Kool Tools: Flow 3 media asset management solution


If you need a media asset management solution, EditShare has upgraded Flow to version 3, adding new features such as AirFlow for web-based remote access and Flow Automation for designing templates that automate repetitive tasks like file copying, deleting, transcoding and archiving.

Flow 3 release also features significant user interface enhancements, including improved cuts-only editing, enhanced drag-and-drop facilities, and support for third-party storage. Fully integrated with EditShare shared storage (XStream, Energy, Field and Ultra) and archiving (Ark) products, Flow 3 is an end-to-end workflow solution, from baseband SDI and file-based ingest with transcode to asset logging, browsing and retrieval of content on EditShare media spaces and archives.

Integrated production tools facilitate fast shot selection, rough cuts and preview of media with associated metadata from standard desktop systems connected to the EditShare network. Flow 3 features six distinct modules.

Flow Ingest lets you manage SDI and file-based ingest direct to storage. It offers “edit-while-capture” scenarios, advanced support for metadata and codecs.

Flow Logger provides an user interface for logging. Flow Browse provides advanced search functionality for any media type across online, near-line and offline shared storage and archives.

AirFlow lets you organize media files and permissions via the cloud. Flow Automation helps reduce time spent on repetitive tasks with customized workflow templates; it automates complex file transactions and migrations. Flow 3 also adds a new API [application programming interface] for integrating third-party systems into the EditShare environment.

The new AirFlow module provides web-based access to content stored on EditShare Media Spaces and Archives with tools to browse, search and annotate media. Users can add or update metadata, markers and subclips— collaborating with other Flow users in real time. AirFlow also supports high quality, low bit rate streaming proxy files, making it ideal for viewing and working with content on mobile devices such as iPad and Android tablets.

Flow Automation is a powerful workflow tool designed to automate repetitive tasks such as transcoding to/from specific video formats. The module’s Workflow Designer and Job Designer functions feature drag-and-drop tools to create simple and complex workflow templates, orchestrating Triggers, Inputs, Tasks and Filters to better manage media and increase productivity.

Users can capitalize on the power of Flow by connecting third-party systems into the EditShare workflow via the new Flow API. The JSON-based interface provides a range of functionality options, from simple metadata exchanges to complete workflow processes.
