Automatically transcode 4K HDR footage
Sony Ci is a cloud-based video capture service that can automatically transcode 4K HDR footage. The service can be used for backup, review, and post-production workflows. Sony has partnered with Teradek to provide native integration between Ci and its 4K HDR encoders. The new integration will allow users to upload 4K HDR footage from their cameras directly to Ci. This will allow for streamlined on-set configuration and rapid file transfer.
Ci is compatible with the newest camera models from Sony, including the HDC-F5500, which has a built-in Super 35 mm 4K CMOS global shutter sensor. It also supports the new SMPTE ST 2110 and AMWA NMOS standards. It is also compatible with Sony’s SR Live for HDR workflow, which is ideal for productions that are not using color correction.
Ci provides a cloud-based solution for content acquisition, review, and transformation, and streamlines post-production workflows. Its unique portals allow users to integrate different teams and collaborate in real-time. The service also offers high-speed file transfers, automated transcoding, QC, and logging. Since it launched in 2013, Ci has been used in more than 160 countries.
Ci has a powerful integrated transcoding engine designed for film, broadcast, and web applications. It processes files in high and low-resolution formats, including 4K, and it can even convert files on the fly. By eliminating the need for a separate server or expensive equipment, Ci can help save time and money for filmmakers.
The Ci platform aims to unify disparate systems for larger companies. It includes the Ci Catalog, which streamlines asset management. It also includes a media analytics portal, which supports speech-to-text and object recognition. It also integrates with XDCAM air and Media Backbone NavigatorX to simplify and automate media processes.
Integrate with Teradek’s 4K HDR encoding solutions
Teradek has aligned with the Sony Corporation to provide integrated 4K HDR encoding solutions that support the Sony C3 Portal, a cloud-based production and professional news gathering platform. The Teradek encoders will allow operators to upload and edit content from their Sony camera directly into an editing suite. The Teradek encoders support full media lifecycle recording and full 4K HDR OCF recordings.
Teradek has developed a native integration with Sony’s Ci Media Cloud, which makes it possible to use Sony Ci’s cloud-based platform for review, backup and post-production workflows. The integration is a first step in building a flexible camera-to-cloud workflow that includes Sony’s Ci Media Cloud.
The Teradek Serv 4K integrates with Sony’s Ci via a unique 8-digit code. It offers a local iPad client monitoring solution and is compatible with cameras with a V-mount or Gold mount. It also includes point-to-point decoding and live streaming. It will be available in the second half of 2022.
When it comes to cloud storage, Sony Ci offers some great benefits for the money. It lets you store RAW footage securely and makes it instantly viewable for collaboration. This means that you won’t have to worry about uploading your files, and that you’ll be able to work more quickly and efficiently on them. It also makes managing cloud storage costs simple. This cloud storage solution leverages Sony’s trash and archive policy, which automatically moves content to the best available storage tier.
Sony has a long history with Sony technology, and Bob Sharp, director of engineering for DeSales, visited the company’s booth at the NAB Show and described the use of Ci to create collaborative and cloud archives. He also explained that DeSales plans to update their production facility in Brooklyn, using a new fleet of Sony cameras and connecting them to Ci.
One of the advantages of Ci is that it supports Sony’s X-OCN format, which enables you to reduce the file size without sacrificing image quality. Many popular Sony cameras support this format, and it was originally developed to facilitate 4K and HDR production workflows. It is also compatible with SD and XAVC video formats.
There are two types of subscription plans. The Pro plan is for individual creatives, and the Solo plan is for teams. Prices range from $10 to $25 per month, depending on the amount of storage you need. You can also get a free five-gigabyte account. However, this plan is a bit pricey compared to Adobe Creative Cloud. It costs less than half as much as the 25GB Adobe Creative Cloud subscription.
