FSU Heads Back to School with EditShareEditShare aides educators by enhancing the creative teaching and learning experience (November 16, 2006)
DMN Newswire--2006-11-16--EditShare, the pioneer of cross platform collaborative editing and shared media storage systems, announced today that Florida State University (FSU) has deployed EditShare to optimize media sharing for their post production facility Seminole Productions. FSU College of Communication students staff the Seminole Productions facility. The students create and deliver client-driven programming as well as packages related to the universitys widely popular athletics program.
Many of the Seminole Productions programs utilize the same footage, so centralizing media storage and simplifying access to source materials was key in FSUs decision to go with EditShare. ?Before the EditShare installation we would ingest media to each suite that needed that specific footage. A tremendous amount of time was spent doing this add in that tapes get lost. Now with EditShare we ingest media once and make it available to all edit suites immediately and simultaneously, comments Mark Rodin, Director of Seminole Productions. ?With EditShare we were able to cut down significantly the amount of time we spent ingesting media and work with the students on the art of editing.
Seminole Productions provides FSU students an educational environment in which they can learn their craft while working on real-world productions. The facility boasts 14 edit suites equipped with industry standard products from Adobe, Apple, Avid, Boris and Lightwave. Leveraging cost effective Gigabit Ethernet technology, EditShare provides a unique shared access workflow among the various applications as well as a straight forward methodology for media and project protection eliminating overwrites and accidental media deletion. The workflow is ideal for the FSU students and educators who leverage EditShare capabilities to raise the level of communications and creativity.
?A student editor can call down to another suite or to one of the staff producer/editors and say ?take a look at this and see what you think and that person can see it on their editing system and offer feedback immediately. It really opens up communication and collaboration, comments Rodin. ?EditShare has become an integral part of the education process and tremendous value for students learning in this real-world environment. EditShare also allows the FSU students to make their projects more ?mobile. With EditShare, students can go to any available edit suite and log on to access their project. No longer are students tied to a specific editing suite. This increases the efficiency and productivity of the entire Seminole Productions operation.
