Podcast: Producing in the cloud with Little Dot Studios

Jake Bickerton - Broadcast

Little Dot Studios began working with BASE Media Cloud five years ago on a long-term project to transition production workflows to the cloud.

This episode of Broadcast Tech Talks is with Greg Rochford, IT manager at Little Dot Studios and Michael Clayton, sales account executive at BASE Media Cloud.

They talk with Broadcast Tech editor Jake Bickerton about how they worked together to transition Little Dot Studios to the cloud. It’s a journey that began five years ago, and has paid dividends during lockdown with everyone able to seamlessly work and access all production assets from any location.

Little Dot has 1.4PB of data (and counting) in the cloud on accelerated secure cloud storage. An Iconik smart media management platform plugs into this cloud storage, and when new content is added it’s automatically scanned, transcoded and made into proxies, ready for editors to work on.

The setup is discussed during this podcast, as well as why Little Dot Studios still needs a big London office despite the cloud enabling all its staff to work remotely.
