Independent full-service agency Awaken has delivered a new TV campaign first for global high end audio equipment company Technics, showcasing the iconic brand’s cross generational contribution to music through the years and encouraging people to explore its range of products and add Technics to their consideration list.
In the campaign, Awaken showcases the evolution of Technics through the ages, from the ‘70s when the company launched its first deck, to now. The campaign demonstrates Technics as a pioneer in the Australian music and audio industry and the impact it has had through the generations.
The TVC follows the musical journey of a woman through her life. From a preteen in the ‘70s opening her first vinyl record, to DJing at a house party using the iconic SL-1200s in the ‘80s, listening to her portable CD player through Technics’ headphones in the ‘90s suburbs, to a cool grandma in modern times listening to her Technics earbuds and gifting a vinyl to her granddaughter for the first time.
They sit down at a turntable, where viewers can see the latest in Technics deck technology and speaker systems available today. She shows her granddaughter how to turn on the turntable and they enjoy the music together. The final scene is of them dancing in the lounge to the music, with the logo “Rediscover Music. Technics” and words “Play Forever.”
Aaron Waters, product marketing manager - Technics at Panasonic Australia, said: "We understand that the listening experience is not purely about technology but the magical and emotional relationship between people and music. We want people to experience our products for generations with our timeless design that stays true to the clean, stylish lines of our traditional Technics products, whilst also delivering superior acoustic technology."
Awaken founder and CEO, Chris Parker, said: “Technics has been a staple in the Australian market for decades and continues to be a pioneer in audio with quality products and good design aesthetics. The objective of this campaign for Awaken was to boost awareness around the range of products available, to attract new people to this iconic brand while also appealing to its loyal fan base.
“The outcome was incredible. The way the TVC utilises music to showcase the journey of Technics through the ages, and how it has supported generations in their love of music since the launch of their first deck is really something. It draws on the nostalgia of viewers and Technics fans, encouraging them to pass their love of the brand, and music, onto the next generation.” Awaken also developed the media plan ensuring the objectives of brand awareness and consideration through various channels were met.
The campaign features across BVOD, YouTube and Facebook to carry the story and put Technics in the forefront of people’s minds again, cementing its place as an iconic band.
