EditShare (www.editshare.com) has unveiled version 3.2 of its media asset management platform, EditShare Flow. The upgrade features scan and proxy support for 4K and image sequences, enhanced remote editing options, and new automation capabilities for transcoding and file delivery workflows.
Flow’s expanded format support means facilities like The Product Factory can better manage, preview and archive a variety of 4K formats such as ProRes 4444 XQ, Sony XAVC and RED (.R3D) files as well as “single-file-per-frame” formats including DPX, CinemaDNG, ARRIRAW, PNG and TIFF.
Enhancements to AirFlow, the Flow module that enables facilities to make media accessible through their own private cloud, allow users to batch-download both original media files or Flow proxies via a web browser from anywhere in the world, opening up new possibilities for remote collaboration and proxy workflows.
In addition to the wide-ranging format support and remote collaboration capabilities, Flow 3.2 offers new Watch Folder and FTP delivery options that will, in many cases, alleviate the need for dedicated transcoding and file delivery tools. With Flow Automation, facilities can automatically watch for all incoming file-based media that arrives at specific locations, and then transcode all new media to a single “house editing codec.”
