EditShare Jumps Into The Game With Ubisoft Montr and eacute;al

EditShare® a technology leader in intelligent scale-out storage, AQC and media management solutions, is helping UbiSoft Montreal meet the demands of live capture, editing and real-time playback of up to 4K content with its enterprise EditShare XStream EFS 450 shared storage solutions and integrated EditShare Geevs video servers which support up to 4 concurrent ingest and playout streams. “We have a different set up from the typical capture or montage studio. First, our montage studio is larger than the average. With over 3,500 people on staff, we have a lot of different connections and workflow demands,” says Michel Forbes, System Administrator, Ubisoft Montreal. “One of the key workflows is live capture, edit and real-time video playback. This is the defacto workflow for many teams; the complexity of managing such a large operation and heavy project load requires a high degree of organization and system performance. We researched the options and found EditShare to be versatile enough to meet the requirements with the performance necessary to support the nuances and needs of these demanding productions.”
