Parry Sound Area Digital Showcase
The Parry Sound Area Digital Showcase is a Fund Raiser Project for Belvedere Heights Home in Parry Sound
The Parry Sound Area Digital Showcase is a series contained on one DVD. The main attraction is a multimedia slide show displaying high definition images of various locations and attractions in the area. Photographs include everything from aerial views, street views, places, landmarks to scenery, colourful flowers, inland lakes and of course, Georgian Bay itself!
There will be no less than 300 photographs displayed with appropriate music and fitting sound effects. Each of the photographs can be set as wallpaper for the desktop and this product also includes a screen saver installation. Screen savers provide a source of privacy and entertainment.
Most of the images in this product will be available for printing and can be used as stock photography for third party web sites and printed material. The DVD will contain respective high definition properties for quality printing.
Area photographers have been invited to submit images and this will result in a great variety of shots and photographer ingenuity!
Following on the heals of success of the Parry Sound Victory School Commemorative Project, we will be utilizing the same DVD duplicating and labeling company. The DVD's will be professionally labelled and packaged in a slim single DVD case, also labelled for best marketing results.
Contributing photographers will be credited on the packaging and on a companion web site. The product will be marketed as an area resident's keepsake, but also as a gift idea and as a tourism product.
We anticipate retail distribution through a small number of retail stores in the area, as well as through a network of Belvedere volunteers. It is hoped that an online presence will help to promote and render sales as well.
The marketing concept is going to be focused on the product being a "digital showcase". Terms "postcard" and "screensaver" are out-dated. The showcase is going to have no less than 300 photos. We will be promoting the product as a multimedia slideshow, also featuring desktop wallpaper, some photos accessible for printing for personal and non-profit use. A screensaver can still be marketed as a privacy tool and an entertainment source.
We will be inviting area retailers to take part by joining our retail network. It is anticipated the product will retail between 15.99 to 19.99 at this time.
Contributing photographers can choose not to have their images accessible for printing and for obvious good reasons. Many of the photos available for printing will be deemed to be free to use by the public for non-profit interests with permission from McCann & Cambrian E-Media Services (MCEMS). Permission is not required for personal use. Such images are being made available from MCEMS stock.
We are aiming for a June 2017 release.
