About Sohonet

Sohonet was started in 1995 by a group of London-based post production facilities as a research project to explore the benefits and opportunities of high-speed connectivity..

Creating its own private network, Sohonet was able to significantly improve productivity by simplifying and accelerating workflows. Sohonet is now a privately owned company, following an MBO in 2003.

Since then, Sohonet has grown its network operations internationally and is renowned for creating the world’s largest independent media network. With offices in the UK (Soho and Pinewood Studios), Los Angeles and Sydney, our ever evolving and expansive Global Reach allows us to provide services to all major production centres worldwide.

Our product development team builds and delivers solutions that leverage this media network and our media industry expertise to deliver best-in-class solutions for our customers. The team prides itself on working practices that deliver the greatest value for our customers. We manage ourselves according to the principles of Lean, and we build great software by adhering to Scrum and Test-Driven Development.

Sohonet has been a technology driven company since its inception – consistently expanding and developing its systems, software and hardware to ensure it keeps ahead of the changing requirements of the media industry. Our principal team has extensive experience in applying technology to media production so that we always offer unrivalled knowledge to our customer base.
