Primestream®, an industry-leading maker of Asset Management and Automation software solutions, announces Mobile2Air® 3.0, a major upgrade to the iOS app that seamlessly integrates remote field reporting with Primestream’s FORK™ Production Suite, and now seamlessly with Xchange™ Suite. Mobile2Air 3.0 enables recording, uploading and reviewing of videos fast and securely from an iPhone® or iPad®.
Mobile2Air’s interface is now optimized for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus running iOS 8. The update is based on a new unified back-end, which is highly scalable from small to large-scale deployments, and allows uploading and reviewing from anywhere across Mobile2Air and Xchange. The new Mobile2Air Render Engine allows Proxy creation for viewing media under various network conditions, and integrates tightly with third-party transcoding software. Mobile2Air 3.0 integrates with Aspera’s FASP™ upload acceleration technology, the proven standard for high-speed data transport.
"Mobile2Air is the ultimate file-based video contribution tool that gives professionals a secure, convenient and cost effective way of sending content to a newsroom, post production or VOD environment," said Robert Lisman, Director of Marketing at Primestream. “It also serves as an effective way to engage fans and viewers to share their perspectives in SD to HD video from anywhere in the world, via wireless telephone networks or WiFi access points. Mobile2Air adds a level of immediacy required by many media operations and empowers journalists to quickly get their story from remote locations to the newsroom, but without costly satellite uplinks.”
Mobile2Air users shoot video directly with the iPhone or iPad’s built-in camera or can choose existing clips from the device’s built-in media library. Users can select compression rates for video depending on network conditions, from low bit rate SD formats up to full 1080p HD. Next, they can add metadata then transfer the video directly to previously designated servers. The application provides upload status details as well a review and approval workflow.
