Primestream to introduce 4K MXF workflows at NAB

At NAB2015, Primestream will show the latest updates to both FORK Production Suite and Playout, with advancements in 4K MXF workflows. FORK version 5.0 also includes new two-way integrations with nonlinear editors like Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, and Apple Final Cut Pro X.

The integrations support edit-while-capture workflows with XDCAM, ProRes, and AVC-Intra and the benefits of the FORK media asset management and automation platform for I/O, logging, tagging, proxy editing, workflow management, and archiving.

Other new features include:

  • FORK Production to Playout scheduling and workflows
  • Improved graphics device control
  • Improved archive system support, with partial file restore

“Primestream’s FORK 5.0 continues our commitment to interoperability with enhanced support for craft editor workflows, third party integrations, additional codec support, new scripting commands, device control and refinements to our logger,” said Claudio Lisman, Primestream President and CEO. “Our ingest and playout port density has increased over the last year and on the FORK Playout side we will be showing 4K MXF which is the first payoff from a long term development effort on our media pipeline that will provide the feature and performance for the future of our customers.

“On the Xchange front, success continue with new deployments and version 4.0, which brings important new features and functionality for commenting, rating and tracking activity, as well as remote craft edit workflows with the major NLEs.”
