Ready for some insider tips? Below are the top five hacks that Executive Producers and Sales Reps can implement right now to bolster sales and increase production workflow with Simian.
Recently Chrome discontinued support of the Apple Quicktime plug-in. While the internet at large didn’t even blink, business users - in particular video centric businesses - experienced considerable heartburn over the issue. I read a statistic that stated less than 2.5% of the sites on the web used the quicktime plug-in. Ok, that seems plausible but is that an accurate or qualified measurement? Drilling into that statistic reveals that those 2.5% happened to be the video content producers. Apple’s format of choice and the most popular internal format of vast number of video content producers is still MOV. Furthermore, “sites on the web” doesn’t account for the countless MAM and DAM systems that have relied on the QT plug-in as it’s been an internet staple for over a decade.
So here we go, the first post on our new blog. Here at Simian we have lots of ideas. We’re like an idea factory that manufactures and dismisses far more ideas than we will ever use, because it keeps things interesting. Sometimes, the ideas we dismiss are great in theory but, our pragmatic approach to product design and technology, dictates that we pull back a bit until an idea is truly worth pursuing. Sure, building a time machine is a great idea, but the practicality of it just doesn't pass our "doable" and “can do it better than anyone else” test.
