Studio 51 is a Mumbai and Beijing-based visual effects production studio, dedicated to the film, entertainment, and advertising industries. Studio 51 offers professional services including VFX, concept design, pre-production, shoot supervision, and post-production. Studio Head, Mr. Varun Hadkar, graduated from Manchester Business School and The University of Kent, UK , and has 19 years of experience in film and TV VFX. He has worked in the production of many famous film and TV blockbusters. In this interview, Varun shares some of his unforgettable production experiences and future plans for Studio 51 with us. Varun’s love for the film industry started in the early 2000s. He believes that each project that he has worked on has had its own unforgettable moments and challenges during the initial stage, shooting, and also post-shooting. His current role as a supervisor requires team management as well as understanding the requirements of clients and directors. His team, based in China and India, often uploads and Sync’s large amounts of data. Hence a stable, fast, and long-distance transfer service is vital for his work. Check out the Full Interview with Varun Hadkar! Raysync: Hi Varun! Thank you for accepting our interview! Would you briefly introduce yourself? Varun: I studied commerce and finance during my undergrad years. I also had a keen interest in filmmaking and started in the film/ television industry back then, by doing small jobs in productions like MTV. After doing a few gigs, I landed a job in Rhythm and Hues, which was one of the most highly-reputed companies, over a decade ago. After gaining a great deal of valuable experience at RnH, I left India and went to the UK to pursue further studies and work. Its was here that I completed my Masters from the University of Kent and a few years later, my MBA, from the University of Manchester. I had the opportunity to learn from and work together with some fantastic people in world-class studios. From there, I travelled to Asia— worked with Double Negative, in Singapore then BASE, in China for a few years. I’ve worked on many aspects of film — including producing, partially directing, and supervising. With my combined experience in these areas, I was able to establish Studio 51. We started as a VFX company but have diversified into Film production, AI, virtual production, and film making too. Raysync: Could you share unforgettable production experiences with us? Varun: Back when I was working with DNEG on a movie called Bridge of Spies produced by Spielberg, there were about 60-70 shots of VFX which were managed by a small team. In production, we generally do these temp comps to show the director what the shot looks like. Everybody did a version for their own shot, every shot is different. My shot went to the Director, Producer, and Spielberg's comment came in, “this looks great, final”! This was a big highlight for me. First off, this never happens on a shot of that scale. And for me, I got a direct comment from him. This was a great moment. He is a personality a lot of fans, filmmakers, artists look up to. Raysync: As a visual effects supervisor for Avengers, Salvage Marines, and Wandering Earth, what's the most challenging part, and how did you make it? Varun: Every project is different. With Avengers I was with Base, working under ILM. The great thing was that ILM gave us creative freedom. However, that also made the task that much challenging— getting the creative process approved by the director, in our case director Usually, the process of approval goes through a number of steps until we reach the director's approval. With some luck and with the help of our talented artists, the work that we produced at Base was high quality and was approved by ILM. The director's approval too came fairly quickly. For Wandering Earth, I think one of my biggest challenges was the language barrier. The entire crew spoke Chinese. Being on the set, trying to get the ideas across in front of the director, ensuring the crew understood each aspect, basically taking massive chunks of work, breaking it down to parts and funnelling it to key people, so that we were all on the same page— that was one of the most challenging things for me. This was a large-scale sci-fi film, so it definitely came with its usual challenges. Creatively, most aspects progressed steadily since the director already had a great vision and we also already had a fabulous concept artist. We had an experienced, talented art director, so that made things smooth. The film did really well, turned out to be one of the biggest blockbusters in China. Salvage Marines, finished production in early April 2022. It hasn’t been released yet. Our teams in China and India have worked tirelessly on this. It's quite challenging to get the two teams in one pipeline, one workflow, and one structure. We are always keen to produce high-quality work, so we try our best to harness the strength of each artist and that, sometimes means bringing them together on a project, in spite of their physical location. Here it becomes extremely important to manage teams and workflow in an efficient and orderly manner. The pandemic period has especially been challenging for our industry too. While office premises were locked-down as per government mandates, projects rolled on as scheduled. In order to meet deadlines without outsourcing work, resources needed careful re-allocation and teams required restructuring. Raysync: Thanks for sharing. May we know your use case in data transfer? Varun: At times we face a problem of disk space in the company . In 2020, covid issues led us to try out cloud servers. We decided to move ahead with your services for a few reasons. One of them being agility — the speedy response and the pro-activeness displayed, while solving issues was a plus point for us. We felt that we were able to save significant amount of time. The other key aspect that drove our choice was the ability to control user accounts and permissions. Raysync is TPN certified, and you have a vast number of functionalities which is always great. We have a lot of data being transferred between our teams in India and China - for this, we needed a stable service that works seamlessly in both locations. When we tried Raysync, it just worked. The software is light and has all the features we need. We needed quick, efficient solutions and you guys checked all the boxes!
