Providing a 4K backbone

EditShare is highlighting its ability to manage 4K resolution productions with its collaborative workflow platform.

The company emphasised that it has aimed to maintain the integrity of all media, whether ProRes 4444 XQ, Sony XAVC or RED (.R3D) files, or single-file-per-frame formats such as DPX, CinemaDNG, ARRIRAW, PNG or TIFF, throughout the entire production pipeline.

Its production asset management system, Flow, provides integrated production and automation tools that let facilities tag and index content and automate tasks such as transcoding and media migration from one XStream media space to another. The new Flow Watch Folder, distributed transcoding and FTP delivery options alleviate the need for third-party transcoding and file delivery tools. With the AirFlow web client, remote users can access media on an XStream shared storage system.

EditShare related that the final piece to make this platform the backbone to a high-resolution workflow is integration with EditShare Ark. It said editors can search the Flow database, which contains proxies for all archived assets, and migrate the original content back onto the main online XStream storage, regardless of if the content is stored nearline in Ark Disk or offline in Ark Tape.
