INTRODUCING BEBOP

BeBop Technology creates highly specialized cloud-based services for Media & Entertainment.

Our core product provides cloud-based editorial workstations and storage that deliver the same quality and fidelity as a local workstation.

Instead of moving your content to your editorial tools, BeBop moves the tools to your content. This makes it possible to fully realize the power of the Cloud for Media & Entertainment workflows.

BeBop delivers on this ambitious promise through partnerships with Teradici and DSB Consulting. Teradici provides the basis for the high-quality user experience through its core desktop remoting protocol, and DSB adds more than 6 years of Cloud application development, architecture and ongoing operations experience.

The result is an extremely powerful platform that evolves editorial workflow to a truly cloud-based ideal.

  • Customizable Workstations: as many as you need, on demand
  • Storage: as much as you need, on demand
  • Simplicity: exactly what you need to do, the way you’re used to doing it
