EDITSHARE SHOWCASES COMPLETE COLLABORATION PRODUCTS AT NAB 2009
New releases of the multi-channel ingest, shared storage and archiving solutions for postproduction, DI and broadcast workflows
Boston, MA – March 9, 2009 -- EditShare™, the technology leader in cross platform collaborative editing and shared media storage systems, will be exhibiting new releases from the EditShare Complete Collaboration line up of storage and workflow solutions at the NAB 2009, held in Las Vegas Nevada from April 20 to 23 on stand SL6420. The EditShare Complete Collaboration product line offers media acquisition, sharing, storage and archiving products for Postproduction, DI and Broadcast multi-editing workgroups. Seamlessly integrated from ingest to archive, the EditShare Complete Collaboration workflow is the only solution to offer both Apple and Avid project sharing for editors.
New on the NAB stand will be EditShare Flow version 1.2 demonstrating expanded codec support for the unique EditShare Universal Media File technology. EditShare Storage and XStream Series Version 5.5 will make its debut at NAB with a slew of new data protection and media management features including tighter integration with third-party playout servers. The new multi-purpose archiving and back-up solution EditShare Ark will showcase support for the entire media lifecycle through seamless integration with Flow and EditShare shared storage series.
“With EditShare servers and storage products it doesn’t matter what editing application you are using, you just log in and begin working. Apple editors can work on long projects that contain Avid media files. Avid editors can freely share with each other and other non-Avid editors. It is that simple,” comments Andy Liebman, founder and CEO, EditShare. “What makes our products different is that we take the ‘editing without barriers’ openness of our products and include features that allow users to work and manage media for specific workflows whether it be reality TV, feature film, DI, or large-scale newsrooms. It is this approach that has made EditShare technology hugely popular from the start.”

About EditShare Complete Collaboration Products
EditShare technology enables users to easily and economically share media and work collaboratively. Editors and compositors connected to an EditShare network can seamlessly access in real time a common pool of media files. Regardless of application or platform, source material, work in progress and finished packages are shared and instantly available to all users on the EditShare network. The rules-driven workflow ensures that no data is ever overwritten or accidentally destroyed.
With the unique EditShare Project Sharing, Apple and Avid editors can draw on the same central pool of media and work in the same project simultaneously, freely sharing materials and ideas.
The 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 up to four channels of media and related metadata in just about any format and simultaneously outputs to three formats, including multiple Avid and Apple formats **plus a low-resolution proxy format. 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 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.
EditShare Storage Series includes the EditShare Field mobile storage solution, EditShare Metro for small to mid-sized 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 EditShare XStream Series is designed to support high-performance post and broadcast environments. EditShare XStream can process media at data rates of 300 MB per second per stream, supporting over 100 streams of DV 50 and multiple 1080p 444 HD projects/streams. EditShare XStream is the ideal solution for post facilities working with Digital Intermediate (DI) 2K projects as well as television stations with large numbers of simultaneous users accessing central storage or employing concurrent workflows.
EditShare Ark provides integrated solutions for backups, mirroring, and archiving. 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. EditShare Ark units optimize storage costs without compromising quality or scalability.
