Adobe Anywhere, collaborative editing has arrived

Adobe today announces the release of Adobe Anywhere, a private cloud based collaboration tool. Based around the Creative Cloud Toolset, harnessing the power of internet connectivity to dramatically reshape the manner in which post and production collaborate.

Adobe Anywhere utilizes the Mercury Streaming Engine to deliver full rez content to each team member at a quality based on individual bandwidth, thereby allows users the ability to create or change projects from any location, without modifying the master archive.

In this way Adobe Anywhere harnesses the power of internet connectivity to dramatically reshape the manner in which Team members collaborate, while still maintaing control and versioning at a centralized location.

As a Multi-user, Multi-platform, multi-application replacement for individuals to collaborate across town or around the world.  It provides a shared collection of assets, media and sequences that can all be edited virtually anywhere by members of your Production, allowing for a unified collaboration,

Larger workgroups will benefit the most from reductions in localized hardware costs, as the Mercury Streaming Engine supplies media specific to the bandwidth capabilities of each user, while the masters remain untouched in a centralized location. Allowing for editors and artists to work on everything from the smallest notebook or a beefed up workstation, negating the need for every user to be tied to individualized storage.

Adobe Anywhere controls collaboration at the user level with Version-control features that significantly reduce project conflicts and make it easy to revert to older versions when necessary.

To share your changes, you must first update your local project from the shared production resources online. This brings any shared changes into your private view. If anyone else has changed the same asset you are working on, you are given the opportunity to keep the other person’s changes, your changes, or both. Regardless of which option you use to resolve a conflict, data is never lost, because Adobe Anywhere’s built-in versioning system.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance.

    I must say that you’ve done a fantastic job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari.

    Outstanding Blog!
