HUDSON, MA — At NAB 2018, Facilis (www.facilis.com) is showcasing the latest advancements to its FastTracker integrated asset tracking software, and is announcing a new panel for seamless integration with Adobe Premiere Pro CC, part of Adobe Creative Cloud.
First launched in 2016, FastTracker now includes many features such as global indexing, automatic preview clip generation, index date/time window searching and tag-specific searching. These features are now available in the shipping version, FastTracker 2.1.
Visitors to the Facilis booth can get a sneak peek at the upcoming version of FastTracker 3.0, which will include asset search and access via a Web browser interface, and direct integration with Adobe Premiere Pro CC.

“A growing number of creative facilities are adopting Adobe Creative Cloud as the standard for content creation, and many of those facilities are using Facilis storage systems,” says James McKenna, VP at Facilis Technology. “Asset tracking and management are a big part of file-based workflows. Facilis has simplified asset tracking and provided access to the database directly from the Adobe Premiere Pro CC interface.”
