EditShare (http://www.editshare.com) will unveil the new Energy shared storage product line at the NAB 2011 exhibition (Booth SL4728) next week.
Designed for small and mid-size production workgroups, the new ‘Energy’ Series provides outstanding speed and agility with over 700MB per second, read and write performance per server or expansion chassis, says Andy Liebman, founder and CEO of EditShare. The new EditShare Energy Series offers the full range of EditShare innovation including Final Cut Pro and Avid project sharing.
Project sharing lets editors draw on the same central pool of media and work in the same project simultaneously — sharing raw material, bins and sequences. There’s no per-seat license; media-optimized Gigabit and 10-Gigabit Ethernet connections support workgroups and high stream counts with simplicity and cost-effectiveness, says Liebman.
EditShare shared storage systems support a wide range of resolutions from DV25 up to full 2K DPX. Energy facilitates real-time media sharing for users of Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, Avid DS, 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 up to 40 drives per system. In addition, through EditShare’s Extreme Scalable Architecture (ESA) technology, multiple Energy servers can be put together along with XStream or Metro servers to create an-expandable managed storage network.
