IP.Link is a new Apple Mac OS-based application improving the integration of EVS equipment with Final Cut Pro.
The proposed workflow is used in situations where IPDirector and Final Cut Pro share the same storage managed by IPDirector as a nearline.
Content stored on nearline storage can be searched for and previewed directly from IP.Link and imported into Final Cut Pro without being moved or copied.
Since the implementation of the new EVS website, useful operator information is displayed on the Training page.
All operator newsletters can be found in the ProNews section. They are classified chronologically to simplify the search of former releases.
A new section featuring product tutorials has been added. Several tutorials are offered at this stage and more will be available with future product releases. The goal of tutorials is to give an overview of a specific product or subject and explain its basic operations. The tutorial can be viewed before attending classroom training, after a training to refresh the knowledge of basic operations or even as an overall introduction to a product or subject.
