Screenlight – Screen Videos For Clients

Screenlight is an application that is meant to improve the way companies screen private videos for their important clients. When YouTube and Vimeo just won’t do, Screenlight provides a totally private, fast, and professional method for businesses to gather feedback and seek approval for the commercials, viral videos, and other advertising packages they’ve put together.

If you’re not sure whether your business could benefit from using Screenlight, then sign up for a free trial and give it a shot. Screenlight offers paid plans for solo entrepreneurs, small teams, studios, and even major film moguls who need plenty of storage and unlimited staff accounts. One by one, you can upload all the video projects you’re working on and see them appear on the right-hand side of the main page. Click on the project you’re hoping to work on right now to enter the Screenlight “screening room.” In addition to being able to view one or more videos in a project playlist, Screenlight also lets multiple project participants comment on each video. Anyone who’s listed as a project participant will automatically receive emails anytime a new comment is added.

When the video looks good enough to submit, send your client a link to the client screening room. Client screening rooms can be branded with your company’s colors and logos, creating a totally professional space to show off new videos and projects. Based on what they see, clients can then approve or reject the project right then and there. For any marketing, advertising, media, or design business that deals with video projects on a daily basis, Screenlight is a secure and professional way to interact with clients.

Practical Uses:

  • Show your client the 30-second commercial you’ve created
  • Collaborate on a video project with teammates
  • Offer feedback on what you think a coworker’s video is missing
  • Find out instantly whenever new feedback has been added to your video

Insider Tips:

  • Include as many participants as you want to a specific project
  • Create a branded client screening room
  • Watch videos in small or full-screen format
  • Select a plan based on how much storage your company needs

  • Screenlight’s client screening rooms look very professional
  • No need to worry about clients being able to view specific video formats on their computers
