Recently Adobe has been posting about “Broadcast Partners” for Premiere Pro. The basic idea behind these partnerships is a plugin for Premiere Pro CS6 that allows native integration with the software making it easier to you products and software in your workflow.
So far they have shown off:
- Telestream Episode Encoder
- Dalet Media Asset Management
- MOG mxfSPEEDRAIL
- Strawberry from FlavouSys
- Harris NEXIO Server and NewsForce newsroom
Now most of these Services seem foreign to most of us in the church, but one I think could be very useful is the Pond5 Integration.
Pond5 is a royalty-free Service similar to iStockPhoto.com, RevoStock.com, AudioJungle.net and VideoHive.net, where you can buy Audio, Video and SoundFX for your projects. The problem in the past has been testing out this media before you hand out the cash and make an investment. The new Pond5 Integration in Premiere Pro look like it will help solve this issue.
After you login into your account you can download a low quality watermarked version of the video or audio clip, add it to your project and if you feel like it a fit you hit conform and the purchase happens in the background and seamlessly add the full res, high quality version to your project. Pretty sweet right?
