Now teams can work together on the same project, giving them the ability to truly collaborate and create in real-time no matter where they are based.”

A workflow of three powerful solutions
The companies have come together to create a powerful solution for media professionals: LucidLink’s centralized data repository provides instant data access combined with AJA Diskover Media Edition that helps catalog and find the right file, while customers use Telestream GLIM to review the data and Use Vantage to transcode. The combination offers great speed; LucidLink enables remote workers around the world to share and access data at speeds typically reserved for high-speed on-site storage. AJA Discover Media Edition on LucidLink enables organizations to index extremely large file systems stored via LucidLink very quickly, giving users visibility into the data regardless of where it resides, but without the security risks associated with a full , potentially destructive access to the data .

Simply put, these combined technologies enable media professionals to access, organize and view data in one simple workflow.

“The media and entertainment industry is overburdened with unwieldy data management in production and post, while remote workflows pose additional challenges for managing file locations and metadata in the cloud. AJA Discover Media Edition removes the hurdles associated with data management, helping industry professionals work more efficiently and make more informed data decisions. Our partnership with LucidLink further simplifies navigating cloud storage and enables remote teams to seamlessly collaborate through a streamlined workflow similar to using local storage. By pairing Discoverer Media Edition with LucidLink, users can instantly switch from viewing media and metadata to further producing assets with tools like Telestream’s Vantage package,” he said Nick RasbyPresident, AJA Video Systems.

LucidLink Filespaces: The Future of Cloud Storage Streaming for Teams

LucidLink allows AJA, Diskover and Telestream’s GLIM and Vantage servers located in different parts of the world to easily access data and work together.

Telestream GLIM helps creative professionals view high-quality media files quickly and color-accurately through any web browser—without generating a proxy file. With direct access to and ability to launch the player in AJA Diskover Media Edition, professionals can easily view and validate files residing on-premises or in cloud storage as indexed by Diskover Media Edition as associated metadata. All files are displayed with SCTE-35 markers, waveform view and audio metering to ensure standards compliance for any user, anywhere on the fly.

Users can now select files and send them to an on-premises or cloud-based Telestream Vantage system to create proxies or transcode the assets, regardless of the location of the user, the file, or the Vantage system. In conjunction with the AJA Discover Media Edition global index, the plug-in accelerates workflows by eliminating round-tripping between applications and optimizing files.
