A lifetime ago I was introduced to the company that produced this;

They basically use a virtual filesystem approach in order to allow one NLE 
to share information with the other NLE. I think originally implementing 
all the formats, but having MXF as backend. If you would go for this 
approach then having operational patterns available describing 'the 
timeline' being a very interchangeable solution. Now I wonder practically 
how they have resolved effects and likes not being available in one, but in 
the other.

I cannot really comment on this part :)

It was also quite some years ago with Elphel and later Axiom. I mainly 
focussed on bootstrapping what was needed to boot a Zedboard. So cannot 
comment on the progress.

At this moment I am working more on the open source linear stuff, 
OpenSwitcher.org, and QML based rendering solutions.
