With the introduction of Final Cut Pro X, Apple has discontinued its Final Cut Server media asset management software . If you’re now looking for a Final Cut Server alternative, we suggest taking a look at our digital asset management software – Portfolio Server.

In Portfolio Server 10, you can instantly playback video and audio in both our Web Client and native Mac and Windows Desktop Clients. We’ve enhanced our metadata support with the ability to embed XMP metadata to video files, and added the ability to transcode video in our NetMediaMAX solution pack. If you need to migrate assets from an existing Final Cut Server, just point Portfolio Server to an existing FCSvr device for automatic cataloging and synchronization of media files.

Want to see for yourself if Portfolio Server is a good Final Cut Server alternative? You can learn more about Portfolio Server or download a free 30 day trial.

If you’re a Final Cut Server user, we’d love to hear from you in the comments section. What do you plan do to with your Final Cut Server implementation? If you are looking for a replacement, what features and capabilities are important to you in a media asset management system?
