Ready for Productions

Productions for Premiere Pro gives multi-user editing teams greater flexibility for their post-production workflow. At their core, Productions and EVO both allow editing teams to work on big projects as a single, cohesive unit.

EVO shared storage servers are fully compatible with Productions, giving post-production teams the tools they need for their most intensive film and television projects.

“Our Productions team has collaborated extensively with SNS to build massive environments, to test the new features under extreme conditions. This is a robust solution for the most demanding production workflows.”

Search, tag, and preview everything

Every EVO includes ShareBrowser, built-in media management software that gives you a complete view of your media across every connected device, from your desktop or from your web browser, so you’ll never ask where “that one shot is” again.

Unlimited ShareBrowser licenses are included with every EVO system, so you can add or remove users seamlessly.

ShareBrowser in a Premiere panel

Search, preview, and import media from anywhere on your storage system without ever leaving Premiere. Enjoy full access to your custom ShareBrowser metadata, and when you import a clip, your tags and comments come along into Premiere so you can continue to reference them throughout the edit.

With a simple drag and drop, or a single-click, multiple files can be imported directly from the panel to your project.

For more demanding workflows, like 16-bit 4K DPX/EXR, EVO is available in all-SSD configurations with up to 50 Gigabit Ethernet.

Tests 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 are done with many simultaneous unique clips (independent files) of various sizes with Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer, and other professional video software. These numbers represent what you get from your EVO system after extensive use, not fresh out of the box.

“All we have to do is put our energy towards creating things as a team. EVO is this invisible force that keeps us all connected every minute, every day.”

Import your tags and comments

Stop wondering which take A011_C003_080213 is. Get your notes exactly where you need them. View and search your ShareBrowser tags and comments from directly inside your bins in Premiere Pro.

Your tags and comments from ShareBrowser will appear inside the “Description” and “Log Notes” fields in your project panel.

ShareBrowser tags and comments become log notes and descriptions inside of the Premiere Pro workspace.

A shared media location for team projects

EVO makes Adobe Team Projects workflows easy. Once your media is imported from EVO, other users will be able to access the media inside the team project instantly without relinking media.

Not using team projects? You can still securely share projects using EVO’s advanced project locking feature—which enables teams to share Premiere, After Effects, and other project files without overwriting each other.

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.
