ERA is focused on delivering innovative and reliable technical solutions that enable businesses to harness IT, video and file-based workflow's and gain real-time strategic advantage. We are excited to preview ERA Media Flow at BVE North and demonstrate how it will enable media companies to handle more jobs, more effectively, more quickly and with less error – freeing up valuable creative resources to do what they do best.”
