Sohonet Update: ClearView continues to support Storytellers

Lucinda Owen

Sohonet ClearView, the Emmy®-winning global remote collaboration family of products for the film, TV and advertising production industry, has continued to enjoy strong growth in the market. The first quarter of 2022 was marked by a 19% increase over the last quarter in total hours viewed and an 8% increase in total active units. Furthermore, 60% of this year’s Oscar-winning features were supported by ClearView.

ClearView Flex Upgrades

Alongside ClearView’s continued growth in the market, Sohonet continues to invest in additional features for our customers including the now available “in-channel voice chat” feature for ClearView Flex. The feature allows presenters and viewers to collaborate more efficiently via an in-app voice chat capability, removing the need for third-party services like Zoom or Teams.

ClearView Flex in-channel voice chat

In February, ClearView Flex expanded our video offering with new HDR live streaming capabilities that maintains our signature ultra-low latency. Sessions can be launched with up to 40 viewers for a live review of creative work, with rock-solid frame rate color and audio accuracy. The entire ClearView family of products offer studio-grade security and are regularly audited by industry-approved third-party security auditors. Security is built-in at every level including air-gapped setup, end to end encryption and visible watermarking. 

Confident in ClearView’s rock-solid frame rate and strong video fidelity, Sohonet are now focused on delivering more collaboration features to support our customers’ workflows. In the coming months, customers will be able to enjoy further upgrades including annotation, SSO support and support for virtualized deployments to follow in the coming months.
