Teradek and Sony are working together to provide productions in the film and broadcast markets with greater flexibility in camera-to-cloud workflows.
Sony’s Ci Media Cloud will natively integrate with Teradek’s 4K HDR encoding solutions, Serv 4K and Prism Flex.
Features available as part of the integration include:
- Accurate Metadata – Timecode and file name sunk proxies or high-quality 4K HDR OCF recordings
- Real-time Editing – Teams can upload 4K HDR files automatically and edit frame-accurate proxies immediately without waiting for dailies
- Collaborative Workflows – Complete the full media lifecycle: from studio-to-cloud or set-to-cloud for post-production, collaboration, and review, to catalog management and archiving
- Connected Ecosystem – Teradek is establishing itself as the onramp to the cloud – integrating siloed workflows by providing visibility throughout the entire imaging pipeline
According to the companies, this integration means that any camera used on-set, in-studio, or remotely will be able to upload footage to Ci directly from Teradek’s encoders.
Sony’s Ci provides content acquisition portals, real-time collaboration, automated transcoding, rough cut editing, QC, and archive functionality in a single SaaS offering. Integrating it with Serv 4K and Prism Flex will provide the fastest on-set configuration on the market, said the companies.
It will also allow productions to create a fully customisable target folder structure, giving teams the freedom to work the way they like. Files can be optionally stored in a customer’s own AWS S3 bucket so they always maintain control of their content.
“Sony and Teradek are industry standards in the content creation and production space,” said David Rosen, VP of cloud applications and services, Sony Electronics. “Leveraging our combined strengths, this integration will enable a reliable and effortless workflow that allows content creators to work with the tools they love and stay focused on their vision with full confidence in the underlying technology.”
“The future is cloud-based production,” added Derek Nickell, product manager for Teradek Live Production. “We are positioning ourselves to accelerate the market towards collaborative remote production.”
