Frame.io Demos ‘Ultra-Fast’ Uploads And Real-Time Video Collaboration
Frame.io’s Watch Folders for macOS is said to deliver indestructible uploading.
The latest version of Frame.io offers enterprise-grade security features, having recently received SOC2 Type 1 and GDPR compliance; support for new formats and high-resolution images via Image Review tool; and up to 100X faster uploading speeds thanks to Watch Folders for macOS.
States Emery Wells, co-founder and CEO, Frame.io. “At NAB, we teased new features coming to the platform; at IBC, we’re delivering on our promise to build the industry’s most comprehensive and secure cloud-based video review and collaboration tool on the market.”
In July, Frame.io received SOC2 TYPE 1 compliance, after an audit process that evaluated Frame.io against service controls derived from three key trust principles of SOC2 – security, availability, and confidentiality. In addition, it adds Visual Watermarking and Asset Lifecycle Management, which expand security management to front-line workflows.
With Asset Lifecycle Management, the system will automatically delete old assets on a cadence defined by users. Admins and team managers can set a limit on the number of days a given asset will be retained.
Explains Wells, “Developed in coordination with Turner Broadcasting, this tool was built for the enterprise admin that finds themselves removing assets from Frame.io constantly, whether that be for security, for better organization, or for increased storage capacity. Lifecycle Management enables Turner, who has hundreds of teams working on nearly 4,000 projects, to continue to produce great content and have a streamlined process to manage storage without potential cost overruns.”
Watch Folders for macOS
The new Watch Folders for macOS is said to deliver indestructible uploading, enabling creatives to send raw assets, dailies, and in-progress edits to Frame.io for feedback and approval while preserving folder structure. The macOS menu bar app allows users to pair a local folder with a destination folder, then render files right from Apple, Adobe, DaVinci Resolve, Avid, On-Set Dailies and Assimilate Scratch.
“The Watch Folders ensure assets are securely uploaded, whether you’re uploading overnight, on a flight, at a coffee shop, or on location, giving creatives the peace of mind to work under the toughest deadlines and security measures,” says Emery. “The companion app supports multi-gigabit upload speeds, allowing users to upload one-hundred gigabytes of media in as little as 13.3 minutes, folder structure fully intact.”
New features, available now, to be shown at IBC include:
Image Review. Brings all of the product's review and collaboration capabilities to more types of visual media like photos, illustrations, and graphic design. The tool supports high-res images rendering up to 8K resolution previews with the ability to pan, zoom, loupe, and annotate.
Asset Search. The search bar now supports project and asset search.
View History. See who’s viewed an asset and when they viewed it. Get more details about an asset’s view history by clicking into the team member profile images.
Presence. Users have a real-time indication of when a teammate is viewing the same asset as them.
