Cloud-based video supply chain and applications provider Ownzones has added support for the Academy Colour Encoding System (ACES).

OWnzones 6 oct 2018The announcement comes less than a month after Ownzones Connect was named by Netflix as the only cloud-native solution in its Post Technology Alliance, a programme for manufacturers committed to serving the evolving needs of the postproduction community through innovation and support.

ACES, an open-source colour-management standard developed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, is quickly becoming a standard for the production and postproduction industries. Capable of encoding every colour visible to the human eye, ACES simplifies workflows and maintains a consistent colour experience across the life cycle of a film or television series, from image capture through editing, visual effects, mastering, distribution and archiving.

“The industry’s move toward ACES will result in a fully encompassing colour-accurate workflow and seamless interchange of high-quality motion picture images regardless of the source,” said Ownzones CEO Dan Goman. “Ownzones is uniquely positioned to serve media companies looking to adopt ACES — as well as those that have already adopted it and want a more advanced implementation. Supporting ACES positions Ownzones cloud technology to better support upstream production processes as well as start to workflow around dailies, rough cuts and other pre-mastered files.”

Hosted in the cloud through Amazon Web Services, Ownzones Connect allows studios and postproduction facilities to deliver content in any format to any platform without the need to continually invest in data servers.
