Sienna Releases SiennaLink RemoteMonitor

The device is over-the-shoulder and remote editing using SRT.

Drawing on technology from Sienna's Cloud for NDI product, RemoteMonitor provides a simple video link between NLE system and remote editor. Rather than the NLE GUI, RemoteMonitor presents a full raster, full frame rate video stream. Compatible with Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid MediaComposer and any other NDI source, RemoteMonitor is equally happy sending from cloud based systems like AWS and Azure, or simply providing a remote ‘over-the-shoulder’ view for clients of post-production facilities in a different geographic location.

“Remote editing, whether on-prem or in the cloud has become an important part of a new broadcast and post landscape,” said Mark Gilbert, CTO, Sienna Gallery. “Whilst tools like Teradici have allowed editors to control their software smoothly from remote locations, they have always been missing one vital thing - the full raster confidence monitor they depended on in their craft-edit suites. RemoteMonitor restores this capability - delivering a low latency, full raster, full frame rate relay of the NLE’s confidence output.”
