of 3D and Virtual Reality Spaces
SUNNYVALE, CA--(September 20, 2016) - Immersive media technology company Matterport today announced a series of milestones that reflect the company's tremendous growth since the 2014 launch of its end-to-end immersive media platform. Customers across industries such as residential and commercial real estate, apartment rentals, vacation rentals, hotels, business listings, event venues, architecture, construction, and entertainment and news media are creating over 22,000 new Matterport Spaces each month. Matterport Spaces are complete digital representations of a real-world environment. To date, there are a total of 300,000 Spaces. The numbers of Spaces created per month has nearly tripled in the last year. In addition, visits to these Spaces has doubled since March to over seventy million visits, and is now growing at almost two million additional visits per week. In May 2016, in response to strong demand overseas, the company expanded internationally, announcing local availability in Australia, Canada, and the UK. In July, the company acquired Virtual Walkthrough, a London-based company specializing in virtual tours for residential and commercial property. Matterport now has customers in more than seventy countries, with the international market accounting for more than twenty five percent of the company's revenues. According to a Matterport customer survey fielded in August 2016, eighty-eight percent of customers stated that Matterport helps them to build a stronger brand in the marketplace, seventy-eight percent stated that they are more competitive because of Matterport, and seventy percent (n = 204) commented that they win more business because of Matterport. "We are witnessing a revolution with immersive media, and Matterport's technology is leading the way, transforming the way people interact with and understand real world spaces," said Bill Brown, CEO of Matterport. "The volume of immersive 3D content created by our customers is unparalleled, and we've been excited by the myriad of industries leveraging 3D and VR content today to fuel their businesses." Real estate professionals have been early adopters of immersive media. Matterport's technology has been credited with fundamentally altering the real estate buying process. Matterport is already working with agents from seven of the top ten brokerage firms including Keller Williams, Sotheby's International Realty, and ReMAX. "Matterport is changing how real estate is bought and sold, and is setting the new standard for what is expected. Their realistic digital representations have enabled the '24/7 open house,'" said Gregg Lynn, a top 1% producing agent with Sotheby's International Realty - San Francisco brokerage. "I am getting significant benefits, in terms of winning more clients and listings and offering superior results for those clients." Multifamily housing is another industry adopting immersive media. Rental community owners and managers use Matterport Spaces to engage and inform prospective renters during their online search, and have experienced significant gains resulting from Matterport. "Apartments.com added Matterport Spaces to provide renters a richer and more informed experience in their search for a new home. Renters who engage with Matterport Spaces spend 2.5 times longer on the property listing and are twice as likely to submit a lead. Ultimately, property managers benefit greatly by receiving more qualified leads," said Fred Saint, President, Apartments.com. The travel and hospitality industry has also embraced the real life visual representation that 3D and VR provide to showcase their properties to guests and corporate clients. Industry leaders such as Vacasa in the US vacation rental space, and Lodgis in the French apartment and vacation rental space, are both customers of Matterport. "We provide Matterport's 3D immersive experiences as a standard feature to our homeowners and guests at no additional cost," says Vacasa founder and CEO Eric Breon. "Transparency is a key part of our business philosophy and Matterport has helped us continue to achieve that, making us the first in our industry to offer this feature across our fast-growing portfolio of more than 3,900 U.S. properties." Matterport's immersive media also is being used by media and entertainment companies to make modern storytelling more immersive. The Associated Press produced the first 3D and VR story ever. Other media organizations using Matterport include The Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal. "Working with Matterport has allowed us to engage with our readers in an entirely new way by shaping an immersive experience," said Mae Cheng, publisher and editor-in-chief at Mansion Global, a Dow Jones publication. "The properties Mansion Global features come to life now, allowing readers to virtually walk down the hallways and tour the bedrooms and kitchens of their future homes." Matterport Service Providers and Community Customers can purchase their own Matterport Pro 3D Camera for use in their properties and spaces, or turn to a Matterport Service Provider (MSP) for scanning services. The MSP Network represents photographers and entrepreneurs who have built businesses around scanning real-world spaces. "I've built a business around my Matterport camera, with clients in the real estate, hospitality, retail, and art industries. It is clear that VR is the future, and Matterport's 3D immersive media platform has paved the way for many of us to create companies that provide unique services for our increasingly digital and visual world," said Diego Orofino, Founder of RealVirtualZone." The Matterport MSP network is now over 1,200 strong, represented in all 50 states and over 64 countries.

