Telestream Releases Flip4Mac for 360 Systems MAXX

Telestream has announced the release of a plug-in for its Flip4Mac software that provides direct file transfer between 360 Systems Image Server MAXX and Apple's Final Cut Pro.

The Flip4Mac Image Server Component imports MPEG-2 IMX 30/40/50 Mbps SD video, uncompressed audio and metadata from the MAXX server directly into the FCP bin project bin for editing. It also exports the MPEG project from FCP for seamless Ethernet file transfer back to MAXX servers. MAXX servers use MPEG-2 as the primary file format, includes 3 video channels and stores up to 170 hours of MPEG-2 video on internal drives.

"We are pleased to expand Flip4Mac support into Final Cut Pro for the new generation of 360 Systems' MAXX servers", said Barbara DeHart, vice president of Flip4Mac Products. "Final Cut users can now pull content directly from their Image Server into Final Cut Pro, edit it and move it back to the server for playout, enabling a faster file-based workflow for IMX content".
