COVID-19 prompted media and entertainment into a season of "forced innovation." Remote solutions for creative professionals had long been considered a luxury for those with the power to work from home, but when the pandemic hit, that luxury became a ubiquitous necessity. However, with shows moving into the home and relying on consumer WiFi, hackers took note. Prior to COVID-19, complex media security solutions were generally focused on the facility side alone, and DigitalFilm Tree—having spent the last several years deploying cloud-based, network infrastructure for remote workflows (including Dailies, Editorial, Color, VFX and Online)—found themselves uniquely poised to quickly help others catch up to the urgent challenges of remote security.
Join host Guy Finley as he interviews CEO Ramy Katrib and COO Nancy Jundi of DigitalFilm Tree to discuss their secure cloud infrastructure, remote services, and how their current shows used their technology to finish their seasons and get back to production safely.
Since 1999, DigitalFilm Tree (DFT) has been the leader in democratizing innovative technology for production and post, offering educational resources and bleeding edge solutions to meet M&E's biggest challenges.
