Creative Network Design Announces NetMix Pro MetaPlugFirst cross-platform metadata tool for Pro Tools for broadcast workflow applications (May 26, 2005)
Creative Network Design (CND), a leading sound and audio software developer, today announced the release of NetMix Pro MetaPlug, a new audio plug-in for Digidesigns award-winning Pro Tools professional audio system which enables audio editors to instantly upload audio files securely to any professional media asset management system or FTP site.
NetMix Pro MetaPlug is a cross-platform RTAS plug-in for Pro Tools users, which enables users to create an audio file in their selected format and upload it with embedded metadata to an FTP hot folder or a network volume. Audio editors can upload their audio files directly from within the Pro Tools environment.
?The introduction of NetMix Pro MetaPlug represents another step forward in digital broadcast workflow. Todays broadcast professional wants complete integration of their digital media assets, and needs instant upload capability for their work, whether commercials, news stories, or music, said Markus Schmidt, founder and CEO of Creative Network Design. ?With NetMix Pro MetaPlug, our customers can send audio files with metadata right back to a media asset management system. This has been long sought-after by many Pro Tools and NetMix Pro broadcast customers, and we can now offer this integration as a secure plug-in.
NetMix Pro 3.3, which enables spot-to-timeline features for Pro Tools 6.9 XP users, was recently introduced at NAB 2005. Now, the introduction of NetMix Pro MetaPlug enables Pro Tools users to ingest and export audio files with rich metadata from their Pro Tools systems. NetMix Pro MetaPlug users can enter metadata using free-form text or drop-down lists. The metadata output is customizable and can be adjusted to different media asset management systems used in the broadcast industry, including Dalet or Digas.
?Any audio professional working today can benefit from NetMix Pro MetaPlug, including broadcasters, post-production editors, game developers, and animators, continued Schmidt. ?Everything from final mixes, mix elements, sound effects, music, and voiceover can be wrapped with metadata using NetMix Pro MetaPlug.
NetMix Pro MetaPlug is powered by NetMix Pro and NetMix Server. NetMix Pro MetaPlug will be available in the 3rd quarter of 2005. Pricing will be announced prior to the products shipping.
