It's been a crazy year and the team at Louper would like to say thank you to all the customers using our platform. Here, we’ll recap our favorite moments from the past year and share a sneak peek at what's coming.

The team has grown and we’ve ramped up our commitment in the areas of customer success and marketing. In 2024, expect new and improved setup guides with support for more workflows, personal onboarding calls and more useful content than ever before.

One of our favorite things to promote is our amazing customers. In the last year, we’ve met some super talented editors, colorists and producers who have implemented Louper into their daily workflow. If you’ve missed any of these profiles, below are a few of our favorites. And if you’d like to be featured in a case study, please contact us!

Major features released in 2023

Based on your feedback, we've added numerous features and improvements, making Louper even more useful in various streaming and collaboration workflows. Whether you are working independently, at a boutique studio, or even at an enterprise sized company, our goal is to provide what you need. Here’s what we released:

Teams

We added support for Teams, allowing you to more easily share access to rooms and filespaces with your coworkers and clients. It includes role-based permissions for various teammates, enhancing project management and team efficiency.

Studio Tier

We launched the Studio Tier of Louper in July 2023 to great uptake and feedback. Designed to cater to the needs of boutique facilities right up to large enterprise-sized companies, the Studio tier of Louper enables the creation and management of multiple rooms, custom branding, client-side watermarking, multiple livestreams per room, and finer grained control over teammate and asset permissions.
