The new Geevs v7 video server for post, broadcast and sports is having its first showing at BVE 2015. It shares stand space with the latest version of the company’s EditShare shared storage platform, which is integrated with new Flow 3.2 media asset management and the latest version of the Ark archive and backup system offering scalable nearline disk and LTO archives. Also on display is the portable EditShare Field 2 shared storage system featuring high-performance solid state drives.
Included across all EditShare storage solutions, the company said its latest EditShare v7 application maximises media sharing capabilities for NLE workgroups. It offers advanced project sharing and stream counts for major NLEs like Media Composer, Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, and Lightworks. EditShare v7 intelligently reserves bandwidth for high-priority activities, such as real-time capture or playout, and limits the bandwidth of low-priority activities.
The latest Flow v3.2 MAM platform adds support for 4K codecs, offers file upload/download capabilities that expand remote collaboration, as well as new, fully-automated transcoding and delivery options.
Geevs has had a long history within a wide range of demanding workflows, including complex newsroom integration, live sports with instant replay, and multi-camera studio ingest.
The Geevs v7 release includes a raft of feature updates, including single client control of multi-server playback and recording, and Flow MAM platform integration. This release also includes dedicated tools for Geevs Sports, Geevs Studio MC and Geevs Live, providing functionality to fine-tune broadcast or production workflows.
The portable shared storage system Field 2 now supports SSDs, offering users up to six-times the performance of enterprise-class 7200 RPM drives. Intended for on-location shoots, ENG trucks and remote offices, the turnkey Field 2 platform features Flow media asset management and file ingest, advanced project sharing and bin locking, as well as archiving capabilities, in an all-in-one rugged chassis.
