​Elements Launch Cloud Feature

Elements plans to present a cloud option at IBC. Embedded in its Media Library, the feature allows all connected workstations to share assets through a private cloud, directly from within Elements’ GUI.

“Following our basic principle to make processes safe, simple and fast for the user, we have managed to create our new feature in the most efficient fashion,” said André Kamps, CEO. “Instead of uploading the big hi-res file, our Cloud feature uses the smaller Proxy-version of a clip, reducing upload times significantly. Now entire projects can be stored, shared and recalled with just a keystroke, making collaboration from anywhere convenient and easy.”

The web portal allows the Cloud to be accessible directly from within the Elements system via various applications including Elements Filemanager, Media Library and Task Manager. Customers can direct clients to view clips on an individually branded Cloud-based Portal, giving the impression of an on-premise, self-hosted storage. Identical to the use of the Media Library as a communication portal, viewers accessing the assets through the cloud are invited to leave comments and even drawings on the image. All annotations are integrated and synced to Elements Media Library.

The new feature will become part of Elements’ workflow management tool-set that provides a GUI for professionally managing, presenting and sharing media assets. This web-based workflow enhancement feature set is embedded in Elements appliances ONE, NAS, GATEWAY, SAN and the mobile appliance CUBE.

The optional Media Library, MAM tool is compatible with the main professional editing application available today, enabling operators to transfer entire projects from the Media Library to any other editing application. The Media Library also fully supports Avid bin-locking and project sharing.
