EVS announces new open workflow integration with Adobe at IBC2012
Liège, 06 September 2012 – EVS, the leading broadcast production systems provider has announced an open workflow collaboration with Adobe®, one of the world’s largest and most diverse software companies. 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.
“Broadcasters need an editing solution that provides a quick turnaround, from acquisiton through delivery,” said Simon Williams, director strategic relations at Adobe. “The combination of Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 integrated with EVS production servers enables customers to complete projects faster than ever with a solution that is tested and supported by both companies.”
“We’re delighted about the announcement with Adobe and the integration of our broadcast production servers with Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. The initiative responds directly to an increasing demand by broadcasters and programme makers for faster turnaround TV productions - and will help increase the productivity and efficiency of our users in satisfying this demand,” explained Serge Comes, Media Product Manager at EVS. “This collaboration will not only help widen our potential customer base, but will also give the market greater choice. With this announcement, our XT/XS servers are now seamlessly integrated with the top three editing packages in the industry.”
