Avid expands media storage capacity and performance with Avid NEXIS

New Avid NEXIS solutions are now available

Avid has announced new innovations for Avid NEXIS™ are now available. Powered by the MediaCentral® Platform, Avid NEXIS scalability enhancements now double the capacity of Avid NEXIS | Enterprise systems. Avid NEXIS supports up to 48 Media Packs across a single scale-out enterprise-class system, enabling customers to mix and match a combination of Avid NEXIS | E5, E4, and E2 engines, whether for new installations or integrated with their existing Avid ISIS® systems.


With this new release, customers can scale the Avid NEXIS system’s total capacity up to nearly 3 PB of total storage with up to 19.2 GB/seconds of bandwidth, capable of delivering 250 streams of Sony XAVC-Intra 59p UHD or more than 680 streams of DNxHD-220 media.


The new scale out features build upon the previously announced Avid NEXIS High Availability options—including the Avid NEXIS Redundant Storage Controller, Redundant System Director, and Redundant Networking—protect mission-critical productions against potential hardware performance issues. Avid NEXIS Media Mirror Protection protects an entire Avid NEXIS system against any five simultaneous disk failures, and even an entire engine failure.




“Media organizations need more robust storage infrastructure, greater reliability and control, and closer collaboration in order to create high-quality and engaging content”, has said Alan Hoff, vice president, Market Solutions, Avid. “These new innovations for Avid NEXIS deliver the most resilient storage system in the industry with unmatched scalability, together with high-availability options that address these needs and boost operational efficiency”.


“Our clients primarily use Avid editing solutions, but we need the versatility to offer alternative workflows”, has explained Ollie Stratton, technical consultant and head of Video Europe’s edit department. “The fact [that] [Avid] NEXIS has the ability to natively support Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro, and Black Magic’s DaVinci Resolve, is a real leap forward for flexible, open workflows”.
