New Avid NEXIS 2020 Collaborative Storage Unveiled for Today’s Demanding Media Workflows
“Avid NEXIS 2020 introduces deployment flexibility and openness that enables media creators to work from anywhere to produce high-quality content during these uncertain times with total confidence their business is backed by the most reliable, open and cost-effective media storage available today,” said
New Avid NEXIS 2020 features include “All-Mirror” high-availability engines to protect workflows against the widest range of conditions for failure, including network disruptions, disk loss or the loss of an entire engine. For time-sensitive broadcast news, enterprise post-production and live events, All-Mirror engines provide the highest level of redundancy at the lowest price point, ensuring teams will avoid workflow disruption and meet their deadlines.
Avid NEXIS 2020 also debuts with larger capacity drives that enable workflows to scale more substantially and cost-effectively. New 140 TB and 160 TB media packs provide higher density storage at a lower cost, raising the total storage capacity up to 40 percent per engine, while decreasing the dollars per terabyte to store, manage, and edit content. In addition to providing the industry’s first software-defined media storage, Avid NEXIS 2020 now offers even greater flexibility through storage tiering, which can secure media across a single pool of mixed resources, both on-premises and in the cloud, that can include flash, online, nearline and archive.
Since the introduction of Avid NEXIS four years ago, Avid’s focus on innovating purpose-built storage for media has made it the real-time collaborative open solution for thousands of post houses, broadcasters, studios and media creators. Tens of thousands of editors, producers, assistants, journalists and other end users source, build, share and store their stories across countless on-premises, cloud and hybrid workflows incorporating Avid NEXIS with a growing range of third-party creative tools and asset management tools including those from Adobe, Apple,
“Avid NEXIS is such a huge part of our success because its efficiencies, speed and flexibility—everything that this high-powered shared storage can give me—continue to be a competitive advantage for us,”
