Moving Oscar-Winning Film Production to the Cloud

April 24, 2019
Teradici

Teradici is the creator of the PCoIP remoting protocol technology and Cloud Access Software, the leading solution for a cloud-ready future. The company, founded in 2004, is focused on its core mission of seamless delivery of workstations and applications for end-users.

Our partner Avid, kicked off 2019 with customers dominating the 91st Annual Academy Awards. Every nominee and award winner in the categories for best picture, sound mixing, sound editing, and film editing were crafted using Avid’s creative audio and video tools – including the winning films, Bohemian Rhapsody and Green Book. 

Media Composer in the cloud

Driven by insatiable consumer demand for creative content at high production quality, the media and entertainment (M&E) industry is constantly looking for ways to better meet this need. As a result, many production companies and creative agencies are looking to virtualized environments and technologies because of its known benefits of workflow efficiency, freedom to work remotely, transfer of CAPEX to OPEX costs, and many more.  Together, Teradici and Avid help address this opportunity, working together to make it easy for customers to procure, securely access, and use Avid’s Media Composer in the cloud.

This combined solution of Cloud Access Software and Media Composer:

…enables creative professionals to run their workflows in virtualized infrastructure enabling effective content creation, collaboration and delivery without the security risks, inefficiencies and compliance challenges of locally managed assets.

- David Smith, CEO, Teradici

There’s no denying that accessibility with the help of the cloud and our solution, Cloud Access Software, is a consideration for many companies in M&E. At the recent Avid Connect, an annual event for M&E business, technology, and design professionals, cloud was a key focus and attendees had the chance to see how Cloud Access Software, a secure remoting application, enables a highly-interactive performance that rivals a local workstation. In fact, better.

Teradici’s John McVay participated in the Avid Connect panel ‘Remote Possibilities: Editing in Virtualized and Remote Environments’. Check out experts from the panel session:

 

 

So back to the partnership – Teradici Cloud Access Software can be purchased alongside Avid Media Composer through Avid’s reseller network. To do so, customers choose the Media Composer | Cloud VM product which is essentially a new product license to use a virtualized version of the application. It’s the same award-winning tool that many in Hollywood have come to rely on for film, commercial, and TV editing – but made accessible using a workstation, laptop, or zero client. Cloud Access Software makes it possible for users to have secure, remote access to the application anywhere, anytime.

With Avid’s efforts to increase the accessibility of its creative tools, perhaps we will see even more of its customers dominating the Oscars next year. Right? 😊
