NAB 2015

Share, Review, & Approve Video with Your Team All on the Same Collaborative Platform

NAB isn't all about awesome new cameras and gear! Collaboration is the name of the game, and Wipster is hoping to make it a little easier with a platform that allows users to come together to share, review, and approve video. CEO Rollo Wenlock took us on a quick tour of Wipster to show us all of its features.

Here's the pricing rubric:

So this is in the same product space as frame.io right? Itd be good to see a product comparison at some stage...

Yeah there's crossover. I've tried both and to be honest Wipster has way more features.

Yeah. The fact that clients don't have to sign up to give feedback, download and approve videos is a massive plus for Wipster. Frame.io requires clients to sign up to give feedback and this is just not going to happen with most clients - they'll just ask me to Hightail/WeTransfer it instead, and then I'll get a word document back with inaccurate timecodes and poor descriptions of what I need to change.

When I initially looked at Wipster a while back, I think they included versioning in their minute count, which made it very expensive for what you got (especially if you're editing lots of 5-10 minute videos which go through countless revisions). At the time, I wrote it off for being too pricey. But now that they only count the first version and not subsequent revisions, it actually is a lot more reasonably priced. Given the feature set, it's now probably a viable replacement for my Hightail account (it only costs a little more, but does so, so much more). Heck, if you only did 15", 30" and 60" edits, and didn't care about personalised branding, you could probably get by on the free account.

Hi Rollo here, founder. You certainly can get by on the free account, and we really want people to do this. We don't feel it necessary to make money out of everyone, we'd rather support the up and coming artists and give them a platform to look professional, and get their work done, and then when they are doing well, they can buy a bigger account off us. This is working extremely well for both them and us so far.

I started on the free version and quickly upgraded after realizing how well this service worked for my team. Kudos Rollo, this has made my life much easier! We sometimes have 20+ cooks in the kitchen and it really helps to keep their notes straight and allows them to see each others feedback so I don't get the same message from everyone.

We use both. Wipster for client feedback and frame.io for team collaboration. We're pretty happy doing it that way.

Wipster makes it dead simple for anyone without an account to access the video and make feedback. I've been using it since beta and it's fantastic at this. It's really easy to see who has or hasn't accessed the video, watched it, or left feedback. The to-do list feature is better than frame.io's as well.

Frame.io has greater flexibility for collaboration, like simultaneous playback of versions, better commenting system, and support for more than video, like music... things that aren't really all that important for most clients, but are very important to teams.

Same this as vidhub.co but more expensive. Cool.

I've been using Wipster for the past couple of weeks for a corporate gig and i really like it. Tried out Frame.io last week and enjoyed that as well. Both have their positives, but whoever comes out with a phone app and mobile support first is probably where i will hang my hat

As it has an app for on the go it's already better than frame.io for me, as well as not having people sign up to comment. that's also a big plus.

Our thesis has always been, 'make review so simple my mom could use it'. She can...
