We are excited to announce the successful completion of the research initiative, “Film Editing as a Cloud Service”, delivering a distributed architecture and elasticity for a flexible hybrid cloud solution.

As a result of this development, HAWC On-Demand services can now be transformed into a scalable cloud solution for the global professional post-production industry. Projects (and their users and media content) can now operate and collaborate across site boundaries and span multiple sites. This is a milestone as it enables film editors to collaborate in real-time with users in any region of the world.

“This is truly exciting!” says HAWC CEO Mats Jernudd. “We´ve managed to solve the technical challenges in delivering a scalable service for remote film editing and post production. We´re now ready to deliver our services to customers worldwide.”

HAWC International collaborated on the research with Elastisys AB and researchers at Umeå University, led by world-renowned professor Erik Elmroth
