Video Delivery to Clients
Only ten years ago, most of the videos we worked on were delivered to clients on VHS tape. Actually, everything was delivered on some type of tape. Then about 7 years ago, everything slowed began to be delivered onto DVD. It was a slow transition. Now, so much of our final products are being delivered to clients via the internet. This is not so easy. You cannot just email a 500M file. Because storage solutions are changing all the time, our methods of delivery are changing all the time. We are no longer using the older FTP method, which is actually effective, but difficult for many clients to login, and there are platform compatibility issues. As of now, we are using an effective method of temporary storage of final products to a cloud-based server. We then add a direct URL link on our client's page (which no one but the client has access to). Client's do to their page, and click the download link, and save the final version to their hard drive. It's not quite a simple as that, and as technology changes, so will this process. But it provides a way for clients to have anytime access to their video files, and they can share the link with anyone they need to.
