Candid Conversations: Paul Matthijs of Hedge →

June 22, 2016 |

In this week’s episode, Josh is on vacation somewhere in beautiful Europe, so Marius and I are joined by Paul Matthijs, CEO of Hedge. Hedge is a wonderful Mac app that lets you easily offload footage from any source to multiple destinations, all while protecting and verifying your data.

Copying large amounts of data through the Finder is not only an inefficient process, it is also unsafe. Finder doesn’t support data verification, and the last thing you need when handling sensitive data is to fall victim to data corruption.

Even if you’ve never been burned yet, you need a way to safely copy your footage from the original capture device to its archival destination. We all do. Data corruption is not an uncertainty: at some point or another, it will happen. The question is, are you ready for it?

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m fascinated by clever apps like Hedge. Paul was kind enough to share with us a bit of the story behind the app’s creation, their pricing strategy, and the philosophy that drives their team.

You can get a free, week-long trial of Hedge at their website, but there’s more. Candid listeners get an exclusive 20% discount when purchasing the app through this link. It’s a terrific deal.

Many thanks to Paul for joining us this week. If you haven’t tried Hedge yet, I can’t recommend it enough.
