What is EditShare shared storage?
Shared storage allows students to collaborate and save all their media together into a single location giving you greater management and control over the content. EditShare Media Space allows students to login from any editing workstation on the campus network, ensuring a more efficient use of equipment resources, while our innovative project sharing features let instructors and students review work together.
Students can work away, for example, on the Adobe Creative Suite bundle and save all their projects and assets securely on the shared storage platform. Instructors can review their work from any location and offer student feedback. This removes the risk of using third-party USB drives, keyrings etc. which can introduce viruses to the network. By using a central storage platform, media is centrally located, stored and secured.
Can I use EditShare shared storage within my current workspace?
We understand that different colleges and universities use different editing platforms, that's why we are proud to say that EditShare is platform agnostic, meaning we work seamlessly with industry-standard third-party platforms, including Apple, Adobe and Avid, as well as our own Emmy award-winning Hollywood blockbuster editing platform, Lightworks, the world's first Windows, Mac and Linux editing platform. Available free from lwks.com.
