About the EditShare/Cutting Edge Project Cutting Edge Managing Director Michael Burton proposed a tapeless workflow as a means to improve turnaround times for the fast paced reality TV shows. The transition to the tapeless workflow solved several critical issues and reduced overall costs of the operation. No longer did the team have to double handle media, digitize rushes for large reality series such as Big Brother. With EditShare editors have instant access to high resolution source material via Gigabit Ethernet networks 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
