The power of Brevity on Canon DSLR HD workflow
Do you use Canon DSLRs on your HD workflow? Are you spending hours importing footage into Avid or FinalCut for editing?
TranzXL, our service bureau partner had to transcode, transport and import 48 raw camera files from Canon 5D, 7D, and 60D cameras; a total of 9.4GB in 88 minutes of footage.
Utilizing an high-speed data transfer protocol to move the 9.4GB from location to post facility on a 20 Mbps connection, the transfer took 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Utilizing Avid Import to DNX115 MXF 24p on the Avid editing workstation, the import took 2 hours and 27 minutes.
Utilizing FCP log & transfer to import to ProRes 4:2:2, the process took 1hour and 42 minutes.
Utilizing the multi-transcode and accelerated data transfer power of Brevity, the process of transporting these 48 files between two locations over a 20 mpbs WAN, and simultaneous transcoding on the edge to ProRes 4:2:2 and DNX115 MXF 24p was completed in 1 hour and 24 minutes.
5 hours 19 minutes, multiple steps, multiple operators and manual operations.
1 hour 24 minutes, all automated workflow, one person and one button click.
In summary, transport the files to their destination and transcode them to two editing formats in less time that it will take you to just transcode to one format!
