(Arvato Systems) Gütersloh/Cologne/Las Vegas – From April 7 – 12 the Arvato Systems team can be found at NAB Show held in Las Vegas, presenting prize-winning software solutions alongside their latest software innovations. For the first time Arvato Systems will preview an on-demand, SaaS edition of “VPMS EditMate”, the market-leading production asset management (PAM) for Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC, part of Adobe Creative Cloud®.

The global explosion in video means more and more editing projects and an exponential growth in media and metadata for content creators. Regardless of how disciplined and careful we are, the complexity of editing projects can create confusion and overwhelm existing metadata structures, increasing administrative overhead and slowing the pace of production.

“EditMate” addresses these challenges by bringing all your projects and media into a single, searchable library – eliminating complex folder structures and putting all your projects at your fingertips. “EditMate” also manages project templates, automatically importing regularly used media assets (idents, graphics, bugs etc) into projects and setting up sequence parameters.

Work Anywhere with advanced streaming
The high bit-rates of professional video, and the large file sizes can make remote editing tedious and even impractical. “EditMate” offers an adaptive streaming engine that uses available bandwidth to deliver a high quality, Full HD “proxy” – giving you the full Adobe Premiere Pro CC experience and toolset but without needing to wait for, or copy large media files. Once you’ve completed your edit, simply “check in” the sequences or subclips you want to submit, whether to send “to air”, or for review. All of the rendering and high-res creation happens back in the facility or wherever the original material is stored.

Connecting Content & People in the Cloud: “EditMate” as a service
“The Cloud is a key element in the digital business model for anyone seeking agility, flexibility and efficiency. So we’re very excited to present a self-service, cloud-hosted, on-demand version of VPMS EditMate”, explains Stefan Eckardt, Head of Product Management & Presales, Arvato Systems. For the on-demand offering, available through an intuitive web portal, a trial version of “EditMate” will be available, alongside entry-level packages for small to workgroups as well as advanced packages including the remote editing features. Additional seats can be added as needed on a monthly basis while enterprise-wide and “private cloud” deployments will also be available on request. Visitors to the booth at NAB Show will be able to get a a hands-on demo of the solution with an Arvato Systems expert and can register directly to get access to a free trial version of “EditMate” SaaS.
“EditMate” belongs to the ‘Arvato Systems Video Production Management Suite’, a suite of independently deployable and scalable products for advanced media asset management.
