Boost your video production to the MAX

The two long years of working from home during the COVID pandemic forced us to grapple with the unexpected challenges of remote working. 

For teams collaborating on video production, most have found that sharing/downloading video content is problematic, reviews and approvals are slow, workflows are clunky (at best), and speed to market isn’t speed at all (quite the opposite!)

Video production made easy

For compact teams and small businesses, Overcast provides off-the-shelf SaaS solutions, but larger organisations will need a solution that includes a more complex tech stack, seamless collaborative workflows and best-in-class security.

Enter Overcast MAX, a suite of next-generation cloud applications for production, collaboration, storage and distribution that makes remote video collaboration effortless. 

So, how does Overcast MAX work? Well, it’s a managed SaaS solution that improves your workflow and tech stacks through nine tailored products.

Max Live Streaming

“The global video streaming market size was valued at USD 59.14 billion in 2021. It is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.3% from 2022 to 2030.” 

Grand View Research

Max Live Streaming is a simple, secure, low-cost way to live stream broadcast events, town hall meetings, training and everything else you can think of. You can get up and running in seconds and scale up to your heart’s content. Even non-techies can do it!

Max Storage

Storage is one of the top concerns in relation to video production since video files are large and complex. Not a problem. You’re no doubt familiar with parties where you BYOB (bring your own bottle) — this occasion allows you to BYO storage. Best party trick ever!

With Max Storage, you can manage your workflows in the cloud or with a hybrid solution that conforms to your workflows. Not to mention the awesome benefit of future-proofing your content.

Max Transcribe

Transcribing is a slow, laborious and mundane task. But it’s a piece of cake with Max Transcribe, which uses the latest AI and Machine Learning to transcribe the audio content in a video. This makes your content immediately searchable and findable using time-stamps, plus you get your video content to market quicker.

Max Recognition

Remember a time when you had to spend ages scrolling through tapes searching for an amazing shot you know you filmed but cannot locate? Fortunately, those days are gone. Max Recognition uses the latest AI and Machine Learning to identify people, places, objects and events in videos and images. Also useful for managing archive footage.

Max User Interface (UI)

Every sector has its own jargon. For example, the media industry would refer to “assets” and “projects”, while the security industry talks about “evidence” and “cases”. Max UI is service-designed to allow you and your business to use the terms that are relevant to your industry.

Max Orchestrate

Technology is changing so fast these days that sometimes it’s hard to keep up. Monolithic architecture and legacy technology will stymie your workflows. So, if you need to simplify complex tech stacks and add/subtract new services, Max Orchestrate is the magic pill.

Max Identity

Naturally, when choosing a technology solution, security and identity protection are key concerns. No need to worry: Max Identity includes Single Sign On (SSO) and a number of Identity Security Techniques, including two-factor authentication, multi-factor authentication and auto logoff.

Max Editor

Max Editor is designed to ensure your audio-visual and graphics editors can use their preferred platforms — like Adobe or Avid — and still benefit from optimised cloud workflows. It’s secure. It’s speeds up collaboration. And you don’t have to download any content. Yay!

Max Simulator

Whether you are planning to invest in a cloud-based asset management platform for the first time or you need to expand your existing one, you’ll need to assess the cost and ROI, right? 

Throw your calculator in the bin! Max Simulator uses 20+ inputs to run an accurate simulation to help you fully understand your hosting and storage costs.

Enterprise Video Strategy: Scaling and Expanding

Live streaming became one of the most popular uses of video during the pandemic as enterprises needed to communicate with external stakeholders and also employees who were working from home.

In 2022 the popularity of this form of mass communication is not waning at all.

Video podcasting is also on the increase. Use cases include communicating with customers, marketing, sales, and training.

Video Now Main Form of Content For Enterprises

“Video is now poised to become the main form of content that’s digested in the enterprise. The huge surge in video meetings was the first wave in the shift to the visual enterprise. The second wave that is arriving now and in 2022 is about the need to organise, optimise, and deliver visual content to users.” — Aragon Research Globe for Enterprise Video, 2022.

This demonstrates the need for providers to step forward with innovative technology that enables enterprises to create, manage and distribute video content. The key focus for enterprises is on customer experience and employee engagement.

The Role of Video in Digital Transformation

In 2020 workplaces as we knew them experienced massive unexpected disruption.

Enterprises found themselves faces with a need for rapid digital transformation when the pandemic necessitated employees to work remotely. Suddenly, colleagues and managers were not in the same room to share information or collaborate on team projects.

This led to much upheaval among workforces. However, a magic pill to cure those ills was close at hand: video!

Influencers With A Cause

Social media activism creates opportunities for grassroots movements to evolve and expand. Some of the best-known examples are the Ice Bucket Challenge, #MeToo and Black Lives Matter, which have all involved successful social media movements.

So, how do creators and influencers with a cause go about making a difference?

James Dean was a rebel without a cause, but nowadays social causes are top of mind for creators, according to a study by Adobe.

Does Being A Creator Make You Happy?

The words ‘social media’ and ‘mental health’ are not always happy bedfellows, so it’s a legitimate question to ask, “Does being a creator make you happy?”

It takes time and effort to be create content, distribute it, and build a community, so what impact does all of that effort have on a creator’s mental health?

Adobe’s ‘Creators In The Creator Economy’ global study shows that creative people are happy people!
