Cozimo Makes Video Collaboration Easier

Here is the scenario: you and your partner are located across the country and working to produce a series of videos for your company. You both need access to the assets involved, and grow tired of using Dropbox or Google Apps to act as an intermediary to store your files, which are too big to attach to your emails practically.

Enter Cozimo, a site that is designed for this specific purpose. They have been around for a several years with a hosted service that was setup for smaller video creators. This week they announced their Enterprise edition, which doesn’t use their cloud to host your content, but offers all the same kind of services.

A big feature of Cozimo is being able to hold online review sessions that multiple people can participate in and make markups on particular video frames in real-time. A wide variety of video formats are supported, including MP4, AVI, WMV, FLV and Quicktime MOV. You can upload all kinds of files to your own repository, including text, PDFs and pictures too.

The original version was based on Flash, which was fine for its day. But now any video creator worth his or her black outfits carries around an iPad to show off their content, and so Cozimo has rewritten the Enterprise version to include support for HTML5. Unlike the original, you use your own storage and their software to manage the collaboration. Everything is available with just a Web browser and no other special software needed.

The software has subscriptions starting at $5,000/yr. One plus for the Enterprise version is that there are no restrictions on file sizes: the original version limits you to files less than 60 MB. The hosted version has a free service for a single workgroup that is limited to 10 MB of storage, which won’t get you much video, and there are more capable and expensive plans that also include branding with your corporate logo.