Introduction A point-to-point connection in telecommunications relates to a communication between two terminals or nodes. Point-to-point is shortened to P2P sometimes. In sharing platforms or in other data-sharing protocols between people, this use of P2P is separate from the use of P2P which means peer-to-peer. For instance, a telephone call when one phone is connected to another, and only the others could hear what one caller says. In contrast, this is a topology for point-to-multipoint or broadcast communication, where several nodes can receive information from a node. Additional instances of point-to-point links include leased lines, microwave relays, and two-way radio. For example, radio and television broadcasts are points-to-multiple. Have you used P2P? P2P transfer is now widely used to share files by many enterprises in their work after LAN, FTP, and HTTP are outdated. P2P transfer, known as point-to-point transfer, is an instant file transfer mode, which aimed to enable all clients to provide resources, including bandwidth, storage space, and computing capacity. P2P transfer technology has wide application scenarios, such as audio, video, and data sharing in various formats. How does P2P technology transfer files instantly? Why P2P transfer is accepted widely by many enterprises? In this article, let’s start with these two questions and explore the answers to point-to-point transfer. Everything about P2P Transfer in One Picture With the growing number of IP cores combined on one chip, the system-on-chip architecture is able to deploy complicated applications. The enormous need for communication and the ample computing capability on the chip put a considerable burden on the architecture in communication. Scalable communication architectures are therefore needed to implement future systems efficiently. Two types of communication systems, namely point-to-point and bus-based designs have traditionally been explored. At the expense of the specific channels between all communicating IP pairs, P2P communication designs can provide the most communication performance. However, in terms of high complexity, expense, and design effort these designs are poorly scalable. By contrast, bus systems can connect a few dozen IP cores economically and eliminate the complexity of the system and the specific cables required by P2P systems. The traditional HTTP transfer is to copy data to the client via server, thus the transfer speed is restricted by the bandwidth. Especially in today's network environment, the large amount of clients connects to one server, the bandwidth of servers will be shared, and the bandwidth of clients is difficult to be fully utilized, resulting in low efficiency of overall data transfer. In general data transfer, client A and client B is essential to build a connection to the server, and then data will be transfer through the channel built by the server and data recipient. P2P transfer technology builds the direct channel between client A and client B, shorten the original upload-download "1+1" time to 1; Secondly, "client A-server-client b" is turned to "client A-client b", which does not transit through the server and does not consume the expensive storage space of the server. Figure 1. P2P Transfer in One Picture Cons & Pros of P2P Transfer P2P technology is popular in many industries such as film and media, Internet TV, telemedicine, it not only provides freedom and facility to data transfer but also integrates all potential Internet resources. In technical expert’s opinion, P2P transfer is a kind of instant technology for quick data moving and sharing, it is beneficial to creating opportunities for enterprises in today’s market environment driven by data. However, with 5G emerging and the continuous development of information technology, P2P transfer is undoubtedly a double-blade sword, so it’s difficult for enterprises to step forward. Pros: Low cost: save the cost on the server. Efficiency improved: remove the intermediate procedures and establish simple connections. High stability: eliminate the server-centered single-point service in the past, form the decentralized P2P transfer organization, which solved the fault problem caused by the central single point. Cons: Network bandwidth resources are consumed in large quantities: The concurrent connection of P2P transfer makes the resources consumed in large quantities, it is easy to cause network congestion and reduce the performance of other applications. Inconvenient management: The P2P transfer is decentralized, the amount of users is huge thus it’s hard to take care of all users. Security risks of data leakage: The widely use of P2P transfer leads to someone use the loopholes in the system to invade user privacy and destroy data. Some criminals even add viruses in the P2P transfer process, which poses a threat to users' computer security. The P2P transfer technology is not strong enough to satisfy enterprises’ various needs, therefore, there must be a breakthrough. According to whether the clients are in the same network environment, the difficulty degree of P2P transfer technology is different. What modern technologies can be used to optimize and how to optimize? Let's continue to explore the principle of P2P technology and try to find a breakthrough. P2P technology upgrading Based on NAT+Raysync The transmission protocol of Raysync has abandoned the use of transmission messages as both byte counts and TCP protocol. With its revolutionary UDP transmission method, Raysync overcomes faults in existing TCP-based file transfer protocols . The transmission speed of FTP/HTTP is hundreds of times higher and is not reduced by the size of the file, transmit distance, or network difficulties. Raysync can offer secure internal and external sharing of data, enabling you to securely upload, download and edit files on a user-friendly interface. Send huge files via mobile devices and web browsers in every location and anywhere. Characteristics Raysync transmission protocol may make full use of a broad network of bandwidths for the fastest transfer of data. It can enable users in the huge data distribution application scenario to finish the big data transfer in the least time. The multi-channel parallel transmission feature of the link is supported by RaySync Transmission Protocol. When a client interfaces between point B and point A, a multiplicity of unrelated data streams can quickly be transferred