Final Cut Image Server
Telestream has announced an Image Server Component for Final Cut Pro, which provides IMX (MPEG-2) file compatibility and direct file transfer between 360 Systems' MAXX servers, and Apple's Final Cut Pro editing systems. The component imports MPEG-2 IMX 30/40/50 M/bit standard definition video, uncompressed audio, and metadata from the MAXX server directly into the Final Cut Pro project bin for editing. It also exports the MPEG project from Final Cut Pro for Ethernet file transfer back to MAXX servers.
360 Systems' MAXX servers use MPEG-2 as the primary file format, and are available in both NTSC and PAL formats. Their feature set allows potential replacement of VTR replacement, satellite ingest, and as play-to-air servers. The MAXX Server includes 3 video channels, and stores up to 170 hours of MPEG-2 video on internal drives.
Priced at $495, the Flip4Mac Image Server Component is now available immediately.
