Beamshare is a video sharing tool that allows you to upload and send footage from anywhere for quick collaboration, review and approval.

With Beamshare you can:

  • Upload and send videos from any location at any time. No need to return to the office to upload footage.
  • Upload and send in any format and at any resolution, with confidence that recipients can view the files at any time.
  • Use any device to upload. If the internet connection is slow, upload will pause until the device can reconnect. Beamshare will automatically continue the upload. No need to spend all night watching for the file to upload.
  • Add comments to the timeline – which is available in milliseconds – for review. Collaborators can also timeline comments depending on the level of access you have allowed. This enables rapid review and feedback.
  • Control your collaborators’ access. Decide who you wish to share with and for how long. You can remove access at any time.
  • Use a web widget option for a simple upload, if required. Or if you would like to embed it into your current website.
