By April 5, 2016 July 21st, 2016 Company News

(INDIANAPOLIS – April 5, 2016) BLASTmedia, a national public relations agency, has been selected by ZEISS, an international leader in the fields of optics and optoelectronics, to lead the PR and content marketing strategy for its ZEISS Multimedia Devices group in 2016. Bringing optical solutions to both the enterprise and consumer segments for more than a century, ZEISS is looking to BLASTmedia to promote its new position within the virtual reality space, focusing specifically on its VR One line of products.

“ZEISS exhibits constant innovation and has a strong reputation of both entering, and becoming a leader in, new markets,” said Kelly Hendricks, CEO of BLASTmedia. “We are proud to be representing this line of virtual reality products that will no doubt deliver the quality that people worldwide have come to expect from ZEISS.”

BLASTmedia began its partnership with ZEISS at CES 2016, where the agency showcased the VR One to the media, as well as its new integration with drone apps and manufacturers. Looking into Q2 and beyond, BLASTmedia will execute media relations and content marketing strategies surrounding modern applications for virtual reality, NAB and E3 trade shows, and new drone integrations.

“We knew that virtual reality was going to be a crowded market at CES 2016 and, without the support of BLASTmedia, we would have had a difficult time breaking through the noise,” said Dave Hodgson, Business Development Manager North America, ZEISS Multimedia Devices. “After a strong media presence at the show, we were confident that BLASTmedia understood our space and had the media relationships we needed to keep the momentum going in 2016.”

BLASTmedia’s decade of experience includes media relations, content marketing and social media strategy for both consumer and enterprise clients. For more information about BLASTmedia and its capabilities, visit http://blastmedia.com.
