Two-Way Communication Enables Edit-While-Capture and Collaborative Production Workflows
MIAMI — March 18, 2014 — Primestream(R) today released a new FORK(TM) integration with Apple’s Final Cut Pro(R) X, enabling unified two-way communications between the two applications. Final Cut Pro X users can now reap the benefits of the FORK Production Suite for managing and automating media workflows, including edit-while-capture with automatic refresh, logging, marker insertion, proxy editing, workflow management, and archiving.
“The FORK platform provides industry professionals with essential tools that allow Final Cut Pro X craft editors to easily browse their media database and trigger customizable FORK automated workflows,” said Warren Arenstein, Primestream senior vice president of business development. “FORK edit-while-capture integration with Final Cut Pro X gives live multi-cam productions the ability to meet quick-turnaround deadlines while simultaneously extending access to many departments.”
