ShareBrowser File & Asset Manager

Media teams work and collaborate more effectively with ShareBrowser.

ShareBrowser runs on macOS and Windows



Search, find, tag, comment, and preview… for the whole team.

ShareBrowser enables your users to organize and search for media and projects across EVO storage as well as local, offline, and other SAN/NAS network disks.

Assets can be catalogued, tagged, and commented, so everyone on the team can easily find, preview, and share media and projects. ShareBrowser is built for media teams that collaborate around a shared storage workflow, giving everyone a central, searchable database.

ShareBrowser shows you your storage workspaces in one spot — including cloud services like Dropbox, Hightail, and Adobe Creative Cloud.

Unlimited client licenses of ShareBrowser are included with every new EVO shared storage system.

Search, Find, and Preview Your Media

 

Find What You Need

Everyone can easily search and find assets using tags, comments, and metadata such as name, codec, frame rate, modified date, resolution, and many other common file attributes.

 

Preview Your Media

Not sure if you’ve found the right clip? Preview media directly from ShareBrowser’s integrated player. Just press the spacebar to start playback of the proxy file, which is playable even if the original source media is offline.

 

No Additional Cost or Hardware

ShareBrowser’s server software runs right inside your EVO. All indexing (cataloguing) and proxy generation can be handled inside EVO, meaning you don’t need any additional server hardware to use ShareBrowser. Unlimited client licenses are included with EVO, so everyone on the team can use ShareBrowser.



Easy-to-Use Asset Management

 

Simple asset management — add tags/keywords and make comments on your assets from folder level down to file level.

Anyone on your team can quickly add tags and comments to media and projects from within ShareBrowser.

 

Project Locking & Collaboration

Collaborate Effectively — Automatic Project Locking and Avid Bin Locking

Features such as Avid Bin Locking and ShareBrowser’s ability to lock Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro X projects mean your editors won’t save over the top of each other.

 

Shared storage works best when it helps your NLE.

ShareBrowser enables native Media Composer bin locking, and also includes a customizable Automatic Project Locking system for other media applications.

When you lock a project you get full access; others have read access until you release the lock. If you need write access to a locked file, just send a request through ShareBrowser and the owner will be instantly notified. Active locks can be viewed from ShareBrowser, Finder, and Explorer.

 

Project Locking is available for After Effects, Photoshop, Pro Tools, and many others.


 

Export to Premiere and Final Cut Pro

Once you’ve found what you need you can export your media — with all the custom tags and comments — directly into Premiere Pro or FCP X and browse by that custom metadata directly from the NLE.

 


Data Verification

ShareBrowser-File-Operations-Verification

Paste & Verify

Paste & Verify enables you to select files and folders on a source volume, select a destination, and initiate a copy with verification.

ShareBrowser-Calculate-MD5-Checksum

MD5 Checksum

Generate an MD5 checksum for a file, store the checksum in the ShareBrowser database, and compare files against existing checksums to ensure data is intact.

 

Send to LTO Archive

Complete Your Workflow — direct integration with StorageDNA means you can send your files to LTO tape archive without leaving ShareBrowser.

 

 

If the data being archived has custom metadata (from ShareBrowser), a JSON file will be created to contain the tags and comments so that they, too, can be archived with the selected folder.


 

1) Runs Inside EVO

ShareBrowser is a client/server system — some of its “magic” happens automatically in your EVO storage server, where the server keeps an eye on things like file movements and project locks.

2) Unlimited Client Licenses

On the other side — the client side — ShareBrowser Desktop Client gives everyone on your team access to commonly-needed functions that frequently occur within media-centric workflows.

3) Created for Teams

ShareBrowser’s goal is to be a “single pane of glass,” where your team can consolidate its interaction with its storage workspaces quickly and conveniently, instead of floating among many different utilities.
