IBC2017 will be the European debut of the new Fork and Xchange Suite

At IBC2017, Primestream will show off the generation of its Dynamic Media Management platform. The new platform is built to manage complex sports, enterprise and broadcast workflows. New versions of Fork and Xchange Suite will make their European debut.

The Fork and Xchange Suite upgrades include an improved user experience, 4K/UHD workflow, VR/360 asset management, web based metadata taggin, an updated Adobe Premiere Pro extension panel with project-centric workflows, and archival workflows for storing and restoring media from object-based storage providers such as Amazon, SwiftStack, IBM and Cloudian. 

New project-centric workflows enable Primestream users and teams to create, share and collaborate on projects inside Xchange, or via the Xchange extension panel within Adobe Premiere Pro CC. Users will now be able to organise raw footage or switch between proxy and high-res source material for remote/offsite editing.

Other upgrades to Xchange include support for new equirectangular VR/360 asset management, enabling media playback and review, with “spatial/360” visual marker annotations to highlight areas of interest in a 360° space. Xchange also includes a new module for creating playlists of media assets and exporting for delivery to VOD solutions.

Primestream will also demonstrate Xchange Workspaces, its new module for easily building and customising GUI based on different ways people work. Users can also enrich content with Workspaces’ built-in metadata tagging engine that integrates with metadata sources such as the Associated Press (AP) metadata platform.

“Our next generation of the Dynamic Media Management platform has been well received by the industry and we’re looking for to showcasing it at IBC2017," said Claudio Lisman, president and CEO of Primestream. "We are always looking to give our users an easy path to 4K/UHD and VR/360 workflow while addressing the need for teams to collaborate on projects from anywhere,”  “We work hard to make sure our solutions are ‘simply powerful’, and enable users to capture, produce, manage and deliver assets more easily than ever before.”
