EVS announces new open workflow integration with Adobe at IBC2012
EVS has announced an open workflow collaboration with Adobe. The initiative includes Adobe’s flagship video editing tool, Adobe Premiere Pro Creative Suite 6 software, integrated with EVS’ industry-leading XT/XS high-speed production servers. EVS will showcase the integrated workflow for the first time on its stand (booth Hall8 B90) at IBC2012.
The integration between EVS’ production servers and Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 will enable users to exchange media recorded on EVS servers and send Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 edits back for instant playout. Using the industry-standard OP1a MXF or QuickTime Movies file exchange format, Adobe Premiere Pro users will be able to edit content while it’s being transferred as a background task via EVS’ XT/XS media production servers.
The streamlined workflow removes traditional production bottlenecks and gives Adobe Premiere Pro editors more time to focus on creative editorial tasks, rather than spending valuable time waiting for file transfers. Since EVS servers already natively support codecs used by Adobe Premiere Pro, it now means that files can be directly transferred without encoding and decoding, which saves time and also preserves image quality.
