Well, Apple has purchased Artbox and will be introducing a new product called Final Cut Server. More on that to come I am sure.
Artbox, by Proximity, is a great little media asset management solution from some friends down under. It has the ability to catalog assets from Final Cut, but much more. You can also create XML files to be imported, review and approve and automate certain functions. If you’re an editorial house that depends on Final Cut Pro then you have to check it out!
