Improving the experience of working with video for all
It was frustrating how seemingly simple tasks were so hard to do using existing video management platforms – why couldn't we quickly see where footage was taken, or who was in the footage?
Specialised solutions exist to handle complex forms of data such as 3D design schematics or sensor data from nuclear reactors, however, when it comes to the richest media – video – there was no good solution.
We set out to build is for ourselves, and Col8 was born.
Founded by Rupert and Charles to solve the issue of video being so hard to use, they knew there was a better way with the power of data and Col8 was born
Focussed on developing a cloud solution for organisations with video challenges at a massive scale, Col8's suite of tools became mature for the wider market
Took a round of venture funding enabling Col8 to quickly expand the team and deliver next generation solutions to many markets including security and defence
