On Apr 26, we visited Cooliris, Inc. in Palo Alto, which was founded in January, 2006. It develops products, like Media browser plug-in, mobile app, gallery builder. Cooliris’s goal is to bring immersive and engaging online media experience to users.
We got a warm reception by Soujanya Bhumkar and his team once we arrived there. Soujanya Bhumkar is the founder and CEO in Cooliris. Prior to Cooliris, Soujanya also co-founded Tamarind, a proﬁtable company in the business of human performance evaluation. He was a fully experienced entrepreneur.
On that day, Soujanya Bhumkar shared his new products with us. All of us got a good opportunity to touch and play around these exciting products through iPad or iPhone. Here are 3 main products Soujanya shared with us:
- The first one is Cooliris 3D wall. This is the earliest product Cooliris released and the most well-known one in the industry. It displays the photos and videos from the Web or desktop in a 3D wall, which is fast and effortless way to browse pictures and videos from different platforms, like Facebook, Google, YouTube, Flickr, and more.
- The second one is Adjitsu which provides agencies and advertisers tools to make three-dimensional animated advertisement in mobile apps. When you tilt the iphone, the product in the ad will follow your movement to display the features in detail.
- The last one is LiveShare which is a free real-time media sharing application for mobile and web that makes it easy for groups to share privately or publicly. For example, LiveShare will capture and reexperience the night out with friends, coordinate weekend plans, keep in touch with family, or exchange lovey-dovey notes with the one you love.
Before we were leaving, Soujanya Bhumkar gave us a very interesting quiz – everyone was invited to come up some sentences to describe LiveShare. The great creative thinkers would get the prize of Amazon Gift Card. In the end Sophie got the first prize, and her lines was
“Share Your Channel, Join My Life.”
Overall, we did have a wonderful time at Cooliris, an innovative, energetic and super COOL startup company.