RealBiz Unveils New Programs and Video Enhancements
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL - (May 27, 2015) -- RealBiz Media Group, Inc., is pleased to announce that after several months of development, the company has rolled out key upgrades to its agent and enterprise video platforms. PowerAgent now includes a unique lead generation program for its agents. A member of PowerAgent can select a property they want to feature by clicking the Promote a Listing button, enter the amount they want to spend and the feature is automatically enabled. Initial testing results indicate that for as little as $200, an agent will generate between 50 and 100 genuine leads for their property on sale. Of key note is the favorable pricing structure offered by Promote a Listing as agents within the industry commonly pay other services between $20 and $65 per lead. The "Promote a Listing" platform delivers exclusive leads at a fraction of the typical current market rate. While this upgrade will target the 1.4 million registered real estate agents in the U.S., of greater importance is the ability of the product to work for the roughly 800,000 agents who find themselves throughout the course of the year without a listing. The Promote a Listing platform allows these agents to select a property in their local area and promote it (in compliance with local MLS rules) so they can generate potential buyer leads. For a very affordable price, agents can now create awareness, enhance their consumer reach and potentially generate both buyers and new listing opportunities by utilizing the product. This is a significant breakthrough for the company as PowerAgent has largely completed its build and is able to deliver on the 3 L's for real estate: Listings, Leads and Loyalty. In short, PowerAgent now offers a complete ecosystem for agents with: LISTINGS - Access to millions of video listings that they can enhance through tools like the ezflix app. LEADS - Lead generation and social media awareness through Promote a Listing and ReachFactor. LOYALTY via Home & Away Club points program and the Nestbuilder Agent App. Additionally, the company is proud to report the launch of its new and improved video application which is currently being phased into its large enterprise and broker Micro Video App (MVA) accounts. The new videos incorporate many changes and improvements to the creation process of the videos to automatically integrate text overlays, animation expansion, as well as music and voice over solutions. Additionally, there are now upgrade options available for an additional cost that will allow enterprise clients the capability to produce beautiful HD videos, advertising insertion and print capabilities. These technical upgrade enhancements greatly improved the quality and the user experience of each video. "We are anticipating that we will initially add over 200 new agents utilizing Promote a Listing each month. In our first year we are targeting to have several thousand real estate agents utilizing a cross section of our products and paying monthly fees to increase their productivity." said Alex Aliksanyan RealBiz CIO/COO. About RealBiz Media Group, Inc.

RealBiz Media Group, Inc. Premier Mobile App, Ezflix, now available in iOS App Store
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Feb. 4, 2015 -- RealBiz Media Group, Inc. today announced its unique mobile platform for real estate agents and brokers, Ezflix, is now available for iOS devices through the App Store. Ezflix allows agents to create their own video content to display with listings for clients. The Ezflix platform auto-generates video for over one million listings and makes those available for agents to view and share through social media channels, over text and via email with their prospective clients and customers. The auto-generated videos are HD capable and come with a natural human voice over appended. The system also allows agents to create local content which can be shared to help elevate their digital brand. Agents with upgraded access to Ezflix have the ability to significantly enhance their listings with live video, updated photography and audio enhancements, such as personal voice overs. These advanced features allow the agent to tell his or her story about the home and neighborhood. Ezflix is a powerful tool that agents can use to set their clients' properties apart,while giving consumers unique, local information about the area of interest. The upgraded access also provides auto-generated support collateral and a number of other marketing tools, including syndication to large real estate portals, which helps promote the agent and his or her listings. Brokerage firms can also take advantage of the Ezflix app through the Broker Solution which unlocks all the Ezflix features for their agents. Additionally, it gives the broker more branding opportunities within listings and creates content players for the office. All of these benefits are supplemented by a significant organic SEO boost for the office through Ezflix's stream of rich media content that becomes a part of the broker's URL, allowing for significantly enhanced domain authority over time. Enterprise clients have much the same opportunity to leverage the power of the Ezflix platform with their agents and brokers by empowering them to not only enhance their listing inventory, and therefore sell more properties, but to employ their professional work force to create valuable local content and "crowd source" content from the community either in the form of video or still photos. Ezflix will integrate with other RealBiz platforms to allow agents to earn points for their marketing actions, enhance their customized personal client ecosystem and build customer loyalty. According to a recent survey, 90 percent of home buyers and sellers would use an agent again, yet the majority does not remember their agent's name when it comes time to buy or sell their home. The company's Home and Away Club platform addresses this by creating a customer loyalty and retention solution. The company has several pending contracts for the Ezflix app that were subject to the iOS release and now anticipates thousands of agents will begin utilizing the app this quarter. The Ezflix app can be downloaded in the App Store for iOS devices or in the Google Play Store for Android devices. For more information on Ezflix, visit http://www.realbizmedia.com.

