Flow 3 is engineered to help you access, manage and move your media on your terms, with intuitive automation services that facilitate quickly handling repetitive, but very important tasks with exact precision.

EditShare®, the technology leader in shared media storage and end-to-end tapeless workflow solutions, is previewing for the first time the new EditShare Flow 3 at NAB 2013 (booth SL9010). This latest version of the Flow represents a major update to the EditShare’s popular asset management software, which includes tools for ingest, logging and browsing. The new release dramatically improves overall functionality such as visibility to all media assets including video, audio and still images. In addition to adding many new features to Flow Ingest, Logger and Browse modules, EditShare has significantly expanded Flow production workflow capabilities with the addition of Flow Automation and AirFlow modules.

Flow Automation significantly improves workflow efficiency, enabling resources to focus on more creative and mission critical aspects of projects. Flexible production workflow templates automate repetitive tasks such as transcoding, media migration, and deleting clips. Flow Automation can also be configured to take other actions based on rules and schedules, saving time and streamlining the entire workflow.

The new AirFlow module lets customers manage media and projects from wherever they are. A simple web browser and Internet connection is all that’s needed to stay on top of your workflow and asset management.

“Flow 3 is engineered to help you access, manage and move your media on your terms, with intuitive automation services that facilitate quickly handling repetitive, but very important tasks with exact precision,” comments Andy Liebman, founder and CEO, EditShare. “More than this, Flow serves as a bridge, interconnecting systems across the production and post-production chain, providing seamless interoperability from start to finish.”
