eSpace - app for calc project disk space needed when editing
on Dec 13, 2016 at 4:42:44 pm


I'm Alex and I have created eSpace for post production and film making, a free storage calc app for iOS & Android, it's similar to AJA Data Calculator but better imho:)

I think it will be a handy tool for editors too, when calculation offline and online storage space. Also we have DNxHR.

You can find eSpace on the appstore and playstore by searching for "espace codecs" and I have also posted links to the app at the bottom of this post. I made this because all the apps out there aren't very good ☺

For those of you who on a daily basis need to calculate how much storage is required while onset filming or in post production, this is a great app, read below why.

Here are some reasons why it's better than the other apps available,

1. You can calculate up 4 formats in parallel - So for post production your offline is 8hrs of Pro Res LT HD and your online will be 3hrs Pro Res 4444 UHD or for onset Camera A filming with HD XDCAM50 for 5 hrs and Camera B filming with GoPro 2.7k for 3hrs it will tell you the total

2. You can enter your own data rate. Choose custom for the codec option and enter a data rate in MB/s or Mb/s

3. Calc how many hours of a codec you can fit on a defined storage amount or calc how much storage space you will require for a certain numbers of hours

4. We have an up to date codec list and will keep this updated as new formats come out. We have DNxHR, 8K RED, LongG, XAVC, AVC-Intra and more

5. Tap the outputs to convert between hours, days, mins and GB, TB, MB

7. For post production calc how much bandwidth performance your storage needs to deliver when playing a number of streams - So you have 5 edit suites playing 2 streams of XDCAM HD each and 2 edit suites playing 4 streams of Pro Res 4444 UHD whats the total performance bandwidth you storage requires to play all this in realtime?

To do this click "Sec" and then enter the number of streams required in the example above you would enter 10 for XDCAM in tab 1 (5 edit suites playing 2 streams each), in tab 2 enter 8 for Pro Res (2 edit suites playing 4 streams each) at the top of each tab click the output to covert to MB. This will now display the MB value to sustain this playback

8. We are free and support Android & iOS

Try the app and please give us feedback, if you want an improvement or codec added let us know.

If you like the app the only thing we ask is that you share the message with friends and also give us a rating on the appstore and playstore.

Just looked at this in the Play Store and I'm wondering why this needs the permissions it lists since it seems that it is basically a calculator?

Hi Nina,

Sorry for the delay, we need access to your storage as there is an ability to send eSpace results, in order to send the results of eSpace we need to create a text file and this needs to be saved somewhere locally before sending. We also need access to your network as when we send your results and also crashes reports to be sent automatically,
