NAB 2022: New Cloud Connections with Viviana and FDX Partnerships
New partnerships bring new ways to close the gap between production and post. That’s why we’re excited to add two new hardware/software solutions that expand our Camera to Cloud connections to even more (and more affordable) cameras and devices.
Viviana Cloud opens the door for numerous additional audio field recorders to connect to Frame.io, including the Sound Devices 833, PreMix6, and Zoom F8. And the FDX FilmDataBox is an automated hardware/software data management solution that makes it possible to plug in a media card and walk away while your files are backed up, transcoded, and uploaded to your Frame.io project.
Not everyone has access to a field recorder with internet connectivity built in. That’s why the Frame.io integration with Viviana Cloud is such a big deal. In addition to the earlier Sound Devices models, it’s also compatible with sound recording devices from Zoom and Zaxcom.
Now you can upload your production audio files directly to Frame.io without having to transfer the media to a shuttle drive. All you have to do is connect your audio recorder to the Viviana Cloud Box while in file transfer mode, or you could even pop your MicroSD card out and plug it into the Viviana Cloud Box directly. You can now select and upload any audio asset that you can mount on a computer.
In fact, because the Viviana Cloud Box reads all SD cards, you can upload from cameras like GoPros, too—eliminating the need to go through a laptop. What’s most compelling in this use case is that after you’ve shot a full day of skiing or diving, you won’t have to worry about offloading your files later. So go kick back in the lodge or on the beach. It’s all handled.
How many times have you ever wished you could plug in a camera card and walk away while your original camera files are backed up to multiple places, transcoded to your editing codec of choice, and automatically uploaded to your Frame.io project—without having to manage anything?
The FDX box does all of that, and is fully integrated with our robust Camera to Cloud API. Now you can upload your transcoded H.264, DNxHD, AVC-Intra, or ProRes files to Frame.io, directly into our Fixed Folder structure.
Even better, if you have internet upload speeds of 1 Gbps and want to take full advantage of uploading original camera files directly to the cloud, the FDX does that, too. You can get all of your assets into one place in Frame.io and use our Premiere Pro integration (or integrations with Final Cut Pro and DaVinci Resolve) to start cutting together transcoded raw files as soon as a camera mag has been backed up.
This integration saves significant time when it comes to backing up and transcoding, gets files to editorial faster, and makes it possible to share dailies with directors and DPs on set and to any creatives or stakeholders off set (like music composers, producers, and investors).
More connections to the cloud
And so the great democratization continues. With these new integrations, files captured in most sound recorders and cameras can be sent to Frame.io, where they’re safe, secure, and readily accessible to you and your team—wherever they are in the world.
We can’t emphasize enough how important your feedback is to us. As we continue to open up new pathways to cloud-based creation, we hope you’ll continue to share your use cases, impressions, and suggestions with us!
