Final Cut Server

As part of yesterday’s Tuesday update, finally released the much-delayed Final Cut Server. Originally announced at NAB 2007, many expected it to be available sometime in mid-2007. Now, just about a year later, the product is finally ready for consumption. According to Apple, Final Cut Server is “a scaleable server application…allows searching across multiple disks and SAN volumes and enables viewing, annotation and approval of content from anywhere using a PC or Mac.”

As for pricing, you can expect to pay $999 USD for a one-server license with 10-concurrent client licenses. If that’s not enough for you, you can get a copy with unlimited client licenses for $1999. You can pick up Final Cut Server now from the Apple Store, or any authorized Apple reseller.

We’ve got the system requirement for you after the jump.
