LOS ANGELES — Sohonet (www.sohonet.com), a specialist in connectivity, media services and network security for the media and entertainment industry, has partnered with Moxion (www.moxion.io) and its HDR review platform. The partnership broadens the range of remote collaboration solutions Sohonet can now offer the production, post production and visual effects communities.
Moxion’s Immediates is a platform for reviewing footage in HDR minutes after filming on the same devices as Sohonet’s ClearView Flex. This includes Apple TV, iPads and laptops. On-set creatives can start on mark-ups immediately and give off-set creatives the same near-realtime HDR access to the content. Additionally, editorial and VFX teams can download the high-resolution proxy to begin working, eliminating the need to wait for it to arrive at a later time after being transcoded for a dailies workflow.
The partnership provides the production, post and visual effects communities with a distinct set of tools designed to enable both synchronous and asynchronous remote review. For review discussions that depend on realtime iteration and response, Sohonet ClearView Flex provides teams with a high-quality, secure solution. Moxion Immediates provides an equivalent experience for offline review.
“Moxion is a great match for Sohonet,” says Sohonet CEO, Chuck Parker. “They understand the unique challenges that productions face, and share our vision: to revolutionise the way storytellers create content by making collaboration seamless and more secure. While realtime review is a key component to the production workflow, often the whole team can’t meet for a live review session. Partnering with Moxion gives our customers space to review content in their own time.”
“Offering Sohonet’s realtime tool, Clearview Flex, with our offline review technology makes perfect sense,” adds Hugh Calveley, CEO of Moxion. “The ability to harness the power of live review and incorporate it, with the convenience of offline collaboration, will be an extremely valuable toolkit for filmmakers.”
“Right now productions are having to navigate a new normal due to COVID-19, with reduced numbers on-set, additional location challenges and more distributed team members,” Parker adds. “Sohonet and Moxion are perfectly placed to help support them from green-light to wrap.”
