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.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Su...

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
