EditShare adds seamless proxy editing to EFSv

EditShare has added a new seamless proxy-editing feature to its EFSv platform that it says can help make editing in the cloud more cost-efficient while also improving remote editing workflows.

According to EditShare, EFSv optimizes the use of both object and block storage located in the cloud to allow for savings of up to 75% compared to the existing costs of cloud storage and workstations, thereby making cloud editing more accessible to more facilities.

With this new feature, EFSv eliminates the workarounds associated with proxy editing and conforming to create a seamless proxy-editing experience in all editors, including those from Adobe, Avid and Blackmagic.

“The economics of cloud production have been a barrier to widespread adoption for media companies everywhere. Often it is considered as a backup plan or short-term workaround to a specific situation or project,” says Conrad Clemson, CEO of EditShare. “The implementation of the seamless proxy-editing feature of EFSv unlocks the power of the cloud as the last piece of the content supply chain.”

With EFSv, high-resolution original files can be stored in economical object storage yet read through the EFSv native file system driver, while small, lightweight editing proxies are stored in standard block storage. Both sets of files are always available and accessible to the NLE application — streamlining color grading, effect creation and conforming. Additionally, for Adobe Premiere, the new Flow panel automates the clip import process to ensure Premiere understands that both versions exist and enables toggling between them at any time.

DejaEdit collaborative editing platform available worldwide

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.
