Avid NEXIS software-defined storage platform released
Avid has announced that Avid NEXIS, claimed to be the industry’s first and only software-defined storage platform specifically designed for storing and managing media, is now available. The platform enables fully virtualised storage so media organisations can adjust storage capacity mid-project, without disrupting workflows.
Powered by the Avid MediaCentral Platform, Avid NEXIS delivers media storage flexibility, scalability, and control for both Avid-based and third-party workflows. Designed to serve the smallest production teams as powerfully as the largest media enterprises, it’s claimed to be the only storage platform built with the flexibility to grow with customers at every stage of their business – fulfilling a key tenet of Avid Everywhere.
NEXIS works with all top media creation applications, including Media Composer, Pro Tools, Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, Grass Valley EDIUS, and many more. Production teams can quickly access a shared pool of virtualised storage resources, which dramatically increases their efficiency.
“We are thrilled about the versatility of the new Avid NEXIS storage platform,” said Jon Mauldin, vice president Technology at FotoKem NLS. “Avid has done a great job of adding in the flexibility needed for the many different types of productions that access a single storage system. We are very excited to offer this new technology to our clients.”
