Virtual Post deploys BeBop Platform
LOS ANGELES – (September 17, 2018) – BeBop Technology, provider of robust and secure platforms and solutions for moving workflows to the cloud, announced today that London-based Virtual Post, one of U.K.’s most innovative post and content services companies, has deployed the BeBop cloud post-production platform, BeBop Rocket and BeBop Over the Shoulder (OTS) for use on a variety of its television, film, and advertising projects.
“Distributed or hybrid solutions are rapidly changing the face of post-production around the globe and Virtual Post is leading the charge with our incredibly talented and experienced team and growing ecosystem of cloud and on-prem tools – and BeBop is a pivotal piece of that ecosystem,” said Jon Lee, CEO of Virtual Post. “With the addition of BeBop OTS, our producers can now participate live in Virtual edit sessions to comment and provide feedback from anywhere in the world, just as they would by attending an edit session in the room.”
The BeBop cloud platform provides film, broadcast, and post-production companies with powerful and secure virtualized workspaces for remote editorial or VFX projects. BeBop runs industry-standard editing, titling, VFX, 3D modeling, animation, compositing, and motion graphics tools, on demand and in the cloud, from as small as a 20Mbps Internet connection.

As it strives to offer a completely cloud-based post-production facility, it has been working closely with BeBop Technology to ensure high quality client service, efficiency, and security for the editorial, review and approval processes. Virtual Post offers full-service post-production for media and entertainment projects such as TV production, short-form and feature work.
