The world’s leading video review and approval platform Frame.io, has released Frame.io Camera to Cloud (C2C), a secure cloud-based workflow that lets customers instantly upload and stream images from on-set cameras to creative post-production teams anywhere in the world.
Throughout the past 100 years, there have been two fundamental shifts in filmmaking. First, there was the shift from film to tape. Then from tape to digital files. And now, directly from camera to cloud, fundamentally and forever changing the way content will be created.
There has always been a lengthy gap between getting footage from production into post-production. Film needed to be processed or digitized, tapes duplicated, drives backed up and media shipped in order for stakeholders to view work after production has wrapped. This could happen overnight or even take several days.
Frame.io C2C solves this problem by closing the gap between production and post. It works by creating instant proxy uploads so producers, studios, agencies, and editorial can receive and monitor camera files within seconds of ending a shot – even while filming continues on set.
The Camera to Cloud workflow requires a Frame.io C2C-certified device connected to compatible cameras from ARRI, RED, and Panavision.
Once authenticated, certified devices such as the Teradek CUBE 655 and Sound Devices 888 or Scorpio recorders record, encode, and send timecode-accurate H.264 proxy files with matching filename metadata directly to Frame.io via an encrypted and secure connection using LTE, 5G, or WiFi. This allows for near real-time delivery of editable proxy files to a producer, dailies facility, or editor anywhere in the world.
In addition, Frame.io today has launched a new 13-episode C2C training series. Featuring renowned workflow specialist Valentina Vee, along with Michael Cioni, the series teaches customers everything they need to know about Camera to Cloud. The C2C training series is available here.
Frame.io C2C features best-in-class security with full TPN and SOC 2 Type 2 compliance. Created by the MPAA and CDSA, TPN is the global, industry-wide initiative that defines requirements and best practices for protecting content. Combined with rigorous access controls, Frame.io C2C is an incredibly safe way to share media with authorized viewers and collaborators.
Also available now, the new Frame.io Cloud Devices API and C2C-certification program enables hardware and software manufacturers to create their own C2C-compatible products. Frame.io C2C is launching with three groundbreaking partner integrations from Teradek, Sound Devices, and Colorfront, making it compatible with more than a dozen professional camera systems from RED, ARRI, and Panavision.
Frame.io Camera to Cloud is available now at no additional charge for customers with a paid Frame.io account. Additonally, flexible, new one- and three-month enterprise plans let production companies and studios purchase the service they need for the duration of their production.
