This company exists thanks to a handful of persistent and curious people, who decided to go against the status quo presented by a tremendous technical challenge at the time: quickly sharing large digital assets at scale.
Sohonet was started in 1995 by a group of London-based post-production facilities as a research project to explore the benefits and opportunities of high-speed connectivity.
Creating its own private network, Sohonet was able to significantly improve productivity by simplifying and accelerating workflows for those involved. Sohonet is now a privately owned company, following an MBO in 2003.
Since the early days of its experimental unprecedented origins, Sohonet has grown its network operations internationally and is renowned for creating the world’s largest independent media network. With offices in the UK (Soho and Pinewood Studios), Los Angeles and Sydney, our ever evolving and expansive Global Reach allows us to provide services to all major production centres worldwide.
Sohonet has been a technology driven company since its inception – consistently expanding and developing its systems and hardware to ensure it keeps ahead of the changing requirements of the media industry. We have long understood that for the majority of our customers, the primary function of technology is to enable the creative process. Our mission is to provide bespoke services and solutions that manage the technical obstacles which often distract our customers from their core business.
We pride ourselves for having always been at the forefront of data management, cloud services and networking technology and offer unparalleled levels of support to our customers. Our principal team has extensive experience in applying technology to media production so that we always offer unrivaled knowledge to our customer base.
