NAB: Exploring collaborative workflows on the exhibit floor
It was back to the showroom floor for me today as I checked in on a number of exhibitors with an eye toward collaborative workflows.
My first stop was the Adobe booth to take in a demonstration of Adobe Anywhere — Adobe’s collaborative platform for Premiere, Prelude and After Effects. The workflow is built around a number of users, working either in house or remotely, that can access and work with the same footage all stored in one place called a Collaboration Hub.
This Hub works alongside a company’s existing media storage structure and asset management system, and essentially streams media to the user wherever they might be using Adobe’s Mercury Streaming Engine. It’s a very interesting approach to working remotely, and I’ve been interested in learning more about this product for some time. However, the demo today was more focused on the relationship between Prelude and Premiere utilizing a smaller two-person team, and not the larger After Effects / Premiere implementation I would be interested in exploring. I am going to try to set up a demo at the Adobe booth for a better look at the system.
