2015. Video collaboration startup Frame.io raised $2.2M



Frame.io, the service that improves collaboration process around video production has raised a $2.2 million. Co-founder and CEO Emery Wells says Frame.io emerged from his own frustrations about the tools available when he needed to work with clients, team members and other collaborators. On a typical project, you could share media files via Dropbox, Box or Hightail, but they don’t offer a great video-viewing experience, so might end up posting videos privately on YouTube or Vimeo. Bt even then, Wells said, “Communicating in a static email sucks; you just end up with a mess of links.” With Frame.io, you can upload video, photo and audio files; view the files in your browser; compare different versions; leave time-stamped annotations and comments; and even draw directly on the video or image.
