3M to launch new version of 3MTM Visual Attention Service at MRMW Conference

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

3M, a global innovation company that captures the spark of new ideas and transforms them into thousands of ingenious product, launches new version of 3MTM Visual Attention Service to help marketers optimize their content so it gets noticed 

ST. PAUL, Minn. – Diversified technology company 3M will launch 3MTM Visual Attention Service (VAS) version 5.0 along with a new website (www.3M.com/vas) at the Market Research in the Mobile World North America Conference July 16-18.

Bill Smyth, 3M Global Business Manager, describes the challenge facing brand owners in today’s cluttered marketplace, “What are people going to pay attention to when they first view a scene? If they look down the aisle, are they going to see your product, or are they going to see your competitor’s product?”

VAS is a cloud-based tool that helps marketers optimize their marketing content so it gets noticed. Run any layout, store planogram or package design through VAS and it will show you what is most visually impactful. Then you can tweak and test to get the impact you’re looking for.

New with this version of VAS is Visual Elements, a powerful analysis tool that provides detailed guidance for maximizing visual impact using key elements such as intensity, contrast, edges and faces. Also launching is VAS for Video, which brings the power of VAS analysis to video content.

VAS has grown out of 3M’s long history in vision science research, which began with a desire to improve the visibility of reflective materials. Now, VAS has emerged to enable marketers to more effectively capture a consumer's attention in a variety of settings and applications.

This VAS launch is in conjunction with 3M’s Silver Sponsorship of the MRMW North America edition taking place July 16-18 in Minneapolis, MN, USA. Dawn Cunningham, Global Chief Insights Officer at 3M, will be speaking at the conference. “We’re delighted to be supporting this prestigious mobile research event which is the longest running in the industry.  Together with other expert panelists, I am tasked to identify the next ‘killer’ app for market research. I’m eagerly looking forward to share my ideas with peers at this exciting event,” said Cunningham.
