Users remain in control of their assets, with the ability to share or restrict access as required. Immediate access to footage in the cloud allows approved users to collaborate in real-time during production.
Boon director Derek Presley said, “Integrating iconik into our workflow on this film was a game-changer. It allowed me to easily review footage on-set with the cinematographer and change the shooting schedule accordingly. The ability to access and share raw footage almost immediately, allowed us to make adjustments to the production in ways that can really save a film.”

Iconik is an easy-to-use platform that enables teams to continue creating, editing, and distributing media content despite the challenges of the pandemic. It is designed to enable seamless, secure management and distribution of media files regardless of location.”
