EditShare Cloud Solutions to support GBH postproduction workflows
EditShare has announced that it will provide its EFSv cloud solution, hosted by Amazon Web Services, to GBH, the largest content creator for PBS. This collaboration will enable video production on cloud and facilitates both hybrid and cloud post-production workflows.
GBH is responsible for programs like Nova, Antiques Roadshow, American Experience and for PBS’ World Channel. According to both companies’ statement, EditShare’s approach to open platform development, specifically its support for multiple cloud providers and public APIs for integration and workflow expansion, was a key factor in GBH’s decision to select EFSv.
“We require adaptable, efficient media systems for all of our clients,” said Tim Mangini, senior director of production technology for GBH. “EditShare’s cloud solution gives our producers flexibility and scalability. They can work wherever they want, with whomever they want, whenever they want, and only pay for the resources they actually use. They upload their media once and work from anywhere as if they were working in any edit suite.”
“Shifts in video production require more agility and demand the ability to accommodate changing work habits. As GBH embraces those shifts, open and flexible cloud-based solutions enable new workflows while protecting the investments made in on-premise platforms,” comments Tracy Geist, chief marketing officer, EditShare. “EFSv offers the best of both worlds, providing frictionless storytelling workflows that are flexible and secure, while accommodating change.”
