Our Site Explained
Adding Content (Articles)
Registered Users, Trade Partners and IOV Members will be able to add content to various sections according to their level of access. For instance, Registered Users can add items to the 'Sales & Wants' section (see Sales & Wants section for charges), but only IOV Members can add or reply to the Knowledge Base Forms. Trade Partners can add news items to 'IOV News Stream' - but not post an item to 'Local Meetings' - and so on.
Notes on how to edit your account details (Website Options), Subscribe to receive automatic emails, add a New Article, and special notes for Trade Partners, are contained in the following READ ME files:

The 'Public Information' area of this site is freely available to those who are looking for information on commissioning a video. The 'Find a Videographer' facility enables you to search our list of Fully Accredited IOV Members - as well as providing 'Guides' on the commissioning process.
A full list of benefits of IOV Membership, and the facility to join on-line today, can be found in the 'Join the IOV' section. Additional information can be found within the 'About Us' section - including our Aims and Objectives and a brief history of the IOV.
Anyone with an interest in professional videography can register for the 'Trade & Industry' zone. This is FREE and only requires an active email address to start to benefit from additional site features. The Trade & Industry section includes: IOV News Stream, Trade Directory, Sales & Wants, Local Meetings Notice Boards and details on other IOV events.
As a Registered User you will be able to select to receive automatic e-mails when new content is posted within any of these sections (either instantly - or in a collective overnight email). For instance, when another user posts an item in Sales & Wants, you can select to receive an email notifying you.
There is also a subscription-based access for suppliers to the industry (Trade Subscribers) which includes all companies listed in our 'Trade Directory'. Our Trade Subscribers have the ability to freely post news releases to the IOV News Stream service. This subscription also includes a listing in the IOV's monthly publication - 'Focus'.
Full details on how to become a Trade Subscriber, plus the lastest advertising rates for Focus Magazine and this website can be found within our 'Marketing Information Pack'.
'Members Zone' is restricted to members of the IOV. It includes the means for members to contact and network with each other, a directory of sample documents and contracts, video-related reference information - and many more features that enable members to make the most out of their IOV membership.
This section also incorporates the 'Knowledge Base Forums', where members can post questions to the entire membership - with replies being stored in a searchable forum for all members to see. There are three specialist forum areas - Business, Technical, Creative, Corporate Video, Wedding & Event Videography, Special Interest Video and Independent Film Makers.
