Case Studies
Discover how our clients creatively use mobile video ethnography in research.

From R&D departments in mammoth technology, consumer goods, or food and beverage companies, to marketing arms of big box retailers, health and beauty or apparel corporations, to global advertising agencies, to freelance researchers, our mobile video ethnography has been employed in countless different ways.

Body language, tone of voice and context all come into play upon gleaning insight from the videos garnered.
