Today, we announced that Adobe Anywhere for videos, first previewed in April at the National Association of Broadcasters tradeshow (NAB), is now available for the immediate relief of video production headaches. Gone are the challenges associated with passing huge files back and forth across the internet between multiple editors working on the same project. Now, team members can work together with centralized media and assets, making it possible for remote editors, motion graphic artists and producers to work jointly on a project from virtually anywhere……in other words, teams can be built on talent, not necessarily location.
Michael Turner, senior vice president of Media Technology and Development at Turner Broadcasting, put things in context when he talked to us about how CNN moves a lot of material in support of video journalism. Just a couple of years ago, providing worldwide access to content as interoperable files was a huge milestone for them. Now they aim to make that access transparent, and Adobe Anywhere will play a key role in achieving that transparency because journalists will be able to engage with content and collaborate on stories seamlessly, regardless of their physical location.
Today’s release of Adobe Anywhere supports the latest versions of Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Adobe Prelude CC that are available as part of Adobe Creative Cloud and were updated today to include 25 new features focused on increased speed and ease of editing.. We expect support for Adobe After Effects CC to be available later in 2013.
