When you create a video in the SundaySky Video Platform, you can either create one version that all your viewers will see or personalize the video so that viewers will see a version that is customized especially for them. Personalization can take many forms, from addressing viewers by their first name to displaying messages to viewers according to a segment to which they belong. Following are the two methods of personalization that SundaySky supports:

Using a Personalization Token

When you use a personalization token, the token represents data that is passed to SundaySky for each viewer. The token, created with a data field, is populated with actual data passed to SundaySky when the video is rendered for the viewer.
You can personalize the on-screen text, the voice-over, or even show each viewer a unique media asset according to the URL in the data record that you provide to SundaySky.
Below is one example of personalization with a token:


Audience Messaging

In audience messaging, the video is personalized for a specific audience according to a value that exists in the source data record that you provide to SundaySky.

For example:
1. You create a data field named Age Group, with the following values: Gen Y, Gen Z, Boomer, Senior.
2. You add one of the above values to each data record according to the viewer's age.
3. When creating the video, you configure messages or voice-overs that are specific to each one of these age segments.
4. Videos sent to viewers belonging to a specific age segment will be personalized according to the relevant age group.


In order to enable this personalization, you need to connect the data that exists in your company to the video that you are creating.
