A new generation of tester…

Verigy, an Advantest Group company, is at Semicon West this week with its new V93000 Smart Scale Test Platform. The company manufactures advanced semiconductor test systems and solutions used by leading companies around the world. We at Tam Communications were pleased to be tapped by Verigy to help with this exciting product announcement.

The project involved shooting in Cupertino at the corporate headquarters and in Germany at the company’s facility outside Stuttgart. Traveling to Germany, shooting and traveling home in less than a week was exhausting but necessary to meet a rigid schedule to be ready for the launch and product training. In addition, as I travelled east, one of the people we wanted to interview for the project was headed west. That meant, Tam and Regan head to head to cover the Cupertino production along with Grip/Gaffer Thomas Norres.

Back home, we dove into post-production including creating 3D animation and effects by Aaron Dingman and Mike Baxter respectively. Tam spent long hours in the edit suite compiling the program including adding in Alan Varner’s voice over.

Since Verigy’s customer base is international, we needed to take that into account in pacing. It’s always a challenge – to make it fast cut and upbeat but also palatable to an audience where English is a second language. The video is not only playing back in the Verigy booth but is also being used on the company’s website and will be used in one-on-one presentations.

This is the third project we’ve produced for Verigy in the past few years.
