INTELLIGENT MEDIA STORAGE AT THE HEART OF PRODUCTION
Storage plays a major part in any production chain. Avid’s users worldwide are fully exploiting what the growing family of intelligent media storage – including the latest addition, Avid NEXIS – can do in conjunction with Avid’s range of creative tools, as well as many third party applications such as Adobe Premiere Pro CC, Apple FCP-X, Grass Valley EDIUS and Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve.
The increased level of global production has created a demand for more efficient and reliable workflows. These can be provided through the combination of creation and finishing systems with high-capacity, extremely reliable and easily accessible storage. Many post-production houses already use sophisticated media asset management (MAM) systems to manage both material and productions. This is the glue that secures a workflow. When combined with a central storage system MAM greatly aids increasingly complex production schedules, enabling facilities to work on multiple shows at the same time.
Because systems such as Avid NEXIS empower teams across the entire production, projects can move in parallel and be completed faster. In addition, Avid’s software defined storage systems scale both in capacity and performance to meet the most demanding of production needs.
