Billions of people have found new ways to work remotely and connect with each other.

This is happening at a time when the fundamental technical underpinning of the industry is changing rapidly, adding a significant layer of complication.
As technology continues to progress at a rapid pace, post-production is set to change dramatically. Besides great new software features, compute (and therefore render) power continues to increase with faster processors and more powerful xPUs (GPUs, TPUs, etc.).

As Jai Cave, ENVY’s technical operations director put it, “in a way, we are the cloud to our customers and partners.” ENVY’s use of modern technology, including remote edit capabilities and their expansive use of Signiant Media Shuttle, enables them to collaborate with customers and partners around the world, and made the transition to remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic any easy one. Although project files and media are stored securely on-premises at ENVY’s facilities in London, they are able to collaborate globally thanks to their forward-thinking approach to post production.
Visual Data Media Services provides post-production services, film scanning and transcoding for a wide range of international customers, preparing content for distribution across the world’s premier broadcast channels and digital platforms. For more than two decades, the company has successfully provided everything from ingest and scanning to editing, captioning and localization, growing to become a premier resource for the entire mastering and delivery process. But last year, with a tremendous increase in 4K and ultra high definition (UHD) projects, Visual Data’s systems were struggling to keep up.
