Go with the Flow23 February 2017
EditShare will exhibit its line of professional collaborative media solutions, including the company’s flagship tiered media storage and integrated asset management products, XStream EFS and Flow, at BVE next week.
EditShare Flow features tools to manage ingest, log, search, retrieve, edit and distribute content and associated metadata, serving as a control and indexing layer across EditShare and third-party storage and archives. The Flow Automation module is designed to allow facilities to simplify complex processes such as transcoding, QC and file delivery, while extensive codec support, including the newly added Apple ProRes along with the full range of industry-standard Avid MXF formats, ensures seamless and efficient remote and proxy-based editing workflows.
The XStream EFS storage platform is marketed as a powerful distributed scale-out file system combined with a highly resilient architecture, specifically developed for media intensive workflows. It’s designed to support large-scale work groups requiring high-bandwidth, high-volume media ingest, transcoding, online collaborative editing and multiplatform distribution of 4K/UHD, 8K and VR content.
Making it’s BVE debut is XStream EFS, which, according to the company, is the first storage 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 is designed to allow 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.
