Los Angeles (September 10, 2020) – Sohonet, the global experts in connectivity, media services and network security for the media and entertainment industry, is excited to announce the launch of ClearView Pivot Lite. This addition to Sohonet’s ClearView Pivot solution will provide a home-alternative for real-time remote editing, color grading, live screening and finishing reviews at full cinema quality. Pivot Lite will be available to all customers beginning September 17.
Pivot offers 4K high dynamic range (HDR) with 12-bit color depth and 4:4:4 chroma sampling for full- color quality video streaming with ultra-low latency. Pivot Lite boxes can be installed as a receive-only alternative to a standard Pivot box. Unlike Pivot, which is provided over Sohonet’s uncontended private media network, Pivot Lite is network agnostic and can be run over lower bandwidths to support review from home.
The Pivot Lite hardware runs successfully over a premium internet connection but at bandwidths that make it applicable for at home use. With a lower bandwidth requirement enabling streaming at 2K with as little as 100 mbps and 150mbps for UHD or 4K.
Sohonet has been working in concert with the leading studios and content creators throughout the pandemic to develop a solution which brings full-resolution HDR collaboration to remote post studios or teams working from home.
“As our industry continues to adapt to new working conditions, we are dedicated to adapting and developing our services to match this new reality,” notes Chuck Parker, CEO of Sohonet. “Creative working practices are likely to be permanently altered. Pivot Lite provides media teams with the means to collaborate securely and productively on high-quality content at times when journeying into the facility is unfeasible”.
Pivot Lite has been put through its paces in real-world settings, with trials across multiple sectors of the industry and the color technologies have been fully inspected and approved by experts across the industry.
