In a development likely to intrigue cable nets as they manage video across platforms and geographies, Adobe Systems on Wed announced the commercial availability of Abobe Anywhere for Video.
The tech aims to streamline video production by eliminating massive file transfers, duplicate media and proxy files, letting producers manage content more efficiently using standard networks and hardware. Right now, the system works with Adobe’s main video editing software, with plans to add its widely used After Effects suite to the mix later this year.
“Video production has always been challenging because it’s difficult for multiple editors to work on the same project and pass huge files back and forth across the Internet,” said Abobe vp, enterprise solutions Jim Guerard. “With Adobe Anywhere, these hassles are gone.”
Adobe Anywhere software is installed on a cluster of servers and powered by the Adobe Anywhere Collaboration Hub, which allows multiple team members to access and work on the same project files simultaneously, and the Adobe Mercury Streaming Engine, which provides real-time, dynamic viewing streams with GPU-accelerated effects.
