Primestream improves workflow management5 September 2013
Primestream will be debuting version 4.5 of its FORK Production Suite for managing the automation of broadcast workflows in Amsterdam.
This version includes FORK Workflow Manager 1.0 for controlling production workflows, as well as integration with Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro, and Avid Media Composer. It supports third-party broadcast and workflow tools with such industry leaders as Harmonic, Quantum and Cisco.
Also at IBC, Primestream will show version 2.5 of its FORK Xchange Suite, the application that gives broadcasters cloud access to content on their FORK Production servers from any Windows, Mac, or tablet device. An add-on to Primestream’s FORK software, FORK Xchange Suite 2.5 introduces the Xchange Shot List Editor add-on module, which gives editors a way to edit content living inside the FORK environment via a proxy with Xchange for Web and iOS. Also a dedicated API for streaming URLs, time-limited temporary URLs, hash-encrypted URLs, and session-based crosschecking have been added to Xchange 2.5.
Making its European debut is Xchange for iPad 1.0, a native iOS application that allows producers and editors to browse, edit metadata, and create annotations on content while disconnected from the production environment.
Also making its European debut at IBC is Primestream DigIT 1.0, a server-based software application that helps broadcast, government, entertainment, and corporate IT departments monitor broadcast IT operations. The application can monitor individual servers in addition to the FORK production environment.
Primestream will also show FORK Logger 1.0, a module for describing content inside FORK Production Suite’s software platform for media asset management and workflow automation.