in Parallel via the multi-parallel channel property. The transfer of these data streams does not require the handshake connection process, which considerably enhances the transmission in real-time. Raysync transmission protocol is UDP-based and may transit over various NAT devices smoothly. Here we divided into two situations for analysis: On the same network Assume that the internal network interface is 1000M, the LAN bandwidth is 10M, and the bandwidth utilization rate is 50%. Client A and Client B are in the same network environment, as shown in the following figure. If the traditional file transfer method is adopted, the A user needs to upload the file to the server first, and then B can download it from the server, there only 10M network bandwidth will be utilized in the whole transfer process. While through point-to-point transfer, A and B can directly establish a connection, file transfer makes full use of the network bandwidth of 1000M, and the transfer efficiency can be improved by 100X. Figure 2. P2P technology on the same network Raysync combined the P2P technology with Raysync ultra-high-speed transfer protocol, the network bandwidth is fully utilized up to 96%. The file transfer process is accelerated, the TB-level big data and massive data transfer have never been easier. Figure 3. P2P technology upgrading Based on NAT+Raysync On the different network Client A and client B are in two different network environments, and they need to try to connect with the target end to judge whether they can penetrate the network to establish communication. The P2P transfer between two clients will be different according to different clients. Several common P2P transfer methods through middleware include Relaying, Connection reversal, UDP hole punching. Through the following characteristic comparison table, we can simply grasp the characteristics and application scenarios of these methods. Table 1. Characteristics and compassion table According to the methods listed above, Raysync P2P transfer will try to connect with the recipient end in priority. If it is failed to connect, it will be connected by reverse connection or UDP punching. If it is still failed to connect, then the server transfers will be adopted. Raysync will automatically select the best transfer mode in the whole process, reduce the network burden and make full use of network resources. Besides, the P2P transfer based on UDP needs to consider the type of NAT, because the penetration ways of different NAT combinations are not consistent, some can penetrate, while some cannot. Figure 4. P2P technology on the different networks Digging deep into NAT penetration technology, Raysync combines more than 10 NAT penetration technologies with Raysyncb ultra-high-speed transfer protocol and simultaneously applies on P2P transfer. In practical application, the penetration effect of these 10 NAT combinations can meet the current P2P transfer needs. Even in the face of a few impenetrable situations, Raysync may still be able to improve the transfer efficiency and find the optimal solution for P2P transfer. A More Universal P2P Transfer through Innovation on Speed and Management Transfer acceleration ensures efficiency improving In the point-to-point transfer, the patented Raysync ultra-high-speed transfer protocol is adopted. This protocol can eliminate the bottleneck at the bottom layer, it is immune to limitation of the traditional network and hardware, fully utilize the network bandwidth, and realize ultra-low latency, high speed, and end-to-end output service, the transfer rate is improved by nearly one hundred times, thus easily achieves the safe, controllable and stable transfer of TB-level large files and massive small files. Figure 5. P2P technology on the different networks about penetration and acceleration Comparison of the point-to-point transfer efficiency Test environment: Shenzhen-Beijing, network latency 35ms~45ms, packet loss rate 1% Server: Alibaba cloud Shenzhen, CentOS 8.3, 2 vCPU 4 GiB, bandwidth 100M, SSD disk ClientA: Alibaba cloud Shenzhen, CentOS 8.3, 2 vCPU 4 GiB, bandwidth 100M, SSD disk ClientB: Alibaba cloud Beijing, CentOS 8.3, 2 vCPU 4 GiB, bandwidth 100M, SSD disk File transfer is automatic For team collaboration, Raysync supports automatically receive point-to-point files from your partners. Compared to the traditional P2P transfer method, Raysync saves your time spend on manually file reception. The auto file reception can be realized with one click to enable the “Allow to receive transfer files from partners” button. A data asset is strictly monitored The admin user can monitor every single task in the admin console. Enter Raysync admin console – Point-to-Point transfer, you could view the point-to-point transfer account, IP, task name, receiver ID, country, states, city, total file transmission quantity, and transmission speed. In the meantime, it supports viewing the details of the point-to-point transfer task being transmitted and stopping the operation, and supports one-click viewing and downloading for historical transfer tasks. All files and individuals traceable, each P2P task can be controlled by the admin. The comprehensive upgrade made by Raysync on P2P transfer overcomes the drawbacks of file and user management, enables point-to-point transfer to better meet the enterprise needs, and helps enterprises manage data more efficiently. Bank-level data security Based on the needs of customers in industries such as film and media, IT Internet, Raysync adopts AES-256+TLS encryption technology between client and server to guarantee end-to-end data security. Aiming at the port problem, Raysync only needs to expose one port, which can meet all users' access needs and greatly reduce the risk of firewall port exposure; Hash verification protection is carried out at the transfer message level, file block, and the whole file to ensure the integrity of the transfer content. The optimization made by Raysync on point-to-point transfer, which has outstanding performance in performance, reliability, and security. The upgraded management design meets the needs of modern enterprises. As a one-stop solution provider for large file transfer, Raysync can be used as a tool for enterprises to realize fast file cooperation, and can also be used as an enterprise data management platform to provide data transfer services for industries such as film and media, finance, IT Internet, etc.

