The new Tubifi features enable multiple creative professionals, no matter where they are located, to work together producing, editing, reviewing and publishing video projects. Tubifi collaboration eliminates geographic constraints, reduces costs, improves quality, and dramatically accelerates production of business videos.

Tubifi now is the only cloud video production platform that enables creative professionals to:

  • Collaborate on creation of videos in the cloud using a robust Final Cut Pro-compatible online video editor and other production tools.
  • Post preview videos with interactive commenting for clients and other reviewers and approvers.
  • Search for stock media from a database integrating millions of video, audio and still clips from the world’s leading content libraries; immediately assemble and preview comps in the online editor’s timeline; and purchase only the clips that will be used.
  • Permanently store their video assets in a personal Tubifi account with up to 100 gigabytes of free online storage.

“Tubifi is the only online video platform that lets users invite others to work on their projects, then post rough cuts for client review,” said Tubifi CEO Martin Heller.

How Tubifi Cloud Video Collaboration Works

A video creator who wants to work with others sends email invitations with a login code enabling them to work on the project. All collaborators have the same view of the project on the Tubifi platform. The host can purchase stock footage for the project, and any collaborator can search for and post preview stock clips into the timeline. Any collaborator can also upload footage into the project.

When a project is ready to show a client, the creators email an invitation to reviewers with a URL to open a Composition Preview window that displays the video along with a form for submitting comments. Once the client has approved a rough cut in the cloud, the creators can buy the stock footage to be used, and the full-resolution footage will automatically replace the low-resolution proxies in the composition.

Project creators can then export the media assets from the Tubifi cloud editor directly to their desktops for additional effects and editing. Media exports are Final Cut Pro 7 file-compatible for seamless desktop editing. If their projects don't require additional finishing, they can publish their HD videos to the web directly from the Tubifi platform.

"Tubifi is a perfect complement to, not a replacement for, Final Cut Pro and other desktop nonlinear video editors," said Heller. "By giving video professionals cloud-based tools that integrate smoothly with their existing workflows on the desktop, we help them save time and money and improve quality. For the first time, video editing and production can be a true collaboration.”

Premium Services to Come

The new Tubifi collaboration features are being offered for free on a short-term basis to any user who signs up for a free Tubifi Professional subscription, which features unlimited use of the online video editor, easy search, preview and purchase of stock footage, and 100 gigabytes of free storage. Later in 2013 Tubifi will introduce premium Business and Enterprise subscriptions that will include collaboration and other enhanced features for monthly subscription fees.

How do you know when a technology has become mainstream? A good clue may be when politicians start talking about it on the campaign trail and with mainstream media. David Cameron, the UK prime minister, was the latest, indicating that the world was now on “fast-forward” with the Internet of Things (IoT) ushering in the new industrial revolution. No mention of IoT targeted at the masses would be complete without the clichéd example of the communicating fridge. While it is easy to get caught up in...
Machine-to-machine (M2M) technology and the resulting Internet of Things are leading us inexorably toward everything-as-a-service (XaaS). As more things get connected, the range of service opportunities expands. And as those services are presented online, they become available for use, re-use and re-purposing. At first thought, the idea of more connected devices suggests simply that there will be more devices around, and as such, more products for manufacturers to make and sell. That’s true, bu...
