Windowseat is a Los Angeles based entertainment company that has been using Sorenson Squeeze and 360 since 2006 and produces work for an illustrious list of clients including NBC Sports, Nike, MTV, ESPN X-Games and MTV2. According to Windowseat’s Post Production Supervisor, Emiliano Haldeman, Squeeze has been especially useful for the company when producing live webcast events. “With Squeeze, we can turn around edits really quickly,” says Haldeman. “We set up a watch folder that auto compresses the videos and uploads them to an ftp. It makes things much faster and smoother for our editors. All that work flow at the end is automated.”
Windowseat uses Squeeze when editing with both Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro and they also use Sorenson 360. “360 is really helpful for client reviews,” says Haldeman. “When we finish an edit it will automatically send out emails with links to videos that clients can review and approve.”

Leading moving images blog Red Shark News has recently posted a glowing review of SQUEEZE 9. Barry Braverman of the site effusively praises SQUEEZE 9’s compatibility with HTML5, its support of every video codec “known to man” and its new closed captioning functionality.
“I’ve been saying it for most of the past decade,” says Braverman. “When it comes to managing and manipulating digital video you really only need three tools in your day-to-day life: yes, you need Adobe Photoshop; yes, you need your NLE; and yes you need Sorenson Squeeze.”
