Editing video with the EditShare Field2

While a single editor connected isn't EditShare's exact target market the Field2 performed very well

By Scott Simmons | February 03, 2014

A recent edit saw the opportunity to test out a type of media storage that I hadn’t used before: that unit was the EditShare Field 2 portable shared storage server. A hard drive isn’t just a hard drive as configurations, connections and speed are all determining factors when it comes to choosing storage. It’s also important how storage performs in the field as the file-based acquisition world we live in means drives are just as important on the set as they are in the edit suite. Enter the EditShare Field 2 as it went right from shoot to post.

A Q and A about those hard drive docking stations we all use

Are they good? Bad? Dangerous? Will you lose data?

By Scott Simmons | January 24, 2014

If you work in post-production then chances are you have one (or more) hard drive docking stations and a slew of bare hard drives to insert into the dock. They are very affordable, come with many different connection options and are incredibly convenient. Back in August the Digital Cinema Cafe featured guest Topher Martini and they talked hard drives. There was a comment about drive docks that made me want to follow up with Topher. The result is a short Q and A about hard drive docking stations (and a lot of pics of those who are using them).
