WHAT IS BEBOP?

Bebop is a style of jazz characterized by fast tempo, instrumental virtuosity and improvisation.

BeBop Technology takes this same approach to creating cloud-based workflow solutions.

The BeBop team includes the world’s preeminent Cloud workflow experts. We have unique expertise navigating the public Cloud environment from every vantage point: technically, operationally, and financially.

BeBop is the only company in the market that can move post-production workflows to the Cloud, and we create solutions that enable our customers to make the giant leap into the next great technology migration.


WHY SHOULD YOU BEBOP?

Moving to the Cloud is essential, but not easy because it isn’t plug-and-play.

Without the necessary tools and understanding of how to navigate the public Cloud, you cannot capitalize on its benefits. In many industries verticals, and media especially, the global scale of piracy is forcing companies to rush to the Cloud for protection.

This transition is happening NOW.

You may need BeBop if any of these questions sound familiar:

  • How do we move content to the Cloud efficiently?
  • How do we organize it or find it once its there?
  • Once its in the Cloud, don’t I still need to pull it down to edit, etc.?
  • Can I store my content in the Cloud for a long time at low cost?
  • It would be great to have a Cloud disaster plan in place but who has the time? Or the budget?

BEBOP PLATFORM


BeBop created a proprietary platform designed to do everything needed to virtualize workflows and move them to the Cloud, securely.

For content companies and other verticals BeBop provides a mission-critical solution for moving to the Cloud, and one that is currently missing from the value chains the Public Clouds provide.

BEBOP SECURITY

BeBop is the new industry standard for securing content workflows.

BeBop is the only globally-deployed software that combines our proprietary IP stack with the PCoIP* container. BeBop can migrate any GPU- or CPU-based workflow to the Cloud in the most secure fashion and with the most powerful model available globally.

BeBop has successfully completed MPAA and studio Content Security audits.

  • BeBop streams an image of the desktop; content files never leave the security of their private network
  • Images are compressed and encrypted and then sent to the BeBop client for decryption and decompression
  • Image processing storage is isolated down to the spindle

* The PCoIP security module leverages the AES 256 and NSA Suite B cyphers, which meet the highest level of security required by governments.

BUSINESS CONTINUITY & DISASTER RECOVERY


BeBop Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery is the first affordable solution for Media & Entertainment.

  • Backs up everything and makes it available in a variety of ways
  • Ability to backup content directly to the Cloud iteratively from dailies to rough cut to locked picture
  • Backup integration with industry standard third parties
  • Creates critical file-based metadata, thumbnails and indexes material for searchability
  • In case of loss of cutting room environment or physical loss of production’s drives or storage, BeBop allows for seamless continuation of the editorial process

TESTIMONIALS

We’re not the only people who think BeBop rocks.

  • Having BeBop and being able to work a few hours at a time is great. I would never do that normally since the studio is 42 miles from my house. I’ve actually spent more time with my kids this week than I can remember.
    Editor
  • We want our students to be working on the most current platforms, and BeBop and the Cloud are the future.
    Film School Professor
  • I’ve sat in a London coffee shop tethered to my 4G phone and been able to seamlessly edit on Adobe Premiere from HD source material.
    Producer & Editor
  • I’m loving the technology. My quality of life has enhanced tremendously, and now the problem will be going back after a taste of BeBop.
