At NAB, Primestream will demonstrate the new FORK Production Suite v4.6, an upgrade to its software platform for media asset management (MAM) and production automation. It will be available in the second half of the year.
The Miami-based company said simplifying task management enables content creators to focus on decision-making, communicating and creating, while connecting administrators, engineers and support staff to the workflow. Workflow Manager is suited for all IT infrastructures, including broadcast, postproduction and corporate enterprise.
The new suite provides deeper third-party integrations and new modules that simplify the process of live and file-based ingest, editing, logging, distributing and archiving content for broadcasters and postproduction houses.
These enhancements ensure that users can perform edit-while-capture on the three major non-linear editing (NLE) platforms including Adobe Premiere Pro (CS6 and Creative Cloud), Avid Media Composer and Apple Final Cut Pro X.
“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, CEO of Primestream.
FORK v4.6’s integrations support edit-while-capture workflows for sports, news, entertainment and corporate video operations. It pairs the NLEs with the benefits of the FORK MAM and automation platform for I/O, logging, tagging, proxy editing, workflow management and archiving.
FORK v4.6 also 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.
FORK is available for Mac and Windows operating systems as well as hybrid environments.
