EditShare Introduces Mid-range Shared Storage Solution


EditShare is debuting the new, high-performance Energy shared storage product line designed for small and mid-size production workgroups during the NAB 2011 exhibition (Booth SL4728).


The new Energy Series provides speed and agility with more than 700MB per second, read and write performance per server or expansion chassis.


"EditShare first exhibited inLas Vegas eight years ago offering a single 2TB shared storage system," says Andy Liebman, founder and CEO of EditShare. "This year, we showcase a robust tiered storage environment featuring the brand new price-busting Energy Series along with XStream, our highest performing shared storage solution, which can scale to petabytes. We have always been about giving customers tremendous value and our new mid-range Energy models out-perform comparable solutions like Avid ISIS 5000 at a price point that is significantly more attractive."


The new EditShare Energy Series offers the full range of EditShare products, including Avid and Final Cut Pro project sharing. Project sharing lets editors draw on the same central pool of media and work in the same project simultaneously freely and safely sharing raw material, bins, and sequences. No per-seat license and media-optimized Gigabit and10-Gigabit Ethernet connections support workgroups and high stream counts with simplicity and cost-effectiveness.


Outperforming its competitors, the new mid-range Energy Series has a benchmarked performance of 700MB/s per 16-drive for a 3U system.


EditShare shared storage systems support a wide range of resolutions from DV25 up to full 2K DPX.


EditShare Energy is the only mid-range shared storage solution to offer advanced project sharing with sequence and bin locking for Avid, Apple FCP, and Lightworks editors.


Energy facilitates real-time media sharing for users of Avid Media Composer, Avid DS, Final Cut Pro, Lightworks, Adobe Premiere, Adobe After Effects, EDIUS, Smoke, Resolve, Digital Vision, and more.


One SAS expansion chassis can be added to all Energy systems, allowing upto 40 drives per system. In addition, through EditShare's Extreme ScalableArchitecture (ESA) technology, multiple Energy servers can be put togetheralong with XStream or Metro servers to create an infinitely-expandable managed storage network.


When combined with any Flow product, EditShare storage gives Universal MediaFile support, allowing Avid and Final Cut Pro editors to share and edit the exact same media files and exchange sequences between the two applications ­without any transcoding, relinking, duplicating media, or re-rendering.


Media-optimized Gigabit and 10-Gigabit Ethernet connections support large stream counts and are cost-effective.
