EditShare XStream EFS on the Open Road Posted: 09/06/2017

Open Road Entertainment is a powerhouse broadcast and theatrical marketing company based in Burbank, California. At any given time, the rapidly growing facility has 40 to 50 different projects in motion, and with that frenetic creative activity comes significant technical complexities. Our base content, which includes video, audio, graphics and text, is delivered by different clients in different formats, which can be challenging to manage. In addition, we are transitioning from Final Cut Pro to Avid Media Composer, so we were doing a lot of transcoding for both system imports and sometimes for the exchange between the two NLEs, comments Ryan Egan, post-production manager, Open Road Entertainment. We were also constantly trying to keep the storage balanced and in check. Smaller projects are typically around 500 gigs of media, while larger projects can get upwards of 15 terabytes, depending on what comes in.
