From IBC 2013: EVO v.5.5 Coming Soon

While we’re here in Amsterdam for IBC 2013, we wanted to share a bit about what we’ve been working on and what we’re demonstrating at the show…

The big announcement is that we’re just about to start shipping the latest upgrades to our EVO shared storage system for video editors. We’re launching a new interface for users, doubling the number of disks EVO can support per node, upgrading our automatic project locking features, improving FCPX compatibility for new workflows, and much more.

EVO v5.5 introduces a new rich client interface enabling your users to search across all EVO storage as well as local, offline, and other network disks. Files can now be indexed on the fly, and users can more easily find, preview, and share media assets and projects. EVO v5.5 even gives you the capability to securely ingest and migrate data using built-in verification tools!
