The new update features content delivery to Amazon S3, batch sidecar metadata file processing, support for multi-track audio in AirFlow, and user permissions in Flow Templates. Existing Flow users with a valid EditShare maintenance agreement can download the update at www2.editshare.com/passprot/.
Delivering Content to Amazon S3
The new “Send to Amazon S3” feature in EditShare Flow automates migration of content from EditShare shared storage systems to low cost, secure offsite cloud storage, making it even easier to distribute content to collaborators, clients and other third-parties. Thanks to direct integration with Amazon storage buckets, Flow users can automate delivery of clips, sequences and full packages from their on-premise EditShare storage direct to S3 or Glacier services.

Batch Sidecar Metadata Import
Flow now supports batch import of sidecar metadata from a wide range of third-party solutions including other media asset management solutions. During a Flow Scan session, metadata contained in each of the sidecar files is automatically applied to the appropriate clip based on the metadata mappings defined by the users within Flow.
Support for Multi-track Audio in AirFlow*
Flow now includes the ability to control playback of independent stereo tracks from within the AirFlow web application, “soloing” a particular pair and muting all others during proxy clip playback. This is especially important for AirFlow customers who review content with multitrack audio, often in multiple languages, and need to hear only one language during transcription or other review and approval workflows.
*This feature is available only in select web browsers that support this HTML5 feature, including Safari, Edge, and the latest Internet Explorer (Windows only).
Support for User Permissions on Flow Templates
Ideal for large workgroups, Flow’s new user permissions capability gives administrators granular control over user access to Flow Metadata Templates. The comprehensive settings allow administrators to grant read and edit permissions across the enterprise as well as on a per-user basis, ensuring Flow Metadata Template integrity through controlled access.
