Adobe and Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. Expand Alliance

Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced that it has expanded its strategic media technology alliance with Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (TBS, Inc.), initially announced in March 2009. This expansion of the alliance is focused on efforts to take advantage of the extensibility of Adobe’s video production toolset to create a cross-location editing environment that is faster and more efficient and format capable than today’s broadcast industry workflows. The initial goal of the extended alliance is to leverage Adobe’s video editing solutions, including Adobe Premiere® Pro CS4 software, to advance the speed and efficiency of video editing workflows at Turner, including Turner’s news production environments.

“Turner had earlier formed a strategic technical alliance with Adobe because of our shared interest in creating and maintaining metadata to enhance and accompany our digital media distribution. This has led us to a further shared interest in digital media workflows within our production environments, including our news environments,” said Scott Teissler, chief technology officer at TBS, Inc. “We are finding that Adobe’s product infrastructure and our workflow experience and other integration partners are combining to produce an ingest-to-edit-to-air architecture up to our fairly demanding performance requirements.”

A Streamlined Video Production Workflow

The expanded alliance with Turner is consistent with Adobe’s strategy of working with customers to develop solutions that enhance and extend content creation and delivery across multiple media. Adobe and Turner are collaborating to improve the speed and turnaround of video production in the fast-paced newsroom environment, making workflows more streamlined and integrated and reducing the time journalists and video editors spend on redundant tasks.

“The expansion of our alliance with Turner, a prominent broadcaster with a worldwide reach and reputation, demonstrates the importance of providing integrated newsroom video editing solutions that are fast and efficient,” said John Loiacono, senior vice president, Creative Solutions Business Unit at Adobe. “Our vision is to help broadcasters, media companies and video professionals make the most of their content, and this alliance exemplifies that.”

Adobe Creative Suite® 4 Production Premium software offers exceptional support for tapeless workflows. It also provides the foundation for next-generation broadcasting workflows as well as helping broadcasters build more profitable online business models. With native support of RED R3D, Panasonic P2, Sony XDCAM EX and AVCHD (Advanced Video Codec High Definition) in Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 software, editors now have one of the fastest possible workflows to view what the camera captured without loss of fidelity – all without transcoding or rewrapping. XMP metadata support across components of Adobe Creative Suite 4 Production Premium simplifies the production workflow, resulting in online content that gives viewers new ways to interact with and search for video, while giving media owners new opportunities to track and monetize content. In addition to smooth integration with After Effects® CS4 and Photoshop® CS4 Extended software, Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 software includes the ability to import Final Cut projects and exchange content with Avid systems. Editors can complete rough cuts in the field and bring them back to the newsroom for further fine-tuning using Adobe Premiere Pro on Mac or PC systems.

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda.

Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
