EditShare celebrates anniversaries at CABSAT with innovations, integrations and implementations

EditShare, the technology leader that enables storytellers to create and manage collaborative workflows at every stage from storyboard to screening, is celebrating its 20th and CABSAT’s 30th anniversaries by bringing its latest remarkable advances to the MENA region (stand S1-E20, Dubai World Trade Centre, 21 – 23 May). Visitors will see the breadth of coherent solutions from EditShare, bringing benefits beyond storage, from storyboard to screen.

EFS, the EditShare media storage architecture, has now been boosted with the addition of EFS NVMe, adding the high performance, high bandwidth solid state technology as another building block. For demanding creative applications – like DPX, OpenEXR, 4k, 8k and beyond – NVMe provides throughput three times faster than previous generation SSD servers, while still being integrated with and managed by the overall EFS environment, including traditional servers, nearline storage, archives and the cloud.

MediaSilo, the popular tool for sharing work in progress, sees enhanced review functionality, including side-by-side version comparisons, and more facilities for making, tracking and acknowledging comments and sign-offs. To provide protection when sharing review material, MediaSilo incorporates visible and forensic watermarking, dynamically inserting customizable viewer information into the file. The result is a secure but effective way of distributing all assets, including scripts, casting shots and marketing materials as well as content.

Improved security, along with more branding customization and in-video logo watermarks are also among the enhancements for Screeners.com, the preferred press screener widely used by major studios and production companies worldwide. Reviewers will see an enhanced OTT-style experience, with improved content recommendations, watchlists and expiry notifications.

“It’s great to be able to share major milestones with CABSAT: our 20th, the event’s 30th,” said Vincent Eade, RVP sales EMEA at EditShare. “Our goal has always been on freeing creators so they can concentrate on making great content, we do this by providing the storage and workflow tools they need along with a secure way of collaborating on projects and sharing material, all the way from ingest to screen.”

“I’ve had the privilege of attending CABSAT many times,” Eade continued, “and I know that it is a great opportunity to have detailed, positive conversations with the industry. That helps us set our own development plans, so we can deliver even better solutions in the future.”

EditShare staff will be on hand at CABSAT to talk about all of the latest enhancements, find out more on stand S1-E20 at CABSAT, or visit www.editshare.com