Properties In Motion® Real Estate Listing Videos System Launches Nationwide for Firms and Sales Associates
Michael Minard, President of Delta Media Group, announced today the launch of Properties In Motion®, a comprehensive new listing video solution that raises the bar for real estate video marketing. Minard led a development team that spent months building a listing videos solution created to meet a glaring need in the industry. "Last year 86 percent of online home shoppers used property videos to learn about a specific listing. 70 percent used property videos to tour the inside of a home," said Minard. "We have spent an extensive amount of time programming to create a completely reliable turn-key solution that builds SEO value and brand recognition for real estate companies while meeting the needs of their online consumers." Delta's heavy investment in the development of Properties In Motion® has paid off in the form of a completely hands-off system for real estate firms and sales associates. Here is a brief snapshot of how Properties In Motion® works for its customers: Delta receives listing data from the Multiple Listing Service. They then create an HD quality video, which is published to the real estate professional's YouTube™ channel and optimized for search engines. Delta then embeds that YouTube™ video on the customer's desktop and mobile websites. These videos display at the top of each listing web page, above the listing images and detail information, so website visitors can't miss them. Because of Delta's industry knowledge and technical expertise in handling real estate data, the Properties In Motion® system has been built in a way that allows for seamless property data integration with no third-party involvement. The platform includes a unique algorithm that tells the system if a new video needs to be produced. This algorithm allows for automated listing download, listing updates, error-checking and automated embedding on the customer's website. On the front end, Properties In Motion® video quality is unmatched in the industry. The system includes full HD resolution support and displays properly on mobile smartphones and tablets. "Many competitive solutions do not offer multi-device support, thumbnail selection and quality music," said Minard. "Our listing videos system does." In addition to it's front-end capabilities, Properties In Motion® also brings a strong Search Engine Optimization (SEO) benefit that other competitive video solutions do not deliver, due to the way in which the videos are produced and embedded online. Minard explains how Properties In Motion® stands above from the rest when it comes to Search. "Unfortunately, not all listing videos offered by the competition are embedded properly so that SEO can work its magic and convert leads for your company," says Minard. "Delta's listing videos are built right for SEO. Our videos will help search engines find your listings when consumers search by address or neighborhood. As they do, they'll have the opportunity to connect directly with you." Because Properties In Motion® videos are directly embedded on company listing detail pages, users who search are more likely to navigate directly to company sites than to third party portals. The videos can also be shared socially via YouTube™, enhancing branding and social marketing initiatives. Jonathan Blood, Delta's Vice President, is excited about how this product launch will help the real estate industry with their marketing video strategy and branding efforts. "Delta takes something that many in real estate are already doing and ensures that their listing video strategy is executed properly," says Blood. "We have experienced video marketing and design experts who consult with real estate professionals to develop a video strategy that works for their company." The product's pricing model includes affordable tiers based on their number of listings and also can include additional a-la-carte services such as custom template design and YouTube™ channel development. Delta had launched Properties In Motion® a few months ago for several of its key customers. This soft launch proved to be a success as the platform elicited very positive feedback from the early customers on it. Cyndi Tampa Cook, Director of Marketing & eBusiness at RE/MAX DFW Associates in Dallas, saw a positive impact right away from being on the system. "Immediately after going on Properties in Motion®, we started seeing individual listings on Google's™ page one rankings," said Cook. "Because of this, it has provided a whole new level of exposure for our agents and their listings." Old Dominion Realty, of Harrisonburg, VA appreciates the value Properties In Motion® brings to their recruiting efforts. "Properties in Motion® not only helps us market our listings, but it also helps with recruiting and retaining sales associates. They love the personalized branding that comes with the videos, which serve as powerful tools for our associates to attract new listing clients," says Jessica Phillips, Marketing Director. Michael Minard is happy about this feedback and proud of his development team's efforts. "We are amazed at the fantastic response we received from our customers on Properties In Motion®," says Minard. "It feels good to have the Delta Team work hard on a product to make it the best in the industry and then see customers respond so positively. This response validates that our hard work has paid off. I truly believe we have hit a home run with Properties In Motion®." For more information about Properties In Motion®, visit www.propertiesinmotion.com.

