University of Salford and the VidiCore API Hybrid Cloud solution
“We tuned the VSA service to allow VidiCore to monitor the files and read/write from/to the Tiger Storage. Moreover, the VSA makes it flexible to access the transcoder and monitoring the transcoder and storage status. At the end of the day we combined the direct performance and accessibility of the on-premise solution with the flexibility and elegance of the cloud solution. This is what a Hybrid Cloud should be.”

“The ability to upload and download remotely was a big priority for both studios and staff. It means they no longer have to travel to the university to submit or mark papers, allowing them to work from home. On top of that, we have compatibility with all the workstations we use, including Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro and Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve, as well as other workflows, including render farming and studio track. Ultimately we have an industry-standard installation that gives our students a learning experience as close to what they will encounter in the real-world as possible.”
