Adobe has today announced the availability of Adobe Anywhere, a video server for Premiere Pro and Prelude.
First unveiled in April at the National Association of Broadcasters tradeshow, Adobe Anywhere is designed to eliminate headaches such as massive file transfers, duplicate media and proxy files, by allowing video post-production pros to work in Premiere Pro CC and Prelude CC using media stored on a central server.
"Video production has always been challenging because it's difficult for multiple editors to work on the same project and pass huge files back and forth across the internet," said Adobe Enterprise Solutions vice president Jim Guerard. "With Adobe Anywhere, these hassles are gone. Team members can worth together with centralised media and assets, making it possible for remote workers to work jointly on a project from virtually anywhere."
Editors and artists can log into the server from within their CC apps, and can access bins that exist on the server as well as on their host machines. With Adobe Anywhere, all processing takes place on the server, so a single, real-time stream of video is delivered over the network with a GPU-accelerated preview of effects, comps, titles and sequences.
As part of the launch, CNN has announced that it will be using Adobe Anywhere to allow its journalists to "seamlessly engage with content and collaborate on stories, regardless of location," something that was a "huge milestone" for the broadcaster before.
At present, Adobe Anywhere only supports the latest versions of Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Adobe Prelude CC, which are available to Adobe's Creative Cloud subscribers. Adobe says that support for After Effects CC is expected later this year.
