REACT has built in presets and transcoding capabilities that allows it to utilize media in a few different ways.
For instance, if you have press presets setup, you can use the same export for editorial media as you are using for your daily streaming site. That cuts down on the workload quite a lot because traditionally, the DIT would be creating the initial transcodes from the footage. And then an assistant editor would have to take those transcodes, the editorial media and do an additional export for the purpose of daily streaming for executives.
But that step in the process can be eliminated when you’re using ioGates.
So, it has an impact on both workload and on budget for the project. Because it does roll a couple of functions into one.
That means that the assistant editor on the project can focus on doing the most crucial work, which is assisting the editor and making sure that the project is managed properly.
It’s such a crucial role in the chain, and some very costly errors can be made here.
