Video Shared Storage Overview | EVO
EVO enables better video workflow — you get more time to create.
EVO is an easy-to-use video shared storage and media management server, built to make every post-production team more effective.
EVO is SAN and NAS workflow storage for professional video teams.
We make EVO so that editors, colorists, and producers can live in harmony knowing their media and projects are easy to access, share, and find.
It’s a beautiful thing.
Battle proven shared storage
Creative professionals all around the world use EVO — for everything from broadcast to feature films, ad spots, VR, 360° video, and more.
“We have 75 workstations and a 40 node render farm hanging off the backbone of our infrastructure.
Whether there are artists working or major renders happening, there can be 100 machines hammering our EVO systems, and these demands are met effortlessly.”
Managing Director at Bait Studio
“We needed a shared storage solution that could handle UHD post-production and we needed a simple MAM to help us manage the wealth of data we’ll be generating.
SNS has us covered on all bases.”

Built for your NLEs, and your workflows
EVO isn’t just “compatible” with your hardware and software.
Take your video editing workflow to the next level with native project and bin sharing for Avid Media Composer, project locking for Adobe Premiere Pro, library sharing for Final Cut Pro X, and other collaborative features your team will love.
Built for media creation workflows
EVO is engineered for today’s leading creative software like Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve, and FCPX. These applications have extraordinary I/O requirements, so EVO is set for everything from DNxHD 36 to 8K.
Once your clips, audio, and other project materials are on the EVO server they’re available to everyone on your team, ready to be edited and reviewed from any connected workstation.
More about EVO
The EVO OS offers more video streams per array, and high aggregate throughput, because our customers love to push the envelope.
Systems can be configured using HDD and/or SSD, and with multiple ports of GbE, 10GbE, 25GbE, all the way up to 50Gb Ethernet for the most demanding requirements.
It can even support color grading your DPX/EXR sequences.
It’s like a magic undelete button!
New intern accidentally trashed something important? Don’t worry. EVO’s recycle bin lets you restore files accidentally deleted from the network, saving everyone from that awkward situation.
“While one person is laying down graphics on an offline machine in After Effects, someone can be coloring on our online station with Resolve, and still another can be editing offline, all sharing the same project file.”

Unlimited media management software
Every new EVO system includes unlimited licenses of ShareBrowser. No strings attached.
