Maximum Throughput's MAXedit Server Edition Multi-user Editing Solution Now Shipping

Montreal, Canada - ­ Maximum Throughput, developers of server-based media applications and high-performance storage solutions, is shipping its MAXedit Server Edition multi-user editing application.
With MAXedit, broadcasters, postproduction facilities, and studios can set up a multi-seat editing environment that's suited for news production, specialty programming, digital dailies, corporate, and institutional productions and offline editing.

Multiple concurrent users can access MAXedit by launching it from a Web browser. They can review, edit, and render compressed and uncompressed SD/HD content, without using specialized workstations or needing to upgrade existing network infrastructure. Users connected over LAN or over the Internet, simply log on to the MAXedit application server and begin editing -- all editing operations are processed and executed on the MAXedit server. The scalable editing solution fits into any workflow with its broad native support of tapeless, movie, and sequence-of-images formats, such as Panasonic P2, Sony XDCAM, AVC HD, DVCPRO HD, MPEG-2/4, and DPX.

Maximum Throughput also unveiled MAXcut, a companion tool to MAXedit that provides media professionals and their clients a streamlined tool to quickly assemble rough cuts and storyboards that can be refined by a craft editor in MAXedit. MAXcut is designed for novice and professional editors alike, to easily share creative editing decisions with team members and contribute from anywhere or at anytime to the review and approval cycle associated with any project.
