(Culver City, California--April 3, 2014) DAX, the leading provider of production workflow applications, together with Prime Focus Technologies (PFT), is introducing DAX|Mobile® with iDailies®, a subscription service exclusively for Apple’s iPhone. The new iPhone app joins the iPad app in the iTunes App Store as an innovative collaboration workflow tool for professional TV/movie production, post-production, marketing and creative executives who require working 24/7 access to in-progress content.
“Our new iPhone app is a result of heavy market demand,” said Patrick Macdonald-King, CEO DAX and President, Prime Focus Technologies North America. “It truly extends our digital workflow platform further into the mobile space, enabling secure viewing of content on your iPhone from anywhere. As already experienced on iPad, top movie and TV producers depend on secure mobile access to always be connected with their work. We believe this product will seal our position as the market leader in digital production workflow tools.”
“Mobile-enabled workflow tools are accelerating the transformation of the content production process,” said Ramki Sankaranarayanan, Founder and CEO Prime Focus Technologies. “Mobility is a key component of our product development strategy and DAX|Mobile translates that vision. With Mobility, Studios can drive collaboration on the fly and drastically reduce time to market.”
The DAX|Mobile app is available exclusively to all of DAX’s customers which includes most major Hollywood studios and network/cable channels, including top-rated shows such as “Mad Men,” “Glee,” “Homeland,” “NCIS,” “CSI,” “Big Bang Theory”
and “The Mentalist.”
Any user who already has DAX|Mobile for iPad will get the app for iPhone automatically.
DAX|Mobile for iPhone includes encrypted streaming, video/script watermarking, the ability to view all docs, direct link access from email to screening room as well as our newest feature, Secure Offline for Video, where you can cache encrypted content on your iPad for 15 days (works great with Apple TV).
