Primestream has launched the latest version of its FORK Production Suite software platform for media asset management and production automation. FORK Production Suite v4.6 features Workflow Manager v1.0, a new module for designing internal video production processes across an organisation’s departments. Workflow Manager is suitable for all IT infrastructure, including broadcast, post production and corporate enterprise.
The software offers new modules that aim to simplify the process of live and file-based ingest, editing, logging, distributing, and archiving content. These enhancements ensure that users can perform edit-while-capture on Adobe Premiere Pro (CS6 and Creative Cloud), Avid Media Composer, and Apple Final Cut Pro X editing platforms.
FORK v4.6 features expanded APIs that enable new archiving workflows with SGL, Quantum, and Atempo, enabling FORK users to browse, search, and filter archived content inside their off-line storage solutions, from within the FORK Content Navigator MAM.
“Deep integration with a MAM is something that existing craft editors have long needed, because the days of working in an edit room in isolation are gone, and collaborative editing is now essential to a media company’s bottom line,” said Claudio Lisman, Primestream president and CEO. “With FORK v4.6, we’ve optimised the software so that the FORK MAM works more intimately with the most popular NLEs and ensures that users can start working without waiting for content to finish ingesting. This capability means that media operations with tight deadlines can reduce the time it takes to turn content around.”
Primestream will demonstrate FORK v4.6 at the NAB Show next month.
