In one of the largest contracts awarded of its kind, Digistor has won the nationwide post production upgrade for one of Australia’s major national broadcasters. The upgrade encompasses existing post-production facilities and the broadcaster’s editing platform, with Digistor providing and installing a hybrid on-premise and cloud solution with remote editing capability and automated speech to text. The new upgraded solution also includes a powerful production asset management (PAM) layer to organise and automate production workflows.
Digistor’s new solution not only replaces a legacy system, but also brings significant workflow improvements and efficiencies whilst leveraging the cloud to enable remote workers and teams to seamlessly collaborate, regardless of their location. 
The new upgrade and solution includes many of the key technologies that Digistor specialises in, including EditShare storage, both EFS on-prem and EditShare FLEX cloud solutions (previously known as EFSv). There’s also comprehensive FLOW media management tools, AirFLOW media sharing, FLOW NLE integrations for remote editorial and FLOW Automation to orchestrate workflows. Alongside and integrated with these are HelmutFX to manage multi-user Adobe® Premiere® Pro projects and production workflows, and Audimus AI-based automated transcription.
All new hardware and software will be tightly and seamlessly integrated with the broadcaster’s existing networking and server environment by Digistor’s team, and the cloud components of the system will be hosted by AWS.
In addition to providing, installing and commissioning the new hardware and software components, Digistor engineers will work closely with EditShare to provide a range of services during the implementation. These include workflow discovery to understand, redesign and define workflows to improve productivity, a detailed design phase, project management, and full implementation.
Digistor will also provide the broadcaster with comprehensive staff training services including, superuser training, train-the-trainer and administrator training. When the training has been completed, the new system will then be supported by Digistor’s premium and highly-acclaimed Customer Assurance Plan.
This new and major contract comes after many years of Digistor having long and successful associations with all of Australia’s major broadcasters, where they supply and support solutions for editing, graphics, live broadcast, storage, asset management, playout and distribution – often leveraging the cloud and remote workflows. 
A key, important and common aspect in all of these solutions are the technical services that Digistor provides to ensure all projects are successfully implemented and supported over the life of the solution. 

In more EditShare-based news, Digistor has also recently designed, installed and rolled-out a multi-petabyte solution in Sydney for a global religious organisation, providing them with the significant benefits and expertise that come with all of Digistor’s large-scale deployments.
