Complete Collaboration - EditShare Flow

The new EditShare Flow series offers two distinct packages - Flow Ingest and Flow Browse - that integrate seamlessly with the EditShare Storage, XStream and Ark solutions. EditShare Flow Ingest is the only acquisition solution that captures in just about any format and simultaneously outputs to just about any format including Apple, Avid and low proxy formats. No transcoding is required; files are immediately available. Features include multi-channel ingest with independent control over each channel, full metadata capture, and edit-while-recording capabilities. Users can automate ingest, control ingest remotely or initiate it manually. EditShare Flow Ingest supports Apple Pro Res, Avid MXF formats and up to three codecs per channel including proxy. EditShare Flow Browse simplifies and accelerates media searches within the EditShare storage environment. Users can quickly locate media among hundreds of thousands of clips. EditShare Flow Browse supports proxy viewing outside the nonlinear editing application for optimal viewing on the EditShare Media Space, annotation of metadata forms, and the ability to drag and drop media into an Avid or Final Cut Pro bin.

Complete Collaboration – EditShare Storage and XStream Series

EditShare Storage Series includes the EditShare Field mobile storage solution, EditShare Metro for small to mid-size editing workgroups and EditShare scalable Rack Units. In addition to the legendary Apple and Avid project sharing capabilities, the storage series offers automated diagnostic tools and the industry’s most efficient back office data processing policies and administration. The new EditShare XStream Series is designed to support high performance post and broadcast environments. EditShare XStream can process media at data rates of 300MB per second per stream, supporting up to 52 streams of DV50 and multiple 1080p 444 HD projects/streams. This makes it the perfect solution for post facilities working with Digital Intermediary (DI) 2k projects as well as television stations with large numbers of simultaneous users accessing central storage or employing concurrent workflows.

Complete Collaboration – EditShare Ark

These essential security features let users economically organize and manage media in a variety of scenarios, including LTO-backup and “spinning disc� solutions that can be upgraded to full EditShare Server Series with little to no downtime.
