In addition to the roll out of the newly acquired Geevs and Lightworks systems, EditShare will be showcasing many new features for its other products in the Complete Collaboration lineup.
Multi-channel SD/HD Ingest, Log, Browse and Asset-Tracking Solution
EditShare Flow goes beyond traditional ingest solutions by incorporating key production features for optimizing the media recording and pre-edit process. Flow provides extensive ingest, logging, browse, search and asset-tracking capabilities that can enhance virtually any workflow. Unique production features include support for the industry’s only Universal Media File Technology TM enabling Avid ® and Final Cut Pro ® editors to share and edit the exact same media files and exchange sequences between the two applications – without transcoding, relinking, duplicating media or rerendering.
New Flow Feature Highlights:
• NEW Edit While Capture feature lets you begin the editing process while events are still unfolding. Flow now supports two approaches to this mission-critical feature – files that continuously expand right in your NLE timeline, and “chunking”, which produces fixed-duration clips that go seamlessly together.
• NEW File-Based Ingest offers versatile media transfer and transcoding options that support a wide range of XDCAM and P2 workflows.
• NEW Flow Projects lets producers, editors and assistants organize clips and subclips into Flow bins and Flow sequences before bringing them into the edit bay.
• New Real-time Logging and Custom Metatdata Templates standardize repetitive logging for events such as sports and reality TV productions.
• NEW Flow Scan catalogs and manages clips captured outside of Flow and stored on EditShare servers.
• NEW Avid and Final Cut Pro Sub-clip Creation lets you create subclips during or after ingest, then drag-and-drop them directly into Avid and Final Cut Pro bins.
• EditShare Asset Management lets you track assets across all EditShare systems, ensuring that metadata stays intact from ingest to archive, enabling you to quickly retrieve, produce, manage, and distribute media.
EditShare Storage Series and XStream Series
Shared Production Storage for Standard and Large User Workgroups; Digital Intermediate Workflows
EditShare shared storage solutions lets editors and compositors easily and economically share media and work collaboratively regardless of the platform or application.
Storage and XStream Series Highlights:
• Extreme performance with industry leading stream counts supporting hundreds of simultaneous users.
• Extreme scalability - EditShare’s Extreme Scalable Architecture (ESA) means that expanding your storage up to 100 or 200 Terabytes or beyond is no more complicated than purchasing additional expansion servers and plugging them into the network.

• EditShare Project Sharing lets Final Cut Pro and Avid editors draw on the same central pool of media and work in the same project simultaneously, freely sharing materials and ideas.
• No Per-Seat License removes barriers to productivity and provides faster return on investment.
• NEW OS optimizations enhance performance and serve as the new framework for introducing a slew of customer-requested workflow features.

EditShare Ark Highlights:
• Media Asset-Tracking - Archive media, bins, and sequences with metadata intact, ensuring quick searches for online and near-line tiered archives.
