STREAMONIX AND ATOMOS TEAM UP Atomos and Streamonix have announced a collaboration to develop a new real-time streaming project. They will work under a memorandum of understanding to test and deploy a next-generation, real-time streaming project, connecting Atomos Cloud Studio to Streamonix Media Streaming Federation (MSF) test network. The MSF will behave as a one-to-many accelerator and delivery utility for Atomos Cloud Studio streams, using the Streamonix Cloud-to-MSF interface. The MSF will span selected global locations, transmitting live HD and 4K video streams from the Atomos Cloud with sub- one-second latency. This will highlight the ultra-low-latency, ultra-high-bit-rate streaming capabilities of Streamonix, and will demonstrate its suitability for global, real-time streaming applications such as live broadcasts, as well as large- scale ProRes Raw production file transfers.

Multi-million-pound Netflix film studio development edges closer Ashford International Film Studios has taken a major step forward with a loan of £50 million from Ashford Borough Council to develop the old Newtown Works. Plans include reusing Grade II listed railway sheds and workshops at the site, with Netflix and Amazon among the producers considering using studio space. The UK film sector is projected to require two million sq ft of new studio space and 10,000 new employees in five years. Council director of finance and economy Ben Lockwood hailed the project as an opportunity to transform a dormant brownfield site with historical significance into a thriving hub of economic activity. “This scheme, subject to an amended planning consent for the studio and workshop space, with a reputable studio operator secured and with the council’s support, together with the successful Levelling Up funding bid, provides a once-in-a- generation opportunity to redevelop this nationally significant railway heritage site into a thriving economic driver," he said. The studios are expected to boost investment and employment opportunities in the area, with 240,000 sq ft of studio space, a 120-bed hotel and 300 residential apartments.
