EditShare is a technology pioneer in networked shared storage and tapeless, end-to-end workflow solutions for the post-production, TV and film industries.
EditShare’s groundbreaking products are designed to improve efficiency and workflow collaboration every step of the way, including Geevs video capture and playout servers, XStream shared storage, Ark backup software and Flow media asset management, and Lightworks – the world’s first three-platform (Windows/OS X/Linux) professional non-linear video editing application (NLE).
Founded in 2003 by CEO Andy Liebman, an acclaimed film and documentary producer, EditShare was created to offer a flexible, more-affordable solution to media sharing, using standard Gigabit Ethernet for connecting clients. EditShare was able to offer an alternative to the expensive SAN and Fibre Channel solutions by providing the industry's first high-performance Network Attached Storage for editing.
A number of ‘firsts’ have been achieved along the way, strengthening EditShare’s reputation as an innovator in its field. EditShare was the first and only non-Avid solution to offer Avid Project sharing; the first storage solution in its industry to support 10 Gigabit Ethernet; 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.
Products include Flow 3 Media Asset Management, Geevs for ingest and playout, a line of EditShare Storage solutions with scaleable media sharing, Lightworks NLE, and Ark backup and archiving on disk or tape.
