The Content Navigator(MAM) is at the core of FORK’s extensive Media Asset Management (MAM) capabilities. With the use of “smart folders,” any metadata field is dynamically transformed into a property that can filter, sort, and manage content.

Package Contains:

  • FORK's User Management features provide administrative control over which users can see media, edit metadata, and utilize system resources such as decks, ingest ports, and monitoring outputs.
  • Resources can be pooled dynamically, making them available for tasks when and where they are needed most. Decisions for routine tasks such as path selection of incoming or outgoing video signals or assignment of VTRs physically closest to a user can all be managed effortlessly and are, for the most part, transparent to the end-user.
  • The MediaPlayer Pro is our industry leading video server application for creating and distributing content. Our custom wrapper generation allows us to embed frame accurate proxy streams in ingested files, all while allowing editing and playback of footage that is still recording.
  • Creating proxy, a frame accurate low bandwidth version of the media at the point of ingest, means that while recording content multiple system users can already begin logging, reviewing, sub-clipping, and trimming in the Content Navigator and even cut sequences in the FORK Proxy Editor.


The metadata driven workflow provides a powerful automated management system that puts content at the user's fingertips wherever it is needed in the production process. "Smart Bins" and scripts are configured with TV network/station staff to exploit the power of the information hidden in the metadata to automatically accomplish many typical workflow functions, leaving users able to concentrate on ways to most creatively tell their stories and deliver their content quickly.

The FORK MAM is cross-platform allowing Mac and Windows users to browse proxy and quickly turnaround sound bites, VOs, and highlights right at their desktops with the FORK Proxy Editor. The Editor can be used to insert voice-overs, adjust audio levels, and includes the ability for live multiple user timelines - one editor can add a narration track to a piece while a second editor finalizes the video cut of a fast-breaking news story.
With FORK’s industry leading integration with Adobe Premiere Pro and Apple Final Cut Pro, projects and sequences initiated in FORK are instantly available for finishing in a craft edit suite.
