Masstech Launches Adobe Premiere Pro Panel For Kumulate

Storage and asset management solution now integrated with Adobe’s flagship editing suite for increased workflow efficiency.

Premiere Pro users can now access the functionality of Masstech’s storage, workflow and lifecycle management solution, Kumulate, from directly within Premiere Pro.

The Adobe panel can be easily added to any Kumulate system. Storage movement and workflow tools are then presented as a plug-in within the edit suite, allowing users to access their entire inventory across any type of online or deeper storage tier, including cloud, local disk, optical disk, and LTO.

All assets on all storage tiers are searchable to Premiere Pro users from within the new panel, using search criteria including structured, unstructured, and time-based metadata. These tools allow users to quickly access their content libraries from within Adobe Premiere Pro, speeding up workflows.

Premiere Pro and other assets can be restored directly to editing storage, including individual sequences, complete projects, or selected files from a project. Kumulate’s simple UI allows users to browse proxies, and features familiar editing tools such as Adobe markers to define and initiate partial restores when only a portion of a file or project is required. And for customers operating multiple Kumulate systems, Kumulate's Federated Search enables search across the content in disparate systems, and subsequent copy of remote assets to the local storage.

“Kumulate already works with a huge range of MAMs, PAMs, NRCS systems and NLEs, but we are delighted to be able to offer additional workflow benefits to Adobe Premiere Pro users,” comments George Kilpatrick, CEO, Masstech. “Being able to access their entire video library in our next generation storage without leaving their editing application will allow Adobe users to spend more time on the core creative component of their job and less time searching for files and assets.”
