Unveiled at NAB2022 (booth N3008), EditShare’s latest enhancements include project synchronisation with NLEs – including Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro and DaVinci Resolve – and enhanced EditShare FLOW workflow tools.
The next release of the core FLOW software will include the first implementation of this integration, allowing complex projects to be readily moved between EditShare media management and the NLE environment.
According to Sunil Mudholkar, VP Product Management, EditShare, “We have always provided interoperability with the NLE editing environment, but with this latest development we eliminate manual drag and drop, ensuring project information is continually updated.”
Also added to FLOW is the ability to support the latest RAW format updates for RED and Blackmagic Design camera systems and impose LUTs in real time, both on full resolution material and on proxies. For news and sports fast turnaround editing, FLOW can now ingest NDI contribution feeds and immediately present them for editing. Meanwhile, the Helmut 4 orchestration platform from MoovIT integrates Adobe and EditShare for high pressure operations.
Content security and availability is vital to professional users, and EditShare is adding new hardware and software in this area. The EFS 60NL is a new device, aimed at nearline storage, and providing 60 drive bays in 4U of rack space. Within the EditShare environment, nearline storage is ideal for content which is needed but not being immediately worked on, ready to be transferred to the online servers with virtually no delay.
Adding to the security and sharing concept, EFS Multi-Site allows users with multiple locations to leverage built-in file acceleration to synchronise project storage between EFS clusters in different facilities. This ensures that users have ready access to content, wherever they choose to work. Cloud Sync extends the capabilities of Multi-Site to cloud storage, providing added flexibility in access as well as security in archiving. Further enhancements to the company’s cloud offering and partnership with AWS will be announced.
