Cloud Networking And Computing Updates Cont.
– you are free to edit and interact with your content from wherever you need to be. The change is as significant as the introduction of the mobile phone – with QTube you stay connected to your content when you are out of the office; you are never out of touch.”

More Specifically:
• An editor in the headquarters studios can build a timeline composed of content stored in any regional office, bureau or even an outside broadcast unit; • A producer in a regional studio can take that timeline and re-purpose it for local consumption, without repeating all the work; • Primary viewing, shot selection and even finished editing of live recordings in an OB van can be completed from headquarters, or a regional studio, or even a hotel room; • An overseas correspondent can complete a news story with local ENG, plus archive content from a regional studio and an animated graphic created in the HQ studios – and file the completed timeline ready for broadcast; • A producer can work from home, with no loss of access to media, wherever it is; • People can collaborate, sharing media and creative decisions wherever they are; • Through the API, the processes behind QTube can be automated. Avid’s Interplay Sphere, announced

qtube overview

at NAB 2012, is also designed to offer internet-based collaborative production and post-production. Avid’s claimed feature set: • Facilitating secure access to every digital media asset within the enterprise, giving reporters and producers the footage, graphics, animations, and audio sources they need to create better stories, more quickly; • Providing increased automation capabilities through further adoption of digital asset- based workflows over IP; • Creating a perfect platform to meet evolving delivery channels with real-time and on- demand encoding, transcoding, and streaming of digital media; • Creating highly relevant and customisable viewer experiences with extended availability of content provided

by a centralised repository of assets and their associated metadata; • Helping target, repackage, and repurpose the right media based on greater intelligence about the media, its metadata, and customer demand.

Networks
Panasonic announced at the same event that it is teaming with Aframe to create the Panasonic Production Network (PPN), a cloud video production network that allows content producers to upload and view high-quality video from dedicated cloud servers. Panasonic has targeted New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta, Miami, Boston and Dallas as the first cities to locate its upload centres. Each of these links to Aframe’s cloud video production servers in the US. Panasonic anticipates that its first upload centre will be operational by late May or early June. There will be plenty of competition. California-based WeVideo reported in April that it has secured $19 million to develop its cloud-based collaborative video editing system. Founded in 2011 by Norway-based Inspera, WeVideo is already providing online video learning for students. It is now bringing collaborative video editing to the newly released Google Drive cloud storage and collaboration service. The integrated WeVideo app allows subscribers to edit the content they have stored in Google Drive. Google Drive is available with 5GB of storage for free and the option to purchase additional storage.

demagnetisation inherent in earlygeneration analogue and digital recording devices will recognise the advantages of cloud-based data storage as a backup support for local archiving. Data stored online can be accessed from anywhere and, with the right safeguards, should be less at risk of theft or mechanical damage than any conventional storage medium. Latest-generation high-capacity storage chips incur the extra risk of being dangerously easy to mislay. (I shall not forget pushing an SD card absent-mindedly into the adjacent vertical CD/DVD drive of my iMac before discovering that Apple had fortunately made allowance for this.) In a large organisation or even a small one requiring simultaneous access to content from members of a production team, cloud-based storage offers an additional layer which would sit in very neatly alongside existing locally networked data archives.

Software Services
Cloud-based on-demand software (so-called software-as-a-service or SaaS) is a very different kettle of fish. The evident popularity of lowcost software promoted by Apple for its iPad tablet computers leads naturally in the direction of SaaS but it will have to contend with the natural human urge to retain a healthy degree of independence. It must also compete in a world of ever declining local storage media costs along with consistently increasing data capacity for a given size of device. Look again at the Quantel diagram and you will notice that the cloud element is just one of several storage options. Long may it remain that way. ■
