Sony Ci to Integrate with Teradek Serv 4K, Prism Flex

The integration will enable any camera used on set, in studio or remotely to upload footage to Sony’s Ci Media Cloud directly from Teradek’s 4K HDR encoders.

Teradek and Sony Electronics have announced that Sony’s Ci Media Cloud will natively integrate with Teradek’s Serv 4K and Prism Flex encoding solutions. 

The integration will enable any camera used on set, in studio or remotely to upload footage to Ci directly from Teradek’s encoders, allowing film and broadcast teams to review, edit and deliver proxy files in a matter of minutes. Content can be clipped, reformatted and shared without ever leaving the cloud. 

Sony’s Ci provides content-acquisition portals, real-time collaboration, automated transcoding, rough-cut editing, QC and archive functionality in a single SaaS offering. This new integration will allow productions to onboard team members without user limits and create a fully customizable target-folder structure. Files can be optionally stored in a customer’s own AWS S3 bucket. Automatic notifications will let teams know when new content is uploaded.

Teradek Serv 4K and Prism Flex will connect to Sony’s Ci with a unique eight-digit code — no additional apps required. Serv 4K also provides local iPad client monitoring and a Gold/V-mount solution for camera-back setups. Prism Flex offers live streaming and point-to-point decoding.

“Sony and Teradek are industry standards in the content-creation and production space,” says David Rosen, vice president of Cloud Applications and Services, Sony Electronics. “Leveraging our combined strengths, this integration will enable a reliable and effortless workflow that allows content creators to work with the tools they love and stay focused on their vision with full confidence in the underlying technology.”

“The future is cloud-based production,” adds Derek Nickell, product manager for Teradek Live Production. 

The new integration will be available this fall.
