Pacific Post Rolls Out Remote Editorial Collaboration Solution

Pacific Post, a provider of editorial rentals and services, announces PacPost.live, a remote collaboration platform.

Originally built as an internal solution to immediately address the demands for remote work in March due to pandemic lockdowns, Pacific Post is now offering it to the broader industry.

“PacPost.live replicates the cutting room environment, simplifying review and approval between editors, directors, producers, compositors, visual effects teams, music, and sound engineers,” says Raven Peterson, senior engineer, Pacific Post. “It incorporates highly secure, low latency video conferencing and chat capabilities, giving productions the flexibility to quickly provide instant feedback through a single screen.”

A number of editors have given testimony.

Terilyn A. Shropshire, ACE (The Old Guard): “It was not technically challenging for our directors and producers to figure out and begin to use with our crew. We could review footage, get feedback, and do it all in real time. It has been a facilitator for listening, commenting and collaborating with the security that studios demand. I have found it to be an invaluable tool that works intuitively and seamlessly.”

Jon Dudkowski, editor on Star Trek: Discovery: “PacPost.live doesn’t need a rack of gear and was easily set up on my AVID via a home internet connection. I was working remotely almost immediately, which was vital for finishing Season 3. It alleviated my concerns about working virtually. It enables me to jump on a session with my director to review something quickly and efficiently.”

The solution provides a centralized point of contact for project teams. At a competitive price point, the application allows creatives to live stream editing, spotting, ADR, and review sessions from anywhere in the world with full-screen, 1080p quality playback. A chat feature eliminates the need to log in to another application, unifying communications for everyone on the production.

A single license enables an unlimited number of viewers without incurring any additional costs. PacPost.live also can be tapped into a video village for instant collaboration from set as well as connected to the edit room, VFX vendors and sound mixers for real-time remote sessions. The application integrates seamlessly with any Avid or Adobe system and supports the needs of any sized production.
