EditShare Flow Solution Integrates Aspera FASP

EditShare flow with aspera for seamless content ingest and delivery

With ever-growing production demands and the associated increase in media assets and users required to access them, every production project needs a sophisticated management toolset. With its heritage in shared storage solutions for broadcast and media, EditShare has uniquely positioned itself to understand these requirements with its Flow media asset management platform, which is at the heart of many of the world’s leading production facilities workflows.

Flow provides a powerful media asset management platform for creative control of all files during the production process including 4K and remote editorial workflows. Flow tags, organizes, and manages your media to improve efficiency and multiply productivity, including the ability to automate complex and repetitive workflow tasks including transcoding.

EditShare has partnered with Aspera to tightly integrate the patented Aspera FASP® technology into its Flow Automation solution. This ensures the fastest and most reliable performance of time critical workflows that include the ingest and delivery of large high resolution media content to or from disparate locations across countries and continents.  Flow users can now access and distribute all their high resolution content at line speed over any distance using their existing WAN. This joint solution allows organizations to maximize the use of EditShare’s comprehensive MAM toolset for multi-site workflows.

Joint Feature Highlights:

  • Aspera FASP is deeply integrated with EditShare Flow at the API level to seamlessly acquire and deliver content
  • Quickly and easily navigate, find, preview, and import HD and Ultra HD content into your workflow and then deliver it at maximum speed over global WANs. 

Description

EditShare’s Flow MAM solution provides a powerful suite of applications for creative control of your content during the production process, including remote editorial workflows. With the integration of Aspera FASP®, you can manage and track media and non-media assets on your storage, from ingest to archive anywhere in the world at maximum speed, improving productivity and efficiency at every stage.

Flow creates a truly collaborative environment using Aspera FASP by providing fast and easy access to content for all users, no-matter where they are, with real-time synchronization of metadata. Flow’s powerful pre-editing, logging and search capabilities allow parts of the production and post-production process to be moved out of the edit suite, offering wider access to content and a more flexible use of resources.

With an automation engine that includes Aspera as part of the platform, Flow helps reduce the need to perform repetitive or complex tasks, enabling faster turnaround times with tasks such as transcoding and content delivery.

From assistants and editors, to directors and producers, Flow provides a comprehensive set of tools to enable a more collaborative experience on any production. Let Flow manage your assets and provide you with a true platform for collaboration, freeing up valuable creative time to make better content.
