World Wrestling Entertainment Tag Teams With Avid to Bring Pro Wrestling to Fans Worldwide
WWE is a global sports entertainment company headquartered in
"We can now edit and distribute all of our content seamlessly within the Avid environment," said
WWE's centralized workflow is comprised of solutions from the Avid Media Central Platform, which is made up of products and solutions from the Avid Media Suite, Storage Suite and Artist Suite. Content created in the field is funneled through WWE's central ingest department, stored on an Avid enterprise storage system, and made instantly available to all 140 Avid Media Composer® non-linear video editing software seats. With the ability to share files, and work in high or low resolutions, production teams can quickly start and turnaround projects.
The integrated Avid workflow also gives WWE the flexibility to repackage and repurpose content for various products, shows and countries. With Avid Interplay® | Production, international and domestic teams can work with the same files simultaneously, and enter rich metadata to facilitate subsequent media search and retrieval. The home video department and network originals teams can then easily find and work with the same media—without needing to re-ingest it.
WWE's new disaster recovery system will duplicate its core Avid storage and Interplay infrastructure in a virtualized environment at a remote location, with synchronization and management tools, including Interplay Virtual Media, Interplay | Transfer and Interplay | Archive. WWE is working with the Avid Professional Services team to design its workflows, commission, integrate and test the new system, and fine-tune it to WWE's needs, while Avid Worldwide Training is providing customized, on-site training.
"WWE is a shining example of how media organizations can build open, integrated workflows with the MediaCentral Platform to help them quickly and efficiently create, manage and deliver huge volumes of content, and get the maximum value out of their content," said
