ABOUT VIMEO CANADA
According to comScore, Canadians spend an average of 2.5 hours a day watching videos online. From news to cat videos, there's no denying that online video viewership is growing and that Canadians are consuming content at an incredible rate. Since coming on the scene in 2004, Vimeo has been a popular destination for clips, movies, short films and indie content. Accunting for a whopping 11% of all internet bandwidth, the site is not far behind YouTube and Facebook in popularity.
Founded by Jake Lodwick and Zach Klein, the company's name combines the words "video" and "me". With a company goal to put video-watchers and creators first, the site promises to give users the best ways to share, discover and be inspired. In essence, Vimeo is all about YOU. Whether you stop by to watch or to post your own original content, the site allows you to easily get the most out of your video experience.
With "YouTube" becoming such a household name, competitors must dig deep to give users reason to use their service. For Vimeo, gaining the loyalty of their users is an easy task. Some of the main perks when it comes to using Vimeo for watching or uploading content, include:
- Unlike YouTube's enormous audience, Vimeo enjoys a smaller, more niche community of film appreciators and therefore more focused, more inspiring content.
- Vimeo offers a cleaner layout and a more visually appealing look. This is especially valuable to those uploading content for commercial purposes.
- No ads or banners before or during your video. Need we say more??
- Better privacy controls. Vimeo allows users to password protect their video content, only sharing with specific individuals.
- A paid Vimeo Pro account allows users to have incredible control over their videos, such as customizing visual elements, sound, text overlays, etc.
Currently, Vimeo offers three account options to its users: Vimeo Basic, Vimeo Plus and Vimeo Pro. The basic account is free and gives users up to 25GB of upload space a year as well as basic privacy features and basic options for video conversion Vimeo Plus and Vimeo Pro are the paid account options, offering extended features, better privacy and customization options as well as more upload space.
