on Tuesday, February 2, 2016 in Beverley Hills, California. This will be the eighth year that Sohonet has had the pleasure of both sponsoring this event and providing the end-end electronic submission solution for the awards.
Sohonet’s QC system has enabled the submissions of over 400 VES award entries to the Visual Effects Society and the delivery of high quality viewings at the nomination judging’s held over one day in several locations across the globe.
The electronic process has significantly increased the number of applications over the years, as nominees benefit from lower preparation and transportation costs and greater accessibility for all. The state-of-the-art QC System automatically alerts nominees if submitted material does not meet the VES Award’s specification including image codec, audio codec, image resolution, etc. Proxies are also created for each nomination, so that VES committee members across the globe can easily and securely review submissions to ensure conformance with the category entered, without having to worry about the technical compliance.
Sohonet provide the entered material at the various international nomination events on the 9th
January, 2016. This will entail managing and distributing 24 hours worth of material on the same day across different time zones.
