Irish Times: Overcast plans to add 70 jobs after raising €500,000
by Overcast HQ
Video collaboration platform Overcast said it will add 70 jobs in the next three years after it raised €500,000.
The Irish start-up, which launched its services last year, also plans to expand into new markets with its product.
Overcast, which is backed by Enterprise Ireland, integrates the storing, sharing and distribution of video content for video producers, media agencies, marketers and broadcasters, with the goal of making it as easy to manage large video files as it would be to manage a document.
We can’t wait for the IBC Show (13–17 Sept) this year, particularly because we’ve been chosen by AWS to exhibit in their booth. You can meet with our CEO to discover how to make video collaboration effortless. You can also see a demo of our video collaboration software — and enjoy a free breakfast — during an exclusive Avid event at IBC on Saturday 14th September. We have 25 tickets to give away for this event.
Size matters. And when it comes to video file sizes — things are just getting bigger. Over the last decade, we’ve graduated from standard definition to high definition, 2K, 4K and now 8K. Combine that with image enhancement technologies and we are talking about file sizes ballooning. But it’s not just the media and entertainment industries that are chasing higher quality; businesses and brands are jumping on the bandwagon too. So just what are the implications for businesses?
We want to make content creation easier for you, your clients and your bosses. And by that we mean that we want you to spend more time being creative and less time fiddling around with technical tasks.
So, we are delighted to announce two improvements to the Overcast HQ platform: annotations and a dark UI.
It’s tech heaven in Nevada this week with two of the key global media, entertainment and technology conferences taking place back-to-back. Las Vegas doesn’t do things by half so it’s the ideal place to host these phenomenal events.
We could feel the excitement among the crowds as soon as our plane landed and we couldn’t wait to get to our stand at Avid Connect to start chatting with other tech enthusiasts.
