FORK Xchange Suite 2.5
FORK™ Xchange™ Suite v2.5, the latest version of its companion application that gives broadcasters instant access to content on their FORK Production™ Servers from any HTML5 supported Web browser or Apple® iPad® device.
Xchange for iPad® v1.0, a professional native iOS application that allows producers and editors to browse, make rough cuts, add metadata, and create annotations on content while disconnected from the production environments.
DIG-IT™ 1.0 is a server-based software application that helps broadcasters, government, entertainment, and corporate IT departments monitor their broadcast IT operations. The application can monitor individual servers in addition to the FORK production environment, making it easier for IT administrators to manage broadcast-related IT activity. Facilities can monitor mission-critical servers and applications, quickly identify performance bottlenecks, prevent and recover from system failures, and reduce downtime and operational costs.
FORK Logger 1.0
FORK™ Logger 1.0 is a powerful metadata-tagging tool designed from the ground up for logging live or pre-recorded video. The tightly integrated and configurable user interface enables content loggers to tag video quickly with defined metadata, making content searchable, ready to be filtered, and organized for viewing in FORK’s Content Navigator™ MAM — or for working with in a FORK project or rundown. The heart of FORK Logger is a dynamic GUI containing form templates, button panels, video viewers, marker thumbnail lists, and a bin list of created events, all elements that can be designed based on content requirements.
FORK Logger increases the speed, accuracy, and flexibility of logging media, while maximizing the value of content owners’ video archives. The module’s flexibility enables workflows for live broadcasting, archiving, player scouting, and video coaching — all on a single unified platform.
FORK Logger supports multiple layouts per production server and is available for both Windows® and Mac® OS.
“As broadcasters and video producers move entirely into a file-based workflow, operations require powerful digital media solutions to ingest, manage, and distribute content. By bringing together media professionals from a range of industries, MTE is the ideal place for us to demonstrate the power and sophistication of our FORK automation and media asset management software platform for I/O, logging, tagging, editing, workflow management, archiving, playout, and more.”
