“We’re delighted to team with Aframe. They’ve enhanced our interactions with global vendors and suppliers by making A+E Networks’ content more easily accessible, and improving the efficiency of our post-production process.”
"Aframe wasn’t the first time we had tried a video management platform, we had previously tried various file hosting and transfer services, but couldn’t cope with the amount of content we were creating or the complex functionality we required. However, with Aframe, all of the HD media is ingested directly from the camera in its native format and uploaded straight into a secure cloud storage facility through accelerated UDP file transfer technology – saving time and courier charges. This was key for us when it came to the decision process as it enables the team to reliably upload and handle content on a daily basis from remote locations without any loss in quality."
"Aframe provides a variety of benefits, but most of all I can confidently say it makes our sales processes shorter. The ease of getting the decision making materials in front of the client definitely helps accelerate the process and takes my mind off having to worry about a complicated process of uploading, downloading and file sizes. It’s a great platform and I would definitely attribute the ease and efficiency of Aframe towards helping me achieve my targets. I would certainly recommend Aframe to other organizations."
"Aframe’s private cloud solution provides an easy mechanism for making content easily accessible for people who need it immediately, in a self-service model. It’s a new paradigm shift that will save FOX time and money."
“Aframe centralizes everything, and because it’s designed specifically for video, it gives us a more efficient process overall, with the ability to create Collections and keep comments tied to timecode. Storage is reliable and accessible. Working in the cloud means that we can work with any editor or crew, anywhere in the world, and they can all interact with projects throughout the process. Overall, having footage centrally accessible immediately, to everyone who needs to be involved, has totally transformed the way we work.”
"What first attracted us to Aframe was its flexibility and ease of use; we needed to get multiple formats to staff for review and approval, wherever they were as quickly as possible."
"Collaboration is really important within the team and for me that is the main benefit of using Aframe. The platform is making our processes more efficient, which will save time and money; but it’s also about giving us more time to produce interesting, innovative content that will support our fundraising and campaigning efforts.
Before we engaged Aframe, if we wanted to innovate or embrace new technologies we would have to replace the equipment we already had in place. Now we can innovate with Aframe and embrace the new functionality as and when it is rolled out. The cloud makes this so much easier for us.”
"With over three months' worth of filming on location in the UK and Morocco, Aframe gave us a platform that let all our production team keep in touch with the latest cuts and promos each day - across our entire workflow.
We appreciated the added peace of mind that Aframe provided in letting us control who could view content, and during specified time windows - while still being easy to use for everyone. That includes the edit assistant doing the uploading and sharing, to the producers and directors viewing content on mobile devices."
“We use a number of different cloud media storage services, but they’re limited in capacity and functionality. That we can quickly transfer rushes with Aframe, while providing a secure backup and allowing the rushes to be viewed and logged, ticks a lot of boxes for us.
We have found Aframe to be secure and easy to manage, with full-resolution capabilities that we have not found elsewhere. As an editor by background, I appreciate how Aframe allows you to organise media without doing the edit for you in a way that limits you. I also like how it allows your team to access full-resolution media wherever and whenever they need it, while still being able to generate viewing proxies for easy review by others."
“Aframe helped us to deliver Ultimate Airport Dubai, season two on time, on schedule and on budget. We were also able to achieve significant cost savings and the process was much more efficient, compared to the previous slower process that involved content being couriered from location. We were able to receive footage quickly, which gave us more time to compile stories and feedback to the shoot, and because the files were always uploaded rapidly, it meant that the post production house had more time to spend working on the content, ultimately resulting in a better show.
All in all we were able to save 20 weeks on the edit, equating to about two weeks per episode, which is a phenomenal saving.”
"Aframe saved us a ridiculous amount of time, about 1 week in 7, and enabled an immediate, almost live collaboration between producers in different offices that you could never get if we used a traditional on-premise computing network. Security can be a concern with a cloud solution, but with Aframe, only those we designate can review content – and no one can view our animations – even Aframe."
"We started the FOX Sports build with a clean slate which meant we could select the very best of breed technology that best suited our rapid workflow philosophy"
“Aframe presented a much better way for us to work than our previous dailies review process. Now, by using a secure cloud approach to store and share content, we’ve dramatically improved the speed of review, and made the entire process painless yet secure.”
"Aframe was a great addition on this production. It’s so easy to use that the team enjoyed using it throughout the shoot. For me, we didn’t have to move the edit, saving us approximately 15% on the overall post-production budget.”
"Aframe is a great way to view footage quickly and efficiently. The fact we can view on any device, from iPhone to iPad to desktop, whilst ensuring all footage remains secure is really reassuring and beneficial to production."
"The strength of Aframe as a back-up is that we know we never have to worry about drive failure – and it happens. [With Aframe] we have a secure back-up in 3 locations, and because it’s in the cloud, it’s available whenever and wherever we need it. Using Aframe to store all our tapeless media also saved us on buying another 3TB hard drive.
The key advantages that Aframe has over other services are security, ease of use for the viewer and the option to offer material for streaming and downloading – whichever works best. We’ve found Aframe to be robust and reliable, as well as secure and easy to use, so I think we will be making even greater use of it on future productions.”
"We were looking for a time-efficient and cost-saving tapeless workflow. The great thing about Aframe is that it creates proxies from hi-res files for clients to view our work immediately before we send out the final version for broadcasters to download the full original format. This secure private cloud network is a smarter way for us to upload large files and manage our online archive easily."
“The ability for the production team to start working on the footage right away was amazing because we could start organising the footage as it was ingested at Aframe's ingest point in London. Once this footage has been combined with the logging, we could find everything we needed in an instant. The time and budget we saved during this pre-edit phase was massive.”
“Aframe costs us one-tenth of the purchase of a typical media asset management system, and lets our project teams easily access and create content from anywhere and everywhere in the world – something typical MAM systems can’t do. It’s one of the smartest technology decisions we’ve made.”
"Normally on a hidden camera show like this I'd paper-edit the clips and then ask an editor to put it in a sequence for me to see if it looks good. With Aframe, I can rough-cut the clips myself, organise them into a quick assembly and then watch them back to back.
If I don't think the clips look right together, I can simply drag and drop the clips until I'm happy with it. Aframe makes this early editing part of the process easy and simple."
“The level of efficiency Aframe delivered compared to our very well-practiced workflow has genuinely impressed us. After three seasons of Sporty, we were skeptical as to how much time Aframe could actually save us, but we were pleasantly surprised.
Not only did the show get produced faster than ever, we got to spend additional time in the production cycle on our storytelling. Creativity is what it’s all about – and because we had more time to be creative, I felt we produced our best series yet.”
