EditShare will be promoting several key themes including important media and entertainment initiatives around content security and compliance, highly sought performance capabilities that vastly improve production and post-production workflows, and content repurposing at the upcoming IBC2018 exhibition.
Secure, Real-time 4K, 8K, and Beyond Enterprise Storage Video Playback
In addition to the new XStream EFS File Auditing technology, advanced content security capabilities that mitigate cyber attacks and content theft, EditShare will be showing in-demand real-time 4K, 8K and beyond EFS scale out storage video playback. A unique capability for enterprise storage performance, XStream EFS delivers the best of both worlds in terms of IT and media performance.
The XStream EFS scale-out shared storage solution product family includes the single-node EFS 200and EFS 300 solutions for small to mid-size facilities, multi-node XStream EFS 450 solutions for enterprise workflows and the SSD-based EFS storage node options for clients requiring ultimate high-resolution real-time playback. For those facilities who have online storage space as a premium, the EFS 40NL parking storage nodes are designed to optimise content use by allowing them to park content whilst not in use.
Automated QC for IMF Testing
EditShare will show its support for IMF in its new QScan Automated Quality Control (AQC) family of products, powered by the award-winning QUALES QC engine. An important industry initiative, the Interoperable Mastering Format, known as IMF, aims to solve the pain points of mass international file delivery, allowing facilities to meet the growing demand for content all over the world.
Key to the initiative, and especially important for OTT content providers, is that packages are properly run through QC prior to delivery. QScan detects the existence of the corresponding XML files (CPL, PKL, OPL, AssetMap, Volume Index) reading the contents and providing information about the structure of the entire IMF package (IMPs), identifying any errors that may be present. The intuitive timeline view of the CPL, where all essence files are described, helps users better understand the structure of IMP.
Smarter Storage with Flow – Now in Public Beta
The new software-defined Flow, which is now in public beta, has been completely re-engineered for non-EditShare storage environments such as Avid NEXIS, StorageDNA and Amazon S3. Bringing critical search, browse, and retrieve capabilities as well as tools to assemble media to static media storage, the new software-defined MAM platform maximizes the value of customers’ existing storage infrastructure by adding an intelligent media management layer that can manage millions of assets across multiple storage tiers in different locations.
