ScreenLight Review

Instantly and easily share video files to clients around the world with ScreenLight. ScreenLight is a cloud video collaboration website that allows you to upload video files to a dedicated sub-domain. Everything is private and secure.

I was given an account to try out ScreenLight and I have to say I am fairly impressed! I love that you’re able to change the header color to your company’s color scheme and even upload a logo. This is much more professional looking than uploading a deliverable to Vimeo or YouTube.

Plus, ScreenLight also has the ability for you to add multiple users. So, if your company has several editors or you’re working with multiple clients, everyone can have their own account.

One thing I was disappointment with is that you can only upload files 2GB or less. So if you have a large file, you’re going to have to compress that puppy. But what’s nice is that you can throw almost any file type at it and it will convert it for playback on Macs, PCs, mobile phones, tablets, Apple TVs, and more! Your account is mobile-optimized. So you or your clients can easily check out uploads on their iPhones, iPads, etc.

Whether you’re a freelancer or a huge post-production house, ScreenLight has multiple storage options for you to choose from:

  • 2GB of storage – $24 per month
  • 5GB of storage – $49 per month
  • 12GB of storage – $99 per month
  • 20GB of storage – $149 per month
  • 50GB of storage – $249 per month

Overall, I am impressed with ScreenLight’s service. It was very snappy and easy to use. Uploading a video didn’t seem to take that long – I’d say about the same time as Vimeo or YouTube. I would definitely recommend ScreenLight to any company looking to become more professional and share videos privately across the globe. Plus, ScreenLight has excellent customer service! Whenever I send them an email, I usually get a reply shortly after!
