Media.net boosts dailies

Co., BT pact to eliminate traditional methods of shipping

HOLLYWOOD — Media.net has expanded the reach of its digital dailies delivery, partnering with BT Broadcast Services to enable film and television productions the ability to send footage internationally via high-speed Internet lines.

Duo tested their new network during the post production of Touchstone Pictures’ upcoming actioner “King Arthur,” for which the pic’s lead visual effects facility Cinesite sent effects sequences from London to editors at producer Jerry Bruckheimer Films in Santa Monica.

Teams used Media.net’s Live Video Collaboration, Video Conferencing and Edit System Dailies services over BT’s fiber network to eliminate the need to ship footage via traditional methods.

Deal expands the reach of Media.net’s offerings to studio and television clients, especially as more of Hollywood’s productions continue to be shot and produced in Canada, Europe and Australia.

“By offering our applications over BT’s network, we can significantly expand the number of media centers around the world that we service,” said Media.net CEO Scott Tolleson.

Roughly 120 film and TV projects have used Media.net’s technology to digitally send video files through clients including MGM, Industrial Light & Magic, Laser-Pacific, Warner Bros. TV and Paramount TV.

“This is the first time we have collaborated to deliver a third party application over our network and is an area where we see tremendous growth potential,” said Bill McNamara, general manager for BTBS, the Americas.
