Partners Make the World Go Round

Be a part of the ecosystem that is transforming media workflow.

Why your customers want Ci?
Once your customers Ci, they cannot un-Ci.
Once your media customers get a taste of Sony’s Ci Media Cloud Platform, they’ll never go back to conventional workflows. Forget about shipping hard drives from the set. Forget about making the client and the producer travel to the edit suite. Forget about repetitive, boring manual transcodes, QCs and file transfers. Sony’s Media Cloud Platform can do all of this, with less effort, greater automation and higher efficiency than ever before.
A cloud service built for media professionals.
Brought to you by Sony Professional Solutions, the Ci platform is the cloud service you’d design, if you had the time and the engineering bandwidth to pull it off. More than just generic storage, it’s a robust platform for all media workflows. Collaboration, media processing and workflow integration designed for professionals.
