    AMT and Interplay compatibility

    Hello

    In the AMT documentation it is not specified which AMT version is compatible with which Interplay bundle.

    Can I assume that I can use the latest AMT to get all the fixes for all Interplay versions or are there sone limitations.

    Thanks and Best Regards,

    Jaka

    Re: AMT and Interplay compatibility

    Jaka,

    We have some follow-up questions:

    1. Are you planning to use Interplay Production Web Services to check assets in / out of IP?

    2. If so, what version of IPP WS will you be using?

    - Rob

    Hello Rob

    1. Yes I will be using Interplay WS for checkin/out. (As far as I know this is the only official option)

    2. IPP WS version will depend on the Interplay PAM version that the customer has. As far as I know you can't just use the latest WS version with all Interplay PAM versions since the latest WS version may include client libs which may be to new

    JakaBac,

    > As far as I know this is the only official option

    Yes, for automated processes, this is true. However, the other option for checking things into/out of Interplay is manually via Avid's client apps.

    > IPP WS version will depend on the Interplay PAM version that the customer has

    We designed the IPP WS to be loosley bound to the Interplay Engine. So it does work with mis-matched versions. For example, the latest version of the Web Services, 2.6.1 is known to be compatible with Interplay Produciton 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, and 2.7. However, you should always test integrated systems thorougly before deploying to a customer site.

    > versions or are there sone limitations.

    Avid issues AMT releases on a monthly basis. These releases contain typically contain bug fixes and new features and have no specific dependencies against particular versions of Interplay Production or Media Composer. Avid recommends to always use the latest version of AMT. 

    However, since all of Avid’s products are being developed further, there may be new features and formats that are not yet supported across the entire product line; also deprecated legacy functionality may be removed without advance warning. If this is the case in AMT it will be noted in the AMT change log that is part of the release package, but this change log will not reflect changes in other Avid products. For this reason, testing and qualifying AMT-based integration solutions against the targeted workgroup and editor environments is a mandatory part of the 3rd party development cycle and the sole responsibility of the integration vendor.
