Dick’s Sporting Goods teamed up with Viget to create a site that would not only promote their 2014 Baseball Campaign, but would also serve as an enticing in-store display.
The Concept

The first challenge was to come up with at concept that could translate from a 3.5” iPhone to a 42” touchscreen display. The solution: an all-video interactive site that would let users enjoy a player's-eye-view of the game, and then explore and purchase the video’s featured products.

The Production

At the core of the site was full screen video footage that needed load fast and scale to a wide variety of sizes.

Using CSS transforms, Viget was able to not only scale videos but also set the origin property to always position the subject into view. All while whittling down the CSS files size to 12k.
For each position, at the play’s decisive moment, the video would slow down, and interactive “hot spots” would appear over the player’s gear. Clicking on a hot spot would pause the video and open a product view with a detailed description and a link to the main e-commerce site.
A menu screen would let users navigate between positions outside of the video loop.
Functionality on mobile was another challenge. Mobile phones can only play video in the device’s native player application, preventing the display of interactive hot spots. The solution was to design a separate interface for mobile that retained the spirit of the desktop concept.
For added cool factor Viget also developed a countdown timer that displays with a “flip-clock” effect all built in CSS, by 3D-translating four different number elements.

With some creative thinking and innovate development techniques Viget was able to produce an engaging, responsive, and shoppable, site that can be experienced across a wide variety of platforms.<a href="" target="_blank">
