Phil Ling, editor-in-chief of Enginuity Europe is planning a mini-documentary about Wearable Technology that aims to follow in the footsteps of the Smart Home documentary that the publication produced earlier this year.

The video will be aimed at design engineers within OEMs that are developing products for the Wearable sector. Up to six companies who are actively developing semiconductor solutions targeting the wearables market can participate in the project, although Phil is keen to make sure that spokespeople will be able to offer good insights into the needs of this rapidly emerging sector. He’s particularly looking for companies in areas such as Sensors, Processors/MCUs, RF, Power and Battery Management, User Interfaces, Operating Systems and, if applicable, Cloud-Based Technologies.

The format for the mini-documentary will be a 15 to 20 minute video featuring edited excerpts of one-to-one interviews with each participant, conducted over a Skype video call. The final mini-documentary will also be published on Enginuity Europe and its Social Media channels including YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

Although there is no charge for participation in the mini-documentary, Enginuity Europe will also be able to produce a standalone video based on each interview conducted for a fixed-fee of £950. Interviews generally last around 30 minutes but the videos are edited down to around 15 minutes: check out Enginuity’s interviews on YouTube for examples of this format.

Interviews will be completed by the middle of November and the closing date for participant confirmation will be around November 10th. The mini-documentary (and all standalone videos) will be completed and published by early December.
