EditShare storage servers allow all connected workstations to capture, access and share a common pool of media files in real time.

EditShare storage servers allow all connected workstations to capture, access and share a common pool of media files in real time.

EditShare, a provider of crossplatform collaborative editing and shared media storage, and Dixon Sports Computing, a specialist in sports video management, have deployed a new HD production workflow at the Cincinnati Reds’ Great American Ball Park.

The installation combines EditShare's shared-storage solutions with Dixon's Sports Management software (Dixon SAM). The fully integrated solution provides an HD-ready shared-storage environment that centralizes media ingest and automates metadata logging. With detailed metadata capture and centralized content catalog, editors can perform enterprise searches of all game media (past and present) and share project files, regardless of size or format.

“During the game, we can be on an edit station selecting hits and strikeouts and putting the highlight package together in a hurry based on information in Dixon,” said Dave Storm, production manager for the Cincinnati Reds. “Then, a month later, somebody can look at that same data from a completely different angle referencing the same metadata via the Dixon software. We pull the media from EditShare — whether it's for a commercial or a video we're putting together for a school appearance. We're using the same tools for completely different purposes.”

The Reds’ 40TB EditShare Storage Series is connected via 10GigE to an HP ProCurve network switch to provide optimal performance for the high-volume HD workflow. Five editors working on Apple Final Cut Pro workstations are connected to the server via GigE and have simultaneous access to the media. Dixon's logging interface monitors house time code during games to match to particular events and also incorporates basic roster and statistical information from the Reds’ DakStats scoring system. Production operators identify the best angles on key plays, creating subclips that are stored on an EVS system. All subclips are automatically rewrapped and moved to the EditShare system, finalizing a complete, integrated media management package with metadata crossreferencing capabilities.

The combined system has proven to be a powerful workflow engine, offering both immediacy and long-term media management for the Reds. Dixon and EditShare will continue to streamline HD workflows into the Reds' 2010 season.

The Omneon MediaGrid system

The Omneon MediaGrid system will be closely tied to numerous EVS XT[2] servers to make HD footage immediately available and exchangeable between storage and production environments.

EVS Broadcast Equipment is working with server provider Omneon to develop an integrated storage and instant tapeless production workflow to support NBC’s coverage of the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games. The joint technology partnership will result in a tapeless workflow that simultaneously leverages the scalable high-capacity Omneon MediaGrid active storage system and the high-performance EVS XT[2] production server to enable fast, seamless access to high volumes of HD media in live and near-live broadcast production environments.

The integration between the Omneon MediaGrid system and the EVS XT[2] server allows any HD footage to be immediately available and exchangeable between storage and production environments, according to Matt Adams, vice president of broadcast solutions at Omneon.

The EVS XT[2] production server, along with the EVS IPDirector suite, including the IPEdit on-the-fly editing solution, will be used for HD live and near-live ingest, production and playout. Content recorded on the XT[2] servers in Avid DNxHD will be made available on the Omneon MediaGrid system as self-contained MXF OP1a files through the XTAccess, the EVS Intelligent GigE network gateway. Conversely, EVS operators will be able to capture and manipulate video from the Omneon MediaGrid system to be used for production and playout.
