Publish date:

Primestream, a producer of media asset management and broadcast automation software, launches FORK 4.0, the latest version of its acclaimed FORK Production Suite for managing and automating broadcast workflows.
New features, modules, APIs and integrations make FORK 4.0 Primestream’s most complete platform yet for administering complex media workflows of all kinds, the company says.
Among the new features is FORK Logger, a tool for adding metadata to video, as well as new codec support, archive and restore workflows, and the most robust Windows version of the FORK Production and server application, the company says.
“FORK 4.0’s configurability and flexibility is incredibly unique, it lets us take industry complexity and transform it into simplicity for the user,” said Claudio Lisman, Primestream president and CEO. “FORK has evolved once again to help our customers stay on top of change and meet their goals for quality and profitability,” he said.
FORK 4.0 features Avid Media Composer workflows with support for Panasonic AVC-Intra and FORK Hybrid Ingest into Avid’s MXF OP-Atom wrapped within a QuickTime movie, combining the best of both worlds, Primestream says.
Hybrid Ingest enables “Edit-While-Capture” workflow integrations with Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro 7, and Final Cut Pro X, without doubling or tripling storage capacity.
New FORK modules include the cross-platform, customizable FORK Logger metadata-tagging tool that enables live and prerecorded video to be logged with speed and accuracy, Primestream says.