Interview with Hasan Köroğlu, Founder of Kadraj Group, the Biggest Digital Delivery Hub for Turkish Dramas
Hasan Köroğlu is the founder of Kadraj Group. His knowledge and experience on the Internet and audio visual technologies as a producer for many years had Kadraj growing fast. Kadraj is the leading company on QC, localization, and delivery services in Turkey, which was established by Hasan in February 2019. It has been 12 years and 8 months until now. It was just a decade ago when Turkish dramas became popular all over the world, just after two years later Kadraj was established. It was perfect timing for their services, and they are working together with the major market actor including producers, distributors, and broadcasters over these years. Today they are the pioneer in this market, in their domain. Here’s the interview between Hasan Köroğlu and Raysync, in which Hasan shared his use case in data delivery and the difficulties his team met in the daily workflow. Raysync: Hi Hasan! Could you please describe your use case in worldwide content delivery? Hasan: Kadraj is the biggest digital delivery hub for Turkish dramas and Turkish series. Keeping in mind the demand for Turkish dramas on the world market that makes our position unique. After the latest progress on internet technologies and almost 95% of the deliveries are completed via internet, just make it clear, we are talking about deliveries of thousands of hours of content every month to over 40 countries and around 150 clients/broadcasters all over the world. This is why we need alternatives all the time and we are pushing the boundaries all the time. Raysync: What difficulties have your team met in the workflow? And how does Raysync helps to solve? Hasan: Especially creating new accounts and user permissions, user management - they are major problems. And there were some issues with the stability of the platforms we were using back then, also bandwidth management was another big problem for us. Raysync solved almost all of them, especially the bandwidth management is really important for us and Raysync did it. We are glad. Raysync: What projects did Raysync handle the data transfer for? Hasan: Hundreds of Turkey series and we have sent over 200 thousands of unique commercial hours of TV content. For the last 10 years, the TV content that has been exported to other countries from Turkey, has been prepared and delivered by Kadraj, by us. Projects Kadraj Participated Raysync: How big the file is for each transfer? Hasan: Let's say it's between 20 gigabytes to one terabytes for each file. May because let’s say a 45 minutes episode is around 20 gigabytes in MXF format, and Turkey series are around two hours long and two hours long 4k raw content is more than a terabyte, those are single files. We have over six petabytes data at the office right now. But keep in mind this is not a big data, this is a volumetric data. We do not have that much files, but the files are really big. Raysync: How do you like Raysync’s data transfer and acceleration services? Hasan: Actually, this is something we really haven't thought about it, because just after implementing the software, the platform into our workflow, we got used it very quickly and feel like we haven't migrated but we were using it from the very beginning. It's really easy, we did like it very much. Because it's easy and it's obviously planned and developed with really experienced people, they know what they're doing. Raysync: What's next plan with Kadraj? Hasan: There are lots of plans. For the last couple of months we are working on ISO 27001 certification and we are in the process of TPN assessment. And this is why we are updating our structure, everything at the office, so there will be lots of changes in the coming a few months, maybe before the new year and a lot will change at Kadraj. Special thanks to Hasan Köroğlu from Kadraj Group.

