Teradek and Frame.io have joined forces on a camera to cloud (C2C) editorial workflow that bridges on-set camera capture with post production NLE systems.
According to the two companies, the new workflow will “forever transform the way in which production and editorial interact.”
The Teradek Cube 655 video encoder can capture colour-accurate proxy files directly from camera video feeds and upload them into the Frame.io cloud system via WiFi, LTE, or 5G.
When connected with a C2C-compatible camera such as RED, ARRI, and Sony, the Cube 655 utilises the camera’s Record Trigger to capture and store colour-accurate H.264 (AVC) proxies in manageable file sizes, which exactly match the filename and timecode of the massive original camera files, said the two companies. When stop-record is triggered at the end of a take, Frame.io will automatically upload Cube 655’s proxy file into their cloud storage system via proprietary link over WiFi or compatible cellular modem–such as the Teradek Node LTE Modem.
Because proxies are uploaded into the cloud at a continuous rate, post production can generate dailies and editors can begin work on the NLE timeline almost as soon as a scene is completed anywhere in the world. The Cube 655’s ability to store the recorded proxies locally means productions are able to upload their proxies later.
