Sohonet, global experts in connectivity, media services and network security for the media and entertainment industry, has announced the launch of ClearView Pivot Lite. This addition to Sohonet’s ClearView Pivot solution will provide a home-alternative for real-time remote editing, color grading, live screening and finishing reviews at full cinema quality. Pivot Lite will be available to all customers beginning September 17.
Pivot offers 4K high dynamic range (HDR) with 12-bit color depth and 4:4:4 chroma sampling for full- color quality video streaming with ultra-low latency. Pivot Lite boxes can be installed as a receive-only alternative to a standard Pivot box. Pivot Lite is also network agnostic and can be run over lower bandwidths to support review from home.
The Pivot Lite hardware runs successfully over a premium internet connection but at bandwidths that make it applicable for at home use. With a lower bandwidth requirement enabling streaming at 2K with as little as 100 mbps and 150mbps for UHD or 4K.
Sohonet has been working in concert with the leading studios and content creators throughout the pandemic to develop a solution which brings full-resolution HDR collaboration to remote post studios or teams working from home.
