DejaSoft has expanded the availability of its DejaEdit collaborative editing solution for Avid Media Composer, Avid Nexis and EditShare workflows. Already well-established in Scandinavia and parts of Europe, the software-defined network solution is now accessible across the UK, Europe, Latin America, Middle East, Asia, Africa, China and North America.
DejaEdit allows editors to transfer media files and timelines automatically and securely around the world without having to be online continuously. It effectively acts as a media file synchronizer for multiple remote Avid systems.
DejaEdit allows multi-site post facilities to work as one, enabling multiple remote editors to work together, allowing media exchanges with VFX houses and letting editors easily migrate between office and home or mobile-based editing installations throughout the lifecycle of a project.
DejaEdit is available in two applications: Client and Nexus. The Client version works directly with Media Composer, whereas the Nexus variant further enables synchronization with projects stored on Nexis or EditShare storage systems.
DejaSoft and the DejaEdit platform are a collaboration between CEO Clas Hakeröd and CTO Nikolai Waldman, both editors and post pros and founders of boutique post facility Can Film based in Sweden.
The tool is already being used by Oscar-nominated editor Yorgos Mavropsaridis, ACE, of The Favourite, The Lobster and recently Suicide Tourist; Scandinavian producer Daniel Lägersten, who has produced TV series such as Riverside and The Spiral; editor Rickard Krantz, who used it on The Perfect Patient (aka Quick), which has been nominated for Sweden’s Guldbagge Award (similar to a BAFTA) for editing; and post producer Anna Knochenhauer, known for her work on Euphoria featuring Alicia Vikander, The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, Lilya 4-Ever and Together.
