CineSync gonged

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

South Australian company Rising Sun Research has been recognised by the Academy (of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences – you know who we mean) for its work in developing the remote collaboration technology cineSync.

Developers Tony Clark, Neil Wilson, Alan Rogers and Rory McGregor have been given a Scientific and Technical Award, to be presented 12 February at a ceremony held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills.

CineSync was developed in 2004 and is now an industry standard tool. It allows multiple copies of a single video to be synchronised in multiple locations distributed via broadband networks. The technology resolves the issue of remote reviews and approvals, allowing directors, visual effects artists, editors, colorists and supervisors to perform live run-throughs of work being carried out in another country, another city or the next studio lot.

The technology has been used in productions including Harry Potter, Iron Man, Avatar and Inception.

“Filmmakers can now choose their collaborators based on talent, rather than proximity,” said Clark, co-founder and director of Rising Sun Research. “The elimination of geographic barriers has been a positive change for artists, post-production facilities and their customers alike.” ®
