Adobe has launched its collaborative video platform Adobe Anywhere.

Initially previewed at last year’s IBC trade show, the software allows users to log, edit, share and finish content using standard networks and hardware.

The release supports the latest versions of Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Adobe Prelude CC that are available as part of the company’s Creative Cloud offering.

Support for After Effects is expected later this year.

“Video production has always been challenging because it’s difficult for multiple editors to work on the same project and pass huge files back and forth across the internet,” said Adobe Enterprise Solutions vice president Jim Guerard.

“With Adobe Anywhere, these hassles are gone. Team members can work together with centralised media and assets, making it possible for remote users to work jointly on a project from virtually anywhere.”

Hosted on-site, Adobe Anywhere software is installed on a cluster of servers.

It  is powered by the Adobe Anywhere Collaboration Hub, which contains all the project information and metadata, manages user access and allows multiple team members to access and work on the same project files simultaneously.

Adobe’s Mercury Streaming Engine provides real-time viewing streams with GPU-accelerated effects of Premiere Pro CC and Prelude CC sequences.
