Showcase your compelling video content in a video callout.
Using Video Callouts
This callout is a link to a video that, when clicked, will pop up in a lightbox and
play from sources such as Kaltura or YouTube. Video callouts present with a still
image (465 x 310 pixels) including an overlaid play button and give you the option to add a brief, descriptive
The headline bar on these callouts has the option for including a category (in smaller
type) and a headline (in larger type). If you are using just one line of text above your
image, use the headline style and omit the category.
Your videos must also be fully accessible with clear, descriptive alternative text
and accurate captions. Follow the guidelines on the Video Callout page of the Digital Accessibility site and review the Captioning & Transcripts page to create useful, inclusive video content.
Video callouts need a still image to entice viewers to click on it. We prefer using
a photograph captured at the same time as the video. However, the image can be an
interesting frame from the video — just avoid frames with words or captions. Be mindful
of the overlaid play button in the center of your photo, and avoid covering faces.