Since the beginning of 2014 and its national rollout of its website, www.Nestbuilder.com, in combination with the advancement of its automated video product solution for agent products, the company has built the foundation for becoming a premier digital media company. RealBiz Media has partnered with leading data providers in the real estate space to provide listing data for their video centric portal NestBuilder.com.

The previously named suppliers Builder's Update (the largest database of new construction housing), and Realtor.com (utilizing their List Hub database) are powering the consumer experience on the site.

RealBiz Media Group is deploying a multi-prong strategy targeting national enterprise agreements and monthly recurring revenue subscription agreements from offices and agents.

The goal is for the office and the individual brokers to have the ability to better market themselves and their homes to a wider range of clients and prospects so that they ultimately have more listings and more home sale transactions. The recent version of our product gives the broker the added ability to insert pre/post personal cameos to their video listing which highlights the listing and company, promotes the agent, emphasizes the neighborhood/community, increases lead generation and ultimately improves agent recruitment." "Our consumer platform, nestbuilder.com, and our agent platform have been well received. We believe we have a unique product which is quickly becoming embraced by the largest firms in the industry. Each and every week we are seeing hundreds of brokers individually sign up to utilize our product and several enterprise/large-scale clients going live with our product. Over the remainder of the year, the company will be deriving revenues from enterprise clients, individual broker sign ups, premier franchise offices and advertising.

The residual nature of our revenues assures that once we reach this significant financial metric, we will be able to maintain this success. We will continue to accelerate revenues and number of users and we are confident that we will achieve 12-15 million unique monthly visitors prior to years' end. Our products provide a new and innovative option for real estate brokers that is being positively received and implemented.

VScreen Launches Automated Listing Video Platform for Brokers
  ORLANDO, FL, April 21, 2014 -- VScreen announced today the launch of ListingVideos.com, an automated and data-driven Listing Video service for real estate brokers that dynamically tells the story of all their listings via professionally animated video and graphics, serving as the new industry replacement for the expected "property slideshow" and "virtual tour." Exclusively available to brokerages, the Listing Videos program dynamically generates videos in 'real time,' automatically pulling the listing description and photos from the MLS, while adding in animated 3D graphics, professional narration and branding for the listing agent and the brokerage they represent. The innovative Listing Video's platform also leverages other consumer interest scenes within the videos, such as; estimated monthly mortgage payments, local active inventory, median listing price, and median sales price...plus community information that buyers look for like the property's corresponding school district, geographic location and walkability score. During the setup process, the broker has the ability to select which scenes they want in all of their videos, as well as include a video sponsor to help offset their monthly investment (pricing can be found on ListingVideos.com). "We built the Listing Video's platform to overcome the biggest killer of real estate video - the high cost of production and lack of scalability," said VScreen CEO Stephen Schweickart. "Following the successful launch of our last automated video portal, MarketVideos.com, it was clear to us that there was also a need for the same automated technology to be used for the mass creation of Listing Videos for brokers. This was made evident by how quickly we were able to sign up multiple launch partners, including the likes of Carolina One, Prudential Texas, and Century 21 Scheetz." The service also offers the ability to locally brand with community specific video or imagery from the broker's marketplace, as well as share on social networks and capture leads directly through the video player.

Agents can update and enhance these materials...or not. The agent decides how much they want to be involved in the marketing of their listings." "The big win for the brokerage: ensuring universal brand consistency through automation," Sajja added. The Imprev automation solution, which scales to create hundreds of thousands of projects as needed, is highly configurable in both style and functionality. "Over the last few years we have re-written our entire platform," said Renwick Congdon, CEO of Imprev. "This latest innovation allows our clients to automate the creation, publishing and distribution of any or all of our products, customized to the exact business rules of the client. No two marketing solutions will ever look the same, nor contain the same content." For the Fox & Roach implementation, each single property website is deployed to a custom, Fox & Roach web address (URL), the specific marketing materials created by the system are determined by the price and location of the listing, and every marketing piece is automatically updated whenever listing data is updated, such as a change in price or an open house date. "And if agents want to add their own personal touch, update photos, wordsmith copy, email content to prospects or post to Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Pinterest, they can do it anytime from anywhere, since the platform works on all mobile devices," Sajja explained. The Imprev automation system is designed to interface with industry standard listing data sources. For Fox & Roach, the integration is with their CoreLogic AgentAchieve CRM platform. Sajja notes that Fox & Roach selected Imprev because of its proven penchant for quality and its reputation for technology innovation. "I can attest from our experience, Imprev's reputation is well earned," Sajja said. "We're proud to be the first to implement a system that should be a game-changer for real estate marketing," Sajja said.

