syncVUE is billed as the world’s first media synchronizer designed to synchronize viewing of media files across multiple (remote) locations – using SKYPE technology as a communication layer.
syncVUE integrates a powerful media player with frame accurate collaborative control enabled by the extremely popular SKYPE network with VOIP. Capable of playing any media file supported by QuickTime (including Windows Media and MXF files via a separate plug-in from Telestream), syncVUE leverages the video/audio chat capabilities of SKYPE with its own synchronized media playback capability.
Participants in a syncVUE session can add time-code-based text annotations (markers) that are automatically propagated to all connected clients. Markers may contain titles and extensive notes for a quick and easy "review and approval" process. If desired, users can opt to create all their annotations "offline", then once connected in a session, their annotations will be instantly inherited by the others clients. When the session is complete, the markers can be exported to popular non-linear editors such as Final Cut Pro or other NLE systems.
