ProMAX Platform Version 5 Adds Functionality and Media Management Capabilities within Adobe Premiere Pro CC Editing Environment Las Vegas, Nevada, NAB Show Conference, Booth SL3825 (April 18, 2016) ProMAX Systems, world leader in integrated workflow technology for media organizations, today announced Platform Version 5 with integration for Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC, a key component of Adobe Creative Cloud®. This customer-focused enhancement leverages the capabilities of Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Platform, providing a seamless and more efficient workflow for the end-user. With the release of Platform V5 with integration for Adobe Premiere Pro CC, ProMAX has taken the first major step of workflow server integration within a NLE environment. This development further boosts workflow efficiency for media professionals, allowing them to work within one interface without the need for jumping from one UI to the other, which takes extra time and stifles the creative process. “Many of today’s media professionals spend much of their time working with the Adobe Creative Cloud applications,” stated Jess Hartmann, CEO ProMAX Systems. “The last thing they want to do is open up other programs to manage media on their SAN, hunt down files to complete a project, or perform a transcode. So we designed ProMAX’s Adobe product integration around Adobe’s open API’s allowing the full functionality of Platform’s Workflow Server capabilities to be accessed from within Adobe Premiere Pro CC.” The Platform Server family encompasses a multi-node architecture, native integration for asset management, ingest, transcoding, collaborative editing, rendering, delivery and archive capabilities. All of these features within Platform, which are based on the XMP metadata schema, are now available to editors inside their NLE through the Platform V5 integration. “Today’s creatives need fast workflows that empower them to create, source, manage and publish content faster than ever,” said Sue Skidmore, head of partner relations, professional video at Adobe. “The Adobe video tools are designed to unlock the creative process across apps, projects and teams. The ProMAX Platform integration with Adobe Premiere Pro CC helps creatives make amazing and engaging content without skipping a beat.”