The director can be in Rio while the editor works in São Paulo. The Lab of O2 Pós The Work Environment of O2 Pós Check out the Full Interview with Mario De Oliveira: Raysync: Hi Mario! Thank you for accepting our interview! Would you briefly introduce yourself? Mario: My name is Mario, I’m a chief IT manager of O2 Pós in Brazil. And we have finding over internet some software to improve our FTP client to send you some data for our client, and we tested Raysync and it was very good. Raysync: Could you share with us your use case in data transfer? Mario: We have a small client that we need to send the data, the videos to them and we were using another large file transfer solution. We have a playback video that’s okay but the speed of the transmission is not so good. And Raysync it's very fast and best than the other large file transfer solutions. In a little over four months of Raysync usage, O2 has already transferred about 26 advertisement and entertainment projects. The transfer time had a considerable improvement. Uploading files that used to take 2h to 3h, now take between 20 to 40 minutes with Raysync, greatly improving our workflow with major players such as Netflix, Amazon, and HBO. Raysync: May us know currently how big is the transfer volume in your post-production project? Mario: About five terabytes. Raysync: The collaboration between and across the teams is important in post-production, could you please elaborate on how your team achieves high-efficient collaboration? Mario: Basically communication. On a weekly basis, we send for O2 Play, our film distribution division, Masters, Trailers, Artwork and Extras. The content we send is usually heavier and the migration to Raysync was essential in terms of file transfer speed. Another entertainment project that was one of the first featuring Raysync was the Gramado Film Festival, and the experience with receiving and uploading movies files was great in terms of organization, user creation, and speed as well. Some works of O2 Pós Some Has to Die Invisible City Raysync: Is it possible to know which projects are use Raysync for data transfer? Mario: Projects that used Raysync includes Sustagen, Renner, Kinder and Huggies. We love Raysync, it’s so good, and it's so fast.

According to the data collected by Box Office Mojo, film industry are facing enormous crisis in front of COVID-19, not just because of the nearly empty cinemas, but also the way the whole industry works. When the crisis hit, they have to learn to attend events virtually and cooperate remotely, resulting in many new problems in team collaboration and data exchange, etc. On BaM live which was held by IABM on 22nd September, 2021, Raysync was excited to have Ben Cheung, VP of Raysync, led a discussion on how to speed up the global transfer for film productions, uncovering the impact COVID-19 has on the film industry and the importance of fast and cost-effective file transfer and its future development. In this live event, following topics are discussed: Current situation of film production What can be done to solve those problems Case studies The future of file transfer Q&A: How do you see the future of file transfer services? At the beginning of the event, Ben analyzed the current situation of film production with some infographics showing the drastic drop-down of film box office and its revenues. Besides, massive changes were made in film production environment in order to keep the staff safe. Millions went home to work and used digital technologies to continue to execute their daily tasks. That's why a fast and cost-effective data transfer solution has become more and more important in long-distance team collaboration. What can be done to solve those problems? The data volumes that need to be shared and transferred in our daily work has soared, but the traditional TCP-based transfer solution can’t help to achieve high-efficient delivery. The best alternative UDP-based file transfer solution - Raysync Among the alternative solutions to FTP, most of them are either expensive or complicated to use. Based upon Raysync UDP high-speed transfer protocol, Raysync breaks through the bottleneck of large file transfer which satisfy enterprises’ file tranfer needs by building an intelligent transfer platform that processes and moves massive data at an unprecedented speed. Raysync’s intelligent data compression technology can also effectively reduce the network loads, providing breakpoint resume and data verification to ensure stable and reliable data transfer. The intelligent management system is able to meet the business requirements of enterprises such as data sync and backup. Best of all, Raysync provides an SMB version that starts from $599/year! Actually, it does help a myriad of enterprises in accelerating data transfer, Ben also shared two successful cases in film post-production and render farm, respectively. Case 1 – Film Post-production Challenges: Most film and television productions are edited and created by people scattered among different firms and overseas institutions, in which a large amount of audio, video, images, and other content has to be uploaded and downloaded. This mass amount of data flow has led to low efficiency of file interactions, and the delay of the production cycle may seriously affect the production efficiency. Solutions: Raysync provides the specific audio-visual content transfer solution for the film post-production industry to accelerate the transfer of a massive amount of content through Raysync’s ultra-high-speed transfer protocol. Intelligently optimize the network bandwidth and effectively reduce the network latency and packet loss caused by transnational and ultra-long distance transfer. Eventually, the final result is beyond clients' expectations. Case 2 – Render Farm Challenges: In Render farm, the daily transfer volume is around 30TB every day, the maximum number of files for dingle transfer is around 2 million.
