Issue: IBC 2007 - Day 2


AMSTERDAM – At the IBC show, here, EditShare ( is demonstrating Version 5.0 of its file sharing workflow solution. The latest version includes an enhanced file management structure that greatly simplifies file sharing workflow and media maintenance, particularly for Avid users. A new synchronization tool enables media back ups on a second EditShare server as well as dual location media housing. And Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) integration has been added for optimizing productivity and increased throughput.

Also new is support for Apple’s Final Cut Pro, expanding the tool beyond that of an Avid-only workflow. The EditShare Apple FCP Project Sharing feature allows multiple FCP editors to simultaneously open up and work from the same projects. Project Sharing is seamless, eliminating the time consuming exporting and importing of XML files and duplication of FCP project files. New iSCSI support allows customers to simultaneously have the advantages of both a SAN and a NAS, giving them the simplicity and power of a file-level sharing NAS as well as benefit from the block-level SAN-type connectivity required for applications such as Digidesign’s Pro Tools and Avid Nitris DS systems.

EditShare is also showing EditShare Field at IBC. The release incorporates all of the features and functionality of the flagship EditShare product, packaged it into a portable, rugged chassis.
