Many of you have implemented or are working on building new remote editing workflows. Here are a couple of examples of what we have learned from some of our existing customers on how ContentAgent is helping them streamline their remote editing workflows. 

Editing software is installed on home workstations or laptops

  • ContentAgent is used to take unwieldly raw media, often terabytes in size, and automatically compress them into a more manageable size and format that can be more easily transferred to remote users.
  • Editors will work on these ‘proxies’ and then transfer the finished sequence back to base where it is relinked to the original high resolution media.

Remote connection into an on-site edit station via accelerated access

  • While remote transfer is not necessary in this workflow, conversion is still required since bandwidth limitations prevent high data-rate media from being edited directly over a remote connection. ContentAgent’s watchfolder and automatic workflow system allow non-technical users to transcode and edit in a quick, seamless fashion.

Vecima’s Root6 ContentAgent team is ready to help as you plan and implement your remote workflows.
