About Us

Empowering businesses to succeed with the
Power of Video

OUR MISSION

In this video, our Founder, Philippe Brodeur, explains how Overcast helps companies
manage and collaborate around video.

He speaks to our mission here at Overcast and what we provide for our many clients.
Our mission is to make the whole video ecosystem easier to manage by replacing
multiple tools with one simple management system.

Overcast’s Video Content-as-a-Service platform is the simplest, fastest and most
cost-effective way to view, review, approve, share, transcode, distribute, archive and
control your content.

It’s cloud-native and easily integrates with your existing technologies — therefore it’s
future-proofed. It uses AI to automate processes, saving you money.

Our Story

Everyone has a solution. Our early critics said:

“Why don’t you just use YouTube or Vimeo?”
They’re fine if you want to watch video, but what about security, privacy and
managing rushes?

“How about WeTransfer and Dropbox?”
Again, great until you’re faced with downloading hundreds of versions onto
your computer.

“How about memory sticks and hard drives?”
They’re fine too until you need to search for something or need a secure backup.
In fact, there are so many ways to share, collaborate on and manage video that
you are always wasting your time with tools that are not developed specifically
for video.

AUTOMATE THE JOB OF MANAGING VIDEO

Philippe Brodeur

Philippe Brodeur
CEO and Founder of Overcast HQ

Philippe’s first foray into TV was working for the BBC
when he went on a news shoot — it took five of them
(camera operator, lighting engineer, sound recordist,
reporter and producer) and two taxi drivers to gather
a 15-second clip. Ever since he’s been on a mission to
make it easier to watch and work with video. Overcast
HQ is a result of his love for both technology and TV.
His other great passions include coaching his sons at
rugby and skiing in the Alps.
