Los Angeles, CA (May 12, 2021) — 5th Kind, Collaborative Media Solutions announced today a new integration with Box, the leading Content Cloud, joining its Box Technology and Services Partner Program. The new integration is part of 5th Kind’s new Script-to-Screen initiative streamlining production workflows from pre-production through post and beyond. The relationship brings together Box’s leading content management capabilities with 5th Kind’s deep production workflow expertise to help drive new standards around remote collaboration, security, and advanced metadata.
“5th Kind couldn’t be more excited to partner with Box,” said Steve Cronan, CEO and Founder of 5th Kind. “With the Box+CORE integration, content owners and their teams will enjoy a more streamlined experience during the creative and media management processes. We look forward to finding new and creative ways to solve our customers technical challenges.”
CORE by 5th Kind is a highly secure, cloud-based collaboration and asset management platform focused on improving production workflows from script-to-screen and supporting remote production. When files are uploaded into CORE from integrated tools like Box, and other sources such as live camera feeds from set, it automatically associates the metadata from the integrated system. This data makes every file a secure, reusable, findable asset as it moves through production workflows, file shares, and downloads. Every file is individually watermarked and granular permissions limit access to it.
The Box+CORE integration allows entertainment teams at any stage of production, from any location, to engage in the creative process, all from a browser, with nothing to install, download or configure. For CORE users, the Box integration extends the value of the Content Cloud’s collaboration tools, best-in-breed integrated applications, and enterprise-level product services, like Box Sign. With CORE, Box users gain access to faceted search, real-time review and collaboration, frame-accurate video annotations, granular access controls, and on-the-fly watermarking. Box customer’s retain access to Box’s security and compliance features as well as access to its 1,400+ integrated applications.
“The need for organizations to move fast and operate in the cloud is more important than ever,” said Jade McQueen, Vice President of Media & Entertainment, Retail & CPG at Box. “Over the last year, the M&E industry has risen to the challenge, but it is essential that we continue to give professionals the tools they need to produce the highest quality work from anywhere. We’re excited to collaborate with 5th Kind to make it easier for Box customers to work together in real-time, no matter their stage of production or location.”
Script-to-Screen is a 5th Kind initiative that features new and existing CORE product solutions suited for content owners and the teams who create, manage, and distribute that content.
