EditShare – How you can forget about Fibre and still be happy
Presenter: Eric Gardner, Channel Wolves

The recent introduction of new affordable shared storage technologies is making it much easier to integrate your compositing and editing systems; paving the way for faster productions with maximum signal quality. These new solutions have many broadcasters and post-production professionals trending away from expensive Fibre network technology to more cost effective Gigabit Ethernet networks – simplifying media sharing and workflows and maximizing budget resources.

Eric’s presentation demonstrates the EditShare technology and discusses real-world scenarios in which broadcasters and post facilities have made the switch from Fibre to Ethernet and are happy they have done so.
