Frame.io: video collaboration, media access, task management in the cloud
By Randi Altman
We all know that the world and how people communicate and share information has changed — it’s instant and it’s global — and that change has trickled down to the production and post industries. While clients still come to see their projects worked on live and in person, that is no longer the norm. Instead, clients and collaborators can be at different sides of the globe or maybe just across town and not wanting to deal with traffic.
Regardless of the situation, more and more collaboration is happening remotely with the help of the Internet and applications designed to allow instant access and the ability to give feedback.
One recent offering is from Frame.io. It’s a cloud-based collaboration platform for media professionals that includes a variety of tools needed for easy and accurate review and approval. That includes file sharing, review, dailies (everything uploaded is transcoded to high-quality HTML5), easy communication (including marking up pictures and adding notes), version control (go back in time to review different versions side by side) and light asset management (tag and search).
