Frame.io officially launches today and I took the opportunity to speak to its founder Emery Wells. We discuss what was behind the original concept for Frame.IO, how it works, who it is aimed at and how much it will cost to use.
Frame.io is a sharing platform for video that allows you to upload all your source media, work in progress and assets into private workspaces where you can invite your team and clients to collaborate. It aims to replace the tedious tasks of using multiple programs such as Dropbox for file sharing, Vimeo for video review and email clients for communication. Frame.io aims to combine all these processes into one easy to use application. Obviously to work this way requires good internet connectivity.
One thing to be aware of is Frame.io isn’t a distribution platform. It is not designed to replace platforms like YouTube and Vimeo.
This from Frame.io:
In July of 2014 we announced Frame.io to the world and with that, a promise of a more connected and collaborative way to create films, videos, and all sorts of multi-media.
But our journey started long before that. Three years ago my co-founder John and I decided the status quo just wasn’t going to cut it anymore so we set out to engineer the future. Along our path we’ve turned down work opportunities, relationships, and several acquisition offers by major tech companies because we’re committed to building a great business that will last.
