FORK will offer Avid users an increased ability for collaboration without slowing the workflow. In addition to Avid, FORK v4.6 includes integrations with other non-linear editing (NLE) platforms, including Adobe Premiere Pro (CS6 and Creative Cloud) and Apple Final Cut Pro X.
FORK v4.6 offers several new modules and third-party integrations. This includes Workflow Manager, a module that allows users to design, control and automate production processes that span multiple departments and groups within their organizations.
These capabilities improve communication and response time from engineering and support staff, provide a global view of the tasks and processes being worked on and assign tasks to specific groups or users while logging every step of the process with information for analytics.
FORK v4.6 also supports edit-while-capture workflows with XDCAM, ProRes and AVC-Intra while leveraging the benefits of the FORK media asset management and automation platform for I/O, logging, tagging, proxy editing, workflow management and archiving.
FORK also features new archiving workflows with leading hardware and software manufacturers, enabling FORK users to browse, search and filter through archived content inside their off-line storage solutions — all from within the FORK Content Navigator. Other benefits include partial file restore and availability for Macintosh and Windows OS, as well as hybrid environments.
“With an unsurpassed level of scalability and flexibility, the FORK suite is an essential toolbox for anyone working with a non-linear editing system,” said Claudio Lisman, Primestream president and CEO. “The FORK Suite is designed to minimize distraction and keep the artistic process flowing while increasing the bottom line.”
