EditShare supports Macs
this week announced support for Macintosh-based Avid systems, including Avid Xpress DV, Avid Xpress Pro and Avid Media Composer Adrenaline on the Macintosh platform. The company also announced that its network-based central storage system offers new project sharing functionality, improved 10 gigabit Ethernet networking, integration of instant messaging within EditShare, and improved support for third-party play-out servers. EditShare now supports uncompressed SD on the Macintosh as well as allows Mac and PC-based Avid editing systems to share media files. It also features customized networking client technology to ensure cross platform collaborative editing.
The EditShare system can store audio and video media files in a central networked location, allowing all connected workstations to create and access a common pool of media files, while guaranteeing that individual workstations never interfere with--or accidentally erase the files of--other workstations on the network. Designed as an affordable solution for collaborative editing, it works with Avid Xpress DV and Xpress Pro, Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro and Canopus Edius.
