eMAM provides an extension panel inside Adobe Premiere Pro, showing all of the available projects, categories, and individual assets -- regardless of location. Editors can search and browse the content, pulling only required native resolution media to local storage for editing, all within Adobe Premiere Pro. Users can also export media and sequences to eMAM for review and approval, for email and social media sharing, for digital delivery, and for archiving. eMAM users worldwide can collaborate with editors by creating projects, adding media, marking, subclipping, and rough cut editing directly from the tablet or web interfaces. Additional features include intelligent archive/restore, project and file versioning, mezzanine/proxy edit support, media localization, and now-team project support. The eMAM system extends the Team Project collaboration environment with support for non-technical users, for remote users, for media management and sharing, and for any type of cloud system.
David Miller, COO of Empress commented, “With a philosophy of open architecture and support for third party integrations, the Adobe video team is a key collaborator as we build complete workflow solutions for our customers worldwide.”
“Our goal is to provide editors and post-production professionals with the best products to create impactful video content through seamless workflows,” said Sue Skidmore, head of partner relations for professional video at Adobe. “The Empress eMAM provides Premiere Pro users with a comprehensive and integrated asset management solution.”

Empress Showcases Advanced Adobe Premiere Pro CC Integration at IBC 2016
Unifying diverse storage, archiving, workflows, and locations into a single production pipeline
NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) SEPTEMBER 09, 2016 :Empress Media Asset Management, LLC (Empress) will present version 3.7 of its flagship eMAM™ platform, offering improved integration with Adobe® Premiere® Pro Creative Cloud at IBC booth 7.B33. eMAM is a media asset management software system providing a feature-rich online digital library with best-of-breed integrations for complete workflow process solutions. eMAM unites different on-premise and cloud storage and archive systems, different locations, and different workflow systems into one unified, accessible web or tablet-based interface.
Adobe Premiere Pro CC is a market-leading video editing system. The eMAM integration panel inside the editing desktop provides users with direct access to managed projects, categories, and individual assets regardless of location. Editors can search and browse the content, pulling only required native resolution media to local storage for editing. They also now have the option of using mezzanine (proxy edit) media for editing in shared environments when network and storage access may be an issue, including access to the full resolution media for final conform. Project versions, check-in, check-out, and project locking make it easy to monitor and control changes. Editors have access to all of the metadata, history, comments, and file version information from within Adobe Premiere Pro CC. Editors can also directly send review and approval links from the eMAM panel.
eMAM users can use any web interface or native applications for Android and iOS devices to collaborate on current projects. Users can select media, add markers and subclips, and create sequences to share with their editors. Users can also view projects during editing. Once projects are completed, eMAM customers can use the system for email, social media sharing, digital delivery, and web publishing.
Finished projects can be archived safely and affordably. eMAM will ensure media used in other projects will not be removed from editing storage. eMAM offers direct integration with most of the archive systems, so the process is a one-touch process from the eMAM interfaces or the eMAM panel inside Adobe Premiere Pro CC. Archives can permanently store project media much more cost-effectively than expensive shared production storage, while maintaining the ability to browse, preview, and restore media within eMAM.
David Miller, COO of Empress commented, “The open architecture of Adobe Premiere Pro CC allows us to continue to innovate, building complete workflows for customers that unite editors and stakeholders worldwide in the production process.
“The Empress eMAM extends the Adobe Premiere Pro CC toolset for editors and post production teams,” said Sue Skidmore, head of partner relations for professional video at Adobe. “Integrating workflows this way means creative professionals can focus on more on storytelling and less on technology.”
Version 3.7 of eMAM is available from Empress Media Asset Management at www.empressmam.com. Visitors to IBC 2015 can see eMAM at booth 7.B33 at the RAI Convention Centre in Amsterdam.
