Avid Nexis, an easy choice
Since its introduction at NAB 2016, substantial numbers of production and post-production facilities have implemented Avid NEXIS.
Stop-motion animation studio LAIKA has invested in Avid NEXIS | E4 for its current and future animated feature films. “At LAIKA, we have an uptime environment—meaning we cannot have downtime—with editorial at the heart of production and multiple projects running at the same time,” said Trevor Cable, Lead Media Engineer and Editorial Manager at LAIKA. “Avid NEXIS provides us with great media management, unrivaled reliability, and high bandwidth at a competitive price. It was very easy to deploy and it’s simple to create users, groups and workspaces. I have complete confidence in Avid NEXIS | E4 and plan on purchasing another for failover redundancy.”
“With all of our Avid-centric workflows at Gorilla, Avid NEXIS was an easy choice,” said Barry Reid, Managing Director and Owner at Gorilla Post Production. “Our decision was based on the continued reliability we’ve always experienced with Avid products. The bandwidth is so fast that any edit suite in the facility—be it offline, grade, mix or finishing suite—can access the large dailies/transcodes from our ingest station with minimal downtime. It’s hugely beneficial.”
Using Avid NEXIS for an OB production, Video Europe deployed Avid NEXIS | E4 at UK music festival, Latitude. “We required a reliable shared storage environment to handle the demands of a fast-turnaround, multi-camera live production,” said Ollie Stratton, Engineer at Video Europe. “Working with mixed formats meant the workflow needed to be resilient to handle whatever was thrown at it. The combination of Media Composer® and the Avid NEXIS storage environment was a perfect match for this on-site deployment.”
