The recently released EditShare Storage v7 is the company’s shared storage product line with media asset management capabilities from its Flow v.3.1 release.
EditShare v7, built on Linux OS, has a new EditShare Connect interface and features a Quality of Service system that reserves bandwidth for high-priority activities, such as realtime capture or playout, and limits the bandwidth of low-priority activities.
Other enhancements include a new EditShare Connect ‘Project Profiles’ feature that remembers which spaces need to be displayed and/or mounted for different projects; support for Active Directory Single Sign On (SSO); a system status indicator; and localisation support for many languages. It also allows Final Cut Pro X workgroups to use AFP-mounted spaces as SAN volumes, giving editors the ability to store FCP X Libraries, Events and Projects on central storage.
Flow v3.1 features enhanced metadata integration with Avid editing systems as well as proxy editing workflows for major editing systems. It supports AAF import, opening up workflow functions for Avid editors including better management of metadata created in Avid, offering a round-trip workflow; individual file restoration; and instant creation of proxy version of sequences.
In addition, IBC goers will see the latest versions of EditShare’s Geevs Studio Multicam workflow; the portable EditShare Field 2 shared storage system featuring high-performance Solid State Drives; and Lightworks running on Mac OS.
