Avid’s NetReview lets crew see footage online

Cyberbiz Brief

Avid Technology, the maker of the film editing system used by much of the entertainment industry, said Tuesday that it has launched NetReview, an Internet-based service that enables productions to review footage online rather than having to duplicate, mail and wait for the delivery of traditional videotapes for comments from filmmakers and producers to post-production houses.

Based on the Massachusetts company’s AvidProNet Review & Approval service, NetReview crouches in on territory that already includes players NeTune, WamNet, Media.net and TRW’s PicturePipeline, among others. System, which operates on a customer’s secure network, is expected to help increase productivity and reduce post-production costs. For example, a tape operator can simply upload media to the NetReview server and invite reviewers to view and comment on it from their office . Pricing is $29,950.
