Video Producers able to Collaborate with

For years, we video producers have had to deal with how we share our videos with our associates or clients when we want to discuss changes, and where to go next. Weve mailed VHS tapes and DVDs and waited for their response. Weve made low-rez e-mail and FTP links and waited for their comments.

Several companies have felt our pain and have devised better more efficient sharing systems. One such company we recently discovered is Market7, a company that helps producers save time, money and energy as they collaborate on video productions with each other and their clients.[image:blog_post:14024]

There are many programs that allow video file sharing, like FTP (File Transfer Protocol) sites, but Market7 claims to have a complete, end-to-end solution that takes a video producer and client from the concept and planning stages all the way through to post production. This online environment can make it easy for video producers and clients to collaborate on scripts, share and view current versions of a project, provide feedback directly inside the and more streamlining the work involved in getting projects finished and out the door.

Pricing is based on the amount of storage space you use. Check out the key product feature demos.
