Until now all that conversations happened in meetings, calls, emails… far from the content. AVA makes video collaboration, review and approval as simple as pie. Now you can add accurate comments, drawings and voice notes directly over your media, and all those comments are in collaborative sticky notes (including a sort of whatsapp chat).
