South Africas Sasani Studios Builds Its Next Generation Media Foundation with EditShare Workflow Solutions

18/07/2019

--

EditShare , a technology leader in intelligent scale-out storage, Automated Quality Control (AQC), editing and media management solutions, announced today that South African media powerhouse Sasani Studios has designed its next-generation multi-camera workflow production around EditShare workflow solutions EditShare Flow, EFS scale-out media engineered storage, multi-channel Geevs ingest and Ark archiving.

Boasting ten main television and film stages and three additional acoustically-designed studio spaces, Sasani Studios is one of the largest multifunctional complexes of its type in Africa. The full-service studio is responsible for five of Africa's most popular soap operas - 7de Laan, Isidingo, Scandal!, Skeem Saam, and The Rhythm Citizens. The intense production schedule produces six shows per week for each soap opera year-round, turning out more than 1,400 original episodes to keep viewers consistently engaged.

Approaching a decade on its original EditShare shared storage platform, Sasani's head of engineering, Kim Smith, made a planned investment to upgrade to the latest EditShare EFS distributed scale-out storage platform, expanding the media management capabilities of its operation, which also features EditShare Flow production asset management and Ark LTO archiving, as well as Geevs for multi-channel ingest management from every studio. Underpinned by four new high-performance EFS nodes, the advanced media foundation further connects production and post with media management tools for automating complex transactions and simultaneously managing mass content as well as the various workgroup's access across five distinct programs.

With this next stage of our multi-camera production infrastructure, it was important to move forward with the future in mind. EditShare's deep industry knowledge combined with our longstanding relationship allowed us to build a high-performance media foundation with the flexibility to incorporate emerging technologies as well as expand and augment our productions as needed, comments Smith.

In addition to enhancing the internal media infrastructure, Sasani is looking to leverage the benefits of Cloud-based production. Evaluating EditShare Airflow and Flow Story to build a secure hybrid workflow, Sasani is looking to add flexibility to the rigid review and editorial workflow. Smith explains, Flow Story and AirFlow will allow us to securely access content outside the facility which would give producers more space with regards to the review and approval process, whether its looking at an episode's continuity or making a quick edit off hours. There are lots of options from teams collaborating across departments to tapping into creative talent outside the studio to work on projects.

Effectively managing media across a multi-camera soap opera production workflow is a difficult task. Multiplying this scenario by five is daunting even for the most experienced production facility, explains Tara Montford, Executive Vice President Business Development at EditShare. EditShare worked closely with Sasani to design a next-generation workflow that enables them to tightly control the immense amount of content from capture to finish. Based on the latest EFS file system, the new EditShare foundation will manage with ease the growing list of formats and delivery requirements with flexibility to incorporate emerging technologies as they arise. Montford concludes, Like its predecessor, we expect the new EditShare platform to revolutionize the collaboration with capabilities like remote review, approval, and editing and take Sasani into the next decade. EditShare is about building your future.
