EditShare has announced the availability of Flow 2019 Extension 3, adding support for newsroom and multi-camera workflows.The software-defined media asset management (MAM) solution simplifies media sharing and collaboration with embedded production tools to track, search, retrieve, edit, and automate media and mediaprocesses across on-premise and cloud-based storage solutions.
“EditShare news customers can link their NRCS to the productionand storage systems via Flow 2019 Extension 3, providing journalists better access to content with tools to package a news story at their fingertips,” commented Matt Sandford, manager - Flow Product, EditShare.With support for MOS protocol in Flow 2019 Extension 3, journalists can create placeholders, craft stories and send for approval and distribution, without having to jump from one application to another.
“Flow Story is all about editing beyond the confines of the facility. Adding support for multi-camera expands the types of productions you can edit remotely,” stated Matt Hallin, technical director - Video Group, EditShare. “And what's unique about the Flow Story’s multi-camera functionality is its ability to edit multi-camera content and track the assets and associated metadata within the MAM environment,” he added.
Flow 2019 Extension 3 multi-camera editing capabilities allow multiple clips to be synchronised using timecode or audio waveform, and then played concurrently for convenient reviewing and logging. Sequences can be built conventionally, or by making a 'live' edit fromthe playing sources, and sequence segments can be instantly swapped for alternate angles atany time.
Hallin concluded,“Flow Story also has the flexibility to allow sequences to be used in a multi-camera group, making it simple for editors to deal with footage from cameras that were stopped and started during a recording. Multiple clips from a single camera can be automatically stitched back together into a single sequence ready to use, without the need for rendering or any time consuming manual alignment.”
