SNS EVO Shared Storage for Education

Academia partners with Studio Network Solutions (SNS) which is a leading media technology company committed to helping educational institutions around the world transform the way they store, share, and organise media.


SNS develops modern video editing storage solutions like EVO, the high-performance shared storage server purpose-built for creative media teams. With built-in media asset management software, file sharing and automations, remote editing tools, and more, EVO is a comprehensive workflow solution for on-campus and online classrooms, school sports, and professional creative services.

What can SNS EVO do?

Speed and Scalability

EVO is ready to handle your most demanding video projects (including 4K, 8K and beyond) with incredible performance. Engineered with faculty and students in mind, EVO works perfectly with leading technologies used in education like Adobe Premiere Pro and other Creative Cloud apps, Avid Media Composer and Pro Tools, DaVinci Resolve, Final Cut Pro X, Ross Video, NewTek/Vizrt, and more. And the EVO shared storage system is scalable to fit your storage space, workflow, and budgetary needs from the small and quiet EVO Prodigy Desktop to multiple EVO 16-bay and EVO Nearline units with petabyte expandability.

Media Asset Management

The powerful and easy-to-use ShareBrowser media asset manager is included free with EVO. Unlimited users can search, preview, tag, comment, index, and share their media and projects through the ShareBrowser desktop application or the browser-based web application (no software needed). You can even add custom metadata fields to collect any information your institution needs and use AI to auto-tag your footage.

Remote Workflow

On campus, online, or a hybrid of both, modern education happens everywhere. EVO’s remote editing utility, Nomad, helps students, instructors, and video production teams retrieve their proxy and source media from the server remotely. By enabling offline, off-campus editing, Nomad provides a practical remote workflow for online learning, after-school projects, cases of inclement weather, creative staff working from home, and other temporary and long-term remote editing needs.



Gone are the days of students and colleagues overwriting each other’s work. With native project locking in ShareBrowser, your video editors won’t save over someone else’s in-progress edit. For added security, EVO’s recycle bin lets you easily restore deleted files and schedule when the recycle bin should be emptied. Or, simply prevent users from deleting files altogether with the “reject delete” feature.

File Automations

Automate your manual file movements and repetitive tasks with Slingshot, the automations engine and API included with EVO. Slingshot can automatically sync, copy, and backup your shares, folders, and files to other systems, including on-site storage and cloud storage locations like Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, Dropbox, and more.
