SubtitleNEXT allows for remote online study and work

When it was announced that colleges and universities would have to close due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Hellenic American College in Athens was in an immediate position to be able to transfer onsite courses to synchronous online sessions.

With the help of the SubtitleNEXT platform, chosen for the Masters in Translation (MAT) Program and Audio-visual Translation Lab, students are currently able to continue working on SubtitleNEXT remotely to complete their courses without disruption.

SubtitleNEXT is a flexible subtitling timed-text system that can run on different types of hardware. With the cooperation of the SubtitleNEXT team, the educational set-up was quickly adapted for remote working and virtual study. The powerful features in SubtitleNEXT and the collective team spirit have allowed students to continue their learning, and it will enable them to progress to the next stage of their educational journey.

Hellenic American College in Athens is a dynamic institution with lecturers who had already embraced and adopted SubtitleNEXT last year for its MAT program, arming a future generation with knowledge of how to effectively localize content for every major studio, OTT platform, and broadcast company to meet global consumer demand. The MAT is one of 14 academic degree programs of the US-accredited Hellenic American University which the College offers in Greece. Students in the MAT program acquire the credentials to begin a career in translation, audio-visual translation and editing.

Work from home options available for Mediaproxy monitoring systems Posted: 28/04/2020
Work from home options available for Mediaproxy monitoring systems

Mediaproxy, the leading provider of software-based IP broadcast solutions, is helping its customers ensure their output of the highest technical quality at a time when many operational staff are having to work from home. The company's compliance analysis and logging systems can be accessed remotely using laptop computers to allow all confidence monitoring to be carried out.

The coronavirus crisis has made broadcasters dramatically reassess not only how programs are produced, but also how distribution operations are managed. The move to both IT and IP-based broadcast infrastructures had already made it possible for technicians to access systems from wherever they are. This option is now widely available, meaning broadcast centers can still run efficiently, while, at the same, time allowing self-isolation and social distancing guidelines to be observed.

DejaSoft offers editors DejaEdit Licenses at half-price to assist with Remote Working

DejaSoft offers editors 50% off all DejaEdit licenses over March and April.

DejaEdit plays an essential role in increasing productivity - allowing editors to share media files and timelines automatically and securely with remote co-workers around the world, without having to be online continuously.

“As editors adapt to the current world-wide virus precautions, we are offering assistance to the post-production community by providing half-price licenses. As of Thursday 19 March through to the end of April, we will provide DejaEdit licenses for Avid editors at half the usual cost.” DejaSoft’s CEO Clas Hakeröd confirms.

DejaEdit offers editors working on AvidNexis, MediaComposer and EditShare workflows, at studios, production companies and post facilities, a vital application that ensures media files and timelines are updated across multiple remote edit stations.

How JetStream Accelerated File Transfer Helps Remote Teams Posted: 17/03/2020
How JetStream Accelerated File Transfer Helps Remote Teams

Remote working has grown by 173% since 2005. This rate will only increase as more companies instruct employees to work from home to slow the spread of COVID-19. During times of self-isolation, technology allows organisations to adapt working arrangements and remain productive at the same time. The speed at which teams share large files impacts how effectively they can work together.


File Transfer Acceleration

As companies enact work from home policies in an effort to keep their employees healthy, they may be challenged to maintain productivity. JetStream uses UDP file transfer acceleration protocol. Team members can collaborate faster wherever they are.


Transfer Once for Fast File Transfers

JetStream enables point-to-point transfers. Files are sent directly from the source to the destination and never at rest in a middle holding area, keeping data safer.


Scale Users As Needed

JetStream provides unlimited user connections at no additional cost. As a result, organisations can scale users as needed, especially when more and more workers are staying home.
