Avid has launched a mobile app version of its MediaCentral platform designed to help with production and distribution needs on mobile devices.
An app have been developed for MediaCentral | Collaborate, which is designed to keep team members connected by enabling supervisors to give and monitor assignments and the aligning resources. A mobile app for Mediacentral | Reporter, meanwhile, allows journalists to capture video, edit multitrack sequences, add graphics and send finished stories to the newsroom as long as there is an internet connection.
As well as the new apps, Avid said that MediaCentral now provides direct integration with third-party newsroom computer systems (NRCS), including the ENPS and Octopus newsroom computer systems. These integrations give MediaCentral users an HTML5 MOS plugin for visual access to the platform.
Integration has also been added with Adobe Premiere Pro. Avid said users of MediaCentral | Connector for Adobe Premiere Pro can share content for broadcast and digital news creation.
Avid is now allowing users to license MediaCentral through a subscription model.
