Enhancements in EditShare Version 5.0
EditShare version 5.0 delivers vastly improved workflows with simplified administration and expanded capabilities.   The addition of Apple Final Cut Pro (FCP) Project Sharing capabilities is included in this version.  Deployed first for Avid systems and editors, the widely popular EditShare Project Sharing technology provides tremendous collaborative workflow benefits by enabling multiple editors to work on the same project simultaneously. EditShare is the only collaborative workflow and shared storage solution to offer project sharing for Apple FCP and Avid editing systems.
New administration features and functions in version 5.0 allow EditShare administrators to synchronize two or more servers regardless of geographic location, receive daily “health” reports detailing server activity, and minimize time to deploy with a new “plug and play” configuration.


 EditShare 5.0 feature highlights include:
•Full Project Sharing for both Avid and Final Cut Pro – allows multiple editors to simultaneously work within the same projects
•Improved Shared Avid Projects: See warnings that other user's bins are locked. Move nested folders and bins without having to worry about permissions. Works flawlessly under both OS X and Windows.
•Powerful Synchronization Tool: Duplicate media files across two or more servers -- whether they're located in the same building or on the other side of the world. 

•Simplified Media Management: Variable levels of file protection. New “Read Only” option. New “Maintenance Mode” for deleting and modifying files.
•Limited Administration Rights: Grant specific controls on a per user and per Media Space basis. Authorized editors exercise their admin rights through EditShare Connect.
•“Plug and Play” Network Configuration: EditShare can now be configured to act just a like a “switch”. Plug in your workstations and connect to media or anything on the office network.
•Daily "Health Report": Administrators receive a daily email detailing everything you need to know about your server.
•Support for iSCSI : Users will enjoy the ease, simplicity and power of a file-level sharing NAS as well as benefit from the block-level SAN-type connectivity required for applications such as Digidesign’s Pro Tools and Avid Nitris DS systems.

EditShare Workflow and Open Architecture
From field to finish – offline to uncompressed HD - EditShare products are designed to maximize media sharing and storage for multi-user editing environments. Leveraging the power and cost effectiveness of Gigabit Ethernet, EditShare technology enables users to easily and economically share media and work collaboratively. Avid, Apple, Adobe, Autodesk, Boris FX, Canopus, Digidesign, Media 100, and Sony editors and compositors connected to an EditShare network can seamlessly access in real-time a common pool of media files. Unlike standard SAN devices, EditShare technology supports file level sharing - allowing multiple editors to write to the same volume simultaneously.  Regardless of application or platform; source material, work in progress and finished packages are shared and instantly available to all users on the EditShare network. The rules-driven workflow ensures that no data is ever overwritten or accidentally destroyed.
