SalonSync

Broadcast Tech Awards 2020 Finalist

SalonSync was shortlisted
for Best Innovation in Lockdown (Product or Service)

We send a pre-configured Salon BlackBox storage device to the home or office of each of your edit team, a simple plug and play to the internet and then your box starts to communicate with our servers, keeping all your team in sync as per our pre-discussed workflow plan. Using accelerated file transfers (like Aspera) that maximise your connection (this can also be scheduled and throttled should you need reserved capacity*). The system is totally automated & secure. Unlike a lot of sync solutions we have designed SalonSync to be totally hands free and therefore there are no frustrating organising of folder structures after a sync or most importantly Avid database rebuilds! All the file and folder management is done by the system and you can continue to use your editing system without even knowing what’s going on in the background. You can work with local projects and exchange bins if you prefer (we can even set-up in and out boxes for this), alternatively we can discuss adding SalonProjects for online project sharing with Avid Bin Locking. The SalonCloud app for Mac or Windows makes connecting to our services  simple and secure.

Once delivered our SyncBox couldn’t be simpler to setup. Plug one cable into your internet router and the other cable into your editing system. One of the Salon team will then remote in (with your permission) and configure the box with your specific machine. Once activated your box will keep in sync with the rest of your team and any other parts of your workflow that we have configured (such as cloud backup or on-set connections) you won’t need to do anything else. Media is management automatically in the background without any interruptions to your work.

Our network operations centre keeps a constant eye on all SalonSync boxes and file transfers. Our system has automated alerting ensuring we never miss a beat.

Our system is encrypted and data is fully verified throughout the transfer. Unless you opt for Salon CloudProjects, your data never touches our servers and is kept constantly secure using a number of different protocols. SalonSync has been approved by many of the major studios. For a full security brief please contact a Salon Account Manager.

With one of our MiniSync setups on set or access to our web upload portal from anywhere your rushes can be in your edit in no time at all and all automatically saving your team hours of manual work.

SalonSync can be integrated with on premise Nexis for a hybrid cutting room/work from home workflow.

Each user has the SalonSync App (Mac or PC) to monitor transfers, see user status and also summon an engineer to help out in case you have a question!

The latest addition to the SalonSync ecosystem. KOGAN monitors all boxes and when it see’s one offline for more than 15 minutes it emails the user to alert them. Then, when it comes back online it emails again to let them know.
