An interview from the 2017 National Association of Broadcasters Convention in Las Vegas with Derick Rhodes of Vimeo. In 2004, Vimeo was founded by a group of filmmakers who wanted to share their creative work and personal moments from their lives. As time went on, like-minded people discovered Vimeo and helped build a supportive community of individuals with a wide range of passions. Today, millions of people from all around the world enjoy Vimeo, and their community is growing bigger every day. In this interview Derick talks with us about their newly introduced Vimeo 360 support for 360° Video & VR, time-coded notes in Review Pages and a simplified workflow solution for Adobe Premiere users.
Vimeo’s take on 360 video is simple: provide a home for creators to learn new techniques, upload, share, and sell 360 videos, while viewers can discover cutting-edge 360 videos from the world’s best creators across multiple platforms. Creators can upload 360 videos in up to 8K for high-res videos and enjoy 4K Ultra HD playback in the highest quality possible, including HD offline viewing in Vimeo’s mobile apps.
For both monoscopic and stereoscopic video, Vimeo allows creators to add metadata, customize player embed settings, capture email leads and insert calls-to-action directly in the embedded player, and more. Creators can also set their field of view, choose the exact point in space where their video begins, and include a compass in the player to orient viewers and encourage interaction. Vimeo 360 also offers dedicated educational resources to help creators learn the basics and access in-depth tutorials on 360 cameras, pre-production, shooting and editing.
Another exciting release is the all-new Vimeo panel for Adobe Premiere Pro CC — an extension built to simplify the post-production workflow for video professionals from within the Adobe Creative Cloud® editing suite. Creators can now upload videos directly from the panel to Vimeo for hosting and publishing without having to leave Adobe Premiere Pro CC. In addition, Vimeo PRO and Business members can instantly create a review page from within Adobe to seamlessly gather feedback throughout the video editing process.
The downloadable Vimeo panel for Adobe Premiere Pro CC is the latest in a series of enhancements to Vimeo’s Creator Platform. Last month, Vimeo launched new review tools for Vimeo PRO and Business members, to collect feedback and collaborate on video projects. With Vimeo’s review tools, creators can privately share videos with reviewers, and reviewers can leave time-coded feedback directly in the video.
