Qvest Media relies on a multi-cloud solution for the cloud infrastructure. Both the Swiss provider HIAG Data as well as Amazon Web Services (AWS) are used. Specifically, the two HTML5-based web applications run in a private cloud of HIAG Data, while the video material to be processed is stored and held available with both HIAG Data and the AWS cloud platform for redundancy reasons.
Since “The Taste” is filmed in Munich at Redseven, but post-production takes place in Hürth, the nobeo management team decided on a decentralised solution in the cloud. The advantage: while filming is in progress, the compressed and unsorted raw video material is streamed to the cloud, where it is transcribed and enriched with metadata in near real-time by the local nobeo post-production team in Hürth. Previously, the material had to be sent by courier, meaning that review and preparation could only begin the following day at the earliest.
Marking the edit points where interesting scenes occur also happens in the cloud. An AAF format timeline file that can be used with Avid editing systems for the final editing of high-resolution raw material is created at the press of a button.
Accordingly, Qvest Media and HMS are already working on the next expansion stage of the cloud solution: the integration of artificial intelligence. This will automatically perform transcriptions after the learning phase.
