​Primestream to Show 360-Video Workflows

Primestream is set to demonstrate its Fork asset management software in tandem with 360-video workflows at the 2016 NAB show. It will also deliver enhancements to 4K, MXF workflows, and reveal new integration with NLEs.

“We continue to listen to our customers to better understand the challenges they face in delivering more content to more places,” said Claudio Lisman, president, Primestream. “Our commitment is to bridge what they have, with what they need, and by doing so, to remove the technical obstacles that get in the way of letting them achieve their goals.”

New NLE integrations are with Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, and Final Cut Pro X.

Primestream is set to showcase FORK version 5.5 which offers broader support for third party traffic systems with solutions for metadata exchange between traffic, MAM and automation. Users can increase efficiency by making use of metadata generated by traffic systems in the FORK acquisition, production, archive and playout modules. Primestream’s metadata exchange comes standard with the latest version of FORK, enabling users to add optional metadata driven newsroom and real-time sports-data feed integration.

Primestream is also introducing project centric workflows in Xchange v5.0 – enabling users to collaborate on projects inside Xchange, or using a plug-in for PremierePro. This lets users organise raw footage, or final edited programs with various languages within a single workspace, simplifying searching and automation. Workflow actions can be triggered for entire projects, for example sending them to archive or automating transcode deliverables when production is complete. Users can also consolidate a project’s entire asset library with a new project export feature.

In addition, Xchange v5.0 includes support for Equirectangular Virtual Reality/360 media playback and review.

Also new in this release is direct API integration with Telestream’s Vantange for automated transcode workflows, including support for spanned camera assets – for management of assets from multiple memory cards.
