Cross-Platform Support and Intuitive New Interface Enable Users to Browse FORK Content Without Leaving Editor Application
MIAMI -- April 16, 2012 -- At the 2012 NAB Show, Primestream(R) will unveil an enhanced level of integration between its FORK(TM) software platform for managing and automating broadcast workflows and the upcoming release of Adobe(R) Premiere(R) Pro CS6, the acclaimed video editing software for Windows(R) and Mac(R) OS X(R). The integration will allow users to drag and drop clips directly from FORK into Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 and to browse FORK content without leaving the editing application, enabling editors and producers at all types of media organizations to get content to air more quickly and easily, whether they are using Windows or Mac.
Through an intuitive new graphical user interface (GUI), users will be able to search the FORK media asset database quickly from within Adobe Premiere Pro; select clips, bins, or timelines created in the FORK Editor; and simply drag those items into an Adobe Premiere Pro project. When an edited sequence is complete, users can send the project -- ready for air -- to FORK for playout to air or to fulfill a newsroom system placeholder.
"Adobe pioneered nonlinear video editing for broadcasters and creative professionals with its Premiere Pro software, and it's raising the bar again today with the release of Premiere Pro CS6," said Claudio Lisman, Primestream|B4M president and CEO. "Primestream shares Adobe's commitment to enable the world to produce and deliver more creative content, and we're thrilled to introduce this solution to the industry. FORK's new integration with Adobe Premiere Pro brings editing to a level of functionality that surpasses anything we've had with other video editing solutions. This means broadcasters will have a more advanced, efficient, and practical option to contribute content from any Windows or Mac computer."
FORK's enhanced integration with Adobe Premiere Pro creates a user-friendly, cross-platform solution, providing traditional broadcasters such as CBS Sports, evolving online new media outlets, or global newsgathering organizations such as CNN with a more collaborative and efficient workflow.
"Adobe is committed to providing broadcast professionals the tools they need to deliver high-quality productions efficiently," said Al Mooney, product manager for professional video editing at Adobe. "With Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 and FORK, users can produce more substantive content more quickly -- a clear advantage when it comes to getting good stories to air before the competition."
At the 2012 NAB Show, Adobe will reveal more about Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 video tools, expected to ship in the first half of 2012. Redesigned by and for editors, the software combines faster performance with a sleek, customizable user interface and powerful trimming tools that let editors work the way they want to.
