On the software side, Studio Network Solutions will be previewing the new features of ShareBrowser, a media asset management tool designed to help shared storage users organize and share media. ShareBrowser does this by giving teams the ability to preview, tag, comment, and search online and offline storage, and enabling collaborative workflows for Avid, Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro X, and other creative applications.

New features to be shown include improved integration with Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro X, Finder and Windows Explorer integration, expanded support for third-party LTO providers, increased third-party cloud support, and new multi-variable search functions.

“We have thousands of customers currently using ShareBrowser to work more collaboratively and more efficiently in shared storage environments. It’s been in heavy development since we released it in 2013, and we have a lot of interesting things on the roadmap for our users. There are some big things related to data lifecycle management, deep archive in the cloud, and automation for multi-tier storage environments, so stay tuned for that,” said Ryan Stoutenborough, President, Studio Network Solutions.
