Avid – a case study

“As demand for video grows, AVID has positioned itself at the forefront of creative community. But we don’t do it alone.  By partnering with innovators like Overcast, we have developed a Review, Approval and Collaboration application for MediaCentral | Cloud UX that will accelerate time to market, increase communication and support an audit trail that is essential for all creator workflows.”

Ed Caracappa, Senior Director Business Development at Avid

 

The Challenge:

Avid were looking for a technology partner with cloud expertise in Collaboration, Review & Approvals. After winning the Best in Show at NAB2018 in Las Vegas, Overcast was chosen as the Alliance Partner to supply this key cloud solution and infrastructure.

The Solution:.

Build and integrate a bespoke Review & Approvals solution for Avid’s MediaCentral | CloudUX platform.  Available both online and offline for Air Gapped environments. (See image below)

The Result:

We designed an intuitive collaboration platform that anyone could use – editors, producers, executives and clients. The ease of use of the UI allows Avid to bring more users as paid subscriptions.

For the clients, the result has been the ability to reduce Review and Approvals by hours, and in some cases days, by being able to share content and get feedback without ever having to leave the platform. Ultimately, the collaboration becomes searchable metadata that is then associated with the video in perpetuity.  Click here to review on Avid’s website.

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!
