Primestream Adds 4K, 360 and Archival Workflows

Primestream is showing the next version of its MAM platforms FORK and Xchange Suite which have 4K workflows, VR/360-Asset Management, web-based metadata tagging and archival workflows from Amazon and SwiftStack Object-based storage.

“We’re excited to give our users an easy path to 4K/UHD and VR/360 workflows while addressing the need for teams to collaborate on projects from anywhere,” said Claudio Lisman, President and CEO of Primestream. “The advances being announced today are tangible steps in Primestream’s commitment to be ‘simply powerful’. Together these advances enable Primestream users to capture, produce, manage and deliver assets more easily than ever before.”

New project-centric workflows enable users and teams to collaborate on projects inside Xchange, or via the Xchange extension panel within Adobe Premiere Pro CC. Users can now organize raw footage or switch between proxy and high-res source material for effective remote/offsite editing. Other advances to Xchange include support for new Equirectangular VR/360-Asset Management, enabling media playback and review, with ‘spatial/360’ visual marker annotations to highlight areas of interest in a 360° space. Xchange also brings a new module for creating playlists of media assets and exporting for delivery to VOD solutions.

Primestream will demonstrate Xchange Workspaces, a new module for building and customizing the Graphical User Interface based on the different ways people work. A built-in metadata tagging engine integrates with metadata sources such as the Associated Press (AP)’s metadata platform.

Third-party vendors such as Amazon S3 and SwiftStack for object-based storage, file-based Quality Control (QC) with Baton by Interra, high-speed file transfers with Aspera and FileCatalyst, transcoding with Elemental and Telestream, and enhancements to NLE integration with Adobe, Avid and Apple.
