Square Box will show the new Advanced version of its Adobe Premiere Panel, designed for Adobe Creative Cloud users. The original Adobe Premiere Panel enables any CatDV user to log in and search the CatDV database, and also browse production groups and catalogs, from within Adobe Premiere. The new Advanced version offers powerful enhancements, including keyboard navigation, quick previews, and a robust user interface that presents media, a player, and metadata all within the same panel. Other new tools include a frame-accurate player, the ability to update metadata (for example, to kick off a restore from an archive), and the capability to handle more metadata fields when exporting content to Premiere.
