Spring 2022 Product Updates: Make Video 5x Faster

Our newest product releases make it easier than ever to record, edit, and produce video — FAST.

July 27, 2022

We’ve been heads down the past few months, working on a slew of new features and fixes to improve Capsule's product experience. And now that spring has sprung, we're ready to dish. Read up on our latest updates below.

The Top Hits

From a brand-new camera to lightning-fast preview speeds, here's a short list of the top releases we're most excited to share this season.

Update #1: Crowdsource quality video from anywhere

The upgraded Capsule Camera

The Capsule Camera had a major glow-up, with all-new features like an intuitive countdown, guided prompts, one-click upload, and flash mode. The new user experience is like butter, helping even your most camera-shy contributors capture higher-quality video. And best of all, you can now embed the Capsule Camera in your landing pages and apps to capture video from anyone, anywhere. Give it a try below.

Update #2: Capsule is 5x faster

Lightning-fast video previews

Whether you’re crowdsourcing video with Capsule Collect or creating branded video in Capsule Studio, your experience just got way faster — 5x faster, to be exact. Capsule contributors will now see video previews seconds after recording or uploading. And Capsule Studio users will notice major improvements in render speeds after making edits to videos.

Update #3: More opportunities for integration

Webhooks are here!!!

We. love. integrations. And with webhooks, it’s now easy to integrate Capsule with your favorite apps. Want to get a Slack notification whenever a contributor submits a new video to your Capsule? Just link them with Zapier. Want to push data from Capsule to your CRM? Same same.

To get started, visit Settings > Developer in your Dashboard and add a Webhook URL to identify exactly where you want your Capsule data posted. Check out our Webhooks Developer Resources for more info.

Update #4: Add Capsule to your Hopin events in seconds

Capsule for Hopin

Last month we partnered with Hopin, the all-in-one events platform, to make virtual and hybrid events more engaging. Our new Capsule for Hopin integration helps event organizers collect speaker videos, audience questions, and more. All you have to do is install the app, link your Hopin event to a Capsule campaign, and start capturing. Visit the all-new Hopin App Area to install Capsule or learn more.

Update #5: Faster answers to your support questions
