Join EditShare at NAB NY 2018 | Booth # N332
Heading to NAB NY? Drop by the EditShare booth and see why so many people are talking about EditShare right now. Our EFS media engineered storage platforms are going from strength to strength as more facilities around the world adopt its ultra-efficient architecture: blazing speed balanced with key security measures. And we’ve been making the best real-time video storage even better. At NAB NY we’ll be showing several great new features, including fine-grain ACL controls and the powerful EFS File Auditing suite to track the life cycle of your media from inception to delivery. Plus it’s the first time many of you will see the all new software-defined shipping edition of Flow MAM and QScan Automated QC - winner of 'Best of Show' award at IBC 2018 - for our implementation of IMF package testing… and there’s plenty more!

EditShare EFS scale-out intelligent storage
The IABM storage champion of 2017 and 2018
Intelligent scale-out storage for mission critical production pipelines
Higher frame rates coupled with 4K and 8K sensors means there’s an exponential growth in digital assets. EditShare is making sure facilities manage this exponential surge in storage through our media aware EFS storage nodes.
The EditShare File System (EFS) has been engineered to eliminate bottlenecks. The XStream EFS storage family of products are ‘media optimised’ for superior performance in every area. Designed to work effortlessly, offering smooth collaboration with all leading creative editing/compositing and grading solutions, EFS features native drivers for Windows, Mac and Linux platforms, mitigating performance degradation compared to standard IT transactional hardware that leverages sharing protocols like SMB or NFS.
EFS provides producers with a unified and tailored media storage environment that incorporates nearline, online and archive. A robust, high performance, distributed architecture that has no single point of failure and that will never degrade in performance. EFS does away with the burden faced by many facilities of transferring large quantities of data between storage silos. EFS eliminates unplanned downtime due to file system degradation and reduces maintenance efforts to a minimum.
In traditional IT workflows that involve reading and writing data, which is the majority of processes, the issue of latency is not typically a paramount concern. If a file takes a little longer to arrive, it’s not a major issue. However, the same cannot be said for media-intensive workflows. Bandwidth demanding formats such as HDR, 4K or 8K video require very fast read and write times, with consistent high bandwidth AND extremely low latency. This is where EFS steps in to alleviate these issues.
Come see the full family of EFS solutions at NAB NY including the award winning EFS 200, 300 Enterprise class 450 platform. For DI work, we have the EFS SSD and tiered storage, the 40 NL nearline solution.
Flow Media Asset Management
Let’s Go (with the Flow)
The industry’s most comprehensive platform for media management and automated workflows for near-line, online and cloud storage. The highly sought after Flow precision toolset is now available to every storage vendor.
Having announced our intention to make Flow as a software-only revision some time ago, IBC was the launch pad to see Flow go it alone. Available now for multiple storage systems, including Avid Isis/Nexis and Amazon S3, clients who were tied to other storage vendors can now reap the rewards of using the most sought after tools such secure asset tracking, automation, our workflow management engine and Flow story which enables remote editorial.
Flow removes the complexity of media management. Flow is also cost-efficient, allowing you to scale up or scale down your Flow licenses as jobs dictate.

QScan AQC - Automated Quality Control
QScan picks up a RedShark 'Best of Show' IBC Award and is recognised for its implementation of IMF package testing.
A key reason why so many are adopting QScan is its ease of use. Its intuitive visual based timeline reporting enables users to visually see where the issue is rather than scrolling through a detailed text-based PDF ( although we give you one of those PDFs too!) It’s the industry's fastest and most affordable suite of Automated Quality Control solutions.
Now shipping with QScan Macros enabling you to build a customised template in seconds akin to a node based template, QScan will make sure your content adheres to global delivery standards. Remember, QScan ships with other favourite QC functions such as PSE and AS11 templates ratified by the DPP.
Each QScan solution is tailored to meet every production need at price points every facility can afford. EditShare has introduced a brand new mini website for QScan so you can find out more about the world of AQC or even take the software for a fully functioning 14 day test drive.

EditShare File Auditing - New for 2018
Offering peace of mind for content creators
2018 Security Product of the Year
Introducing a new way of enforcing accountability to secure your content against data theft. EditShare’s highly anticipated storage auditing capabilities - which will ship with all single node and enterprise class XStream EFS platforms - are realised through a sophisticated Auditing Dashboard. This intuitive UI will provide system administrators with a high-level view of all actions across the EFS storage pool, historic and real-time, right down to individual user and file level. The operator will be able to pinpoint who carried out an action, what files or directories were affected, and exactly when that took place. Unlike other auditing approaches, EFS auditing does not impact real-time operations or system performance. EditShare XStream EFS auditing data is easily exported to third parties and other auditing applications. Fully compliant with MPAA guidelines, EFS auditing has you covered for your security audit.
XStream EFS 40NL - nearline parking storage
There’s an important new addition to the EFS family - XStream EFS 40NL. It’s a storage node that’s intended for “parking” media that still needs to be accessible almost instantly, but which doesn’t need the extreme speed called for in the middle of a production workflow. It’s the ideal product to save material you know you’re going to need soon - but not right now. And because of this, it’s costs significantly less than production-speed storage. And yet it still has all the robustness and reliability of EFS - and it’s completely scalable.
Solutions for disaster recovery in major productions have become the norm. The requirement to back up your content to safeguard against incident is now as commonplace as archiving content. The 40NL began shipping in Q3 of 2017 and has proved to be something of a revelation - we have gone on to ship hundreds of petabytes of disaster recovery and parking storage around the globe. Get to see it in action at NAB 2018.
Geevs - next-generation ingest and playout servers
Geevs is the backbone of many facilities and broadcasters around the globe. Robust and powerful, Geevs is a workhorse, enabling you to ingest multiple HD channels of video in a variety of codecs. Our engineers are always driving to pack more punch into an ever smaller form factor. Geevs next-generation systems arrive to NAB serving up a serious performance boost. We have packed more power into the new slimline server, offering increased bandwidth with 10Gb connections, more horsepower with a new multi-threaded CPU, hardware RAID as standard, more RAM and increased storage options. Furthermore, Geevs can connect directly up to Flow for Baseband, ideal for sports, PCR (production control room) and Reality TV programming.
