The forensically secure solution for creative team review, developed to specifications and based on requirements from ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power,’ is now commercially available.
Autodesk has just unveiled Moxion Rooms, a forensically secure review solution enabling creative teams in production and post-production to share live streams and review uploaded assets in a single cloud-based environment.
Developed for the specifications and production needs of remote teams working on the Amazon Originals series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, the system is now being released commercially to boost collaboration and productivity for all studios.
The cloud-based Moxion platform supports secure digital dailies and camera to cloud (Immediates) workflows. With Moxion Rooms, people can collaborate and review camera footage on set and remotely with the efficiency and immediacy required to make creative decisions during principal photography in 4K high dynamic range (HDR) quality, with studio-grade security. Moxion Rooms includes powerful review tools, video and voice chat, and industry-standard support for Dolby Vision, HDR10 and SDR.
“Moxion Rooms accommodates collaborative review in a secure environment with video and voice chat, and elegantly hosts and stores everything anyone working on a production needs to access, from budgets to scripts and schedules,” said Ron Ames, producer/founder, The Modern Film Consortium. “This was essential for a project like The Rings of Power with so many moving parts. Moxion Rooms quickly replaced what was taking us a combination of four different review solutions, and reliance on OBS, which is not ideal on a high stakes production.”
“We acquired Moxion to accelerate our move to production in the cloud, and we’re excited to introduce Moxion Rooms to support next-generation creative needs,” said Diana Colella, senior vice president, Autodesk Media & Entertainment. “Teams can now collaborate on footage and assets virtually as it is captured, and facilitate fully synced live review sessions via a browser. This ultimately enables faster content delivery and helps keep up with industry demand.”
Autodesk Moxion has earned a number of industry accolades including an Engineering Excellence Award from the Hollywood Professional Association (HPA), a Workflow Systems Medal from the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), and a Lumiere Award from the Advanced Imaging Society. Moxion has been used on a number of challenging productions, including The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power, The Midnight Sky, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and The Matrix Resurrections.
