EditShare ships V7 Geevs video server for sports and more
EditShare has announced the release of version 7 of its Geevs range of ingest and playout video servers. Geevs 7 adds a host of new features including enhanced integration with EditShare’s shared storage and Flow media asset management solutions.
Tara Montford, EditShare’s managing director, comments: “This release marks a significant milestone in EditShare’s strategy to provide resilient and collaborative solutions that simplify our customers’ workflows. Geevs 7 exemplifies this philosophy and expands our ability to provide completely integrated EditShare workflow solutions.”
Geevs 7 provides a host of increased functionality and features for the standard Geevs Client licence, including: playback and recording of channels across multiple Geevs servers from a single client; descriptive markers while recording for fast content tagging; channel viewer and administrator interface redesign; local playback of clip files for reduced network bandwidth; and “Record Local and Push” option adding recording resilience on slow networks.
Application-specific updates for Geevs options include: new short-cut key for camera and marker selection in Geevs Studio MC; NLE sequences can now be imported into Geevs Live for instant playback; and direct timecode entry for fast, precise review and playout in Geevs Sports.
Also fundamental to the Geevs 7 release is deeper integration across the EditShare product line. Enhanced integration with EditShare’s Flow media asset management platform includes the ability for Geevs to generate AirFlow-compatible H.264 proxy files, allowing immediate web-based access to recorded media. Meanwhile, Quality of Service integration with EditShare shared storage reserves bandwidth for Geevs ingest and media playback.
