EditShareTM, the technology leader in cross platform collaborative editing and shared media storage systems, announced at IBC 2009 (stand 7.D22) compatibility for the new Apple® Final Cut® Studio release. The EditShare Complete Collaboration product line offers media acquisition, shared storage and archiving products for Broadcast, Postproduction and DI workflows. Seamlessly integrated from ingest to archive, EditShare is the only workflow solution to offer both Apple® Final Cut Pro® and Avid® project sharing for editors. "We were anticipating the most recent release of Final Cut and were adamant about providing support soon after its debut," comments Andy Liebman, president and founder, EditShare. "Many of our customers edit with Final Cut Pro and we wanted to ensure that there would be no disruption should they upgrade to the new version 7. We are very happy to announce that the new Final Cut Studio release is fully validated for use with our EditShare Complete Collaboration product line."
Thanks to EditShare's patented bin-locking / project-locking framework, Avid and Apple Final Cut Pro editors can instantly see, copy or revise the work of colleagues with the assurance that a bin, sequence or project will never get accidentally deleted or overwritten. This kind of sharing "fuels' the creative process, and is crucial for feature film editing, news editing, promo production, reality TV production, and any genre where rapid content creation is required. Via a file-manager type interface, editors can clearly see all the bins and project files being used by all editors in their group. Bins and projects belonging to other editors are automatically opened "Read Only", and control can easily be transferred from one editor to another.
