FORK Production Suite v4.6
At Government Video Expo 2014, Primestream® will show FORK™ Production Suite v4.6, the latest version of its software platform for managing the automation of the most complex broadcast workflows. With new modules, functionality, and integrations with the leading broadcast hardware and software vendors, FORK v4.6 is the most extendable, configurable, and powerful version of FORK ever released and includes major revisions to the underlying structures of FORK 4.5 that debuted at the 2014 NAB Show. These upgrades increase overall system responsiveness and provide for the handling of a vastly increased quantity of media assets.
FORK Xchange Suite v3.0
At Government Video Expo 2014, Primestream® will also demonstrate FORK™ Xchange™ Suite v3.0, a major upgrade to the application that gives broadcasters instant Web access to content on their FORK Production servers from any Windows®, Mac®, or tablet device. Xchange v3.0 features a completely redesigned iPad® interface optimized for Apple® iOS 7. Also new in Xchange, users can now manage non-video files such as audio, image, document, and project files. Direct integration with multiple transcode engines for proxy rendering is also available in Xchange v3.0.
FORK Logger With STATS
FORK™ Logger, the metadata tagging module in the acclaimed FORK Production Suite, now integrates with in-depth data feeds from STATS, the global leader in sports information, technology, and content. With this service, FORK Logger users can start their sessions with populated placeholders that contain rich event data pulled from the STATS feed, such as team name, location information, rosters, conference name, and win/loss records. Working from these populated placeholders enables users to avoid manually entering data, which increases the accuracy of the descriptive information.
FORK Archive Bridge v1.0
Archive Bridge™ v1.0 is a new module for the FORK™ Production Suite that provides tight integration between industry-leading archival solutions and the FORK media asset management and production automation platform. Archive Bridge enables disaster recovery workflows and interconnects multiple production environments with a central archive point — adding essential visibility into the archival workflow and allowing facilities to make the most of their archiving dollars.
