Cloud operations have been steadily gaining a foothold in broadcasting over the last five years but there are still limits to how much it can do and reservations about what it should be used for in TV and post-production. In particular there has been doubt over the viability of full editing using the technology but ahead of NAB 2015 Adobe has announced that its Anywhere collaborative workflow system can run in conjunction with platform provider Aframe’s remote server network to do exactly that.
Aframe will launch the next generation of its cloud video collaboration platform at NAB. Calling it the Spring Release, the updated version will include expanded search and discovery features, enhanced multimedia format handling for non-video assets such as audio files, graphic files and documents, and a new approvals workflow for more streamlined feedback between users. The release is designed to make the management of professional video and production assets more efficient, accessible and cost effective, the company said.
Dalet is demonstrating the latest advancements in its Dalet Brio server technology at NAB. The new releases - Dalet Brio v3.1 – features future-proofing capabilities that will keep facilities ahead of the curve by supporting emerging formats and broadcast infrastructures.
Data storage infrastructure supplier Scale Logic has partnered with the StudioXperience and Waskul.TV in a demonstration of 4K workflow on the showfloor at NAB.
Bright Technologies is launching Astella Nx Pro, in time for NAB. This is a compact NAS appliance that is said to enable high-resolution, real-time workflows “to operate at performance levels that have until now only been achievable from Fibre Channel SANs”.
