ACS moves into Silver Trak's Media room

SYDNEY, 1 June 2016 – The Australian Cinematographers Society (ACS) has become the latest high profile organisation to invest in Silver Trak’s Media Room smart media storage, management and delivery service. The society, of which Silver Trak is a Platinum Sponsor, will now have access to customised Media Rooms for each of its state branches and a National ACS Media Room.

ACS national president Ron Johanson explained, “This is a wonderful and very natural step for the ACS as the possibilities and opportunities when using Media Room are endless. As Media Room is so instantly accessible we will be using it for a wide range of things including sharing content between committee members such as awards submissions that were previously handed around on hard drives, archiving precious ACS footage and viewing pre-screeners. All at the simple touch of a button.”Ron Johanson

Silver Trak’s Media Room smart media storage, management and delivery service is used by some of Australia’s largest free to air broadcasters, streaming companies and content providers including ABC TV, Netflix, Foxtel, Icon Film Distribution, Transmission Films and Entertainment One. Media Room addresses the specific needs of any broadcaster, production house, post production house or distributor who has media assets they want to store, manage and deliver from the convenience of any web connected device. In simple terms it gives the user 100% control over their assets and the ability to use Silver Trak’s services such as QC, file storage or Aspera fasp™ high speed data transfers without paying any licence fees and without leaving the comfort of their seat.

In addition to archiving, the safe and secure sharing of content nationwide is a service that Media Room immediately brings to the ACS and its members.

Silver Trak MD Christian Christiansen added, “Media Room has several highly complex security measures built in so all content is safeguarded from piracy and theft. With that in mind the ACS and its members can tailor each room so exactly the right people can see campaigns, watch video newsletters, approve awards segments and collect content for awards judging. There is no longer a need for portable hard drives or using services like DropBox or Hightail. Media Room does it all. Media Room also preserves the original uploaded files’ format and creates very high quality screeners allowing users to view the content on any connected device.

Having recently clocked over three million transcodes in just under two years of operation, installed a 1PB storage solution within the Silver Trak ultra-fast fibre network and begun implementing true broadcast transcodes, Media Room has firmly staked its claim as the most efficient and unique smart media storage, management and delivery service in Australia and the wider Asia Pacific region.