RealBiz Media Initiates Beta for Next Generation Microvideo App
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Dec 23, 2013) - RealBiz Media Group, Inc. announced the introduction of its upgraded Microvideo App (MVA). This enhanced agent marketing product will have several new agent tools and video products that can greatly enhance the real estate agents ability to market both their properties and them. Agents will be able to customize their MVA by selecting enhanced content such as "how to videos"; community events; discount coupons; open houses information; market, community, and service information; news feed videos; and even self-promotional videos which they may then push out to their client bases. Such unique messaging delivery systems increase agent SEO presence through video usage as well as community market authority through client and partner referrals. Customization will be done through the Companies "agent only access" website using a simple drag-and-drop process prior to emailing/social sharing their MVA. The site will also include an agent community with individual agent pages and profiles that can be customized and shared on a permission basis. "This product upgrade has several layers of personalization that will engage our agent clients as well as captivate the imaginations of their real estate clients. We are committed to providing functionality that makes such high-tech/high-touch communications readily accessible to real estate agents -- and easy for them to navigate and deploy," said Steve Marques, President & Chief Revenue Officer. "The MVA technology delivers private-labeled real estate broker branding. Agents may then personalize their own sites." During the next several weeks, the company will be beta testing the new features with real estate agents and consumers. RealBiz anticipates deploying the agent-only platform in late January with over 250,000 agents pre-populated into the system. As part of the deployment, the company will be offering agents complimentary access to the "Home & Away Club," including $500 Rewards Dollars for travel and leisure lifestyle opportunities. In conjunction with its previously announced association with I.C.E., agents may use the Rewards Dollars themselves or pass them on to the consumer. "We believe once agents try our enhanced MVA product bundled with the Home & Away Club offering, they will quickly see the benefits of the platform and adopt it as a key tool to better market both themselves and their listings," said Bill Kerby, Chief Executive Officer. "This bundled product allows all agents (even those without home listings) the ability to deliver timely and informative home information and video offerings to the consumer with the added benefit of building long-term relationships between agents and homebuyers through the Home & Away Club. We anticipate a base of 50,000 fully-engaged agents by the end of the first quarter. This would represent approximately 5 million unique visitors per month accessing our video products and services. Over the course of 2014, we expect this number to grow to 15 -20 million unique visitors per month." This product upgrade increases agents' accessibility to the power of video outreach. They may build their client bases with or without active listings and can easily target specific market segments. While video has been seen by agents as being too complicated and expensive to use in client generation, the MVA's drag-and-drop ease gives agents a host of marketing options to build relationships with past, present, and future clients. Relationship marketing tools will be expanded during Q1 2014 to include additional content distribution points including a video centric consumer experience with agent promotion capabilities. About RealBiz Media Group, Inc.

Our videographers come to your location of choice and then the footage is edited, made searchable and uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo within days. Online video is naturally viral, and when maximized effectively, our property and agent videos have the power to convert a search into a sale for any real estate professional.” “When developing this product, we wanted our clients to be able to do more than just add the usual video to their websites,” adds Jennifer Gunkel, Director of Client Relations and Social Media, at Agent Image. "In light of Google, Bing and Yahoo!'s adoption of blended search results with online videos ranking high, this is the perfect time to take advantage of this marketing strategy. We also understand that producing, editing, and uploading videos properly to multiple sites can be a time-consuming task for busy real estate agents. With Agent Image TV, we make sure that your videos are professionally produced, uploaded, tagged and optimized correctly." Agent Image TV lets real estate professionals star in their own agent videos or property listing videos. Customers simply define the details for their video and schedule a date for their shoot. The videos are then edited in a streaming video format of their choice, ready to be embedded on their website, uploaded or provided in DVD format. Videos start at $499 for 30-second videos and $799 for 60-second videos.
