Everything you need, all in one kitchen.
Don’t even think about it.
Project concept and design, editing, motion graphics, music, dealing with the client, those are the things you should be thinking about.
Once your creative work is done, you should be able to hand your project off to an assistant who takes care of the final publishing step for you.
By seamlessly integrating encoding, uploading, remote server features, still frame exporting and HTML coding in the same application, DV Kitchen makes content publishing an afterthought.
Which is how it should be.
You might pay $2,000 – $3,000 for a computer that helps you work 50% faster. How much would you pay for software that helps you work three times faster?
DV Kitchen Workflow Scenario #1:
Encode and upload a folder of movies
Can DV Kitchen take a three hour job down to 10 seconds?
It’s 6 pm, and I’m headed out the door to meet some friends for dinner when I find out there are three movies I need to encode and upload tonight! The client is on the east coast and wants to see the movies as soon as they get in the office. I think, dang! I’m going to have to miss dinner, stay at work until 9 or 10 pm until the movies finish encoding, and then start them uploading with a separate FTP program before I can leave.
How much of my time will this take?
TOTAL WORKFLOW TIME: 8 SECONDS
So DV Kitchen’s integrated encoding and uploading has already saved me three hours of waiting around. This 8 seconds includes launching the application itself! In one day, in one job, DV Kitchen has paid for itself.
I could have encoded the movies tonight, and uploaded them tomorrow, but then I’d be half a day late. In this case DV Kitchen allowed me to get a job done half a day sooner.
The other nice thing about this workflow is that I’m using up my processor power when I’m not using my computer, and I’m using up my office’s bandwidth at night when no one’s on the internet, so it doesn’t slow us down a bit.
DV Kitchen Workflow Scenario #2:
Resize and upload images to a new remote folder on an FTP server
I need a folder of pictures resized to 600 pixels wide, and then uploaded to our website for a new article, but I want to create a new folder on our FTP server to keep organized. I also need to get the HTML embed tags for these images to give to my webmaster.
How long would this normally take? How about under 60 seconds?
Fasten your seat belt.
DV Kitchen Workflow Scenario #3:
Upload still frames from video
Another department in my company has asked for 3 or 4 still frames from a video in HDV format, encoded to JPEGs at 500 pixels wide.
I think about getting still frames from Final Cut Pro or another editing app, exporting them, launching Photoshop, resizing and exporting each still, then launching an FTP program… then I’ll have to write down the URL for each image… Sheesh! I’m tired just thinking about all that.
Then, I remember, hey! I own DV Kitchen I can do this in two and a half minutes!
Again, the advantages of an elegant, integrated toolset are evident.
DV Kitchen makes your remote server feel like it’s right on your desktop.
