At IBC2007, EditShare will debut the addition of Final Cut Pro project sharing to the EditShare Projects collaborative workflow shared storage solution that supports both Apple and Avid editing systems. Seamless project sharing eliminates the exporting and importing of XML files and duplication of Final Cut Pro project files.

EditShare systems feature rights management and rules-driven architecture that lets administrators pre-define user access and prevent overwrites. An assistant editor for example, can digitize clips and organize into subclips while the senior editor simultaneously reviews the material. Journalists can assemble stories as the promo editor reviews the packages in progress to extract clips and sound bites. Reality show editors can share the same master clips and subclips without duplicating media files or projects.

The new EditShare 5.0 release adds such enhancements as plug-and-play, a streamlined file management structure, and daily “health” reports on server activity, a read-only option, a maintenance mode for deleting and modifying files, and improved Shared Avid Projects with warnings that other user’s bins are locked.

The EditShare open shared storage architecture leverages gigabit Ethernet to enable seamless, real-time media sharing among Avid, Apple, Adobe, Autodesk, Boris FX, Canopus, Digidesign, Media 100, and Sony editors and compositors. Multiple editors can write to the same volume simultaneously, yet the rules-driven workflow ensures that no data is ever overwritten or accidentally destroyed.

EditShare will be in Stand 7.130.
