MUMBAI: FX Networks has signed a deal with Prime Focus Technologies (PFT) to offer cloud enabled DAX production workflow solutions for all FX shows and pilots.

PFT’s agreement with FX Networks includes delivery of cloud enabled DAX production workflow solutions, including Digital Dailies, DAX Box and DAX Mobile for all FX shows and pilots. The deal marks FX as one of the first wave of buyers of the DAX Box, a DVR-like set-top box which supports secure HD streaming at home, office or theatre.

The aim of PFT is to enhance the value proposition to DAX’s marquee customers which includes major studio and broadcast networks like Warner Bros Television Studios, CBS Television Studios, 20th Century Fox Television Studios, Legendary Pictures, Fox Television Studios, A&E, Showtime, Starz, Relativity Media, Lionsgate and other independent production companies and studios.
