EFS scale-out intelligent storage
The XStream EFS storage family of products are ‘media optimised’ for superior performance in every area. Offering smooth collaboration with all leading creative editing/compositing and grading solutions, EFS features native drivers for Windows, Mac and Linux platforms, mitigating performance degradation compared to standard IT transactional hardware that leverages sharing protocols like SMB or NFS.
New capabilities for XStream EFS storage solutions place emphasis on industry-leading initiatives for security and accountability. EditShare’s EFS XStream Auditing dashboard is the industry’s first purpose-built scale-out storage solution with auditing designed for the media and entertainment market and is designed to deter cyber criminals by providing system administrators with a complete digital footprint of all file interactions.
In addition, EditShare announced at NAB 2018 that XStream EFS shared storage solutions will now feature ACL Media Spaces for fine-grained user controls as well as enhanced storage space utilization reporting.
Flow Media Asset Management: Now Storage Independent
The new software-defined Flow, which is now available, has been completely re-engineered for non-EditShare storage environments such as Avid NEXIS, StorageDNA and Amazon S3. Bringing critical search, browse, and retrieve capabilities as well as tools to assemble media to static media storage, the new software-defined MAM platform maximizes the value of customers’ existing storage infrastructure by adding an intelligent media management layer that can manage millions of assets across multiple storage tiers in different locations.
QScan Automated Quality Control: New IMF Testing Capabilities
Awarded ‘Best of Show’ by RedShark News at IBC2018 for its implementation of IMF package testing, EditShare will show its new QScan Automated Quality Control (AQC) family of products, powered by the award-winning QUALES QC engine. An important industry initiative, the Interoperable Mastering Format (IMF) aims to solve the pain points of mass international file delivery, allowing facilities to meet the growing demand for content all over the world. Key to the initiative, and especially important for OTT content providers, is that packages are properly run through QC prior to delivery. QScan detects the existence of the corresponding XML files (CPL, PKL, OPL, AssetMap, Volume Index) reading the contents and providing information about the structure of the entire IMF package (IMPs), identifying any errors that may be present. The intuitive timeline view of the CPL, where all essence files are described, helps users better understand the structure of IMP.
