Instant preview and playback

To make receiving content as straightforward as possible, we’ve made sure:

  • Previews are compatible with all major web browsers and devices – stream or view content on your desktop, laptop, phone or tablet
  • Clients don’t need to download any viewing software
  • A login isn’t required to view the preview
  • You have full control over access, including disabling downloads and password protection.

Generate previews from professional, raw formats

It’s also about making it more convenient for the sender. Because Digital Pigeon supports so many file types you can send your work to clients in just about any file format without having to convert it. Digital Pigeon will convert your raw files into a format that can be previewed by anyone.

Examples include files types native to Final Cut Pro, Pro Tools, Adobe Premiere / After Effects / Audition / Photoshop, etc and even the raw files from a Nikon or Canon DSLR.

List of file formats we support for previews:


Your client can pick and choose

Sometimes your client doesn’t need access to download every single file. Perhaps they only need to pick the best from a bunch and then download their desired files.

With Digital Pigeon and our instant media preview technology, that problem is gone.

Happy clients, happy life.


Get client feedback, seamlessly

If you want to make significant improvements to your workflow, you can enable feedback so that clients can add their comments directly within the media preview.

  • Get comments and approvals on any files
  • Point and click comments on image files
  • Time-coded mark-up for video and audio media

Protect your work with a watermark

Designed to give you extra peace of mind, the watermark plugin allows you to add a logo or copyright notice to your video and image previews. It’s useful for sharing watermarked content with clients and colleagues, without actually altering the original file.

Watermarking is quick and simple to use, and can be easily incorporated into your existing processes like sign-off and delivery.
