Million dollar video search available free
Why I love Motionbox
Broadcasting companies have been developing video content management systems for the last decade. These are big expensive systems which cost millions of dollars to develop and several hundred thousand to buy.
And then there’s Motionbox. Which provides a good deal of what the above companies provide for absolutely nothing: thumbnails, timelines, scrubbing, tagging, search, linking. (Add Jumpcut into the mix and you also have editing)
Yes it’s not in broadcast quality, but that’s just a matter of time.
Motionbox typifies exactly why big media is (or should be) worried. The tools they have collectively spent billions to create, are now available direct to the public for free. In some cases the features in Motionbox are more refined than the ‘professional’ versions.
If there was a paid version of Motionbox which held media in high-quality somewhere and still allowed it to be viewed and tagged and linked-to around a secure extranet, I can think of a dozen clients I’d recommend it to immediately!
