Seamless integration into FCP

Use ShareBrowser’s workflow extension to search your storage, preview files, and bring media and metadata right into your timeline with perfectly synced keywords and notes.

All without leaving Final Cut Pro.

“By harnessing metadata with keyword and tag collections in FCPX, we’ve evolved to a more refined and efficient approach. Now with ShareBrowser, searching and organizing our media is so much easier to manage.”

Andrew Pulaski
Editor and Cinematographer, Abstrakt

Shared FCP libraries, solved

Teams can store their media and FCP libraries on EVO, and securely access them, without the risk of other editors accidentally overwriting protected in-progress work.

Using EVO’s included ShareBrowser software, your whole team can see and keep track of who is working on a FCP library and protect projects from unintended changes by other users.

This method of FCP library sharing is exclusive to EVO, and is the safest and most effective way for a team to use Final Cut Pro with network shared storage.

Search, tag, and preview everything

Every EVO includes ShareBrowser—easy to use media management software that lets you search, tag, organize, and preview media across all of your storage, even external drives, from your desktop or web browser!

Unlimited ShareBrowser licenses are included with every EVO system.

Integrated Keyword Collections

Use ShareBrowser—EVO’s integrated media asset management software—to tag clips based on scene numbers, locations, and more. Then, when you export those clips, FCP will automatically create Keyword Collections based on your tags!

ShareBrowser is designed to help you finish projects faster, inside and outside Final Cut Pro.

Your notes, exactly where you need them

With a simple drag and drop you can send your media, complete with custom tags and comments, directly into your Final Cut Pro project. So you always know what “A001_C003_080213” is.

Custom tags and comments from ShareBrowser will appear inside the “Notes” and “Keyword Collections” fields right inside your FCP project.

For more demanding workflows, like 16-bit 4K DPX/EXR, EVO is available in all-SSD configurations with up to 100Gigabit Ethernet.

Stream counts above were conducted using an EVO 16 Bay model with 16 x 12TB HDD disks and EVO OS v.6.1 on macOS and Windows workstations connected over Gigabit and 10Gb Ethernet using AFP and SMB protocols.

Tests use many simultaneous unique clips (independent files) of various sizes with Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer, and other professional video editing software.

What people are saying

We grew the number of episodes during production and the staff kept growing. We had a show runner, nine producers, two executive producers, seven editors, and four assistant editors—20+ users reviewing and editing footage on EVO at any given time.

Jose Berrios
Post Supervisor, Park Slope Productions

All of our raw footage, Premiere projects, graphics, and finished shows are safe and available from any machine. We’re sometimes delivering over 100 videos a week, so having EVO has been absolutely essential to our workflow.

Golnaz Alibeigi
Channel 9 Studio Manager, Microsoft

We were using a 64TB direct-attached RAID, and it got to a point where we knew we just couldn’t get anything done without a centralized server that we could rely on to handle our workflow without hiccups.

Gevorg Karensky
Founder, Bipolar Studio

We have better processes in place because of EVO. It’s allowed us to sleep… without it, it would always be crunch time.

Lead Video Editor, MasterClass
