Taking the industry
by storm.

Take their word for it.

"As a competition involving journalists, commissioners and executives across the news industry – all of whom work in high-pressure environments with time constraints and often limited resources – it is important for the Rory Peck Awards to maintain a clear and coherent workflow process. Whether it's streamlining applicant submissions via the File Request app, or helping judges, editors and press review entries securely through customised MediaBoxes, the Sony Ci’s innovative and ever-evolving technology has transformed a complex and sometimes difficult process into one that is both efficient and accessible to all stakeholders."
— Tina Carr, Director of Rory Peck Trust

In the field.

Collect footage from across the world in record time.

With the Winter Games quickly approaching, The Weather Company needed a cloud solution to accurately and efficiently deliver up-to-the-minute weather reports and data. Ci offered the perfect features for the job. From the slopes to the stadiums of Sochi, Weather’s correspondents and production teams seamlessly submitted footage, field reports, and time-sensitive content. And Ci medaled in transparency, accessibility, and organized footage for users.

Assignment collaboration and affordability earns Ci high marks.

A top film school was looking for a way to remove the walls between students and teachers and expand their interaction beyond the confines of the classroom. Over the past year, students and professor have been saying "so long" to discs and drives in exchange for 25-gigabyte Ci accounts. Used not only as a storage solution, Ci has professors hooked on to the invaluable VideoReview application to view, provide feedback, and receive final drafts of student projects and assignment for grading.

On set.

Get dailies and rough cuts to the people who need them, fast.

Dr. Shaun Wilson, a filmmaker for Honeyhouse Films and Senior Lecturer at RMIT University in Victoria Australia, needed a flexible solution for a wide range of projects ranging from a $5,000 film to a $30 million feature with teams located around the globe. He wanted more than just a cloud storage platform and Ci’s tools were different than anything else he saw in the market. With the ability to upload everything into a simple browser-based website, his team — no matter where they were — could view, work, or comment in a matter of minutes. Ci's feature set has cut hours out of their filmmaking process and, more importantly, made it cheaper to make films.
