Wipster Offers Unlimited Cloud Storage For Video Files

Wipster Offers Unlimited Cloud Storage For Video Files

In an attempt by Wipster to “make life easier, cheaper, and fairer for customers”, they have done away with tiered pricing for their video storage, granting all customers unlimited video storage forever.

For those unfamiliar with Wipster, it is an awesome service that allows teams to easily collaborate on short form videos, allowing you to share a video project with your team, clients, etc. so they can leave notes and review the project. Anyone using the service would naturally be seeing a great deal of storage space devoted to projects. That or a great deal of time spent loading and offloading files to conserve storage.

However Wipster CEO Rollo Wenlock notes that this change is in response to the changing landscape and cost of data storage. “Data storage was previously so expensive that it led to very tiered pricing models. Companies would impose limitations in order to upsell customers to the next tier, and did very well off the back of it. But the truth is, those traditional pricing structures no longer reflect the actual cost of data storage.”

 

Data storage (and its high costs) is an issue many in our industry seem to take as a simple fact of life. Given the high cost of simply operating a business in the provideo realm, it’s really just another leaf on the tree of expenses. But it’s nice to see that there are some moves being made to free us of these chains that frankly, aren’t necessary, a goal of Wipster’s since its inception in 2014: “Since our launch, we’ve been freeing video producers up from the admin that their jobs require so they can spend more time making fantastic videos. First it was smoothing out the review-and-approval process, then we added unlimited versions, so that producers were never held back from refining and improving their work.”

Wipster’s cost starts at $15 a month, allowing customers to “share their videos with unlimited reviewers, create unlimited versions of each video, and create and store unlimited video each month”. The company and its service continues to grow, with even more robust features (team chat, NLE support and more) on the horizon.

WIPSTER LEADS MEDIA STORAGE REVOLUTION

Review-and-approval platform makes waves with unlimited cloud storage for video files – making life easier, cheaper, and fairer for customers.

Wipster today announced an unprecedented feature that positions the platform at the forefront of how video is produced, stored, and shared online. Members on any Wipster pricing plan can now store unlimited video files on the platform, forever – a bold move that aligns Wipster with a handful of other media/tech companies doing away with storage restrictions – most notably Google Photos, which launched unlimited photo storage in mid-2015.

Wipster CEO, Rollo Wenlock

Wipster CEO Rollo Wenlock explains the impetus for this sea change: “Data storage was previously so expensive that it led to very tiered pricing models. Companies would impose limitations in order to upsell customers to the next tier, and did very well off the back of it. But the truth is, those traditional pricing structures no longer reflect the actual cost of data storage.”

“And happily, there’s now a move towards removing these barriers. Value is now based on how easy and pleasant a product makes your life – customers should never be held back by how many files they can store at a certain price.”

Wenlock says ultimately this feature is about freedom: “Since our launch, we’ve been freeing video producers up from the admin that their jobs require so they can spend more time making fantastic videos. First it was smoothing out the review-and-approval process, then we added unlimited versions, so that producers were never held back from refining and improving their work.”

“With this move we’re making it even easier to do everything on Wipster – no more storing raw footage in one place, drafts in another and the final video someplace else – it’s all in one place, which streamlines your workflow and radically increases productivity.”

The announcement is supported by a 90-second video that explains the new features and showcases Wellington, New Zealand, birthplace of Wipster.
