Adobe is using the IBC 2012 trade show in Amsterdam to showcase a new server-based system for video post-production pros called Adobe Anywhere. It allows users of Premiere Pro, After Effects and Prelude to work on media stored on a central server - even if that server is in another city or country.
Editors and artists log into the server from within their apps, and can access bins that exist on the server as well as on their host machines. The nifty-seeming part of Adobe Anywhere is that all processing takes place on the server, so only a single stream of video is delivered over the network or Internet with a full res preview of effects, comps, titles and the like. Adobe hasn't said if you can combine local and server-based assets, but considering how it works, it seems unlikely.
Adobe Anywhere is also designed to makes it easy for editors, compositors and motion graphics artists to collaborate on projects, as well as sharing their projects with others.
Watch Adobe's video below to learn a little more.
We expect more details on Adobe Anywhere soon.
