New From Apple: Final Cut Server

by , 8:10 AM EDT, April 16th, 2007

Along with Final Cut Studio 2, Apple introduced Final Cut Server during a special event on Sunday. Final Cut Server is a media asset management application designed to work with Final Cut Studio 2 for post production and broadcast professionals. It includes a cross-platform client, supports content browsing, review, and approval on a local network or over the Internet, and automatically catalogs asset collections.


Final Cut Studio

Final Cut Server supports simple keyword searches as well as complex searches that include IPTC, XMP and XML metadata, includes customizable templates that fit typical broadcast, post production, and educational environments, and includes controls for defining user permissions on an asset or project basis. It also supports monitoring assets through the production process and can automatically send project status alerts to editors.

Final Cut Server will be available this summer and will be priced at US$999 for the server and 10 concurrent client licenses, or $1,999 for unlimited client licenses.
