With the latest update, video professionals using Frame.io will discover three things: the platform is easier, faster and more secure to use. Discover the new features present in the renewed Frame.io.
When you open Frame.io today, if you have not used it in the last couple of days, you’ll discover some changes. The company behind the collaboration platform used by over 700K filmmakers and media professionals has introduced 10 new features that, it says, “will dramatically improve how media professionals collaborate on video, from initial upload to final delivery and everything in between. Top user-requested features now available in Frame.io include a new reel player presentation format, @mentions, and support for multi-page PDFs.”
“Nearly four years ago Frame.io came to market with a vision to change the way filmmakers collaborate. We’ve rolled out hundreds of updates along the way, but today, we’re excited to release 10 features that we’ve been dying to ship since day one,” commented Emery Wells, co-founder and CEO of Frame.io. “We launched an all-new reel player presentation format, unlocked private comments, and enhanced our version management feature. We also seriously expanded the type of media we support—you can now collaborate on PDFs just like on video, so your entire video workflow can live in Frame.io.”
What users say
Speaking about one of the features most requested by users, Jesse Borkowski, Director of Video Strategy, Berklee College of Music Online said this: “Multi-page PDF review has brought the same collaborative review process that we’ve been using for video to documents. Since our team is already using Frame.io to review videos and graphics, the inclusion of multi-page PDFs lets us manage all content reviews in one place. This helps our team quickly form consensus and reduces duplicate work. Everything that we’ve come to rely on for video review is now available for documents in Frame.io.”
“Frame.io has streamlined the creative collaboration process with our team and partners. With all of our content centralized in one place, we are able generate an easy to use presentation which effectively showcases our creative.” added Jason O’Leary, VP Post Production, Fox Sports Marketing, to the series of comments made about the new features.
