At the recommendation of technology partner Digistor, brand and content agency Chello upgraded their technology and data storage solutions with EditShare’s EFS software defined ecosystem and EditShare FLOW media management for their data storage solution and daily workflow.
Having installed 10GB Ethernet cables across their office to ensure each workstation can support the connection speed required to edit 4K+ footage, Chello had to ensure that their storage solution was up to the job, especially when their creatives had to work on video projects directly from the server.
They also required automated backup and archive solutions to be able to easily back up and archive projects. At the same time, the storage solution had to be easily scalable, and everyone in the agency needed to have remote access to the server through the company’s network.
“When we got in touch with Digistor, EditShare was the system they recommended,” said Tristan Velasco, Chello’s Co-Founder & Creative Director. “Put simply, the EditShare solution easily met all of our requirements and we are yet to even maximise how we use EditShare FLOW.”
Chello is currently using EFS to store all recent and live projects across video, animation, and design, and to manage all project files via a templated folder structure. This contains all raw footages and source files including photographs, 3D assets, illustrations, all project files and their various versions, delivery files across video, animation, and design, as well as production related files.
Velasco said, “From a technology and workflow perspective, the edge EditShare gives us is primarily around the speed at which we are able to work on projects requiring really large file sizes, the security of our backup systems and archive systems.
“It’s second to none.”
