At IBC2007, EditShare announced that it is shipping version 5.0 software with Apple Final Cut Pro (FCP) Project Sharing capabilities, support for iSCSI and a new archiving option.
Deployed first for Avid systems and editors, the EditShare Project Sharing technology provides collaborative workflow benefits by enabling multiple editors to work on the same project simultaneously. EditShare Project Sharing will let Apple FCP editors enjoy the same collaborative workflow benefits.
The new EditShare Apple FCP Project Sharing feature allows multiple Apple FCP editors to open and work on the same projects simultaneously. The Project Sharing feature is seamless, eliminating the time consuming exporting and importing of XML files and duplication of FCP project files. As with all EditShare systems, the rights management and rules-driven architecture allows administrators to pre-define user access and prevent overwrites.
The new iSCSI support allows users to have the advantages of both a SAN and a NAS simultaneously with version 5.0 EditShare systems. Users will enjoy the ease, simplicity and power of a file-level sharing NAS as well as benefit from the block-level SAN-type connectivity required for applications such as Digidesign’s Pro Tools and Avid Nitris DS systems.
