disguise is launching a new suite of cloud-ready applications for the media and entertainment industry.
disguise Cloud is built to enable end-to-end remote collaboration across any M&E production, said the company.
“Our goal is to simplify the creative process and allow artists to tell inspiring stories,” said Niall Thompson, head of cloud solutions at disguise. “After years of helping creatives leverage real-time concert visuals for artists like J Balvin and Guns N’ Roses; LED volumes for the biggest film and VFX studios; and live broadcast graphics on Eurosport, MTV, and ITV; we know that ambitious productions aren’t possible without remote teams who can work together.”
The solution will provide teams with all the apps required to store, preview and review high-resolution media, tag content and leave comments on projects in the cloud, said the company.
It will also ensure media files can be shared more securely with support for built-in passphrase protection, multi-factor authentication, expiration links and watermarking, although that is not available at launch.
Another major application available on release is disguise Drive – a web-based storage space which allows teams to upload and review all their project media securely. disguise Drive supports images, video and 3D file formats including .fbx, glTF and .obj and has Smart Folders to organise files by type, recently added, or any other custom parameter in just a few clicks, said the company.
”I’m incredibly proud to open this new chapter in the evolution of disguise, said disguise CEO Fernando Küfer. “Seeing the integration of the next generation of tools enabling our community to work together from anywhere while also expanding the reach of disguise to new stakeholders, enables us to open up the future of collaboration for the M&E industry. The range of tools we’re introducing in our Cloud strategy demonstrates the maturity of disguise as an integrated platform.”
