The channel has partnered with the leading photochromic lens company to develop custom content across TV, digital and social platforms.

Hong Kong, August 1, 2016 – National Geographic Channel (NGC), part of the FOX Networks Group (FNG) Asia portfolio, has partnered with Transitions Optical on a marketing campaign that launched in June, to educate viewers on photochromic and blue light technology. NGC is providing Transitions with integrated marketing solutions in the form of a programming block and vignettes, in which the channel will be featuring the unique technology behind Transitions® lenses and how it helps wearers adapt to different light situations.

The Transitions campaign consists of a programming block called “Life In The Best Light”, along with two vignettes about photochromic and blue light technology that NGC has produced to align with its smart, innovative programming. The programming block launched on June 2 and will continue for eight weeks every Thursday at 7pm HKT and 6pm BKK/JKT across Hong Kong and Southeast Asia. The vignettes explore the science behind the photochromic lenses and its advanced molecular structure, as well as delve deeper into the type of technology Transitions® lenses uses for superior light management, to help protect eyes against glare, UV and harmful blue light both indoors and out.

The campaign is set to reach NGC’s viewers across the region, providing Transitions with opportunities to communicate their brand message and the science behind their products to a receptive audience that has tuned in to the channel for its educational, high quality, entertaining content. In addition to being aired across TV, the vignettes will be progressively rolled out and seen online through January 2017.

Carol Sim, Regional Marketing Director, AMERA, Transitions Optical, said, “Partnering with NGC for this marketing campaign helps us to connect with those who love to explore and lead active lifestyles. Indoors or out, adventurers often need to adjust to different environmental conditions and require automatic protection from glare, UV and harmful blue light. We’re eager not just to offer a solution but also to share with the world the science behind our technology.

Yamini Ashish, Senior Vice President- Ad Sales & Partnerships, of FNG, said, “NGC’s partnership with Transitions Optical is a great opportunity for both the channel and the brand. NGC is renowned for highlighting innovation and is a well-respected brand especially amongst explorers and the intellectually curious. Delving into the technology of what puts Transitions at the forefront of their industry in a signature Nat Geo way, is exactly what we do best and makes this a great partnership.”
