EditShare Brings Enhanced Scale Out Storage and MAM

On display at the 2017 NAB show, EditShare has XStream EFS distributed storage and Flow production asset management for 4K, UHD, HDR, VR and remote productions.

EditShare XStream EFS is used by thousands of media professionals every day,” says Andy Liebman, CEO, EditShare. “This widespread adoption reflects the platform’s high performance and scalability, resilient ‘no single point of failure’ architecture and unique features, such as native clients for all major operating systems and ‘Storage Goals’ that let customers steer media to SSDs or spinning disks.

“Adding to the appeal, EFS storage can be integrated easily into all types of workflows, from Avid or Premiere editing to VFX creation and render farms, and it can be combined with our own Flow asset management platform, providing automation, remote access, and organizational tools that help control assets and bring huge efficiencies to the production process. While the EditShare environment is very streamlined, it’s also very open and with our continued commitment to third-party integrations, we are enabling customers to connect a wide range of products into the EditShare core to best meet their business needs.”

The flagship XStream EFS storage platform is claimed as the first such system to allow users to “dynamically define the combination of storage technology (HHD/SSD) and file protection that is applied to media and project spaces”. This new capability on show in Vegas allows users to optimize storage technology and file protection for each step in their post-production workflow, all on a single storage platform with a single media namespace.

The EditShare Flow MAM features fresh integration with SGL FlashNet. “Answering the market demand for an open platform with key third-party integration, Flow facilitates advanced automated workflows with Interra Baton, VidcheckAmazon S3 and Aspera,” says Liebman.

At the 2017 NAB show, Flow Automation now has the option to add third-party archive capabilities to control external long-term storage solutions by providing integration with SGL’s FlashNet content management platform.

For remote workflows, Flow includes the web-based AirFlow and FlowStory apps. The former allows staff to search, log, edit and play proxies in a web browser from any location. Users can securely download and upload proxy or high-resolution media from on-premise EditShare storage systems from anywhere in the world. With the same remote yet secure access to on-premise EditShare storage, the new Flow Story application lets editors and production teams directly assemble content, add voiceovers and collaborate with other NLEs for finishing, delivery or playout of packages beyond the borders of the facility.
