EditShare (http://www.editshare.com), which specializes in cross
platform collaborative editing and shared media storage systems, has
announced compatibility for Mac OS X 10.6 (“Snow Leopard”). The
EditShare multi-channel ingest, shared storage and archiving
solutions offer special project sharing capabilities for broadcast,
postproduction and DI editing workgroups.
Thanks to EditShare’s patented bin-locking/project-locking framework,
Mac-based editors using Apple Final Cut Pro and Avid editing
applications can see, copy or revise the work of colleagues with the
assurance that a bin, sequence or project will never get accidentally
deleted or overwritten, according to Andy Liebman, president and
founder, EditShare. Via a file-manager type interface, editors can
see all the bins and project files being used by all editors in their
group. Bins and projects belonging to other editors are automatically
opened as “Read Only,” and control can easily be transferred from one
editor to another.
EditShare customers moving to Mac OS X Snow Leopard will need to
upgrade their DAVE software to version 8. EditShare customers who
purchased DAVE after Aug. 1, 2009, are entitled to a free upgrade to
version 8. All other EditShare customers can upgrade for US$59.
EditShare shared storage solutions, — EditShare Storage Series and
EditShare XStream Series — enable editing workgroups to work
collaboratively regardless of the platform or application. Users
connected to an EditShare network can access in real time a common
pool of media files. Source material, work in progress and finished
packages are shared and instantly available to all users on the
EditShare Flow and EditShare Ark bookend the shared production
storage workflows with multi-channel ingest/browse and
archiving/backup capabilities. The integrated solutions provide a
scalable, end-to-end media management workflow.
