APPLE FINAL CUT PRO AND ADOBE PREMIERE PRO CS4
NAB demonstration of better efficiency, communication by exporting comments and on-screen
mark-ups from Annotative Player module of video.Market7 directly into leading video edit suites
NAB SHOW, LAS VEGAS, April 20, 2009 – Market7, Inc., a provider of web services for collaboration in the development and management of creative content, today introduces a set of enhancements to the Annotative Player module of the company’s flagship video.Market7SM service for online video collaboration. This module presents uploaded video with capabilities for reviewers to provide feedback and drive towards consensus on editing and post production. New features include capability for free-hand on-screen drawing over footage, and XML-based export of comments and on-screen mark-ups from the Annotative Player module to be opened in the leading Apple® Final Cut Pro® and Adobe® Premiere Pro® CS4 video editing suites.
These capabilities are available immediately and being demonstrated by Market7 here at the NAB Show in the Final Cut Pro Users’ Group (FCPUG) SuperBooth, #SL10129 on the lower level of the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“Integrating video.Market7 with the leading video edit suites from Apple and Adobe rounds out our vision for comprehensive collaboration in the video production process,” says Seth Kenvin, CEO of Market7. “At NAB, the most important event for video editing and production, Market7 is empowering professionals in the field to select actionable feedback from reviewers and integrate it directly into their edit suites as a singular environment for clear comprehension and efficient execution on client edit decisions.”
The Annotative Player module of video.Market7 displays video that can be uploaded from practically any popular digital format. In addition to normal video player controls, this module also provides messaging features that can include specificity as to corresponding points or spans on the video’s timelines, as well as highlights of particular, pertinent portions of the screen. Reviewers can see and reply to each other’s comments. Tags can also be applied to particular comments to designate them for filtering as the ultimate edit decisions. The latest enhancements, available now and demonstrated at NAB, include extending commenting capabilities to on-screen, free-hand drawing, and exporting of either all comments or filtered comments, with on-screen mark-ups, through the XML protocol. These exports can be opened and displayed as timeline-based markers with onscreen overlay channels in Apple Final Cut Pro versions 5 or 6 and in Adobe Premiere Pro 4.0.1, which is part of Adobe Creative Suite® 4.
Market7 is exhibiting the entire video.Market7 service, including the new Annotative Player capabilities, at the FCPUG SuperBooth throughout NAB exhibit hours. The company is also delivering presentations of its web service at the ProMAX Systems Digital Lounge in the Venetian / Palazzo Hotel on Tuesday April 21 at 6:00 PM and at the demonstration area of the FCPUG SuperBooth on Thursday April 23 at 10:00 AM.
