MediaReactor Workstation is a direct plug-in version of Drastic's MediaReactor file translation system. Rather than having to use a separate translation step, the artist can work with incoming footage directly in their preferred creative software.
MediaReactor Workstation is available on Windows (XP, Vista, 7 - 32/64) and MacIntosh OS-X Intel (10.5+). It provides plug-ins for Assimilate Scratch/Lab, Final Cut Pro 7, Avid Media Composer, Adobe CS5.x/6.x/CC, EasyDCP, QuickTime and DirectShow. Many other applications that utilize the QuickTime and DirectShow interfaces are also supported.
Contemporary production work flows are able to access an ever-increasing choice of acquisition, production, mezzanine and output devices and formats. Unfortunately, the proprietary nature of these media tools often leads to time consuming and potentially lossy translations of content, simply to allow other creative tools to access them. MediaReactor Workstation was designed to alleviate this problem. MediaReactor Workstation provides access to the widest range of file formats of any single plug-in package. It specializes in high quality conversion on the fly, on everything from ancient OMF JPEG to the latest camera acquisition formats from Weisscam, Phantom and Arri. Coupled with its incredible range of file and codec support, MediaReactor Workstation provides a group of plug-ins that make the content directly compatible with most major editing and creative software on Mac and Windows systems.
