EditShare (http://www.editshare.com) is unveiling a new tapeless workflow solution for multi-camera TV productions at this week’s NAB 2011 (Booth SL4728).
Andy Liebman, founder and CEO, EditShare, says that by integrating all its product lines, EditShare has provided an end-to-end production workflow for managing multi-camera productions. Geevs (ingest/playout), Flow (asset management), and Ark (archiving) manage the creation and movement of media across the production workflow with EditShare XStream (shared storage system) at the core managing central storage and content access.
Geevs captures multiple channels of HD video in any codec — including Apple ProRes, Avid DNxHD, DVCPro HD, AVD-intra or XDCAM — and records files directly to EditShare’s shared storage systems, as well as to local storage for redundancy. Geevs also automatically generates proxy files for viewing in Flow over a standard Gigabit network.
The lighting director, dialogue coach, legal or continuity person, etc., view the raw rushes immediately from any standard desktop system connected to the EditShare network; no dubs or transcoding are needed. Assistants and editors use Flow to get a jumpstart on production: to log media, make rough cuts, and drag the clips directly into any NLE.
Users can also take the tally output feed from a video switcher to get an NLE sequence of what they’re shooting. The sequence can be viewed in Flow as if it were the output feed from the switcher dragged directly into the NLE.
