Sharing files is a task that most people do every day. Simple tools like Dropbox, Box and CloudApp make it simple to upload your files and send a URL link to your work colleagues, clients or friends. Video sharing is also a part of our every day lives, with platforms like YouTube and Vimeo that make it easy to upload amateur video and share it with the world.
More and more companies are using video content to boost their business. For media giants, production companies, post houses, and advertising agencies, video is at the core of their business. Many non-media-centric businesses are increasingly using video for marketing, client education, training, and capture of important events like all-employee meetings. As more companies use more video, the need for a reliable and secure way to share video and collaborate on video production is becoming more important. Most companies do not want their video to be shared via consumer sharing platforms like YouTube and Vimeo, lest the content be viewed at low quality, or leaked before it is complete, or accessed by the wrong audience. Plus, these platforms do not have many of the workflow, collaboration and organization features that companies need. This is where Professional Video Sharing can help.
