IBC 2014 Press Previews
The EditShare® IBC 2014 show lineup will feature the newly released EditShare Storage v7, the company’s high-performance shared storage product line with integrated media asset management capabilities from the brand new Flow v3.1 release. In addition, attendees will see the latest versions of EditShare’s end-to-end Geevs Studio Multicam workflow, the portable EditShare Field 2 shared storage system featuring high-performance Solid State Drives, and Lightworks running on the Mac OS.
EditShare v7 – Industry’s Best Performing Shared Storage
Known for its advanced project and media sharing capabilities as well as industry-leading stream counts for Avid®, Adobe® Premiere® Pro, Apple® Final Cut Pro®, Lightworks and all other major NLEs, the new EditShare v7 is built on the world’s highest-performance Linux OS. It sports a totally new and intuitive EditShare Connect interface and features a Quality of Service (QoS) system that reserves bandwidth for high-priority activities, such as real-time capture or playout, and limits the bandwidth of low-priority activities.
Other key core enhancements include a new EditShare Connect “Project Profiles” feature that remembers which spaces need to be displayed and/or mounted for different projects, support for Active Directory Single Sign On (SSO), a system status indicator, and localization support for virtually any language. EditShare Storage v7 will also allow Final Cut Pro X workgroups to use AFP-mounted spaces as SAN Volumes, giving editors the ability to store FCP X “Libraries,” “Events” and “Projects” on central storage.

Geevs Studio MC – Unlock Huge Efficiencies with EditShare’s Multi-Camera Workflow
The traditional multicam studio or live event production entails recording mixed program output from a video switcher to a VTR plus as many ISO feeds as budget allows. EditShare’s Geevs production video servers give producers an exciting new option. With its GPI trigger capabilities, Geevs captures the cutting decisions made by a video switcher and transforms them into an NLE-compatible sequence based on each camera’s ISO recordings.
As soon as recording is finished, operators can instantly play back all ISO camera angles ganged together, the sequence or both. Editors can also drag the sequence into the NLE where it shows up as a multicam timeline with editable cuts between each camera angle change. From sitcoms to music concert events, Geevs Studio MC drastically shortens the time between event and post-production by cutting out traditional reassembly time.
Lightworks for Mac
Available to the public for the first time on the Mac platform, Lightworks for Mac represents version 12 of the tri-platform editor, boasting incredible new features such as the content manager, an innovative way to manage media, edits and bins.
