iconik and Base Media Cloud Partner for Easy Media Collaborations

Cantemo® and BASE Media Cloud Partner to Deliver Integrated Cloud Services for Little Dot Studios

We’re excited to share that we’ve partnered with BASE Media Cloud to integrate Cantemo iconik®, our cloud video hub, into BASE Media Cloud’s managed cloud services platform. The integration will enable the organisation and easy collaboration of media content throughout the production, post-production and delivery workflow.

BASE Media Cloud delivers globally-available cloud services for digital media companies of all sizes, enabling them to securely store, process, edit, and distribute media online. The managed services mean media companies, with little-to-no in-house engineering resources, can benefit from the power and cost-savings of the cloud, whilst increasing the security and flexibility of their media file operations.

The integration of iconik with the BASE Media Cloud platform makes it easy for BASE Media Cloud clients to ‘plug in’ cloud services to their existing post production infrastructure. They also benefit from opportunities to share and collaborate with global stakeholders and manage multi-Petabyte media archives with one easy-to-use cloud-based interface.

Post-production team working

iconik is a hybrid video hub for managing, sharing, and collaborating on media. We designed it to keep media assets secure and organized, while ensuring global access. Using a hybrid architecture, assets can be stored in the cloud, on-premises, or as a mixture of the two, while enabling access to the entire library. It includes a powerful API making customization and integration with other tools simple.

Both company founders are excited about how this partnership will make media collaboration easier for their clients.

“We have had huge demand from clients wanting an easy-to-use post-production, collaboration and archive MAM, seamlessly integrated with Adobe and our unique, zero egress cost BASE Media Cloud storage and file transfer services. The BASE and iconik teams have developed a joint solution which gives access to cutting-edge tech for users and companies of all sizes, available out-of-the-box, with minimal cost. We are very excited about working together and we are already rolling out multiple iconik accounts for our global clients.”
- Ben Foakes, Founder & Managing Director, BASE Media Cloud
“Media companies are increasingly understanding the value of the cloud across the entire media workflow. BASE is enabling flexibility with tailored cloud solutions that meet the fast-changing needs of the digital media industry. It is great that iconik is able to complement that.”
- Parham Azimi, CEO, Cantemo

iconik has already been deployed by BASE Media Cloud as part of an implementation for Little Dot Studios. They are a digital content studio and broadcaster specializing in production of original and brand funded content, distribution and monetization of video content across all social platforms.

“The combination of the BASE Media Cloud storage, file transfer and transcoding services, integrated with Cantemo iconik provides a platform fit for growth, and avoids heavy allocation of time and resource on constant re-assessment of internal hardware solutions and processes. This frees up capital that can then be focused on creative work and content distribution i.e. services our clients in turn value."
- Kevin Gibbons, CFO, Little Dot Studios
