EditShare Majors on Security, Cloud, and Global Delivery at NAB 2019

EditShare will introduce Flow 2019 extension 3 at NAB featuring multicam editing capabilities and talks up global collaboration and the ease of IMF compliance mastering with Qscan.

“NAB is all about ensuring that our customers have a path to move their media infrastructure forward and adapt to emerging technologies and changing business needs,” states Andy Liebman, founder, and CEO, EditShare. “Bringing talent to known creative hubs such as Los Angeles, New York or London’s Soho is not a cost-effective cure for facilities. They need to be able to leverage talent wherever they are located and, if need be, bring them into the creative process remotely, and this is where EditShare solves the pain point. With EditShare, facilities can have one collaborative environment with fine-grain control over who can see and access what in that environment, allowing facilities to hire the best talent with security measures that follow industry best practices."

Its latest upgrade to the Flow MAM offers among other items a flexible way to sync multiple cameras and footage together, including separate video and audio clips into one combined asset that can have tracks individually altered to change sync where needed. The asset can then be logged, shared and edited all within the Flow Story client allowing for simple and even shared editing between multiple Flow Story clients at the same time.

Matt Hallin, Video Group Technical Director, EditShare: “Whilst multicam editing is not a new feature in the industry, the ability to edit multicam footage easily and keep track of all the assets within a MAM is still fairly new and very innovative in terms of collaboration. Early feedback from our beta testers is that this feature is a home run for remote editing.”

Flow also expands its cloud-based support for Azure, Google, S3, Wasabi, and Backblaze with scale up and scale down workflows.

With more content than ever being distributed in multiple languages over multiple platforms, QScan supports IMF workflows, allowing users to create one bundle with the variation in language and distribution encapsulated.

Howard Twine, Director of Software Strategy, EditShare, says, “There is a market perception that all IMF tool-sets are expensive; but this is not the case with QScan. With QScan, you can start small and upgrade the product as your business needs grow with no compromise on the technical capabilities. All QScan models can be used very effectively from point of ingest right through to final package delivery. Hence QScan investment ROI can be measured in a matter of weeks, not months.”
