EditShare Scores Big with Chelsea TVIntegrator Altered Images spearheads upgrade to EditShare`s tapeless production and playout workflow for Chelsea TV (September 09, 2011) Basingstoke, UK September 9, 2011 - EditShare®, the technology leader in cross-platform collaborative editing and shared media storage systems, announced that Chelsea TV, the London-based Premier League Football Club broadcaster, has upgraded their Stamford Bridge production facility with end-to-end EditShare tapeless production and playout technology: Geevs for managing multichannel ingest; EditShare Flow for asset management and live sports logging, fully integrated with the companys tiered storage solutions; XStream shared storage and Ark nearline and offline archiving. Altered Images, EditShares premiere system integrator, oversaw the modern design and extensive implementation. Launched in 2001, Chelsea TV is a paid subscription service on the Sky Digital network airing top-rated shows such as Friday Night Live, Blues News, and Reserves Live. The highly popular Chelsea TV programming is also available online at Chelseafc.com and through mobile services in over 50 countries worldwide. ?More and more EditShare installations are encompassing our complete workflow, from ingest to archive, comments Tara Montford, General Manager, EditShare EMEA. ?Chelsea TV invested early-on in EditShare, installing one of the first shared storage solutions we offered. Their tremendous growth since 2001 in terms of programming schedule and distribution platforms matched EditShares expansion in production and broadcast capabilities. From complete file-based ingest, to collaborative editing, shot logging, full file-based archive, retrieval through Ark, Chelsea TVs new EditShare workflow improves their production capabilities for turning around game coverage and entertainment programming faster than ever before. The new workflow features Geevs direct capture of Chelsea Club sports content to the EditShare XStream shared storage system fully integrated with Ark. The EditShare Flow live-logging templates and comprehensive metadata tracking make managing content, whether it is a live game or player interview, much more manageable. ?What makes the new EditShare installation really shine is the ease of logging player actions using Flow. The customized logging templates contain just about every event/action we could think of; a player receiving a yellow card, a red card, scoring a goal or giving an interview. With Flow templates, producers and operators log information in a standardized manner; ensuring that other staff can quickly and easily locate content. Editors have a much more streamlined workflow with dragging clips from the point of ingest already indexed into their Avid. It is an incredibly fast turnaround, Richard Bignell, Executive Producer, Chelsea TV.
EditShare Flow, Lightworks, Geevs, and Ark bookend the shared storage solutions with production asset management, editing, and distribution capabilities. The integrated solutions provide a highly scalable, end-to-end media management workflow.
