EditStor EO Shared Media Storage Brings Unique Functionality To Adobe’s Leading Collaborative Video Workflow
Burbank, CA (September 3, 2014) – Archion, a global leader in providing networked storage solutions for today’s media workflows, announced that its EditStor EO shared storage system is now integrated with Adobe® Anywhere for video, the leading collaborative video workflow. Together, Archion’s EditStor and Adobe Anywhere deliver a comprehensive solution for Adobe Premiere® Pro CC, After Effects® CC and Prelude® CC, part of the Adobe Creative Cloud®.
“The integration of Adobe Anywhere with Archion’s EditStor EO offers the powerful combination of a robust shared storage solution and high-resolution collaborative editing,” said Simon Williams, director of strategic relations at Adobe. “Creative professionals using Adobe Anywhere and EditStor now gain the benefit of collaborating from virtually any location with standard network connectivity.”
Adobe Anywhere for video is a collaborative workflow platform that empowers teams using Adobe professional video solutions, including Adobe Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC and Prelude CC, to work together with centralized media and assets across standard networks. Adobe Anywhere eliminates the need for the geographic proximity of team members, instead allowing teams to form and operate based on their skill sets. Users can collaborate using standard open systems, networks and processes to shoot, log, edit, share and finish professional video productions. With a scalable architecture and proxy-free workflow, Adobe Anywhere brings new efficiencies to video production.
Making Media Sharing Easy and Accessible
Archion’s EditStor platform makes media sharing easy and affordable for creative professionals that work with Adobe Anywhere, Adobe Creative Cloud and other popular media creation tools. EditStor EO and ES easily facilitates the flow, conversion and management of media within the production workflow by offering the richest media management feature set for video and audio workflows available today. All of this comes at a very competitive price-performance ratio.
A complete self-contained shared storage system, Archion’s EditStor EO takes advantage of low-cost, standard Ethernet network protocols, while also delivering the highest performance over 10GigE (and soon 40GigE). EditStor can now directly connect to 16 Mercury and Collaboration engines while also being able to support an unlimited number of Mac, Windows and Linux OS-based clients through standard Ethernet switch architecture, without any intrusive drivers, installers or client licenses.
“The power and performance of Adobe Anywhere and Archion’s EditStor EO will drive creative content workflows around the world,” said James Tucci, chief technology officer of Archion. “The flexibility of EditStor to provide the storage, with optimized file-based protocols, and direct 10gigE connections to the Anywhere servers is unparalleled. From the time we began working with Adobe, it was clear to us that Archion’s EditStor was the optimal storage system for Anywhere.”
“We are excited about integrating with Adobe Anywhere, which represents the most innovative system for creative teams,” said Reuben Lima, Archion’s chief executive officer. “Adobe Anywhere removes all geographic limitations, facilitating global collaboration for content creation. Archion has embraced Adobe’s vision, and we are delighted to support Adobe Anywhere with Archion’s EditStor to provide superior bandwidth with our patented optimization technology.”
As an Adobe solutions provider and an Adobe Anywhere technology provider, Archion has begun to work very closely with other Anywhere technology providers and system integrators to deliver the most comprehensive Adobe workflows and knowledge base.
