How high-speed internet over nbn™ Enterprise Ethernet is improving data transfer times for the film, television and visual effects industry.
Cumulus Visual Effects is a Byron Bay based professional visual effects (VFX) studio with a team of more than 20 VFX professionals working with some of the biggest names in film and television.
The business requires a great deal of collaboration between teams. The ability to send and receive data in a timely manner is critical to productivity, along with working with external partners and sending large files on a daily basis.
Connectivity equity in regional areas
The vision of Cumulus Visual Effects was to build a working environment in an idyllic location that creatives would want to work and play in. This was to ensure they could attract industry-leading talent, and provide employees with a work-life balance that supported them doing their best work.
With regular data transfers in excess of a terabyte, upload speeds capped at 10Mbps were a huge hindrance to the team at Cumulus. So, they reached out to Aussie Broadband to find a solution over the nbn™ network that would help them to meet their exceptionally high data needs.
“We were on an ADSL connection; people thought I was crazy, I’d have to schedule my completion date three days before the delivery date to be able to deliver the data.”
