ASSIMILATE Licenses ProRes for SCRATCH and SCRATCH Lab v8 Encoding on Microsoft Windows Platform

Available for Immediate Download (March 27, 2014)

SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --ASSIMILATE, the industry's leading provider of DI and dailies digital workflow tools, announced today new v8 versions of its popular SCRATCH and SCRATCH Lab software, allowing users to encode Apple ProRes files on Microsoft Windows 7/8-based PCs. Customers can now use both the OS X and Windows versions of the software, and artists either on-set, or in post-production are guaranteed the highest possible quality and encoding speeds on each platform. SCRATCH and SCRATCH Lab v8 (including ProRes encoding for Windows 7/8) are available immediately.

"Apple ProRes has become a de facto format in the industry for feature film, episodic television and documentary production," said Steve Bannerman VP of Marketing at ASSIMILATE. "Windows users of professional media and entertainment solutions have typically had to rely on substandard encoding solutions. Quality often suffered and render speeds were painfully slow. ASSIMILATE now delivers best-in-class cross-platform functionality to our customers with officially licensed and certified ProRes, ensuring consistency in workflow and providing an industry-standard deliverable to both Mac and Windows users."
