Final Cut Server Ships

Apple on Tuesday finally began shipping Final Cut Server, its media asset management tool for video production houses. The software announced last year automatically gathers media assets across a network to let editors work from a common pool of resources, including on Storage Area Networks (SANs). While intended for and working closely with Final Cut Studio, Mac and Windows clients let users search for content they can edit without having to depend on Apple's creative software. It can scale from just two users to the largest broadcasters, the company says.

The utility includes Compressor 3 to encode professional-grade video both for traditional video sources as well as portable devices such as the iPhone. Apple sells Final Cut Server in a 10-client version for $999 and an unlimited client version for $1,999, both of which are available immediately through the online Apple Store.
