Gopro case study

  1. 1. GoPro Hero 5 Case Study Liam White
  2. 2. Brief History Founded in 2002 by Nicholas Woodman, GoPro is the maker and creator of the world’s most versatile camera. Enabling its users to capture and share their most passionate, exciting moments in professional high-definition videography and photography. Capitalizing on traditional advertising, content marketing, and social media, GoPro built a ritualistic fan base in sports enthusiasts, professional athletes, and media production professionals. GoPro’s professional line of wearable and gear mountable cameras are used more collectively compared to any other camera in the market today making it one of the most innovative and successful cameras in the world.
  3. 3. Brief History In 2002, Nicholas Woodman created the idea of the wearable camera. The evolution occurred when the camera was moved from the wrist to an apparatus that can be attached to any device. GoPro became the first company that solved the issue of how do you captured images and video when people are in their moments of excitement; where it is just too inconvenient to hold the camera or a phone. The first GoPro was introduced to the market in 2004 along with the first digital GoPro in 2005. Since then, The GoPro camera has evolved from HD Hero to HD Hero 3+ and HD Hero 3+ Black Edition and Hero 4 silver and black. The new HD Hero 4 black edition include key competitive features such as 4K ultra high definition resolution, shooting 12MP photos at 60 frames per second video. It has a super wide angled lens that operates efficiently in low light mode and has built in Wi-Fi with remote. The lightweight and design of the HD Hero 4 makes it easy to take anywhere. The camera interphase is simple for the user to negotiate. Attachments are versatile and customizable and free editing software is provided by GoPro for those who want to edit their media footage. The new GoPro creates opportunities in brand new markets and consumer sectors outside the realm of only sports.
  4. 4. Rival Products Sony Action Cam The Sony Action Cam is a cylinder, lightweight, rough-and-tumble, wearable camera for recording various adventures. It can shoot video at up to 1080p at 60 frames per second (or 720p at 120fps), and at a bitrate of up to 50Mbps. General Usability Sony's menu system is just a bit more intuitively laid out than GoPro's, and it's way easier to navigate because Sony has two navigation buttons (up and down) to the GoPro's one. That makes a pretty big difference. Unfortunately, the advantages end there.
  5. 5. Rival Products Sony Action Cam General Usability The record button on the Sony is much tougher to press than it is on the GoPro. And because the recording indicator light is on top of the camera, if you're looking at the Sony straight on (which you will be if you're surfing, or doing anything where it's pointed back at you), it is impossible to tell whether it's rolling. Even if you can get a top-down view, the light is so dim that you can't tell if it's on or not in daylight (even on an overcast day!), and Sony's record sound is too quiet to be heard through the waterproof case in most environments.
  6. 6. Rival Products Sony Action Cam Image Quality Sony has the option of a couple different color modes, but the default is Vivid, which is what we used for our testing. The Sony really saturates colors a lot and skews pretty cool, which makes the blues in the sky pop. prefer the slightly warmer GoPro, which looks a little more natural, but ultimately, it boils down to personal preference, and you may gravitate toward vibrancy.
  7. 7. Pre-Production Week Number Activity Week 1 Produce Pre-production and case study on GoPro Week 2 Look at GoPro print adverts and make my own Week 3 Create Web and Bus Ads Week 4 Create TV Advert Week 5 Evaluate Product Week 6 Pitch Product
  8. 8. Advertising My goal is to present the action camera as an easy, operable, portable device that can be carried and utilized similar to a smart phone. This will eliminate a major consumer problem of carrying too many image capturing devices while traveling. Advertising efforts will be directed towards disseminating the message, “this is your life, join the fun...GoPro” along with more travel based content. In the past, celebrity endorsements have been utilized to advertise and market GoPro products with success. Celebrities such as pro race car driver Ken block, pro surfer Kelly Slater, and pro snowboarder Shaun White has built a brand culture with great followings. I plan to showcase the GoPro Hero 5 at extreme sports events.
