Kollaborate Server 1.3.1 released with Kollaborate Encoder 1.0

Last week we released Kollaborate Server 1.3.1, a minor update to our in-house workflow and review platform for video professionals.

This update coincides with Kollaborate Encoder 1.0, which allows you to transcode uploaded video and audio files to playable formats in-house on your own servers. If you have a large volume of files being uploaded at once you can even combine multiple Kollaborate Encoder servers to handle them simultaneously. Kollaborate Encoder is available as a separate purchase but is included free with Kollaborate Server Unlimited licenses. All existing customers, regardless of their current license type, have been given free Kollaborate Encoder licenses.

In addition, it supports all of the features of the cloud version including:

Toggle email alerts

Kollaborate alerts team members to your actions like uploading a file or making a comment. However, in some situations you may not necessarily want this, so you can now temporarily switch off notifications for your actions when you want to silently upload a file or add a user.

Multi-Factor Authentication (Beta)

Improve the security of your account by tying it to a phone. When you login you will be asked for an additional code from the phone, meaning it is very difficult for someone to access your account without having physical access to your phone, even if they know your password.

This feature is currently in beta and we welcome all feedback. Note that this currently only applies to logins directly through our site but logins through our apps will be added soon.

Various Team improvements

It's now easier to change the positions of team members in your project by choosing from the dropdown menu instead of having to enter editing mode.

We've also added the ability to import and export to vCard format to integrate with your contacts in other tools like Gmail and Outlook.

Plus you can now invite multiple users at once to the same department and position by separating their email addresses with commas.

Kollaborate is a cloud workflow platform designed to help you work better with colleagues and clients. Upload files to the cloud, have them reviewed by others and then export their notes back to your editing application. Kollaborate Server gives you all of those features in-house on your own servers and storage. To find out more, view the feature list or sign up for the free no-obligation 15-day cloud trial (no credit card needed). Trials of Kollaborate Server are available on request.
