Frame.io revenue was probably 95% Adobe customers and they then gave away the basics to every Adobe subscriber so they won very little business. It was a tech purchase

Yep. To be fair I suppose that did put a floor under it and, as like all placing, was bound to drop to it. Onward

PC.

As in they will see elevate.io is in demand and popular, so more attractive to them to buy us out.

I think Frame.io was only making $15m per annum, and they paid $1.3 billion for them.

NickB Allenby's updated model uses £36 per month for the average user. YouTube reportedly had around 15M Video Creators last year - even 1% of that would produce very significant profits so I think your patience will soon be rewarded either by an exit or a much improved share price

they arent going for this $6.9bn part of the sector and then stopping, that is the first focus, then the prosumer as a second focus .... but they want who they think are the easier payers in first to get some cash in at more minimal marketing cost ..and then grow from there

you cant target a $20bn part of the market all at once, you have to slice it up

1% of $6.9 billion is $69m

" Professional users will want full features and will have no problem paying £30 per month "

agreed Nick.... very cheap monthly overhead for an essential tool for their trade

Adobe are very capable of Assessing elevate.io with zero customers

Adobe already have the credit card details of any paid elevate users accounts we may win.

Freemium is for Mcsean’s teenagers plus viral interest.

Professional users will want full features and will have no problem paying £30 per month

IF the product is good we shouldn’t need expensive marketing for pro users.

The product being strong is the key here not marketing imho

" As you say if they get 500k freemium users, we look very attractive to the likes of Adobe."

For what exactly Cabi?...since when did Adobe hunt for cheapskate freebie users ?...if they did then you are in need of just a simplistic editor then....waste of time with much of the rest

There is very little justification for most of the board imho, other than for regulatory decisions.

Feels like a duplication of roles with Sumit and the team doing the hard work.

Hard to see what value they have added and what relevance they have to elevate.

Also a massive expense over the last 2 years.

Raising funds to pay salaries to allow directors to buy shares to raise funds to.....

HB.

There is a Freemium package, with the basics.

As you say if they get 500k freemium users, we look very attractive to the likes of Adobe.

Yes, that's what worries me.

I think the free first subscription channel is the only answer. As it is collaborative you have to get many people using it to hit critical mass so it becomes a standard tool and so worth people diverting cash to having. No point having a few early adopters using it with costs at this level.

I think they are aiming firstly at those types whom they got the feedback from who said they wanted a new product and told them what they wanted .... in many ways these are the low hanging fruit who may well be willing to pay off the go ... they are professionals and will pay for what they need , especially if it saves them time and hassle etc
..gets some money in the coffers and also provides the good reviews/feedback to sell it further into the market of prosumers as a second tier

Imo their only chance is to establish as large a client base as possible, as quickly as possible, even if it is loss-making! This means plenty of offers of free trials that last three months or so.

The market will forgive them a lack of profit so long as they have a ton of clients.

The reason for this is that, once you have a large base of customers it is far easier to raise your prices, than to have to lower them if your client base is too small.

It worries me that they still seem fixated on going for the upper end of the market.

If they only manage to acquire a few thousand registered clients (paying or not) in the first six months, then goodbye BIRD.

I'm hoping that Mo knows this only too well and is not overridden by his seniors on the board.

40p by August!

good question....one assumes through the "land and expand" idea where once the client is on board then more revenue will come their way from them ...over time ... diluting the effects of the costs of getting them on board ??

Pokerchips that's useful to know, but if the company are forced into lossmaking positions by these custom integrations then how did they ever expect to become profitable?

The only customers of which we know for the original M&E product are large corporate users. There are many fewer of them and shifting to using a new product has costs as well as advantages. Those advantages have to be clear to those who make the decisions and it helps if there is a substantial cost saving e.g. journalists editing their own video. So it's an up hill slog.
By contrast elevate.io offers a low cost entry and even at the top end it's petty cash for any established video creator. If the expectations they are building are met the big issue will be handling the admin but Rai and Volans will know all about that and the means of dealing with it. Having a large number of users does mean that a loss like A&E cannot occur though an ability to deliver at all times what was promised is paramount for retention.
By now the BIRD team must have a very good idea of what is achievable in the short term. Provided costs are controlled by matching acquisition payments to introducers against actual income very fast growth can be achieved without creating a cashflow crisis. We are living in interesting times.

‘The only possible reason is that there must be other competitors driving the price down to unprofitable levels’

Actually no, M&E is dominated by one editing supplier

AVID

Perhaps 90% of the pro editing market in M&E

Second reason is Cloud working is still very niche.

Best go after the bigger market that is more open but it’s required a lot of technical progress to make this happen.
