Harmonic MediaGrid now interoperable with Adobe Anywhere

Video technology provider Harmonic’s MediaGrid shared storage system is now interoperable with the Adobe Anywhere for video collaborative workflow platform. 

Integration of the two products enables media organisations to centralise and manage media delivery services from a primary location while giving users of Adobe professional video tools the benefit of collaborating remotely and the best available quality that can be delivered over the available network connection, according to the pair.

Adobe Anywhere is a collaborative workflow platform that enables users of Adobe professional video solutions to work together, using centralised media, across standard networks. According to Harmonic, the MediaGrid shared storage system provides the bandwidth and storage capacity needed to support the on-demand adaptive bit rate transcoding used by Adobe Anywhere transcode engines to stream content over bandwidth connections that may lack performance normally needed to edit centrally stored high-resolution, high-quality images.

“Adobe Anywhere brings together teams of talent to collaborate and create productions from virtually any location where there is network connectivity. Many editors say now, even in remote environments that don’t have high bandwidth, the combination of MediaGrid and Adobe Anywhere makes it possible to edit efficiently,” said Michael Coleman, senior product manager, collaborative workflows, professional video at Adobe. “Today’s announcement ensures users can tap into the full potential of Adobe Anywhere to enable truly effective remote editing workflows.”
