At NAB 2012, (booth SL7410), AlterMedia, Inc., developer of Studio Suite, the leading studio management software, will be demonstrating the all new Studio Suite X. This major update has over 50 new features, starting with a slick new appearance, iPhone and iPad access, sync to Google calendar, and deeper integration with desktop applications.
Studio Suite tracks and manages contacts, budgeting, scheduling, projects, invoicing, library & labels, media assets, equipment & media inventories, communications, maintenance, and more. It is a comprehensive software package that integrates with Final Cut, Avid, Pro Tools, QuickBooks, MYOB & AccountEdge, Address Book, iCal, Outlook, Active Directory etc., and is user-customizable, affordable and networkable across Mac, PC, and iOS platforms.
As production and post-production become more and more distributed, it's obvious that the production management software needs to be distributed as well. Studio Suite X includes full-fledged iPhone and iPad apps, allowing users to be able to make updates to the data regardless of their location.
Users are also looking for a management solution that has a powerful back end, with a free, easily-accessible front end. This is where Studio Suite meets Google calendar. Bookings that are entered in Studio Suite can now be auto-synced with Google Calendar, and changes made there are fed back into Studio Suite.
"I'm as proud as ever of this release", states AlterMedia CEO Joel Stoner. "It has a stunning new appearance, iPad & iPhone apps, deep integration with other applications, and free calendar access (via Google Calendar), so this a no-brainer upgrade. If you’re not already a Studio Suite user, you’re going to want to be."
Additional new features of SSX include push notifications and SMS messaging, improved equipment rental workflow, more flexible rate structures, extended integration with other applications and overall faster and easier operation.
After 15 years, AlterMedia continues to be the leader in studio management software, with over 6,000 users at more then 1,400 facilities in over 40 countries. The user-base includes leading production & post production companies, broadcast networks, rental houses, music studios, Fortune 500 corporations, local, state, and federal governments and military, even including students & hobbyists.”
