CLIPTOUCH SERVER

FAST AND FLEXIBLE ASSET MANAGEMENT IS JUST A DRAG&DROP AWAY

ClipTouch Server is a lightweight media asset management, media review, and archiving platform, focused on simplicity, speed, and openness for integration.

Using ClipTouch Server you can manage video clips (including chapters), images, audio files, documents, and filesystem folders. It scales from managing assets locally on your MacBook, up to hundreds of thousands of assets on a dedicated host, including collaboration across multiple clients on a StorNext SAN.
You can interact with assets using ClipTouch Server for Mac, ClipTouch for iPhone and iPad, ClipTouch for Web, and the ClipTouch panel for Adobe Premiere. You can manage assets even while they are archived within your StorNext archive.

ClipTouch Server is proven across a wide variety of workflows including powering automation for broadcasters, delivering polished-and-secure rushes review for film production and post-production companies, and managing peta-scale archives for public sector and life science organisations.

ClipTouch Server is built on modern UNIX, macOS, and web technologies. Powered by SQLite, Apache2 and Vue3 it provides a secure and flexible platform for integration. Automatic import and asset metadata parsing facilities, an easily extendable data model, scriptable command-line mode and RESTFul webservice API, all provide easy access to ClipTouch Server's core technologies for any custom workflow integration. Built-in integration with Quantum's StorNext webservice API enables multi-tier StorNext archive management of your assets with unmatched simplicity.

CLIPTOUCH SERVER

ClipTouch Server's native macOS App offers a user experience that is unmatched by web based interfaces. Road tested by companies like Wingnut Films and Lucasfilm, the native client has served as the asset management and asset review curation tool in the most demanding environments, where multiple windows, copy&paste and drag&drop are a must, and where a completely private, cloud free option to share your clips is essential.

    Our RESTful JSON webservice allows you to search, view, edit and add assets to ClipTouch Server for your integration tool or custom client, all securely via HTTPS. We utilise these same APIs to create our own Web UI and Adobe Panel.

    Automatically import assets, and scan filesystem paths to pick up new content. ClipTouch Server supports growing files and will automatically parse mxf, mp4, mov, acc, and mp3 file metadata.
