​Redchillies.vfx Invests In EditShare

EditShare will connect Redchillies.vfx VFX and NLE systems via the EFS scale-out storage platform.

The post-production division of India’s Red Chillies Entertainment, redchillies.vfx, has selected the EditShare EFS scale-out storage platform as its new base infrastructure.

Integrated with the EFS scale-out storage nodes, the Flow MAM provides key ingest, transcode, search and retrieve functions. Flow also provides automation capabilities, allowing the Mumbai facility to minimize redundant tasks while automating more complicated transactions.

“It is important for Red Chillies to be supported with best-of-breed solutions that can manage the challenges of our visual effects-heavy productions,” comments Keitan Yadav, COO of redchillies.vfx. He set the company up in 2006 with Shah Rukh Khan and Haresh Hingorani. “EditShare was the only vendor to demonstrate support for 66 streams within a single node. This level of performance combined with the ability to easily scale the system and manage the assets in collaboration was key in the decision to make this investment.”

 “EditShare supports industry-standard applications from Adobe, Autodesk, Avid, Blackmagic Design and more,” says  Peter Lambert, APAC sales director. “For redchillies.vfx, this means centralizing assets and providing tools to collaborate on building VFX scenes with the capability to play back complex VFX scenes in real time.
