Currently, the Motiview video library consists of thousands videos from around the world. And the number of videos is growing by several hundred videos every year. In the system there are optional music to go with the videos, in addition to ambient sound. There are theme based playlists (like music from the 50s, 60s and so on), developed in cooperation with a music therapist. For every new user site, we make sure that there is local video available. And if it doesn’t exist, we make one based on input from the care facility. Because we deem it important that the users can exercise while watching videos from familiar surroundings. For the same reason, we are always including access to the entire video library, because we can never know from where the users’ memories originate.

The focus of the entire Motiview system is the users, and their experience when using it. Therefore, we work closely together with the user sites. The software is easy to use, it takes only a few clicks from startup till a video is playing on the screen.
It is important for us to collaborate and support in ensuring success for the users and staff, having their needs and focus in mind. By working together, exploring opportunities and sharing lessons learned, we will help each other improve and ensure better impact.
We want to facilitate for the Motiview community to grow. That is why we are continuously building a network for key personnel to interact, share stories and ideas, and to help each other out. As we build the video library, we keep on learning from the users. For instance, early on, we learned that the videos were going a bit too fast. We got feedback that some of the users felt unwell or unsafe from the videos, and so we adjusted accordingly.
We take every piece of feedback seriously, and we always make sure that we have the end-users in mind. That is why, whenever we get telling us that this video or that sequence is boring, or that it needs to change in any way, we investigate whether the feedback is coming from the end-users or the people around them. Both can be important, but we will always prioritise the end-users’ experiences.
This is also why we don’t give in to the temptation to use high tech features, like VR glasses, too much interaction in the videos, and so on. There is a lot of cool and fancy technology out there, and some of it has the potential to be useful in this context as well. But we will never sacrifice usability or quality of the user experience for tech-savviness. We simply need high quality video that moves along steadily, gives an immersive experience, and feels safe.
