Appleâ€™s Final Cut Server, a software solution for media asset management and workflow automation, is now shipping.
Apple describes Final Cut Server as a scaleable server application which automatically catalogs large collections of assets, allows searching across multiple disks and SAN volumes and enables viewing, annotation and approval of content from anywhere using a PC or Mac.
â€œWhether producing a 30-second spot, the nightly news or a major motion picture, Final Cut Studio is the choice of editors around the world,â€ said Rob Schoeben, Appleâ€™s vice president of Applications Product Marketing. â€œWith the introduction of Final Cut Server, collaboration just got a whole lot easier for millions of editors, producers and clients who work with Final Cut Studio.â€
Final Cut Server is available immediately through the Apple Store (www.apple.com), Appleâ€™s retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers for a suggested retail price of $999 (US) for one server and 10 concurrent client licenses, and $1,999 (US) for one server and unlimited client licenses.
