Is Cloud Editing ready for prime time? One reviewer at BroadcastEngineering.com takes a look at current (or near future) offerings from Adobe and Avid.
Both companies take a similar approach – storing media and doing all editing remotely, feeding only the result down an adaptive pipeline with high resolution stills updated when playback stops. I also think both are aimed at “private” clouds where only the one organization’s folk work in that cloud, as opposed to a service run by Adobe or Avid. Neither have announced any service-based options (to date).
Terence Curren and I discussed collaborative editing and the likely outcomes last year in Episode 40: Will we be outsourced or automated out of existence?
