AMSTERDAM -- Sept. 13, 2013 -- Primestream(R) today announced that its acclaimed FORK(TM) Production Suite for managing and automating broadcast workflows can now record XDCAM(R) MXF files that will update in Avid(R) Media Composer(R) while recording. This breakthrough allows sports and news operations to use the popular long-GOP codec with the craft editor, and at the same time gain the benefits of the FORK Production automation and media asset management platform for I/O, logging, tagging, proxy editing, workflow management, and archiving.
"We have already achieved Edit-While-Capture for the iFrame codec, and now we are happy to offer the same capability with XDCAM for long-GOP, because it has been of high interest to our customers using Avid craft editors," said Claudio Lisman, Primestream president and CEO. "Customers are looking for flexibility in their systems, and this move demonstrates our commitment to providing cutting-edge options with industry-standard codecs and editors."
The Edit-While-Capture functionality for Media Composer is an optional component for the FORK Media Player, the I/O application in the FORK Production system. It allows users to access the ingesting video as a live stream in real-time proxy and high-resolution through all the standard FORK Production Client tools, as well as other craft editors, while an Avid Media Composer editor continues to work with the growing file. Once the Avid editor has sent the clip from FORK to Media Composer, the clip duration will continue to grow in the project with no need for additional action.
Primestream will conduct ongoing demonstrations of this new functionality during IBC2013 on stand 7.D21. Visit www.primestream.com for more information.
