Being able to work remotely is more important now than ever before, but for film and video editors, that often means having to sacrifice the quality of your workflow. If you're tired of lagging and stuttering all the way to your final edit, you might want to take a look at what ELEMENTS Satellite has to offer.
Originally developed by PARSEC for remote gaming, ELEMENTS has taken that technology and merged it with the high demands of media workflows that require low-latency, stable playback, higher framerates, and dependable security.
Not only does Satellite handle up to 4K 60fps video from anywhere in the world, but it also offers security features like central control of access and sharing permissions, user account creation, and end-to-end encryption, which utilizes the ELEMENTS Client app for single-click encrypted connections on both Mac and PC operating systems. Furthermore, Satellite's WebGUI content management system also gives users the ability to manage their remote workflow without having to purchase expensive hardware or software.
And what about tasks that don't require a ton of bandwidth and performance, like exporting and ingesting? Well, Satellite can take care of those, too.
