CODEX Media Vault Brings Efficiency and Collaboration to Design at KT Design Company

When you introduce a new product to a mass audience at a sporting event or concert and you want your brand to be remembered and your product to be desired, who do you call? The top brands from the National Hockey League to Red Bull, and the Chicago Bulls, all start with Kristin Territo, owner of KT Design Company.

KT Design Company (KTDC) is a multimedia digital agency based in Miami, Florida that provides full-service premium production for sports presentation, event production and global brands. KTDC creates content that engages, captivates, connects, and inspires. They offer extensive experience in high production value motion graphics, animation and management of the creative process. Their unique production sets, graphic campaigns and videos can be seen on major networks and are on display inside of NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NCAA and MLS Stadiums across America. With a reputation for excellence and passion, KT Design Company aims to elevate brands around the world.

Ever been to a sports arena for a hockey game or concert? The venues are laid out with multiple high-resolution video displays and 360-degree LED boards that wrap entire sections of the stadiums. Digital signage in the 21st century doesn’t mean a 16:9 monitor but rather 9:16 displays with content that needs to rotate and scale on the fly while respecting the brands identity and conveying the ideas and creative input brought on by the KT Design Company team.

The goal that binds the work at KTDC and what motivates their design efforts, is finding the smartest solution for each project. Kristin’s team creates a unique strategy for each of their client partners by deeply understanding the brands of the clients, their goals and their audience. While some of their clients simply desire impactful motion graphics to enhance their own digital platforms, others require a full package from ideation to execution and management of the entire creative process. KTDC works directly with each client, providing à la carte services, plus customized solutions that respond to the particular needs of each production and venue.

In order to provide the highest quality product for their clients, KTDC has maintained the essence of a boutique agency whose mission is quality over quantity. While all of their client projects are managed in-house, Kristin’s team will often collaborate with trusted remote freelancers on larger scale productions. For their in-house collaboration, KT Design Company recently introduced CODEX Media Vault into their creative pipeline to help manage the storage and access of their creative assets for the animation team.

Per Kristin, “Prior to implementing Media Vault into our everyday workflow, KTDC utilized an online cloud storage solution. While this worked well initially, the scale of our projects became more and more demanding and we realized that an online cloud solution just wasn’t cutting it. In 2019, for one of our client's campaign launches, we created and delivered nearly 4,000 pieces of content in less than 30 days. As our projects grew in size, we found it increasingly important to have not only a shared storage solution but one with the capabilities of adding and supporting more users as KTDC grows as a company. Having a solution like Media Vault has allowed our animators to work more efficiently as a team and has made it easier than ever before to collaborate on the same projects.”

To produce the stunning motion graphic packages designed specifically for the venue’s digital signage requirements, KTDC uses a variety of tools to design and create those awesome packages. Adobe Creative Cloud being the most widely used, along with Cinema 4D on macOS in conjunction with CODEX Media Vault. Kristin notes that having the ability to support both macOS and Windows is important for a shared storage solution, as some clients require encoded files generated on software applications that are Windows compatible only. In addition, the KTDC IT Manager can utilize Windows and Terminal applications when setting up, configuring and troubleshooting the server.

When asking Kristin about the future of her company while continuing to support clients remotely she replied, “With the exponential pace of technology, it’s difficult to predict where and how the creative industry will change in terms of its demands. Will creative programs begin to focus more on generative content vs traditional assets, leading to fewer asset files and larger project files? How will that change our workflow here at KTDC? We can't say at this point. The only thing we do know is that reliability and ease of use will always be at the forefront of our demands as we grow into other solutions in the foreseeable future.

Why DejaEdit is considered an indispensable Collaborative tool in Film Productions Posted: 22/05/2020
Why DejaEdit is considered an indispensable Collaborative tool in Film Productions

Anna Knochenhauer is a well-respected Stockholm-based film producer/ post-producer with impressive titles to her name which include the likes of “Euphoria” featuring Alicia Vikander; “Welcome to Sweden” season 2 starring Jason Priestly and others.

Carving a successful career of VFX-heavy feature films and drama series, she declares DejaEdit is a revolutionary film tool that should be included in every production as industry standard. She uses DejaEdit in all her productions now, including recent films “Alone in Space” (2018), “White Wall” (2020) and “We Got This” (2020).

DejaEdit is a media file synchroniser that gives editors the ability to collaborate super-efficiently between multiple remote Avid editing platforms. “I depend on DejaEdit for all my productions because it ensures that the media files and timelines that we have created or imported in one connected system are shared and mirrored to the local or network storage of other connected systems. It all takes place quickly, securely and automatically in the background... 
The fact that DejaEdit ensures all media is pushed automatically to all connected Avids means that the Assistant Editor (AE) or Editors don’t ever have to search for any missing media files. DejaEdit has saved us a lot of time and headaches."

Intinor to Demonstrate How to Do Remote Production in Live Webinars With Skaarhoj Posted: 21/05/2020
Intinor to Demonstrate How to Do Remote Production in Live Webinars With Skaarhoj

Intinor Technology, Sweden’s leading developer of products and solutions for high quality video over the internet, will be demonstrating how to do remote production in a series of live webinars with Danish company Skaarhoj, manufacturers of universal broadcast control panels. The aim is to showcase how the remote production tools from both Intinor and Skaarhoj complement each other to give a flexible, secure workflow for live production using a variety of different content sources and locations.

Interest in remote production workflows (or REMI) has been on the increase for some time now already. Even before the current global social distancing requirements created an added incentive for broadcasting companies to seek an alternative to the traditional travel-dependent methods of production, the economic and productivity benefits that REMI offers enables companies to more easily meet the rising demand for live content.

Anevia Adds Multi-tiered Storage to its Cloud DVR Storage Offering Posted: 20/05/2020
Anevia Adds Multi-tiered Storage to its Cloud DVR Storage Offering

Anevia announces the addition of multi-tiered storage to its Cloud DVR storage offering, Embedded Distributed Storage (EDS). This new feature makes EDS even more cost-efficient and scalable while also enabling storage in the cloud – meaning the solution becomes both flexible and elastic.

TV service providers are increasingly enriching their VOD content and need to expand their storage capacity without a commensurate increase in the number of users. The original hyper-convergent design of the scalable, high-performance EDS calls for more servers to be added to increase streaming and storage capacity in parallel. Multi-tiered storage means it is now possible to also increase storage capacity independently of streaming capacity.

With only a small fraction of the VOD catalogue being consumed regularly, long-tail content can be stored more efficiently and cost-effectively on general-purpose ‘cold storage’ support used by the IT departments. This eliminates the need to buy new servers and the related software licences, cutting both the complexity and the cost of scaling for a given number of users.

The newly introduced feature also enables object storage, which opens up the possibility of storing in the public or private cloud. This brings the advantages of scalability, flexibility and elasticity.
