Power Station Embraces IP-Cross Connect

Tue, 03/23/2021 - 11:39 -- Nick Dager

As the industry continues to transition towards IP-based solutions, many integrators have found themselves limited by budget-related restrictions. Diversified, a global technology solutions provider, recently ran into this challenge when it came to a project at BerkleeNYC, a campus-based recording studio formerly known as Avatar Studios. In the process of building a cost-effective IP network for the school’s renowned Power Station recording studio, Diversified turned to TSL Products to provide an IP routing interface that marries TSL’s virtual control processor, the GTP-V1, and its renowned Virtual Panels into a solution that TSL has coined, IP-Cross Connect.

Is Remote Post-Production Here to Stay?

Tue, 03/09/2021 - 10:07 -- Nick Dager

MTI Film in Hollywood is expanding its Remote Data Center, boosting capacity and adding new, cloud-based services, as editing teams increasingly embrace remote work, not merely as a stopgap measure during the pandemic, but as the new and more efficient paradigm for post-production. MTI Film CEO Larry Chernoff says that editors who began working remotely out of necessity are now doing so by choice. “Editors like the practical benefits of being able to work from home or other remote sites,” he said. “The pandemic was the catalyst, but remote work is quickly becoming the preferred choice for editing because it improves productivity and flexibility, and it enhances lifestyles. Based on the experience thus far, we believe the future will be a hybrid of remote and on-premises operations supported by universal connectivity.”

The Evolution of Media Creation

Mon, 02/08/2021 - 11:25 -- Spencer Stephens

In the MovieLabs white paper The Evolution of Media Creation, we outlined a vision for implementing true cloud-native production workflows. In that vision media production moves outside of the security perimeters that protect individual facilities such as post-production and VFX companies and becomes a virtualized security system to protect all of those involved in production workflows. These workflows transcend organizations, and simply stated, protecting them requires a new approach to security.

The Cloud is Here. Now What?

Wed, 01/20/2021 - 13:07 -- Barbara Lange

For the past few years, it was a safe bet that the technology priorities for chief technology officers in broadcast and other professional media verticals involved a move to the cloud, however where it fell on the list of priorities varied widely. With so many media and technology professionals “finding the time” to move their infrastructure to the cloud, it was happening on the weekend, in the evenings, during quiet days in the office, and for some, it was little more than a hobby. The pandemic changed priorities heavily by demanding a development that has been a long time coming—a complete move to the cloud.
