Remote access platform empowers creative teams at media and entertainment organizations; Leostream presents at the Hollywood Professional Association conference to share best practices for deploying high-performance virtual editing stations at scale.

Leostream, a leading provider of remote access solutions used by media and entertainment creative teams, today announced plans to unveil its new scheduling feature for automated workflows at the 2022 HPA Tech Retreat taking place in Rancho  Mirage, California, February 21-24.

As video editors and content creators are increasingly working from outside of the studio, robust remote access solutions are needed to boost effectiveness and efficiency. With Leostream, companies can fully leverage on-site editing stations and cloud workstations to best support remote talent or a hybrid workforce in a way that is secure, compliant, and seamless.

The new scheduling feature to be demonstrated in the HPA Innovation Zone automates scheduled access to high-powered workstations for groups of users, allowing organizations to emulate project-based editing bays for a globally dispersed user group.

“What’s unique about the media and entertainment industry are the requirements around content security and the costs and complexities associated with running graphics-heavy workloads remotely,” commented Karen Gondoly, Leostream CEO. “Our M&E customers demand automation and ways to manage their remote deployments in the most compliant, cost-effective and simple fashion — the latest advancements to our scheduling feature delivers on all of these fronts.”

Critically acclaimed films and popular episodic TV series have been edited on hosted workstations facilitated by Leostream. Award-winning studios such as Framestore leverage the platform to mobilize creative teams remotely.

“By utilizing Leostream, we have been able to unify a large-scale deployment of hosted resources to 2,500+ animation and visual effects artists,” commented Christophe Meslin, Global Head of Technical Resources at Framestore. “Given the sheer volume of users logging into our system, we need as much control and automation as we can get. Advancements to the scheduling feature within Leostream is a great addition to the flexible policies that we are already using, and we’re excited to have these options to further customize our deployment.”

Leostream is moderating several HPA Breakfast Roundtables at the conference.
