Storage flexibility – Online, Nearline, Cloud

Flow adds an intelligent software layer to your storage environment, helping you manage your content wherever it is – online, nearline, offline (tape) or cloud.

Flow is not just for EditShare shared storage Flow offers native integration with platforms such as production storage Avid Nexis, StorageDNA, cloud based Amazon S3 and with any SMB mount storage pool. Automation enables you to move large buckets of media to different tiered storage.

Flow’s core components include:

Flow Story
Flow Story adds powerful editing capabilities, enabling users to work collaboratively between the Story client location and centralised shared storage. Flow Story is ideally suited to fast turnaround environments such as News, Sports and Reality TV programming, providing journalists and production teams with the ability to package content for finishing, delivery or playout. Fast and efficient proxy-based workflow solves the problems of extra fees or upload times associated with ‘cloud’ storage; just amazing content delivered in a fraction of the time, anywhere in the world.

AirFlow
Media management on the move, the lightweight browser-based AirFlow client brings all the secure media sharing capabilities of the Flow MAM to multi-team multi-location productions. It’s simple and intuitive web-based interface lets collaborators located anywhere in the world search, log, index, organize and play media content; and also upload and download content directly to and from central storage systems.

Flow Automation
The powerful Flow Automation application removes the complexities of dealing with large volumes of content and negates the workload of repetitive tasks such as transcoding, QC’ing content or delivering media to Amazon S3 buckets. Automation’s simple node-based interface enables you to put together factories of processes that can be run ad hoc or set to repeat on a daily or a weekly basis.

The Workflow we want to highlight  here is for Remote Post Production

The current reality is everyone involved in post-production projects are unlikely to be in the building at the same time . Editors may be in one location, production elsewhere, producers somewhere else. But the need for collaboration is still required.

With Flow, teams can collaborate on content wherever they are through a regular Internet connection. Whether it is for logging, editing, delivery or backup, remote collaboration is easy to achieve. Flow opens many new opportunities for production and post-production companies.
