“Facilities and media organizations are not only facing a big technology shift with 4K/UHD, they are also faced with changing how they manage their productions. The ‘work and deliver 4K anywhere’ is fast becoming a must for most businesses, and EditShare has solutions to answer both needs,” comments Peter Lambert, sales director for EditShare Asia Pacific. “EditShare’s XStream EFS storage and Flow media asset management are engineered to ease complex transitions into key 4K/UHD and multi-location, multi-team production workflows that are affecting media facilities of all sizes around the world today.”

Soo will present how moving to EditShare’s collaborative solutions have enhanced his production and business at the Broadcast Asia 2016 Post|Production Hub conference on 2 June, 15.00 hrs.
XStream EFS – High-Performance Shared Storage Platform for 4K
Since its launch at NAB 2015 last year, the XStream EFS high availability shared storage solution has become the core storage platform of choice for many of the world’s most successful facilities and productions. Powerful, easy to manage, highly reliable, vastly scalable (5PB+) and incredibly affordable, XStream EFS online media storage can cope with exploding media volumes, ultra-high data rates, and the complexities of today’s collaborative production workflows. With the latest Native Client support delivering significantly improved performance for Windows, OS X and Linux users, EFS is the only storage platform to combine efficiency, high bandwidth and extensive fault-tolerance (metadata, media data and hardware redundancy).
Building on the performance of the proven EFS architecture and file system, EditShare has released XStream EFS SSD, a powerful, scalable shared storage solution engineered for the extreme bandwidth requirements of uncompressed 4K and HD post-production as well as Digital Intermediate (DI), VFX and finishing projects. The new product extends the award-winning EditShare EFS platform by combining Solid State Drives (SSD) with a new architecture that scales from a budget-friendly 8TB all the way up to 5PB+.
EditShare Flow – Managing Media for Collaborative Remote Workflows
As productions become ever more complex, EditShare understands that facilities need an asset management platform that can be scaled to facilitate in-house and remote media sharing scenarios. Available for EditShare and third-party storage solutions, EditShare Flow MAM contains a range of applications, providing media ingest, key asset tracking, transcoding and automation capabilities. The latest release features updated codec support including Apple ProRes and 4K-centric codecs such as Sony XAVC and OpenEXR, further enhancing production workflow support. Now with the web-based application AirFlow, EditShare has also made it easy and secure for production teams to take that first step into a “cloud” environment for remote and collaborative workflows. AirFlow utilizes on-premise storage already used for high bandwidth workflows to provide secure and cost-efficient access to media from anywhere in the world via a basic Internet connection and standard web browser. No need to pay extra for cloud services or waste valuable time uploading content to an external location such as Amazon or Google.
Brand new to the Flow module lineup, Flow Story is the first in a new generation of content creation applications for collaborative and remote workflows. With a heritage steeped in non-linear editing and end-to-end video workflows for broadcast and media, EditShare has utilized the engine of the award-winning Lightworks editor to create a powerful and intuitive editorial application. Ideal for fast turnaround projects including editorial, reality TV, news and sports, Flow Story provides users the ability to package content for finishing, delivery and playout.
Moving Bits – A Client’s Perspective
Award-winning director Jay Soo, who leads the cutting edge production and editorial boutique Moving Bits, is known for creating commercial hits for global brands like Universal Studios Singapore and Hilton Worldwide as well as landmark documentaries (Chilean Mine Rescue) for the world-renowned Smithsonian group. Soo will present how moving his production infrastructure to a collaborative workflow has transformed his operation and business. The presentation will take place at the BroadcastAsia2016 Post|Production Hub conference on 2 June at 15.00 hrs.
