Interplay | Production

Interplay | Production addresses a wide range of customer workflows and adds entirely new workgroup capabilities:

Accelerate Turnaround Time

Interplay | Production provides support for the new Media | Director option to simplify and speed up file-based workflows. Media | Director orchestrates the process of ingesting media into production and nearline storage, enabling you to start editing immediately and accelerate project turnaround. Prep an entire day’s worth of footage quickly and accurately by simply initiating media parking, transcoding, and check-in through the intuitive interface, which offers complete drag-and-drop ease.

Access Files Remotely from Everywhere

With support for the new Media | Index option, you can accelerate and extend file search across multiple Interplay | Production systems—regardless of where the media is stored. This optimized, high-performance search engine enables you to find and preview clips and sequences instantly across multiple Interplay databases—even across multiple global facilities—and serves as the linchpin of the entire collaborative process.

Media Composer | Cloud Mac Support

Media Composer | Cloud (formerly Interplay Sphere) upload support is extended to the Mac platform and adds 1080p23.98 support, giving remote editors and contributors the same creative power and experience as in the facility.

Avid MediaCentral | UX Licenses Included

The acclaimed Avid MediaCentral | UX (formerly Interplay Central) web-based toolset enables flexible media review, annotation, logging, shot-listing, basic editing, and pre-planning from everywhere, plus simplifies deployment with single-point licensing and administration. Plus, you can scale your system as needed. Expand from a basic 5-seat Interplay | Production configuration to up to 330 connected users. Or upgrade to an Avid MediaCentral | UX Advance license and extend your connections to Interplay | Production, iNEWS, and Interplay | MAM.

Multicam Project Support

Logging and sequence generation of Multicam projects can be done from anywhere through the browser-based MediaCentral | UX interface, and the resultant composited video stream can be displayed as either multi- or single-angle directly in the UI player window, bringing new time savings and efficiencies to reality television, TV studio entertainment, and similar production workflows.

Messaging with Deep Links

Workgroup members can use the Interplay | Production messaging system to exchange asset links and notes on assets throughout the workgroup and directly to the editing desktop, speeding pre-planning, review, and approval.

Multiplatform Distribution with Media | Distribute

Media | Distribute (formerly Interplay Pulse) unifies and simplifies content distribution to a diverse community of channels and devices through workflow automation, in the right format for each.

Project Sync

A closer relationship between the Media Composer | Software bin structure and the Interplay | Production directory structure enables production facilities to work similarly to maintain the shared bins/projects.

Multi-instance Transcode

Up to four instances of Interplay | Transcode may be run on the same server, greatly improving overall performance of manual and automated background transcoding and mixdown.

64-bit Engine and Media Indexer

64-bit Interplay | Engine and Media Indexer addresses expanding workgroup asset counts with support for 10 million files and delivers greater performance for installations of every size.
