5th Kind has joined the Box Technology and Services Partner Program. The new integration is part of 5th Kind’s new Script-to-Screen initiative, which streamlines production workflows from preproduction through postproduction.
The relationship brings together Box’s content-management capabilities with 5th Kind’s 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,” says 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, creative ways to solve our customers’ technical challenges.”
Core by 5th Kind is a secure, cloud-based collaboration and asset-management platform focused on improving workflows 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 in any location to engage in the creative process 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, integrated applications and product services, like Box Sign. 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 customers retain access to Box’s security and compliance features as well as its 1,400+ integrated applications.
