Shared Storage for Education

EVO is a shared storage system for producing and managing video content for classrooms, sports, and creative services.

EVO shared storage solves common challenges in media workflows

Without it, organization is difficult, moving large files is time-consuming, and creating multiple copies of media for everyone on the team is painfully inefficient and expensive.

Successful production companies know the benefits of using shared storage, and many schools are now seeing the advantages — both inside and outside the classroom. If your media team doesn’t have the right system it will continually face common, storage-related inefficiencies.

Georgetown University

Georgetown saves over 200 hours per year on file management tasks thanks to EVO and ShareBrowser.

“We were recording hundreds of hours of footage and just storing it on external hard drives that we passed back and forth when we needed to copy and share media. We needed a way to find footage quickly and share it without having to transfer drives from editor to editor and bringing the editorial process to a halt.

EVO is an investment in the future of our team. As our department continues to expand, we know that we have a reliable and seamless solution that grows and evolves with us.”
