In recent years, the world of production has seen a seismic shift, propelled not only by technological advancements but also by changing work dynamics. As industries adapt to unforeseen challenges, flexibility and resource efficiency in production and post-production processes have become paramount.

Enter the era of remote production—a model that production professionals across the globe are rapidly embracing. In this new remote work model, accessing high-performance workstations remotely to utilize cutting-edge applications is not just a luxury; it's a necessity.

This blog explores how Splashtop has emerged as the ideal remote access solution for this evolving landscape by offering a platform that ensures productivity, security, and seamless access, no matter where you are. 

The Shift to Remote Production

Historically, production and post-production workflows were rooted firmly in brick-and-mortar studios. Teams would congregate in specialized facilities equipped with high-performance workstations and state-of-the-art equipment. However, the production landscape transformed, driven by a combination of technological innovations, global collaborations, and unexpected global events.

The recent global pandemic catalyzed major change in how we work, forcing many industries, including production, to reevaluate their traditional operational methods. Social distancing norms and lockdowns made it imperative for professionals to find ways to continue their work from remote locations.

Another factor contributing to this shift is that modern-day professionals value flexibility. The ability to work from a location of one's choice, be it home, a café, or while traveling, has proven to improve work-life balance and, in many cases, productivity. A model that supports this flexibility without compromising on the quality of work is a win-win.

Splashtop for Remote Post-Production and Production

Splashtop enables seamless access to remote desktops from anywhere. With high-definition remote access, professionals can interact with their production tools as if using them in person. There's no lag or compromise in quality, ensuring smooth operations.

Whether accessing video editing software, sound editing platforms, or CGI software, Splashtop offers seamless remote connections, allowing professionals to work without hindrance from any device. 

Why Splashtop is the Ideal Choice for Production Professionals

In an industry where precision and efficiency are paramount, the tools production pros use to support their workflow can make or break a project. Here's why Splashtop emerges as the ideal choice for remote production and post-production professionals across the film, television, and commercial production industries:

  • True Color Accuracy with 4:4:4 Color Mode: In a world where color grading can dramatically affect mood and tone of an entire production, Splashtop's 4:4:4 Color Mode ensures that professionals experience true color accuracy. This feature is crucial for high-quality video editing and post-production tasks.

  • Ultra-High Audio Fidelity Settings: Audio elements can define the ambiance and emotion of a scene. Splashtop ensures optimal audio quality during remote editing sessions, allowing sound designers and editors to fine-tune their work to perfection.

  • Multi-Monitor Support: For those accustomed to multi-monitor setups, Splashtop ensures they can view and work across all displays. This feature also allows each remote monitor to be spread into separate windows, facilitating an optimal workspace setup.

Splashtop also supports USB device redirection.
