Atomos, Canon and Sclera Digital provided digital broadcasting for The Sundance Film Festival
The Sundance Film Festival has been celebrated during January 19–29. This edition has been distributed online. This task has been supported by Atomos with on-board monitoring and recording using the Ninja V and Atomos Connect.
The idea was to create content for the Festival Daily Recap and videos that will be distributed in theatres and across its social media channels.
The team was composed by 13 camera crews, each with a producer and camera operator. All the crews used a combination of wired connectivity where available, and Wi-Fi over a bonded cellular network. Atomos equipment was used with Adobe’s Camera-to-Cloud (C2C) workflow, powered by Frame.io. This way, editors could begin earlier than at previous festivals providing efficiencies in the post-production process.
Sclera Digital, a cinema equipment rental company based in Los Angeles and an Atomos partner, provided five Peplink bonded dual-band 11ac Wi-Fi systems with two embedded LTE modems.
Canon, also an Atomos partner, supported the event with a combination of EOS R6 mirrorless DSLR cameras, EOS C200 digital cinema cameras and EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR cameras.
“It was a great 11 days in Park City,” added Trevor Elbourne, CEO of Atomos. “It was an excellent example of cloud-based, collaborative workflows finding their place in production. It validates our strategy of using online services to augment the capabilities of our products in the field to empower filmmakers with more creative tools.”
