Cirrus Media | Super fast digital film delivery Menu

Connecting Film Shoots to Editorial through the cloud

Cirrus Media is a new Cloud-enabled start-up providing the fastest delivery of synced & coloured digital film rushes from location directly into the databases of Avid Media Composers anywhere worldwide, throughout the shoot day

Comprising a mobile data processing cart which we deploy to the film location complete with an Operator, and a computer application that is installed at the Edit location, we use 4G mobile networks and the Cloud to automate the transfer of rushes directly into the Avid bin from location, regardless of Edit location worldwide. All back-ups of original camera files and data processing is done on location, all checksummed, fully secure.
