BeBop Technology Launches BeBop Rocket, Media & Entertainment’s First Affordable, Cloud-Centric Content Transfer Tool

September 14, 2017

LOS ANGELES – (September 15, 2017) – As IBC2017 kicks off in Amsterdam, BeBop Technology, the world’s leading provider of Cloud workflow solutions, announced today the immediate availability of BeBop Rocket, the first content transfer tool designed specifically for the Cloud and optimized for speed, security, and cost-effectiveness.

“BeBop is the media and entertainment industry’s most secure cloud-based post-production platform, and a critical missing link in the marketplace has been an affordable way to quickly and safely upload content to the Cloud,” said Bruce K. Long, CEO and co-founder of BeBop Technology. “BeBop Rocket is an elegant, purely cloud-focused solution which we can offer for a fraction of the price of on premises tools like Aspera or Signiant.”

Currently deployed with several customers, BeBop Rocket is a patent-pending secure, real-time content transportation and ingestion tool. For production companies, broadcasters, content producers and post houses, BeBop Rocket is the fastest and most economical application to move dailies, completed projects or archived assets into any public or custom Cloud. Features include:
• Ability to transfer any file size for one price, and any format or codec from any location
• Fully encrypted and automatic backups of original camera footage to facilitate archiving, business continuity and disaster recovery
• Content is viewable anywhere in the world on the secure BeBop platform
• Files cannot be downloaded except by authorized persons
• Footage is never physically transported to an unsecure location

An additional premium feature of BeBop Rocket is BeBop Fusion, which enables hot folders that seamlessly and automatically mirror on premises content assets in the Cloud.

BeBop Rocket is available as either a standalone solution or inclusive with broader implementation of BeBop’s proprietary post-production platform. The BeBop platform virtualizes workflows in the Cloud utilizing both proprietary and industry-standard tools and services. It enables editing, processing, rendering, managing, transporting and delivering assets from anywhere in the world, securely, from as little as a 20Mbps connection. For media and entertainment companies this is a mission-critical solution for moving to the Cloud, and one that is currently missing from the value chains the public Clouds provide.

BeBop Technology’s ability to create the most secure solutions for post-production stems from its more than 20 years of experience designing uniquely defined Cloud workflow solutions for Media & Entertainment and other industries. The 2016 merger of BeBop and DSB Consulting brought together two indelibly intertwined companies; DSB founder David Benson also co-founded BeBop and serves as its CTO. Prior to the launch of BeBop Technology, DSB incubated and developed the core technology for BeBop and became the de facto wing of BeBop for customized Cloud workflow engagements.

“Today DSB Consulting is now BeBop Managed Services, and the new BeBop Technology is greater than the sum of its parts,” said Benson. “BeBop is uniquely positioned to lead and greatly accelerate the Media & Entertainment industry’s migration to the Cloud.”

BeBop Technology will be showcasing its solutions in Amsterdam throughout IBC2017 (Sept. 15-19) in the Amazon Web Services booth (C80), located in Hall 5 of the RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre.
