Primestream enhances FORK production suite
FORK 3.0, the next generation of Primestream’s FORK Production Suite for managing and automating broadcast workflows, will make its European debut. FORK 3.0 new features include technological improvements and third-party integrations that make it more responsive, powerful, extendable, and capable of handling multiple tasks.
Underlying technology enhancements, such as drones, dynamic forms, and scripts increase the software’s stability, reliability, and functionality. Additionally, the new version includes FORK Xchange Suite, a new companion application that serves as the Web portal into the FORK environment; the new Shot List Editor, a way to edit proxy content inside of FORK; and the latest versions of Mobile2Air and FORK Social add-on applications.
Primestream also continues its commitment to open-platform, hardware-agnostic broadcast solutions by integrating Adobe Premiere Pro, Sony XDCAM Station, and Harmonic ChannelPort workflows into FORK 3.0.
FORK Xchange Suite
FORK Xchange Suite is a new companion application to Primestream’s FORK software platform for managing and automating broadcast workflows. FORK Xchange Suite is the Web portal into the FORK environment, fully integrating with FORK Production Server and giving broadcasters and media enterprises instant access to content when and where it’s needed from any Internet-enabled Windows, Mac, or iOS device.
FORK Xchange Suite allows producers and editors to browse and view clips, edit and add metadata and markers, sort content, trigger FORK action scripts, and transfer media from and to multiple remote production servers. FORK Xchange Suite provides frame-accurate markers, real-time metadata synchronization, and full support, whether users are working from a desktop or an iPad.
Enhanced Adobe Premiere Pro Integration
Primestream will demonstrate the enhanced level of integration of FORK with both Adobe Premiere Pro and the new Adobe Creative Suite 6 Production Premium on Windows and Mac OS X. Using a newly developed panel, Premiere Pro users are able to search and browse the FORK media asset database with speed; select clips, bins, or timelines created in the FORK Editor; and simply drag those items into a Premiere Pro project. When an edited sequence is complete, users can send the project — ready for air — to FORK or into a newsroom system placeholder.
