The Faculty of Arts and Creative Industries at Middlesex University has invested in Avid NEXIS, a software-defined storage platform designed specifically for storing and managing media. Powered by the MediaCentral Platform, Avid NEXIS provides the performance and scalability that the faculty needs to support the expanding department and prepare graduates for success in the media industries.

The newly formed faculty offers a range of undergraduate and post-graduate courses ranging from VFX, game design, film, TVP to graphics and photography, to name a few. Replacing an aging storage system, the faculty, and its wide range of stake holders, has invested in Avid NEXIS | E4 and Avid NEXIS | E2 systems, with the addition of a System Director Appliance, for the flexibility to support the expanding and varied needs of the media asset management used by students and staff alike.

“With Avid NEXIS we have a reliable, high-performance and scalable central storage platform to support our curriculum,” said Daniel Sosnowski, Faculty Technical Manager at Middlesex University. “Avid NEXIS has received an overwhelmingly positive response from the industry and will now offer our students first-hand experience using systems that mirrors real-world production facilities, dramatically increasing their employability potential.”
