CBS News, WGBH, Sony Pictures to Talk Cloud Solutions April 30

Remote work has upended many things for some media and entertainment companies. But long before the ongoing pandemic, some early adopters were already using cloud-based tech solutions to make their production workflows more efficient.

On April 30, three media companies and customers of Sony Ci media cloud platform will be on hand to share the ways they use Ci’s real-time LiveSession feature for remote collaboration, in the webinar “How CBS News, WGBH and Sony Pictures Solved Real-Time WFH Collaboration.”

For CBS News, post-production teams turned to Ci and the cloud to manage final cuts.

WGBH in Boston and the producers of “Frontline” and “NOVA” sought — and got — a “screening room” solution to reduce cross-continent travel, allowing executive producers to virtually review cuts with directors and editors.

Sony Pictures Entertainment turned to Ci to give productions flexible workspaces, where content can be uploaded, previewed and securely shared between trusted members, and external collaborators.

Ci’s LiveSession feature inside VideoReview allows any number of participants view the same footage with synched playback so they can seamlessly and securely collaborate in real time even when teams are scattered around the world.

Adam Goldfried, post-production manager for CBS News, Tim Mangini, senior director of production technology for WGBH’s production group, Glen Marzan, VP of digital content technologies for Sony Pictures Entertainment, and David Rosen, VP of cloud applications and services for Sony Imaging Products and Solutions, Americas, will be on hand for the free webinar.
