FORK 4.0, the newest version of Primestream’s FORK Production Suite for managing and automating broadcast workflows, is being exhibited. With new modules, features, technological improvements, and integration with third-party broadcast solutions such as Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, hardware such as Harmonic MediaGrid, Quantum archiving solutions and end-to-end workflows with Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS), FORK 4.0 is even more responsive, powerful, extendable, and adept at managing large-scale and multisite installations. New modules include the customisable FORK Logger metadata-tagging tool that allows for logging live and prerecorded video as well as improvements to FORK’s underlying technology – such as FORK Drones, dynamic metadata forms, and scripts. The new FORK Logger 1.0 is a cross-platform module part of the acclaimed FORK Production Suite 4.0. The powerful metadata-tagging tool allows for logging live or prerecorded video with a tightly integrated and configurable user interface. FORK Logger 1.0 enables content loggers to tag video with defined metadata into the FORK environment effortlessly, making assets easier to manage, automate, and monetise. The heart of FORK Logger 1.0 is a dynamic GUI that contains form panels, button panels, video viewers, marker thumbnail lists, and a bin list of created events, all of which are tools that can be combined – many in a dynamic way – based on the content. FORK Logger supports multiple layouts per system. Users can work live with ingesting feeds or call up existing clips inside FORK. With FORK Logger 1.0, users can log video files so that they can be searched, filtered, and organised by any metadata entry inside FORK Content Navigator. Primestream exhibits version 2.0 of FORK Xchange Suite, an application that gives broadcasters instant web access to content on their FORK Production servers from any Windows, Mac, or tablet device. FORK Xchange Suite 2.0 contains new capabilities for creating subclips and markers, as well as an upload manager, extended metadata functionality, multitrack audio control, and more new features that make it easier for media enterprises to manage content efficiently among multiple FORK Production sites. SL6824
