Arvato Systems Presents EditMate as a Service

Arvato is introducing a SaaS edition of its Production Asset Management software EditMate for Adobe Premiere Pro CC.

EditMate is a cloud-based production tool which brings projects and media into a single, searchable library eliminating complex folder structures. The software also manages project templates, automatically importing regularly used media assets (idents, graphics, bugs etc) into projects and setting up sequence parameters.

“The Cloud is a key element in the digital business model for anyone seeking agility, flexibility and efficiency,” explains Stefan Eckardt, Head of Product Management & Presales, Arvato. “So, we’re very excited to present a self-service, cloud-hosted, on-demand version of VPMS EditMate.

“The high bit-rates of professional video, and the large file sizes can make remote editing tedious and even impractical. EditMate offers an adaptive streaming engine that uses available bandwidth to deliver a high quality, full HD “proxy” – giving you the full Adobe Premiere Pro CC experience and toolset but without needing to wait for, or copy large media files. Once you’ve completed your edit, simply “check in” the sequences or subclips you want to submit, whether to send “to air”, or for review. All of the rendering and high-res creation happens back in the facility or wherever the original material is stored.”

For the on-demand offering, available through web portal, a trial version of EditMate will be available, alongside entry-level packages for small to workgroups as well as packages including the remote editing features. Additional seats can be added on a monthly basis while enterprise-wide and ‘private cloud’ deployments will also be available on request.

Visitors to the booth at NAB Show will be able to get a hands-on demo of the solution with an Arvato Systems expert and can register directly to get access to a free trial version of EditMate SaaS.
