Digital Rebellion rolls out Kollaborate 1.3

Digital Rebellion has rolled out Kollaborate 1.3, the latest update to its cloud-based platform for sharing and reviewing video footage, intended for professional post-production work.

View and comment shared videos via a standard browser
Launched in 2013, Kollaborate enables studios or teams of artists to upload videos to a secure cloud storage area, view them and add comments via a web browser, and annotate videos by drawing directly over the frame.

Once created, comments can be exported to FCP and Avid marker lists. The platform also includes a set of basic task-assignment and task-management tools.

Kollaborate comes with a suite of free helper tools, including free versions of CinePlay, Digital Rebellion’s professional media player for Mac OS X and iOS devices.

New comment- and task-management options
New features in Kollaborate 1.3 include the option to sort comments by date or timecode, and filter them by author or keywords. Comments are also now displayed as markers in the timeline during playback.

The UI of the Tasks section has been simplified, and tasks are now colour-coded according to priority; while project managers get the option to see who has viewed a file for review and ‘nudge’ anyone who hasn’t.

Pricing and availability
Kollaborate 1.3 is available now. Monthly and annual rental plans are available for between 5 and 250 users, and cost from $45 to $379 per month if rented month-to-month.

As well as the cloud platform, a version of Kollaborate is available for installation on private servers, and costs between $599 and $1,499, depending on the number of users required.
