Managing everything related to sharing media digitally, specialized services and more!
We used to share media in person – opening a photo album, popping in a home movie, opening a freshly printed pack of developed pictures. We’ve been spoiled by technologies that instantly allow us to see the images or video we’ve captured, in addition to being able to share it across multiple social channels in a snap!
We’ve traded off some of our personal touch and privacy in exchange for being far reaching and instantly gratified – friends and family all over the world can see our photos and videos online as or moments after it happens!
Some of us take for granted:
- Getting media online and sharing it isn’t as simple as ‘pushing a button’ for everyone
- Some formats of media need to be transferred from a device (ex. I have a card in my camera, now what do I do?)
- Some formats of media need to be converted (ex. 8MM, MiniDV, VHS / Super VHS, Printed pictures to be scanned)
- Privacy concerns – not everyone is aware of what they’re sharing or who they’re sharing it with
While sharing socially can be awesome, some may also want a physical copy of printed media as a keepsake or gift. It may be a photo, calendar, stretch canvas, on a T-Shirt, mug or anywhere else you can think of.
We can walk into a store, stick a media card in a terminal and select your pictures (even this is be daunting for some between multiple screens, editing, plethora of options), go to another store and get a one off special gift like a T-Shirt printed, badger friends or family to get our media online (if they know what they’re doing and actually want to help – from experience that’s a big fat NO!), then we’re left with some sort of media storage we may want to keep as a backup and not overwrite. Some will go out and purchase another media storage device to replace it, move it on to their computer (when it crashes and those precious memories are lost watch out!), or simply overwrite it by accident.
Management and digitizing of your media doesn’t need to be difficult, frustration, or time consuming but it often is. I want a one stop shop for all my media management and service needs!
