Visual Effects and Post-Production
Talk to us at SMPTE about scalable solutions for editing, animation, motion graphics, VFX, grading and finishing. We're experts in rolling out solutions for individual artists or for cooperative workgroups working within a studio or located remotely, based around solutions from Avid, Adobe, Autodesk, The Foundry and others.
NAS, SAN, Cloud? Ethernet, fibre, iSCSI? Avid ISIS, DDP, DVS, Quantum? What about backup and archive? There are many options to consider and each has implications for specific environments and desired workflows. Contributors, editors and managers need to work together - seamlessly sharing the same media assets within the facility or remotely, to output projects faster using an optimised, end-to-end content creation workflow. Learn how to free your organisation from masses of external disks, duplicated media and lost productivity.
Wrangling and managing data workflows in digital media production environments is critical to productivity and quality. The tools and techniques are changing rapidly and SMPTE provides an ideal opportunity to check out the latest that apply to your needs. We have the knowledge to help you understand how developments like Avid's Media Central / Media Composer | Cloud and Adobe's Anywhere platforms can integrate with your environments.
Asset and Production Management
It's all about the content... Learn about the project management and pipeline tools that help creative studios track, schedule, review, collaborate, and manage and re-use their digital assets. We have both skill and experience implementing Autodesk's new Shotgun, Cantemo Portal, Metus DAM, Avid Interplay Production, eMAM and other solutions to suit specific needs.
IP Media Delivery and Big Data
The move to IP-based delivery of content has changed the face of the television, film and broadcast industries worldwide with the ability to acquire content anywhere and distribute it everywhere. Tools from Aspera and others are making new workflows and media distribution models available that can fundamentally change the way organisations operate and introduce new business models and opportunities. Talk to us at SMPTE about how these can be utilised in your business or application.
