How About a Say in Cloudinary's Roadmap?

Introducing Cloudinary’s Product Roadmap Portal

To me, one of the most exciting aspects in a company’s lifecycle in which to participate is the product roadmap. As a customer of numerous services and from my many years of working in Customer Success, visibility into a company’s product plans reinforces my trust in it and my affinity for the brand. The fact that I’m entrusted with those plans, invited to provide feedback, and actually steer the company’s direction means the world to me. I feel that not only am I being heard, but that I’m also afforded the opportunity to make a difference.

Cloudinary has always been customer-centric and keenly interested in feedback and feature requests from customers, unhesitatingly sharing our product plans with them. And we’ve always worked hard to entertain those requests and adapted our roadmap in response. Now, to formalize the process, we have dedicated a brand-new portal to it!

Check out our public Roadmap page, in which you can view the product features that are in development, the newly launched ones, and our roadmap for the near future. For each of those items, you can upvote, cite reasons for urgency or delay, add comments, and share other insight. Can’t find the feature you need? Suggest it!

Our entire product team is on board. We’ll promptly and vigilantly review your take, categorize your requests, assign them a priority, adjust our plans, and update you. So, connect with us pronto!

Furthermore, once we’ve updated the portal with your feedback, others can review it, chime in, and upvote, if desired. Just like that, you’ll have had a say in our roadmap—in minutes.

Can’t wait to see what you have to say!

An Overview of Live-Streaming Video Trends

“Let’s go live.” For decades, that’s what newscasters say as they cut to real-time footage of a colleague reporting in the field. The live-video feed adds visual interest and perspective to a story beyond what can be communicated by someone sitting behind the news desk. In the same way, live-streaming video nowadays adds context to other consumer environments. From gaming and events to shopping and social media, “going live” enhances everyday experiences, and it’s something anyone can do with relative ease.

Readying Live Streams for Video on Demand

When planning a live broadcast or stream, companies often overlook the redistribution phase, but live-stream videos are useful well beyond their initial streaming. Why? Because not everyone watches the first run. For a wider audience, it makes sense to repost live content on your website under an “events” tab, on YouTube, and other social sites for video on demand (VOD). However, preparing footage for reposting can be a lot of work.

Optimize Visual Media for a Fast and Captivating Digital Experience

Did you know that humans process imagery 60,000 times faster than text? In fact, 90% of the information our brains process is visual, which makes it seem a no-brainer—pun intended—that brands are connecting with consumers through visual content online. However, adding media assets like images and videos to websites comes with a tradeoff: the more media, the heavier the site, which results in a noticeable slowdown in page loads and a reduction in content quality.
