Luckily, there are options available to help ensure the highest standards of security – and that’s exactly what we’re doing to help all of our users ensure their highly sensitive and confidential information remains safe and secure. Having multiple layers of data security on the […]
Update: Lightning fast video and audio previews at source quality
Yes, you’ve read that correctly. Once the files are completely uploaded, previews for web friendly formats like MP4 and M4A will appear almost instantaneously.
Video and audio previews now up to 70% faster on major modern web browsers
In November last year, we announced that the latest versions of the Digital Pigeon desktop app are capable of generating previews for video and audio files roughly 70% faster than previously, thanks to the addition of codecs to play H264 and AAC-based content (often wrapped up in the MP4 container).
An updated desktop app means faster audio and video previews
We’ve been working hard to improve the time it takes for previews to appear when you upload files. There are several key areas we are focusing on and we’re pleased to announce the first; an updated Digital Pigeon desktop app.
Introducing lossless audio streaming and playlist view
Our latest update was made with audio production studios front-of-mind. We’ve made two major upgrades that are going to make you smile.
Updates to security, log-in, app speed and more…
In our latest updates to Digital Pigeon, we have introduced: Google Login, Additional access information, Faster, more intuitive app responsiveness, Tweaks to email notifications, Session management and Automated human detection.
Digital Pigeon’s file-sharing service is now easier to use with SAML 2.0 Single Sign On (SSO)
SAML SSO is incredibly useful for enterprise customers like advertising agencies and in-house marketing teams at corporations. It streamlines your user management, increases security and efficiency, and makes it easier for everyone to access the files they need to work.
Create unique file receiving links with Digital Pigeon
We’re unveiling a new feature to make it easier for our users to create individual pages to receive files! You can set these unique pages for your own specific needs – but we’ve included some examples how they may be used below. Prior to this update, users could have an account-level receive link, plus one for each team member if the account had multiple users.
Drag and drop files from your computer, directly into an upload
At Digital Pigeon we love a good drag and drop function, and we’re pretty sure you will too.
You can now upload files straight from your computer by using the drag and drop function. Use it to create a new upload or add the files into an existing upload.
Blue badge notifications make activity tracking even easier
Do you find you lose track of what’s happening with your files? Who’s provided feedback? Who’s previewed what? In today’s world – there’s so much multi-tasking going on… it’s bound to happen!
To help, we’ve added blue notification badges to the Digital Pigeon interface. They keep count of files downloaded, files received, and comments added since you last viewed them.
Video scrubbing and frame stepping now available on Digital Pigeon
We love chatting to our customers about how they use Digital Pigeon and everyone’s use is a little bit different. Big Mouth Media, an eLearning narration company is no exception. We talked with their owner and voice over artist, Paul Seidel about why they made the switch from three tools to just using Digital Pigeon.
Use Google Drive for File Storage? We’ve got an integration for that now!
For those of you have been using Digital Pigeon for a while now, you will have noticed we are nicely integrated with Dropbox.
The way we see it, Dropbox is great for file storage (particularly for our types of clients who have huge amounts of data!) but it’s “light on” when it comes to file sharing, feedback, your own custom branding, etc.
