Scottsdale, AZ – February 13, 2023 – Evercast, the leading real-time collaboration platform for creative professionals, announced it will reveal a new on-premises solution for clients with advanced security requirements. This new platform will be showcased at the upcoming Hollywood Professional Association (HPA) Tech Retreat, February 20-23, 2023 in Rancho Mirage, CA.
Evercast is a secure, real-time collaboration software that combines video conferencing with high resolution, color-accurate content streaming and multi-channel audio. With security approval from every major Hollywood studio, Evercast has been used in the production of hundreds of tentpole projects, including Top Gun: Maverick, Avatar: The Way of Water, The Queen’s Gambit, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Evercast is a member of the Motion Picture Association’s Trusted Partner Network, an industry-wide film and television security initiative.
The Evercast On-Prem solution allows creative teams to work in a fully air-gapped environment, with no connection to outside systems or the internet, as is often required by studio security protocol. With this self-hosted solution, studios maintain full control over their data while enjoying the same high-quality streaming technology as Evercast’s flagship platform: up to 4K resolution, 10-bit 4:4:4 color, 7.1 surround sound, and more.
HPA is a non-profit organization whose members include creative and technical businesses that provide expertise, support, tools, and infrastructure for the media and entertainment industry.
Now in its 28th year, the annual HPA Tech Retreat is the pre-eminent gathering of industry-leading thinkers and innovation-focused companies who are engaged in the creation, management, and dissemination of content. The HPA Tech Retreat Innovation Zone showcases new and innovative technology in the areas of production, post production, broadcast, distribution, and over-the-top (OTT) media.
"We’re honored to join Hollywood’s cutting edge innovators at HPA,” said Evercast CEO Damien Stolarz, “and we’re committed to providing our customers with the most flexible, customizable solutions for remote collaboration in Media and Entertainment.
"The industry has numerous workflows: cloud, hybrid, on-premises. Pre-release content with the highest security requirements has to remain fully in-house. And many studios and facilities want the flexibility to manage their own infrastructure and not be dependent upon cloud providers—they want the tight integration and control that’s possible with a wholly on-premises solution. Evercast is pleased to provide this technology for our clients.”
The HPA Tech Retreat 2023 will take place February 20-23 at the Westin Mission Hills Resort in Rancho Mirage, California. Evercast will be at booth #610 of the Innovation Zone.
Evercast is the first cloud-based, all-in-one collaboration tool built for creatives by creatives. The platform offers the unique ability to video conference while securely streaming, with uncompromising quality and ultra-low latency.
