AboutCol8 is the power behind geospatial video solutions Getting more value out of your action camera footage has never been simpler
The story of Col8
In recent years action camera technology has developed and improved, allowing us to record our rides in spectacular HD video and track our progress using motion and location metrics. In short, it's never been easier to capture ourselves and others landing jumps, riding waves, or hurtling down the mountain, but for us the problems started when we got back home. We were frustrated by having to manually manage all the video files we ended up with, and the difficulty in finding a certain day's footage again once we'd filed it away somewhere on our computers.
Long time friends Rupert and Chaz were riding around their local trails in Bristol, UK, and over a post-ride beer or two decided they had the skills and motivation to start tackling these problems. They founded Col8 on the principle that people don't think in terms of files and folders – the way computers do – but in terms of memories, context and places. We keep this guiding principle at the core of our development, and continue to build interactive and intuitive ways to view, share and manage video content.
