Kumulate is a modular platform which allows users to build a storage ecosystem, utilising asset management, workflow orchestration and transcode modules to store media assets efficiently.
Media management solutions company Masstech has launched the Adobe Premiere Pro panel for its workflow management platform Kumulate.
Adobe Premiere Pro users can now access Kumulate, from directly within Premiere Pro via an intuitive panel. The company says the Adobe panel can be easily added to any Kumulate system with minimal configuration.
Storage movement and workflow tools are then presented as a plug-in within Adobe Premiere Pro, allowing users to access their entire inventory across any type of online or deeper storage tier, including cloud, local disk, optical disk, and LTO.
All assets on all storage tiers are searchable to Premiere Pro users from within the new panel, using intuitive search criteria including structured, unstructured, and time-based metadata. These tools allow users to access their content libraries from within Adobe Premiere Pro, dramatically speeding up workflows.
Kumulate’s UI features familiar editing tools such as Adobe markers to define and initiate partial restores when only a portion of a file or project is required.
For customers operating multiple Kumulate systems, Kumulate’s Federated Search promises to enable search across the content in disparate systems, and subsequent copy of remote assets to the local storage.
Other Kumulate features now accessible from within Premiere Pro include frame-accurate proxy playback of stored assets; bi-directional marker support (Adobe markers can be included within the archived asset and can be imported back into Premiere from Kumulate); and advanced monitoring.
Transfers, transcodes, and workflow jobs can be viewed within the Adobe Panel, enabling users to monitor the progress of their own jobs as well as those initiated by other users.
Commenting on the product, George Kilpatrick, CEO, Masstech, said: “Kumulate already works with a huge range of MAMs, PAMs, NRCS systems and NLEs, but we are delighted to be able to offer additional workflow benefits to Adobe Premiere Pro users. Being able to access their entire video library in our next-generation storage without leaving their editing application will allow Adobe users to spend more time on the core creative component of their job and less time searching for files and assets.”
