Flow gets an overhaul
The latest release of Editshare’s Flow MAM (2019 Extension 2) is aimed at simplifying media sharing and collaboration with embedded production tools to track, search, retrieve, and edit media across on-premise and cloud-based storage solutions.
“Flow 2019 Extension 2 brings the capabilities and scalability required by today’s fast-growing and fast-moving production facilities,” states Matt Sandford, Flow Product Manager, EditShare. “From floating licenses to offloading production tasks across multiple worker nodes to support for more third-party storage solutions, EditShare customers have more control and choices for optimizing their media operation and growing their business.”
Through the EditShare ELS licensing system, managers eliminate the need to keep track of individual licenses. Users can move to the next available station and use a Flow license. Each license offers the latest updates and capabilities, making it easy to deploy across large workgroups that have a continuous changes with regards to resources.
Straight forward admin controls allow users to assign tasks such as media ingest and proxy creation to specific worker nodes simultaneously, offloading jobs across multiple worker node servers to accelerate the overall production workflow. Sandford elaborates, “With the ability to multi-assign ingest ports, facilities can improve the capture to edit process, speeding up the workflow tremendously.”
Flow 2019 Extension 2 lets users create a sequence based on the Story Ranged Marker metadata - useful in fast turnaround scenarios. Sequences can be generated, published and shared with only a couple of clicks.
Users can also now move their existing data from an older server to a newer one or a replacement one. Sandford explains, “Imagine a scenario where users have set up Flow but have outgrown the hardware limitations, you don't want to have to start over when moving to a more powerful system. This feature allows users to migrate all their data over quickly and easily. It’s all about being able to easily adapt and grow.”
