Adobe Introduces New Collaborative Video Platform
At IBC, Adobe is unveiling Adobe Anywhere for video— a powerful collaborative workflow platform that empowers users of Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects® and Adobe Prelude™ to work together using centralized media and assets across any network. Adobe Anywhere brings virtual teams of talent together, enabling them to efficiently shoot, log, edit, share and finish video productions using standard open systems, networks and processes. Adobe Anywhere is unique in that it can operate on existing hardware and network infrastructures, reducing the need for additional capital expenditure and resources. It also works with existing media asset management and other workflow systems.
“As a global news organization with journalists all over the world publishing to multiple platforms, we need a streamlined post production solution,” said Michael Koetter, vice president of News Technology Planning and Development, CNN. “We have a strong relationship with Adobe that includes utilizing Adobe Premiere Pro for editing hundreds of pieces daily. We are also participating in a pilot of Adobe Anywhere and hope it will be a tool that simplifies the way CNN journalists work in the future.”
