Apace Systems Launches "ViEW," Video Editing, WorldWide, Enabling Global Collaborative Video Editing Workflow via Internet

IBC 2008
Booth 7.G49

ORANGE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apace Systems Corporation®, a leading media workflow and storage solution provider for video, graphics and audio content creation, distribution and archive, announces immediate availability of its ViEW system platform, an end-to-end workflow for remote collaborative video editing at a global scale.

For the first time, media editing workflow can be completely virtualized beyond physical locations. From anywhere in the world, media editors can edit and access each other's media content, expediting the process of ingesting, editing, and collaborative communication of any media. With a simple browser and over Internet or VPN, a rough cut of raw video can be easily edited on-line and presented to target audiences instantly.

The benefits in efficiency and cost savings are tremendous as editing, peer review, and approval process of media cuts are streamlined. Editors can simply communicate, edit and cut at the timecode level on raw and proxy footage using a backend database managing collaborative video editing process between different remote editing locations globally. A director, from the field, can directly access and offer editing instructions at video clips and timecode level to the head office, drastically, cutting down editing time to final cut.

The ViEW technology’s self contained system platform is all inclusive of needed hardware and software to interoperate with or without any popular video editing software. A user only needs a browser with Internet access to edit and is independent from local OS. ViEW also provides mechanisms to support EDL, closed-caption and transcode for flexibility and interoperability between different formats and editing environments.

Combined with Apace's postMAM media asset management, ViEW offers a complete virtualized video editing workflow to upload, ingest, and edit raw footage via Internet so editors can collaborate anywhere around the world. The system supports instant customer feedback and peer review.

Further with Apace's Octopa, Apace provides an ecosystem for facility-wide storage and project management. The storage management includes SAN islands like Unity/ISIS, XSAN, or other SAN, NAS, DAS and client local storage. Project management features enable project scheduling, project progress monitoring, communications of concept/idea exchange at project, video clip and sequence level. Contrary to the conventional approach, all the functions are web-based for a completely virtualized OS-independent media worldwide workflow.

Apace Systems will showcase ViEW at IBC 2008 Europe, September 12-16th, 2008, at Apace booth #7.G49.
