DMN Newswire--2007-6-19--EditShare, the technology leader in cross platform collaborative editing and shared media storage systems, has begun shipping version 5.0, the latest release of their award-winning EditShare shared storage solutions. This new release adds significant enhancements including  ?plug and play for easy deployment, a streamlined file management structure to organize media files with greater speed and ease, and daily ?health reports on server activity,
?From day one we have designed EditShare systems to not only support, but advance file-based workflows for media-centric environments. Version 5.0 is no exception. A customer driven release, we are confident that our users will be very pleased with the vastly simplified media sharing experience and impressed with the immense workflow benefits from features such as the new Health Report and Synchronization Tool, comments Andy Liebman, founder and president, EditShare.

"The changes to EditShare 5 has improved our edit workflow substantially. With a large number of users connected, the system would need to re-scan to make new media available to all suites. Now the media appears seamlessly and there is no interruption to the workflow. Add to this the bulletproof reliability that we've been experiencing with our EditShare systems and it truly is the cost effective yet powerful solution that we've been searching for." Michael Burton, general manager, Cutting Edge.
