The time has come to unveil our vision for the future of EVO and ShareBrowser.
Last year, we released tons of features like sync, backup, and replication for Slingshot, new panels and extensions for Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro, and After Effects, and scale-out clustering for EVO Nearline. 2020 will bring even more innovation to your EVO shared storage server and its arsenal of easy-to-use software.
For many creatives, it was simply the worst of times. There are few, if any, companies in the media production industry who were prepared for the sudden workflow shifts and shelter-in-place orders of March 2020 brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Nearly every production team was forced to make decisions and quickly plan for a type of remote, off-site work that’s uncommon for media professionals, particularly editors. Aside from the sheer uncertainty of the situation, everyone was asking the same questions:
What is the best way to transport media to and from editors working remotely?
How can we preserve productivity as a team during the pandemic?
How might these circumstances change the way we work in the future?

Podcast network Stitcher recently moved into its new headquarters in Midtown Manhattan, building out a 2,000-square-foot production complex comprising three studios, two edit rooms and two iso booths designed in concert with WSDG Walters-Storyk Design Group. The new facilities have been outfitted to accommodate Stitcher’s typical workflow, which can often involve collaboration between talent, producers and engineers at the company’s offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
