About the New VK Family of Products
VK Premium Collection
VK Premium Collection offers the full range of VK conform and re-sync features; modernizing any post workflow with its support for AAF and XML formats. Designed for audio facilities that push the audio editing envelope, VK Premium Collection ensures your audio post team has all the bells and whistles to tackle any conform and sync tasks freeing valuable resources to continue the soundtrack creation and finish their projects faster and with the utmost creativity.
Ideal for the TV market, VK Compare supports conform and analysis using industry standard EDL and Cut Lists to derive the invaluable VK Change Plan. Audio editors can easily compare changes from the video editor and quickly sync audio sessions they can even trace historical elements. A perfect tool for TV cut downs, show recaps, and show revisions.
The de-facto standard for re-conforming audio sessions for film, VK CNA integrates the VK Conformer engine with the industry standard Change Note Assistant (CNA). Add support for the new Intel-based Macs, VK CNA earns its reputation as the fan favorite for audio re-conform among the sound editors in the film community.
VK Conformer is Virtual Katys auto conform work horse. Designed for the sole purpose of conforming and non-destructively recompiling Pro Tools sessions, VK Conformer is cut from the original battle-hardened Virtual Katy software which was put to the test on Peter Jacksons ?Lord of the Rings trilogy. Import a CMX 3600 EDL and conform your session to exactly match the picture cut.
VK Connect bridges the gap between the sequence-oriented picture editing world and session-structured audio post world. By implementing a project management methodology, audio workflows are organized into a logical framework of tasks, statuses, and media management processes. The end result is an extremely organized exchange of audio editing assignments, centralized hand-off of projects, simplified reporting of assignment status, and highly controlled media and data exchange. Audio Editors gain a clear view of assignments and are provided with the necessary media and correct versions; Post Supervisors can centralize project assignments and review statuses.
