MALIBU, Calif., May 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Scriptation, a leader in digital production services, today announced that it has made available a consumer version of its PDF annotation iPad app for download on Apple's App Store.
The Scriptation iPad app features "Transcription Technology," a proprietary algorithm that compares, analyzes, and transfers PDF annotations between documents. The technology, built exclusively for film and television, eliminates the inefficient industry practice of collating paper script pages and recopying notes that results from script changes.
"Script changes affect everyone on the production," said Steven Vitolo, CEO of Scriptation. "By creating a way to transfer notes, Scriptation saves its users valuable time, and gives the film and television industry the paperless solution it desperately needs. And with the new Scriptation app, we're able to meet the demands of our customers by making Scriptation available for personal use for professionals and students."
The app release significantly expands the customer base for Scriptation. Already on the market, Scriptation Studio, a cloud-based production management platform, has been used on shows such as "The Mindy Project," "Hot in Cleveland," and "Crowded."
"Scriptation is a game changer for me," said Emmy award-winning director Michael Spiller ("The Mindy Project", "Modern Family"). "When a new draft comes out, I open the app and select which earlier version I want to import my notes from, and in less than a second, every note I have made is now transferred to the latest draft. Every time I do that it feels like a magic trick."
"With Scriptation, the only thing I need on set is my iPad," said producer/director Geeta Patel ("Meet the Patels"). "The program organizes all my scripts, copying my notes from a production draft onto updated pages instantly, so I can keep up with the speed of production seamlessly."
To celebrate the launch of its consumer version, Scriptation is offering its iPad app for $7.99 during the month of May.
Scriptation is a media and technology company specializing in paperless solutions for the film and television industry. Scriptation launched its first app in 2015, Scriptation Studio, a cloud-based production management platform featuring document security, digital watermarking, and script notifications.
