Wipster Now Has Unlimited Data Storage for Their Video Collaboration Platform

Wipster's whole purpose is to make collaborating on video projects with your team easier and more streamlined. Now, their new data storage feature aims to make that process a whole lot better.

Today, Wipster announced that they've made cloud storage on their video collaboration platform completely unlimited across all of their pricing plans, and apparently they're the first ones to do this. So, regardless of whether you have the standard $15/mo Video Pro plan or the more expensive Enterprise plan, you get unlimited data storage.

Here's a video that introduces the new feature:

If you don't know much about Wipster, the simplest way to describe it would be "Google Docs for video." You can check out the basic workflow here, but essentially after you sign up, you upload the video you're working on, share it with your team. (Wipster has also announced "Per-Seat" pricing, which means it costs $15/mo for each team member.) Then you all get to work giving feedback about what you think works and doesn't work, which all gets turned into a to-do list. And this is all within the Wipster platform.

So, having unlimited cloud storage means that users don't have to be conservative about uploading data to the cloud, and furthermore, they don't have to wait until the next cycle begins if they do go over their data limit.

Wipster CEO and founder Rollo Wenlock explains the problem with limited data storage, as well as how going unlimited solves it:

Data storage was previously so expensive that it led to very tiered pricing models. Companies would impose limitations in order to upsell customers to the next tier, and did very well off the back of it. But the truth is, those traditional pricing structures no longer reflect the actual cost of data storage.

And happily, there’s now a move towards removing these barriers. Value is now based on how easy and pleasant a product makes your life – customers should never be held back by how many files they can store at a certain price.

With this move we’re making it even easier to do everything on Wipster – no more storing raw footage in one place, drafts in another and the final video someplace else – it’s all in one place, which streamlines your workflow and radically increases productivity.

Very sweet. Although free plan is still enough for me right now. I did invite 5 people so that gives you a few extra minutes.

This looks very much like Frame.io - Are the two companys linked?

No. The difference as far as I know, is that frame.io is more aimed at in studio collaboration with much more functionality, like exchanging all kinds of files. And wipster is more aimed at client review. With just support for video and commenting. The user interface is also a lot simpler. My view. Because wipster also promotes it as a collaboration tool.

Not linked, but basically the same. I use frame.io and I love it. I actually use it to send footage to the client for review, they comment on the clips they like and it creates little marks in the timeline so its easy to tell what part of the video they are commenting on. I edit a draft, upload, and they can view it online,make more comments for the next draft. Very similar to Wipster. Frame was cheaper when i signed up and more suited to my needs currently. Unlimited storage is awesome, but per seating pricing. PASS!

This looks like it would be equally useful for feature shoots for dailies review, especially since it seems like they'll be adding NLE integration in the future. This could conceivably work for that, right? Or is this mostly kinda just aimed at video production for commercial and freelance style work?
