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 fre 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
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."

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

online video editor, easy search, preview and purchase of stock footage,
