The Raysync under Yunyu Technology provides high-performance, stable, and safe data transfer services for IT, film and television, biological genes, manufacturing, and many other industries. At present, 2W+ enterprises adopt the big data transfer scheme provided by Raysync to solve the data interaction problems faced by enterprises.

This time, a well-known film and television production company in Shanghai cooperated with the Raysync team. For the film and television production industry, post-editing is the process of re-creation, and its importance is equal to that of pre-shooting. TV series, movies, and so on all need to cut out story clues and plots from massive film and television materials, and also need to add animation, sound effects, flowers, and the other rendering atmosphere to strengthen emotions and enhance the visibility of works.

In the post-production process, the flow of video materials runs through the whole business process. In addition to excellent non-editing software and non-editing workstations, enterprises also need to deploy a set of high-efficiency and high-stability transfer software to ensure the transfer quality of massive materials and ensure the successful completion of film production.

Project Difficulties

The company is headquartered in Shanghai and needs to exchange materials with the team in Japan. Due to the extensive use of CG visual effects, VR shooting, 3D technology, etc., the film and television material files are getting larger and larger, with dozens of GB and hundreds of TB at every turn, and the transfer frequency is high, which requires to transfer almost every day. In addition, the company also has certain requirements for the timeliness of material transfer.

Before using Raysync, the company mainly used FTP and other traditional methods to transfer files, which often took two or three days to complete the transfer of a 10GB material, which seriously affected the production progress.

  1. A film may be shot in many places, and the changeable shooting location means that the transfer distance of materials is also changeable, including remote transfer, transnational transfer, intercontinental transfer, uploading, downloading, sharing, and other operations. The transfer scene is complex, with a large number and large capacity of transmitted materials, and the material flow is extremely slow. Such a complex transfer scene leads to the extremely unsmooth business process of the film and television production company, and the production progress is seriously lagging behind.

  2. As mentioned above, the shooting location is changeable, which also means that the network conditions of the shooting location are uncontrollable. If the materials are transmitted in remote areas with difficult conditions or deserts, the uploading and downloading of videos will sometimes be interrupted due to the poor network environment, and the team sometimes has to arrange special personnel to monitor the data transfer. Even so, there will often be material damage, video mosaic, etc., and the producer's efforts will be burned.

Unsafe transfer methods may also lead to the loss and theft of materials during the process of transfer. The content of the film and television industry is paramount, and the confidentiality of the data is very high. The material in the transfer process is maliciously stolen, which may eventually cause the copyright of the film to be infringed.

  1. Production teams are scattered all over the world, and the whole team needs close cooperation to ensure the efficient completion of tasks. When the production team is in different places and across countries, the transfer of massive film and television materials becomes a problem. With the popularization of high-definition 4K and 8K, the material capacity of the film and television industry is also increasing. Traditional network transfer methods such as FTP are difficult to ensure the efficiency of large file transfer, which seriously affects the production cycle. This method has been gradually abandoned by film and television organizations.

For the needs and pain points of the film and television post-team, Raysync has launched a data transfer solution for the film and television industry. Raysync is based on UDP transfer protocol, which overcomes the bottleneck of traditional data transfer software (such as FTP, HTTP), provides the highest transfer speed, perfect integration, and control functions for the film and television industry, and brings real high-performance data transfer experience for the film and television industry.

The Solutions of Raysync

Raysync has a deep insight into the pain points of the film and television industry, helping customers install and deploy the Raysync server in Shanghai. Japanese team members can log in to Raysync through IP address+port number, and easily upload and download film and television materials.

Comparison of the transfer data before and after using Raysync:

transfer speed

time consuming

The company used FTP transfer before. After comparison, the transfer speed has been significantly improved after using Raysync, and the upload and download speed has exceeded 90% of FTP; Raysync shortens the transfer time of video materials to the greatest extent. It takes 192 minutes and 39 seconds to transfer 10GB files from Shanghai to Japan by FTP, while it takes only 12 minutes and 42 seconds to transfer by Raysync. Raysync saves the team at least 93% of the transfer time.

The Raysync also brings the following conveniences to the film and television team:

Complete team and authority control

In the traditional FTP solution, the folder structure and permission control are relatively simple, and Raysync provides more detailed, scientific, and complete file and personnel management functions, which meets the multi-line and complex work requirements of the film and television industry.

Supports automatic management of the transfer tasks

Through Raysync Client, film and television workers can conveniently monitor the transfer of material, uploading and downloading tasks, obtain information such as transfer progress, speed, and status, and can pause, renew and cancel the transfer tasks.

Supports the switching of Chinese and English

The film and television teams are scattered all over the world, and the Raysync switching function between Chinese and English perfectly overcomes the language barrier of transnational transfer, and the global data transfer is unimpeded.

The Features of Raysync

Optimize the transfer performance, and transfer video materials efficiently

When the network environment is very poor, the transfer is often interrupted due to network failures, sudden power outages, etc. The Raysync breakpoint resume function ensures that the remaining materials can be downloaded from the recording position after the system is started again, with a packet loss rate of 0.00%.

Fast file transfer shortens the production cycle

Through the optimization of Raysync protocol and automatic compression and packaging, the network bandwidth resources can be utilized and saved to the maximum extent, and the data transfer experience can be provided for enterprise users. The transfer speed of video backhaul can reach more than 100 times that of traditional means, which greatly shortens the time consumption of video material transfer.

Enterprise-level security to avoid copyright infringement

Raysync has many data encryption schemes, which form an encryption tunnel between the sending and receiving ends of data to ensure that the material files will not be stolen or leaked during the video return process, so as to avoid the infringement of film copyright.

Flexible and efficient business management

Raysync completely records the complete behavior logs of users such as login, logout, upload, download, and link sharing, and auditors can regularly audit the operation behaviors of members, so as to guard against the occurrence of malicious data leakage.
