Jon Rennie,
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 panel integrations for Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro, native project and bin sharing for Avid Media Composer, Nomad remote workflow tools, and other collaborative features your team will love.

Built for media creation workflows

EVO is engineered for today's leading creative software like Adobe Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve, FCPX, and Avid Media Composer. 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.

EVO improves the end-to-end project lifecycle, with solutions for Nearline, cloud backup, and archive management.

More about EVO

The EVO OS offers more video streams per array, and high aggregate throughput, because our customers love to push the envelope.

More performance

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.”

John Lundberg, Head of TV at Pixl Family

Unlimited media management software

Every new EVO system includes unlimited licenses of ShareBrowser. No strings attached.

ShareBrowser is intuitive media management software designed by SNS. It helps teams organize, by giving them a panoramic view of media assets across every connected device.
