​EditShare Preps Storage for 4K

EditShare is to launch a new member of the XStream EFS range that is designed to support 4K/UHD.

“The external forces driving the move to 4K/UHD are far greater today than when the industry made the leap from SD to HD a decade ago. The race to monetize this 4K/UHD content is well underway and the time to invest in a scalable infrastructure that delivers is now,” comments Andy Liebman, CEO, EditShare. “This year at the 2016 NAB show we will showcase new XStream EFS storage solutions that provide a clear path for facility owners to support these emerging production needs with 4K-ready storage that can be deployed in incremental steps, along with clever new Flow production tools that scale collaboration by connecting resources into the production pipeline regardless of whether they are located down the street, across the country or on the opposite side of the world.”

In addition, the company is showing web-based application, AirFlow, a cloud workflow as part of is EditShare Flow MAM. The latter contains a range of applications providing media ingest, key asset tracking, transcoding and automation capabilities.

“AirFlow uses on-premise storage already used for high bandwidth workflows to provide secure and cost-efficient access to media from anywhere in the world via a basic Internet connection and standard web browser,” explains Liebman. “No need to pay extra for cloud services or waste valuable time uploading content to an external location such as Amazon or Google. Ideal for fast-turn around projects, AirFlow aids the editorial review process by allowing resources located anywhere in the world to access and review large volumes of content. Producers can review, notate and storyboard content at their desk, in their hotel or on location, eliminating bottlenecks and bringing immense efficiency to the overall post process.”
