Bruce’s Shorts | 4.16 — The Cloud Makes Advanced Image Processing Accessible

Ever wanted to see the difference between a free 30fps to 25fps conversion and the best that money can buy? By using the cloud you no longer have to spend hundreds of thousands to get the best results. Bruce Devlin talks about what, why and how in this latest “Bruce’s Short”.

With the markets for video content dispersed across the globe, it makes sense to similarly undertake content mastering in a way that is not tied to a single geographic location.

Cloud processing dramatically changes the availablility of tools and processes that can be applied to content.

Cloud workflows allow the right processes on the right content at the right time.

Many tools are available on a pay-as-you-go basis. It is all about extracting the maximum value from the content. The beauty of the cloud is that tools are being developed to loosely couple all the processes that you need for best-of-breed processing.
