We’re excited to have integrated with Frame.io’s cloud-based collaborative editing system, bringing production teams closer to the point of data acquisition by allowing original content or proxy uploading from anywhere with an internet connection.
With the new Frame.io integration, production teams can seamlessly deliver media from the field to Frame.io using the Safekeep App. This unlocks remote collaboration and allows teams to begin editing sooner by giving off-site editors and producers access, no matter where they are. The GNARBOX team has worked directly with Frame.io to tailor the user experience to meet the needs of Frame.io installed base, ensuring the most streamlined upload experience. There have also been extensive speed and reliability tests run, ensuring the integration is optimized to run as fast as possible and with bullet-proof reliability in a variety of network conditions.
The GNARBOX + Frame.io integration enables a variety of workflows, uniquely suited to the needs of several groups, including broadcast/ENG, small production teams and freelance filmmakers.
For Broadcast & Electronic News-Gathering (ENG):
GNARBOX provides a standardized delivery system for original or in-camera recorded proxy content to be sent to Frame.io. This workflow can be leveraged in high bandwidth environments using high speed Ethernet to upload original camera footage. In environments where 4G cellular service is available, teams can easily upload in-camera proxies to the cloud. In ultra-low bandwidth environments where cellular service is all that is available, proxies can be generated on the GNARBOX and uploaded to Frame.io to give editors a head start. Also featured in this release, increased file transfer speeds allow teams to offload a 480GB card to multiple hard drives in under 20 minutes, with options to use xxHash checksums and MHL logs for further asset management.
For Small Production Teams:
When using Frame.io to collaborate with a dispersed team, GNARBOX accelerates the ability to put original or proxy project files into the Frame.io cloud for editors, producers and clients to review and comment. This results in teams being able to receive feedback while still in the field, giving the ability to reshoot any sequences or additional footage that might be needed. Production teams can also take advantage of further time savings provided by increased file transfer speeds, for example offloading a 480GB card to multiple hard drives in under 20 minutes with options to use xxHash checksums and MHL logs for their team’s asset management workflow.
For freelancers who do their own editing, GNARBOX and LumaFusion can be used to create rough cuts of a day, get a step ahead of the editing process and deliver to clients via Frame.io for review. Filmmakers can quickly offload their camera cards to GNARBOX for peace of mind, transcode previews of their footage and then begin working on a rough cut. In LumaFusion, they can assemble a multi-track timeline, apply LUTs and sync audio before delivering a rough cut directly to Frame.io. Clients and producers can then add comments and feedback, all while filmmakers are still in the field.
