Lucky Post is a full-service post-production studio in Dallas and Austin combining creative editorial, color, VFX, finish, motion graphics, and sound design. Due to the current situation with COVID-19, Lucky Post were looking for a way to keep their employees working remotely when Media Systems Integrators CineSys introduced them to SimpleCloud. SimpleCloud is a cloud-based platform for digital content creators. It provides management and setup of a virtual studio in the cloud, allowing users to be connected to a virtual workstation from anywhere, through any thin client or html 5 supported browser.

This has been an amazing experience. We were able to add some customizations to workstations to leverage Evercast and rely purely on the data center network connection, while the clients logged on to supervise. In these times you can imagine the stress put on the local network nodes with everyone working from home, this solution has mitigated any issues with local upload speeds from artists’ homes.
