EditShare has updated its FLOW media asset management (MAM) and EFS shared storage systems. The new release enhances availability and redundancy in FLOW to improve system performance and uptime from ingest to archive. The FLOW platform also gains new Adobe Premiere Pro and DaVinci Resolve panel capabilities and proxy support for users working remotely. Time-saving EFS administrative features include smart shortcuts, system transparency and automation.
FLOW’s availability is increased by giving its central database multiple points of redundancy to mitigate against hardware or network failures that would affect MAM client accessibility during active productions. In a similar style, FLOW’s services are scalable and presented as multi-instance, redundant elements within the overall system.
EditShare’s NLE panel integrations place FLOW directly into Premiere Pro and DaVinci Resolves user interfaces so that users can access FLOW’s asset management without leaving the NLE environment. Users can now exchange FLOW sequences directly with Adobe Premiere Pro and Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve using the new FLOW Cuts List sequence import function.
Sequence metadata in the AirFLOW interface.
Extended Metadata support allows users to add metadata information to sequences, including custom fields, which can improve and enrich metadata associated with sequences. AirFLOW now shows sequence metadata in its user interface. Its improved media relinking logic automatically imports and relinks high resolution source footage located within a project’s folder structure after completion of a proxy edit.
As well as standard streaming proxies, FLOW can now generate high quality ProRes Proxy and H.264 files. This simplifies relinking to complex clips with multichannel audio track layout in remote workflow scenarios. FLOW now supports the latest version of DNA Evolution by Storage DNA. Users can archive and restore FLOW assets from third-party LTO/LTFS and disk-based tiers.
EditShare is aiming to develop better web-based user experiences to users through the use of in-app guides and feedback messaging capabilities. As the company develops more features for the browser-based experience, the aim is to guide these users to the new capabilities and ask for feedback directly within EFS Control and FLOW.
Also, EditShare Telemetry has been designed for administrators to share Audit and Monitor data with EditShare’s secure network operations centre. Through Telemetry, EditShare can work with customers to maintain optimal operations through pro-active monitoring and event alerting. Users can participate in the trial program for this service by contacting EditShare technical support.
The EFS Control Maintenance Mode incorporates new controls allowing maintenance users to manage files in certain media spaces, while restricting other users to read-only access. Active Directory Single Sign On (ADSSO) has updates improving enterprise-level user management. editshare.com
