Sync-AV—Workflow Tool for File-Based Video Shootings

Document Thumbnail

The Sync-AV workflow tool eases the sorting and synchronization of video and audio footage without the need of expensive special hardware. It supports the preproduction, shooting, and postproduction. It consists of three elements: a script-information and metadata-gathering iOS app that is synchronized with a server-back-end and that can be used to exchange information on-set; a server database with a web-front-end that can sort files by their metadata and show dailies and that can be used to distribute and manage information during the pre-production; and a local import client that manages the footage ingest and sorts the files together. The client also takes care of the synchronization of the video that contains audio and separately recorded audio files and it renames the files and implements the metadata.
