Adobe Releases Adobe Anywhere Video Collaboration System

Updates Out for Premiere Pro CC and Prelude CC

Adobe today released its Adobe Anywhere collaborative workflow platform for video, which allows members of a team to share and work together on centralized media from distant locations.

Targeted at broadcasters and large enterprise customers, Adobe Anywhere software is installed on a server cluster hosted on-premises for maximum control and security. The Adobe Anywhere Collaboration Hub software manages project information and controls simultaneous user access to project files, and the Adobe Mercury Streaming Engine generates real-time viewing streams from Premiere Pro CC and Prelude CC sequences with GPU accelerated effects. Support for After Effects is coming later this year, Adobe said.

An intelligent codec scales the streams to match available bandwidth — Adobe says Wi-Fi networks will usually work for viewing content on small screens like tablets and laptops, and even low-quality 3G and cellular networks can enable certain management views, including status information, event feeds and metadata. 

"Video production has always been challenging because it's difficult for multiple editors to work on the same project and pass huge files back and forth across the Internet," said Jim Guerard, Adobe's VP of enterprise solutions. "With Adobe Anywhere … team members can work together with centralized media and assets, making it possible for remote users to work jointly on a project from virtually anywhere."

Adobe Anywhere is not part of Creative Cloud, but the Creative Cloud applications are required to use it. (In other words, it won't work with Premiere Pro CS6.)

Also today, Adobe said it was releasing updates to Premiere Pro CC and Prelude CC with 25 new features that the company said focus on "increased speed and ease of the editing process." A company rep said those include "new options for creating and duplicating titles, linking and unlinking clips, [and] keyboard shortcuts for clearing in/out points, navigating edit points and toggling between source and program monitors.

    I won’t use anything CC related. Adobe has lost my business.

      You guys are losing out. Premiere CC is AWESOME, I don’t understand the CC hate. The feature that allows you to sync dual system sound/multiple cameras in the timeline just saved me 7 days worth of work/my life. Took 12 hours to sync 6 days worth of cameras and sound! When you price it out you would have to be a member for 3 1/2 years to pay the full price of production premium CS6. Not to mention free updates? What’s so bad about that? Don’t you generate profits with your software?

    Since we don’t work from various distant locations, who cares? Our three editi suites collaborate quite well on our SAN ststem and CS6. Like Jeff, we won’t be going to Adobe’s cloud and are considering alternative editing packages. After being 20 year customer of Adobe’s, their move to hold customers hostage with the cloud has made it clear it’s time to part ways.

    Broadcasters won’t use what they can’t plug their realtime playout and ingest sevices into.
