4th Rock Production and Post Simplifies Workflow and Reduces Costs with an Innovative Cloud Solution from Limelight Networks, Wasabi and Signiant

4th Rock Production and Post has decades of experience finishing features, trailers, promos, SDR, HDR, HD, UHD, 4K to the most exacting standards. The company has deep technical experience in preparing content for distribution in both domestic and international delivery standards.

4th Rock Production and Post Challenge:

As 4th Rock shifted to the cloud to improve flexibility and access to large media files, they faced challenges with moving and managing large numbers of media files. They also encountered a host of unpredictable and costly charges to transfer and store their content.

“4th Rock is experiencing rapid growth and our operations are now completely reliant on the cloud. Streamlining these processes is essential to the success of our global film production and  distribution business. We’ve already seen big returns on our investment with Limelight, Wasabi and Signiant, and look forward to extending our work with all three providers in the future.”
