Apple Ships Final Cut Server
According to Apple, Final Cut Server has broad search capabilities, which extend from simple keywords to complex combinations of IPTC, XMP and XML metadata. The application also configures a range of specific access controls that define user permissions on an asset or project basis.
Final Cut Server is a scalable server application, so it supports many different sized workgroups. Of course, Final Cut Server is tightly integrated with Apple's Final Cut Studio. The server tool also includes Compressor 3, Apple's industrial strength digital encoding and compression tool.
Final Cut Server is available immediately for US$999 for one server and 10 concurrent client licenses, and $1,999 for one server and unlimited client licenses.
