EditShare, the technology leader in shared media storage and end-to-end tapeless workflow solutions, has announced that its industry-leading shared storage family of products – EditShare XStream, Energy and Field 2 – is compatible with Avid Technology’s new Media Composer v7.0 release.
A Leader in Media and Project Sharing
Pioneering media sharing for production and post-production professionals, EditShare was the first non-Avid solution to offer Avid Project Sharing and the first shared storage solution in the media and entertainment industry to support 10 Gigabit Ethernet. Continuing its leadership with media sharing, EditShare was the first to offer true Project Sharing for Apple Final Cut Pro and the first to deliver a portable shared storage solution with EditShare Field. At NAB 2013, EditShare announced a development partnership with Adobe, providing deeper integration across the Creative Suite and Creative Cloud product lines.
Support for Avid Media Composer v7.0 Across EditShare Tapeless Workflow
EditShare seamlessly integrates high-performance shared storage solutions (XStream and Energy) with video ingest (Geevs and Flow), media asset management (Flow), and archive and backup (Ark) to offer broadcast and post-production professionals a productivity-enhancing, tapeless workflow on a highly scalable infrastructure.
Highlights of the EditShare tapeless workflow
At the center of EditShare’s end-to-end workflow is high-performance shared storage that offers industry-leading stream counts, infinite scalability, and advanced Project Sharing with patented bin and project-locking capabilities for Avid, Final Cut Pro (v7), Adobe Premiere Pro and Lightworks.
Flow and Geevs record Avid DNxHD, ProRes and other industry-standard codecs direct to EditShare central shared storage and produce proxy files in real time, with optional mirrored and automatic backup to EditShare Ark. During ingest, users can log shots and create sub-clips.
The Flow MAM allows users to view proxy file content on their desktops without requiring access to full-resolution media as well as ingest media from file-based sources such as P2 and XDCAM. Simple editing tools and metadata templates let users add information to clips, make rough cuts, and drag-and-drop clips and sequences into their NLEs.
Ark Disk and Tape offer facilities a tiered storage infrastructure with nearline and offline archiving and backup. Ark systems can scale to multiple petabytes and allow users to browse, delete and restore archived materials (including partial restore) from any desktop on the EditShare network.
