XStream EFS file auditing capabilities

At IBC 2017, EditShare unveiled EFS XStream Auditing — a scale out storage solution with auditing designed for the media and entertainment market.

This product provides comprehensive auditing and reporting of all file system activity, including file creation, deletion, modification, opens and reads as well as general media space access.


EditShare auditing capabilities are designed to deter cyber criminals by providing system administrators with a complete digital footprint of all file interactions.

Unique to this solution is the intuitive XStream EFS Auditing Dashboard that provides administrators a high-level view of activity with the ability to drill down to individual users and files.

The XStream EFS 40NL delivers the performance and economics of traditional nearline storage with the scalability, fault-tolerance and ease of use of the proven EditShare EFS shared storage solution.

Administrators can easily add one or more EFS 40NL nodes of cost-optimized storage to an existing XStream EFS storage cluster as well as configure the EFS 40NL as an independent storage cluster for disaster recovery or media backup purposes.

Quales automated quality check and file verification

Now AMWA-compliant for AS-11 UK DPP, the EditShare team is paving the way for easy compliance at the the click of a button. The unique Quales user interface is designed for the creative, giving an instant visual presentation of the quality-checked file.

Flow users, which include producers, post supervisors, editors and other non-engineer staff, will have an intuitive visual aid to spot-check content.

With QC offered as a core capability within the EditShare Flow media asset management platform, users will be able to systematically QC content at any point across the workflow saving countless hours of production and post-production time.

EditShare is also planning another large scale QC product announcement for NAB.
