Thomson announces Aurora Craft editing system

The new Thomson Grass Valley Aurora Craft edit system brings the creative freedom of its EDIUS craft system to the arena of shared storage environments and collaborative workflows.

Aurora Craft also offers all of the valuable file-based production tools used by news editors within the Thomson Grass Valley Aurora Edit platform.

This new capability for users already familiar with the EDIUS product family and craft editors in general allows large news departments and media production companies to expand their editing and content creation capabilities incrementally or all at once, while continuing to work on the same platform. This enables media companies to cost-effectively develop mixed-editing environments, closely tailored to specific requirements. Aurora Craft does this without affecting any other existing client on the network.

Aurora Craft offers tapeless workgroups complete quality of service and bandwidth protection against bottlenecks while giving each user unfettered deterministic access to materials.
