New York (PRWEB) May 17, 2010
Scenios™, LLC - a leader in the emerging market for Web-based Digital Asset Management (DAM) technology - today announced the immediate availability of its cloud-based platform for DAM and its affiliated user community of video professionals at http://www.scenios.com.
Replicating multi-million dollar technology previously reserved for only the largest production and post-production facilities, Scenios breaks the stranglehold of proprietary and expensive DAM systems. DAM is now affordable and available to anyone, anytime and anywhere - whether from an editing bay in studio or out in the field from a laptop. As an online service, Scenios works with all the major operating systems – Microsoft® Windows®, Apple® Mac® OS X and Linux®.
Scenios enables anyone to easily and securely collaborate to share any form of video or multimedia content - from film dailies to raw or edited video footage -while simultaneously tracking all aspects of a production edit. Scenios provides a fully managed, real-time digital workflow, both inside the studio and with field-based freelancers, production specialists and customers.
Scenios is a true project-based service, enabling dramatically lowered costs compared to traditional DAM systems. Using Scenios, projects can be deleted or saved when finished, while the original source content remains securely archived in the cloud for future access. All rights-managed assets uploaded to Scenios will be searchable for potential licensing to members of the Scenios community, enabling content to be re-purposed and easily monetized by its owners.
Scenios takes advantage of several Web-based technology platforms, ranging from the enterprise-grade storage provided by Amazon® S3 cloud-based storage to the most advanced on-demand video transcoding available. This enables Scenios to have the scalability to process Gigabytes of HD footage at top speed and with the image quality demanded by video pros.
Scenios supports open API frameworks to allow its community to leverage other sites and technologies as needed for the best user experience. For example, Scenios is one of the early adopters of the Facebook® Social Graph API solution to enable seamless integration with the world’s biggest Social Networking community.
Scenios was founded by Emmy®-award winning producers and editors (5 Emmys with one founder alone) and is highly leveraged towards the needs and specific use requirements of video pros. However, Scenios does also offer a unique, easy-to-use solution for sharing videos with a select group of friends and family for socially-based video editing of home video footage as well.
“We pulled together the Scenios team just over a year ago, with the dream of bringing Digital Asset Management ‘to the rest of us’," said Mark Davis, President and Co-Founder of Scenios, LLC. “We are thrilled to release version 1.0 of the Scenios platform, and to offer a breakthrough new service and community to video professionals worldwide.”
Scenios offers a wide range of pricing and service solutions, including a free account supporting a single project with up to 3 collaborators and 2 GB of cloud storage on the Amazon S3 platform. Paid plans start at $79 per month with unlimited S3 storage and support for 5 GB file uploads. Workgroup and Enterprise pricing may be found at http://scenios.com/plans.
Scenios is a startup based in New York City focusing on the convergence of Cloud-based Digital Asset Management, professional community building and open technology standards. Details on the company’s new collaborative online solution may be found at http://www.scenios.com.
