The Silverstack Offload Manager supports your offloading tasks on set: It enables secure backups, and documents your work in comprehensive reports. Besides these obvious gains, there are a number of advantages “under the hood”. These may not be obvious at first, but can make your daily work on set significantly easier. In this blogpost we want to discuss some of these benefits.
The “one-take” workflow video from Light Iron / Panavision shows the new integration of LiveGrade Pro and the Panavision DXL2 camera.

However, there are situations where other configurations for connecting can be beneficial as well – e.g. to create a higher reach or a more flexible setup. For this reason we would like to introduce you to a few more network connection alternatives in this article.
The ARRI Look Library offers on-set looks for all kinds of productions.

Throughout all development phases we have always been asking ourselves the question: “How fast is the transcoding in Silverstack Lab?”
