Industry First -
creates one file for use in both Avid and Final Cut systems Boston, MA â€“ June 11, 2008 -
â„¢ the technology leader in cross platform collaborative editing and shared media storage systems has introduced new technology that creates a single media file which can be used in both Avid and Final Cut Pro editing environments. The Universal Mediaâ„¢ File technology works in conjunction with EditShareâ€™s Flow Ingest, the only multi-channel acquisition solution that captures in one format and simultaneously outputs to multiple formats. The Universal Media File adds a new dimension to shared workflow situations, allowing media to easily be shared and used by editors working on both Avid and Final Cut Pro systems. Thereâ€™s no need to tie-up ingest channels or create multiple files of the same media for use on different systems. â€œThe user has a choice of codecs and you can capture a single file and open that same file in both Avid and Final Cut Pro,â€? explains Andy Liebman, President and founder of EditShare. â€œItâ€™s really a first and the user doesnâ€™t have to do anything complex. In the interface to our ingest server you just select the universal file for that codec and itâ€™s done. The data remains pristine; none of the file data is compromised. This offers a great advantage and time-savings to any operation that wants the flexibility to work in a mixed editing environment.â€? Files produced in DV25, DV50, DVCPRO HD can be ingested as universal media files in EditShare. Additional formats such as IMX will be included in the future.
Complete Collaboration - EditShare Flow
The Universal Media File technology is included with
Flow, part of the companyâ€™s Complete Collaboration product line that provide a unified workflow solution for ingest, logging and browsing without requiring an Avid or Final Cut workstation.
Flow Ingest enables media capture in one format with simultaneous outputs to multiple formats including Apple Pro Res, and Avid, MXF, as well as low proxy formats. Feature highlights 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.
Flow Browse simplifies and accelerates media searches within the
storage environment. Users can quickly locate media among hundreds of thousands of clips.
Flow Browse supports proxy viewing outside the nonlinear editing application for optimal viewing on the
Media Space, annotation of metadata forms, and the ability to drag and drop media into an Avid or Final Cut Pro bin.
