The company revealed that ION Media Networks has expanded its EditShare shared media storage with the deployment of two new EditShare XStream high-performance systems. The XStream units with a total of 64TB of storage support the HD production by the ION Creative Services team. Utilizing content creation tools from Avid, Apple, and Maya, the Creative Services professionals produce on-air promotions, graphics, and branding for all of ION's company-owned stations and networks from their West Palm Beach, Florida, facility.

Designed for the industry's leading editing and compositing products from Adobe, Apple, Assimulate, Autodesk, Avid, Digidesign, Digital Vision, and Sony, EditShare storage servers, including the XStream series, enable connected workstations to capture, access, and share in real time a common pool of media files.
