International Software Awards Program Announces Initial Shortlist
San Francisco – July 13, 2022 – LucidLink, an innovative SaaS solution connecting creative teams around the world, has had its product Filespaces shortlisted in the 2022 SaaS Awards Program. LucidLink is recognized for its achievements in the category of Best SaaS product for Media & Publishing for its implementation with its customer, Final Pixel, the creative studio specializing in virtual production.
LucidLink Filespaces is a cloud-native file service that provides content creators with immediate access to media assets stored in the cloud. Explicitly designed for creative collaboration over distance, huge media files are immediately accessible from any location and any machine. Filespaces eliminates the need for downloading or syncing entire files, enabling collaboration on projects by distributed teams, simultaneously, across any geographic location. The company recently announced Filespaces 2.0, adding new functionality for massive scalability and faster, more secure remote collaboration.
LucidLink Filespaces is used by thousands of customers throughout the Media and Entertainment industry to enable remote collaboration. One customer, Final Pixel, is a global creative studio specializing in end-to-end virtual production for film, TV, and advertising. As a fully remote creative-led virtual production house, Final Pixel’s team spans across multiple contents and time zones, bringing their virtual production capabilities directly to their customers using a variety of cloud-based tools and in-house expertise. Final Pixel started using LucidLink Filespaces in late 2021 to help creative teams collaborate quickly and more effectively, eradicating the need of manually shipping drives filled with hundreds of terabytes of content between remote creative teams.
“There’s simply no comparison in terms of cost between using physical servers versus a cloud NAS solution like LucidLink, but LucidLink also has the performance of a full cloud NAS solution with the cost of object storage. That combination is a no-brainer,” said Dominic Maher, Technical Artist, Final Pixel.
“Creatives and enterprises alike are embracing our cloud-native solution, reaping the benefits of collaborating seamlessly and securely from anywhere ” said Peter Thompson, co-founder and CEO, LucidLink. “It is inspiring to hear about workflows that our customers previously found impossible without LucidLink. We are honored to be recognized in the SaaS Awards and are grateful for the commitment to excellence and innovation demonstrated by our team.”
Now in its seventh year of celebrating software innovation, the Software Awards program accepts entries worldwide, including the US, Canada, Australasia, EMEA and UK. Categories for 2022 include Best Enterprise-Level SaaS and Best Data-Driven SaaS, alongside new categories including ‘Most Agile or Responsive SaaS Solution of the Year’.
Head of operations for the SaaS Awards, James Williams, said: “Innovative technologies have always driven industry forward, and having disrupted the software business, SaaS continues to mature as a key driver for sustained improvement across manifold verticals.”
Winners are selected by a judging panel of international industry experts. SaaS Awards finalists will be announced on Tuesday 23 August 2022, with the ultimate category winners announced on Tuesday 13 September 2022.
