Key benefits

Get unprecedented media access and reach

Media | Index provides unified search capabilities that seamlessly integrate with your existing Interplay | Production, Interplay | MAM, and iNEWS systems, enabling you to search for, preview, and move assets collaboratively across multiple local and remote databases—no matter where the media is stored. And because the engine leverages open source technology, you’ll be able to extend its powerful search capabilities to other MediaCentral Platform-enabled Avid and third-party products in the future.

Simplify search and sharing

Media | Index removes the complexities normally associated with remote access, enabling teams to search through and access the same media, collaboratively, whether assets are located in your facility or spread across facilities around the world. With open Elasticsearch technology at its core, Media | Index provides powerful, distributed, real-time search and analytics across your entire global media asset library, giving you better results in less time.

Strengthen your storytelling

With Media | Index, you can instantly preview any local or remote asset that matches your keyword search criteria (using media metadata), enabling you to see and hear how the clip or sequence fits into your story—regardless of its phase in the media asset lifecycle. And because the engine uses full text search and analytics, it can pinpoint the exact clips and sequences you want much more efficiently, so you can find the best content.

Access assets everywhere

Because Media | Index is a unified media indexing service that runs on the Avid MediaCentral Platform, you can search for, preview, manage, move, and interact with files and sequences in your organization’s entire media asset library from your desktop computer, laptop, or mobile device—regardless of where you are in the world.

Maximize your media workflow

Media | Index enables you to get more value out of multiple Interplay | Production, iNEWS, and Interplay | MAM system environments by making all media assets across your organization available instantly at your fingertips. And because it supports remote connectivity and real-time collaboration, you have the autonomy to get the media you want, when you want, wherever you want.
