Indie release Boon, a Western filmed on location in Washington State, USA was shot using virtual production techniques. This ensured the number of on-site production staff were kept to a minimum. The Iconik MAM was used to manage footage during the project, enabling workflow continuity and remote collaboration.
Derek Presley, Director, Boon commented: “Integrating Iconik into our workflow on this film was a game-changer. It allowed me to easily review footage on-set with the cinematographer and change the shooting schedule accordingly. The ability to access and share raw footage almost immediately, allowed us to make adjustments to the production in ways that can really save a film.”
Parham Azimi, CEO, Iconik, added: “We have seen an increase in demand for remote production solutions, especially over the last year with COVID creating barriers for a traditional approach to film-making. Iconik is an easy-to-use platform that enables teams to continue creating, editing, and distributing media content despite the challenges of the pandemic. It is designed to enable seamless, secure management and distribution of media files regardless of location.”

IP is well known and appreciated for its flexibility, scalability, and resilience. But there are times when the learning curve and installation challenges a complete ST-2110 infrastructure provides are just too great.
We live in fascinating times: increasingly, we live in the era of cloud-based broadcast operations.
Moving to IP is allowing broadcasters to explore new working practices and mindsets. Esports has grown from IT disciplines and is moving to broadcast and has the potential to show new methods of working.
Building optimized systems that scale to meet peak demand delivers broadcast facilities that are orders of magnitude more efficient than their static predecessors. In part 2 of this series, we investigate how this can be achieved.
IP is delivering unprecedented flexibility and scalability for broadcasters. But there is a price to pay for these benefits, namely, the complexity of the system increases significantly as we add more video and audio over IP.
