ELEMENTS Showcased New Features of the Media Library at London Show

ELEMENTS showcased new and improved features in its Media Library at the recent Media Production Show in London.

ELEMENTS’ Media Library is a sophisticated media asset management, sharing and editing tool, that provides practical features through a user-friendly HTML5-based web interface. By allowing users to (pre-)view, share and even add comments to media assets across virtually all applications, the Media Library not only functions as a standard MAM tool, but also as a powerful communication portal, significantly simplifying and streamlining everyday tasks and approval processes. One of the new and enhanced features introduced at MPS is an even closer operation with Adobe Premiere Pro.

Adobe Projects and Sequences can easily be created in the ELEMENTS Media Library interface from a Production Manager's desk, freeing up valuable Edit Suite resources. With ELEMENTS Adobe Premiere Pro Plug-In, editors can seamlessly browse, search and import assets and work with the previously created projects and sequences. Changes in the Adobe sequence are committed back to the ELEMENTS Media Library interface, providing further collaboration.

“ELEMENTS stands for simplicity of collaboration in shared media workflows. That’s why our media storage appliances, including our awarded all-in-one solution ELEMENTS ONE and ELEMENTS GATEWAY, make it easy to connect virtually all workstations to a shared file system on the central storage, including Avid Media Composer with full Avid Project Sharing and Avid Bin-locking support. The Media Library takes this even further, not only with a seamless integration with Premiere Pro but also by providing unique features to simplify teamwork, such as our visual workflow automation tool.”
André Kamps, CEO, ELEMENTS.

As part of ELEMENTS Media Library, the workflow manager can be enabled on every ELEMENTS media server and storage appliance to launch even the most complex workflow automation tasks with simple drag and drop functionality. Other features embedded in all ELEMENTS appliances embrace virtually all tools required on a daily basis, such as a comprehensive user and rights management, an intelligent file manager and a task manager for customized workflow automation.
