Effortless integration through SDI connectivity

The C3 Portal seamlessly integrates with Teradek’s 4K HDR encoders, including Prism Mobile, Prism Flex, and Serv 4K, allowing you to easily connect Sony camcorders via SDI connectivity. In addition, planning metadata is supported to ensure that recorded content is properly tagged when received by the station, giving teams the assurance they need.

Improved File Transfer Speed

View and Edit While Shooting

Chunked file transfer allows the production team to begin editing content while shooting is still in process. The files are automatically divided into chunks based on the time interval you set on the camera and are uploaded to the cloud. As a result, multiple MP4 clips are created, enabling you to start editing soon after the shooting begins. This process provides a seamless workflow for the production team, allowing them to view and edit the content while it’s being shot.

Improve speed with more bandwith

With mobile app operation, “Multi Mobile Link Transfer” function can be used.* With MMLT, multiple cellular lines are virtually bundled, and the transfer speed increases according to the number of connected smartphones. You can enjoy fast file transfer from an outdoor, remote location, or any other location which single source might not be enough.

*Only Android supported.

Stream from your smartphone

C3 Portal also supports XDCAM pocket smartphone app, which turns your phone into a cloud-ready XDCAM camcorder. This intuitive mobile app streams content shot with smartphones back to the base, using sophisticated QoS technology for better-looking images and fewer dropouts over cellular LTE networks.

Automate your workflow

End to End Metadata Workflow

C3 Portal’s unique metadata management starts from the planning stage of the production. In the case of news production, the newly made stories in the NRCS (Newsroom Computing System) are automatically exchanged as the Story Metadata in C3 Portal. The Story Metadata can be sent to the Creators’ App for enterprise and assigned to the shooting files. The metadata is attached to the files throughout the total workflow which improves its efficiency.
