Send video from any location and access it wherever you are. Connect to the cloud without wires, backpacks, or vehicles and get content into your production workflow—fast. Our C3 Portal service gives you high-speed file transfers and streaming, direct from your camera.
C3 Portal is the gateway that connects Sony’s cameras to cloud networks. Close the gap in modern workflows.
C3 Portal uses mobile 5G/LTE, Wifi and Ethernet to connect your camera to the cloud. Creators’ App for enterprise realizes easy network connection between camera and cloud by only scanning the QR code from your smartphone.* The mobile app also allows you to adjust settings, preview video clips, log metadata and manage transfers.
By utilizing the app, you can avoid manual network settings on the camcorder side, transfer files when you are moving to the next location, and review clips at any time.
*C3 Portal supported functions vary depending on the camcorder.
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.
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 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.
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 where a single source might not be enough.
*Only Android supported.
C3 Portal also supports the 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.
C3 Portal’s unique metadata management starts from the planning stage of production. In the case of news production, the newly made stories in the NRCS (Newsroom Computing System) are automatically exchanged as Story Metadata in the C3 Portal. 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.
C3 Portal supports AI transcription service by integrating our AI platform service – A2 Production.
A file transferred to the C3 Portal will start text transcription automatically. Transcription will be used to search files easily in the folder and check the content easily without preview, and also can be utilized as metadata.
The C3 Portal also has a story board function, which allows you to do rough cuts on a browser. Each clip can have in points/out points and the portal assembles those clips to make up your video. You can render preview-ready files for immediate sharing to socials or can download EDL to continue your editing on your NLEs.
C3 Portal plug-in support for Adobe Premiere Pro enables you to import clips on the C3 Portal into Premiere Pro for use in post-production.
C3 Portal integrates seamlessly with Avid MediaCentral via Marquis, meaning proxy resolution footage from a Sony camera can be edited almost straightaway in an Avid environment. Media files and associated metadata are automatically transferred from the camera as proxies for editing, then the hi-res partial files can be requested, which are automatically transferred to MediaCentral from the C3 Portal via Marquis, ready for air.
C3 Portal will be the open platform cloud service to be integrated with 3rd party systems and services. By combining the software which you are using, C3 Portal provides you with next-generation workflow. The function-wise module APIs are also prepared by the different development layers.
