ClearView Flex

Real-time remote review -– from any location, on any device.

Remote working doesn’t have to feel remote

Collaborate with your teams in real time, from anywhere with ClearView Flex

Call the shots from anywhere

Real-time creative collaboration on editing, VFX and content production – from any location, on any device.

ClearView Flex enables an ‘over-the-shoulder’ shared viewing experience –  when your collaborators are in different cities or continents.

Stream live, encrypted video streams in real-time from any source via HDMI or SDI to your team members and clients and enable them to review and approve content from anywhere on their tablet, phone, PC/MAC or via Apple TV. 

Live content is easily viewable on any internet-connected device with no extra equipment at the viewer’s end. The technology supports 2K resolution at 8-bit 4:2:0 chroma, with ultra-low latency – basically the speed of light from the content source to the viewer, plus around 2-5 video frames of delay. That’s about as close as your team can get to watching a monitor over the editor’s shoulder – without physically being in the same room.

WHY FLEX?

Flexible

When flexibility is key, ClearView Flex gives you that “over the shoulder” review experience wherever you are.

It brings remote production teams together, allowing you to work quickly and effectively with that “over the shoulder” review experience even when your team can’t be in the same room. Video is streamed from the source via a standard internet connection, relayed globally via our lightning-fast, secure network, and viewed on any internet-connected device. No time-consuming pre-rendering, uploads, file transfers, downloads or special viewing hardware – just near-zero latency and professional quality

Studio-Grade Security

With ClearViewFlex, encrypted video streams are provided through a secure invite link, with a unique
session ID burned into each stream. Content owners stay in total control of security with a full user management dashboard for complete reassurance. And Sohonet’s expert support team are always on hand to ensure peace of mind for your production team and clients.

Reduce Costs

With up to 30% of a production budget spent on travel, ClearView Flex helps production teams cut down on expensive global travel costs previously required to bring teams together for those vital edit sessions or VFX decisions. Some productions are even shaving days off their production schedules and budgets using remote collaboration.

The simplest, most accurate tool for real-time collaboration for directors, DPs, editors, producers, and production execs, ClearView Flex is now available cost-effectively by subscription or by the week – keeping your finance director or production accountant happy too.

KEY FEATURES

Real-time 2K Streaming

Real-time video streaming to up to 20 viewers on any device. The technology supports 2K resolution at 8-bit 4:2:0 chroma, with ultra-low latency – basically the speed of light from the content source to the viewer, plus around 2-5 video frames of delay. That’s about as close as your team can get to watching a monitor over the editor’s shoulder – without physically being in the same room.

Multi-device support

Streams can be viewed on desktop/PC/Mac, Android, iOS devices and Apple TV. All the viewer needs is a basic internet connection — meaning they can view stream on the go from anywhere (on set, airport, car, beach…)

Ultra Low-Latency

Traditional streaming hardware products suffer when they run over the Internet due to packet contention and loss on the network. By running the service over our Sohonet Media Network, we can guarantee that latency is not an issue and ensure that our real-time solution really is in ‘real-time’

Simple to Use

1: Connect creative workstation/ camera via SDI or HDMI to the Flexbox

2: On the Clearview Flex Webpage invite viewers by email to join a session

3: Viewers click one-time usage link to view live session via any device

4: Team/ clients collaborate in real-time, securely. 

HD-SDI and HDMI input

Supports both HD-SDI and HDMI input for either colour and frame-accurate source review or
screen sharing

Studio Grade Security

There’s no need to take our word for it that your assets are secure.  We are independently audited with a regular review cycle to ensure every new feature and update added to the service passes the strict security policies of our studio customers’ infosec teams.

Encrypted streams are provided through a secure link, with a unique session ID burned into each stream
