The Nexio NLE Gateway facilitates the integration of Adobe Premiere Pro and Apple Final Cut Pro 7 and X (FCP) nonlinear editing software with the Nexio server system. It consists of a powerful Imagine Communications hardware and software system, boasting a host of key integration features. Included in the bundle is a suite of plug¬in applications (Nexio Browser and Nexio Export) for installation on customer provided NLE workstations.
The NLE Gateway allows third¬party editing directly on the Nexio shared storage system. The CIFS protocol facilitates the bridge between the Nexio shared storage system and NLE clients. The CIFServer application from Imagine Communications presents a filtered list of supported content on the Nexio shared storage system. Direct editing of that content without first copying clips to or from local storage is therefore made possible.
Edit¬in¬place support includes MOV wrapped DV25/DVCPRO25, DVCPRO50, DVCPRO HD, AVC¬Intra™ IMX (30/40/50), XDCAM® HD (35 Mb), XDCAM HD422 (50 Mb), XDCAM EX, DNxHD, graphics files (BMP, JPG, TGA, TIF, PSD, PNG) and PCM uncompressed audio formats. Support for editing clips while being ingested, as well as the ability to connect both Mac and Windows® clients to the NLE Gateway is provided. Editing in place is enabled by the use of one or more Nexio NLE Gateways that present the Nexio content to the NLE client as though it were simply a network file share. By connecting through the gateway, the Nexio Browser exposes all compatible MediaBase™ content as MOV files on the NLE client. Nexio Browser also exposes standard MediaBase metadata, provides a preview window for quick reviewing of content, allows metadata searches and manipulation, and enables immediate placing of desired content from this window into the NLE project by linking, not copying.
After Nexio Browser has expedited the placing of content in an NLE project, the full feature set of the NLE is available for generating an edit. Completed edits are turned into new highresolution IDs by rendering flattened files back onto the Nexio SAN with the Nexio Export plug¬in.
