With an update for the Final Cut suite rumored to be released around March or early April, a new client for Final Cut Server showed up in the App Store. And I believe this is the first native Final Cut Server client specifically designed for the iPad – ClipTouch by Factorial. ClipTouch (which requires iOS 4.2, Final Cut Server v1.5.1 and access to open ports 8821 and 8826) works “out of the box” by giving you access to all your video assets stored in FCS, browse and collaborate on your media taking advantage of the iPad’s large screen and multi-touch functionalities.
You can use the iPad app instead of a review workstation to access your library over local or remote WiFi, 3G and VPN, download and view clip proxies, change the default asset’s metadata and add annotations. ClipTouch works with the standard format of clip proxies, but a compressor is available to achieve optimal results. A search feature is available, together with the possibility to clip the timecode display.
ClipTouch for iPad is available at $14.99 in the App Store. More screenshots below.
