New workflows accelerate speed, collaboration and efficiency, available to everyone—from small editorial teams to global media enterprises; Post bundles start at under $20K complete with storage, editing, I/O and media management

AMSTERDAM, the Netherlands, Sept. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IBC (Hall 7, Booth #J20) — Avid® (Nasdaq:AVID), a leading global media technology provider for the creation, distribution, and monetization of media assets for global media organizations, enterprise users and individual creative professionals, today introduced new MediaCentral® solutions for post production.  Integrating industry-leading Media Composer® video editing software with a new cutting-edge collaborative asset management module, new video I/O hardware, Avid NEXIS® software-defined storage, MediaCentral for Post is a scalable solution for small and mid-sized creative teams to enhance collaboration and deliver their best work faster, as well as working more efficiently with 4K and other demanding formats.

"The world's most successful editors and media organizations have relied on Avid for nearly three decades to deliver the film and television programming we all know and love —and the continuous feedback from our user community has culminated in the next generation MediaCentral production suite," said Dana Ruzicka, Vice President and Chief Product Officer, Avid. "While others have tried to mimic our feature set, Avid invented collaboration for editors over 20 years ago with bin locking and project sharing. But editing workflows have moved well beyond bin locking.  Our next-generation end-to-end post production system extends collaboration to accommodate modern post production workflows.  We've worked with the industry's top editors to develop next generation collaborative workflow and we've taken the entire end-to-end post production workflow to a new level with MediaCentral for Post — with integrated storage, editing, I/O acceleration, and media management."
