Remote Editing with Flow Story
The first content creation application for collaborative and remote workflows
EditShare has utilized the engine of the award-winning Lightworks editor to create the powerful and intuitive editorial application EditShare Flow Story, aimed at fast turnaround environments such as editorial, reality TV, news and sports. Unlike traditional NLEs, Flow Story provides remote and secure access to on-premise stored media directly through any Internet connection. With unique finishing tools including integration with Audio Network, which allows users to browse and add MP3 audio files directly to their sequence, Flow Story provides users the ability to package content for finishing, delivery or playout. See the EditShare Flow Story video here.
Migrating to 4K/UHD with XStream EFS
Options for storage infrastructure roll out to support high bandwidth demands
Announced at NAB 2016 and shown for the first time at IBC, the new XStream EFS SSD comes in 8TB, 16TB and 24TB chassis configurations, scaling from single servers to multi-node clusters capable of providing many PBs of capacity. All configurations feature an easy-to-manage single global namespace; storage capacity that can be upgraded at any time; and Native Client connections that offer vastly improved performance and availability when compared to SMB and AFP network protocols. The new XStream EFS SSD system also seamlessly integrates with the Flow MAM and Flow modules, allowing users to log, track, search and retrieve 4K/UHD assets and metadata across media spaces.

New Third-Party Integrations: Aspera File Transfer, Interra Systems and Vidcheck QC
Expanding Flow workflow options with third-party integrations
A commitment to an open platform, EditShare has added support for Aspera’s FASP accelerated transfer technology and seamless integration with leading QC solutions from Interra Systems and Vidcheck.
For customers using Aspera’s FASP technology, the enhanced Flow workflow initiates, controls and monitors transfers of assets between local and remote Aspera servers. This new capability can be automated for any workflow through the Flow Automation module.
Shown at IBC2016, the enhanced Flow QC workflow triggers and tracks QC processes with capabilities to automate “next-step” tasks based on (pass/fail) QC verification reports. QC reports can also be stored in the Flow database as PDFs for fast and easy reference. Visit editshare.com/products/flow to learn more about EditShare Flow.
