Frame.io Announces Series B Growth Round of Funding Led by FirstMark Capital

Frame.io, developers of the video review and collaboration platform for content creators, has raised $20 million in Series B growth funding led by FirstMark Capital. The latest round of funding was also supported by return backers Accel Partners, SignalFire and Shasta Ventures. This latest infusion of capital brings Frame.ios total funding to date to $32 million, which the startup will use to develop in key areas including the core video review and collaboration product, cloud and content security, and the Frame.io developer ecosystem. Founded in 2014, Frame.io is also backed by Hollywood heavyweights Jared Leto and Kevin Spacey.

Were excited to continue to work with our existing partners at FirstMark Capital, Accel Partners, SignalFire and Shasta Ventures, states Emery Wells, co-founder and CEO of Frame.io. The round is an exciting milestone for our team, and more importantly our community, and will help us in elevating our mission from reimagining video collaboration to reimagining post production itself.

In today's digital ecosystem, video is becoming an integral part of nearly every company's media and content strategy, said Amish Jani, a founder and Managing Director of FirstMark Capital. Frame.io is transforming the way companies approach the business of creating video. This latest investment will help Frame.io scale and continue developing a world class product for a creative community that has traditionally been underserved by technology.

Frame.io makes the process of sharing and collaborating on video projects incredibly simple, through an intuitive user interface where users can upload and organize projects, then share internally or with clients to review and add feedback. Used by leading media and entertainment companies including TechCrunch, BBC, Vice, The Onion, Facebook and many more, Frame.io has helped countless organizations in the transition to video, as more and more companies implement video into their branding strategies.

With the Series B funding, Frame.io will be making a sizable investment in iterating the core product, with a significant focus on cloud and content security. Trusted by some of the worlds largest media corporations, security is top of mind for leaders in the industry; as such, security has become a core pillar of the Frame.io product offering, and will continue to expand with features such as watermarking and a host of new security/compliance certifications including MPAA. This investment in security will also extend to the inclusion of artificial intelligence and machine learning into the core and enterprise product roadmap.

Artificial Intelligence is going to play a huge role in Frame.io's future, states Matthew Ruttley, Head of Data at Frame.io, who spearheads the companys Data Science initiatives. Enterprise customers will benefit from a whole host of powerful, proprietary Machine Learning systems. These apply to everything from streamlining video review workflows, to robust, all-important security features.
