Primestream: The latest FORK developments

FORK Production Suite v4.6 is the latest version of Primestream’s software platform for managing the automation of broadcast workflows.

Enhancements mean FORK supports H.264, H.265, and mXF formats as well as 64-bit and 4K workflows.

FORK v4.6 also includes two-way integrations with editors such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, and Apple Final Cut Pro X. The integrations support edit-while-capture workflows with XDCAM, ProRes, and AVC-Intra.

Making its European premier at IBC is FORK Xchange Suite v3.0, which is claimed to give broadcasters “instant” web access to content on their FORK Production servers from any Windows, Mac, or tablet device. Xchange v3.0 features a redesigned iPad interface optimised for Apple iOS 7. Also new, users can manage non-video files such as audio, image, document, and project files. Direct integration with multiple transcode engines for proxy rending is also available in v3.0.

“In response to customer feedback, we have been hard at work further future-proofing the foundations of the FORK ecosystem. With a completely rebuilt foundation, FORK is ready for the UHD future and our customers have a roadmap to take their operations to the next level,” said Primestream president and CEO, Claudio Lisman.

Also making its European premier is Primestream’s Archive Bridge v1.0, a new module for the FORK Production Suite that provides integration between archival systems and the FORK platform; and the latest FORK Logger, the metadata tagging module in the FORK Production Suite that now integrates with data feeds from STATS.
