MediaSilo’s collaboration capabilities can’t match Simian’s robust suite of tools and features.
MediaSilo only offers project collaboration tools, whereas Simian is a complete solution for creative companies. From sales to finish, we have the tools creatives need - reels, sales analytics, project management, review and approval, final delivery.
In nearly 10 years of asset management, I haven’t come across a platform that works as well as Simian. I simply could not imagine doing my job without Simian at this point.

When posting rough cuts and edits, and moving from one job to the next, older projects can become overlooked, leading to accounts getting cluttered. Simian’s storage quota and auto-delete settings, which MediaSilo doesn’t offer, keep accounts up-to-date and free up storage for current projects.
We’re brand new Simian users, and we love it!

MediaSilo offers a bare minimum in collaboration capability. By contrast, Simian users can privately share and comment on files, annotate directly on video and images, manage versions effectively, compare videos side-by-side and integrate their comments with Premiere Pro, Slack, Dropbox and Box.
Simian has made it possible for me to juggle home life and a successful business. It allows me to tend to my family and our clients quickly and concisely, without being tied down to an office computer or editing bay 24/7.

Simian offers multiple presentation formats and delivery options, so you can pitch and share work in a way that best fits your needs. Our branded reel and project presentations, bearing your logo, take seconds to send out, and you can easily create your own presentations with our customizable templates.
Simian provides us with a modern method of instantaneous, digital communication, whether we're operating locally, nationally, or globally. It’s an integral part of the way we do business on a daily basis.
JP McMahon, Executive Producer, A Common Thread
Every Simian account is on its own private cloud server, adding another layer of security and reliability, unlike at MediaSilo, where all accounts share the same server.
Simian is easily the best video collaboration and presentation service available. I can easily create reels for trade shows or prospective clients, and the real-time video encoder makes uploading a breeze while ensuring optimized playback every time. The Infusion 2.0 integration with Adobe Premiere Pro is absolutely amazing, too! Simian is a MUST for anybody needing to collaborate, share and host creative work.
Brian Wright, Editor, Hawthorne
As the industry’s needs and its technology changes, Simian is continually releasing new and updated features to provide the best video sharing and collaboration platform available. Our record of product updates and enhancements far surpasses that of MediaSilo or any other video sharing platform. See what we’ve been up to lately.
Being that a large part my life is making the right reels for the right projects, the analytics on Simian are a true help. It’s become a daily and useful tool to be a better sales rep for my clients, and a better resource for the agencies.
Doug Sherin, Partner/Rep, Options
We regularly talk with leaders in advertising, production and post, to learn more about the problems facing the industry, explore the latest trends and get feedback on what tools help them do their jobs better, letting them focus on being creative. MediaSilo’s strategic focus and attention, meanwhile, has been elsewhere.
Simian's extensive customization options make creating and sharing our work at Gartner/The Devil You Know an absolute breeze. Its unmatched customer service has helped me build and shape complicated client requests with ease.
