EditShare has unveiled its new collaborative cloud-based virtualised video editing and storage platform – EFSv.

Initially running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure, the open EFSv platform supports third-party creative tools for editing, audio mixing, and grading with security capabilities such as file auditing.

There’s a webinar today about the solution at either 9am ET in session 1, or 7pm ET in session 2. visit  https://editshare.live/042220session1pr and https://editshare.live/042220session2pr, to register.

“Only the cloud can bring the depth of flexibility that’s essential for today’s unusual and disruptive circumstances. Overnight, the advantages offered by the cloud have changed from being ‘nice to have’ to ‘necessary,’” said Sunil Mudholkar, vice president of product management, EditShare. “We have real-world experience successfully deploying EditShare customer workflows to run in AWS and Tencent Cloud. EFSv is the culmination of these successes.

“With EFSv, there is no loss of capabilities. Everything, including project sharing, editing, and bin locking, is virtualised. Users can spin up an entire virtual facility in moments, with all the computing power they need to complete real-world projects in the cloud.”

EFSv packages include the workstation and GPU resources as well as EditShare’s Flow media management and remote production workflow tools. Flow adds a control layer to virtualised storage pools, with tools to scan, log, search, and organise media, assemble story packages, and move content between object and block tiers of storage and also between cloud and on-premise tiers.

EFSv can be bought as subscription alone or inclusive of cloud services.
