Punching above your weight

March 1, 2013 | Leave a comment

I wrote about doing great work at a small startup like latakoo over on Quora:

This, for me, is the essence of a small startup. From that hunger to build something that solves a problem for people, to the fact that everyone is doing a little bit of everything – whatever needs to be done, whether it’s taking a new corporate client through the administration process, or emptying the dishwasher.

I really like the Quora blog system. So much so that I’ve restarted my old blog, The Internet is People, over there (although this will remain my primary blog).

Sharing video from the iPhone 5

September 12, 2012 | Leave a comment

The iPhone 5 comes with a sophisticated new camera that shoots image-corrected, 1080P video (while having more battery life, 2x the CPU and 2x the graphics processing).

Those video file sizes are going to be intense, so how will you share that beautiful footage you’ve shot?

This is where the latakoo iPhone app can help. We make it simple to send your high definition video to anyone with an email address – fast. (You can also push to Facebook and YouTube.) It’s free to sign up, and paid subscriptions get more features like collaboration groups, higher quality video downloads.

Set up a video blog with latakoo, and you can publish videos directly to the world, straight from your phone.

(And don’t worry, Android fans: you’ll be covered too, very soon.)

latakoo NBC deal in the news

July 13, 2012 | Leave a comment

Our deal with NBC made the headlines over at TechCrunch:

According to Werdmuller, the company has seen wide usage across broadcasters in the U.S. and Mexico. He mentions that one customer, Nexstar Broadcasting, which runs 55 TV stations in the U.S., is now seeing a 5x to 8x return on its investment. For many broadcasters on the service, the savings come from their ability to ditch the satellite truck, which one client said was $500 to hook up and $25 for every five-minute satellite window. And there’s the truck operator to think of, too. Those are some hefty costs Latakoo is helping to take down.

Austin Business Journal also picked up the story. Here’s my original post about it yesterday.

Send video privately, quickly

Someone asked me for a one-line description of Latakoo today. So here’s what we do in simple terms:

Latakoo is an enterprise video transfer solution that lets you send high quality video securely from any Internet connection. It’s easy to use, and extremely fast, thanks to our built-in one-click compression. And it’s affordable: paid plans start at $7.95.

(Of course, if you gave me more room, I’d tell you about the integrations with third-party sites and enterprise asset management systems, the apps for Mac, Windows, iPhone and iPad, the ability to download your video in a variety of formats suitable for professional editing, and the public video blog platform. Maybe you should bend my ear sometime – or just try it out.)
