The long awaited Apple Final Cut Server was released today, ahead of this years NAB show. It’s been a long time coming (more than two years almost), but you can finally have your cake and eat it too. From Apple’s FCS page:
Whether you work in a production boutique or a global news network, you can use Final Cut Server to free up more time for creative work. Final Cut Server can automatically manage thousands of assets, execute dozens of routine production tasks, and keep every member of your team in sync.
The scalable client/server software makes it easy to work the way you want to work, using as many or as few features as you need — whether you’re producing a 30-second spot, the nightly news, a documentary film, or a major motion picture.
