WG453 ACSR Interplay Central Services

Length

Suggested length: 5 days

Overview

Interplay Central Services (ICS) are a set of services required to support several different Avid Integrated Media Enterprise (IME) solutions. These products include Interplay Central, Interplay Sphere, Interplay MAM, Interplay Pulse and Avid iNEWs. ICS runs under the Linux operating system. The WG453 provides installation, configuration and troubleshooting skills for setting up single and clustered Linux servers to deploy these various solutions on the latest supported hardware.

Working in small teams, students will benefit from extensive hands-on training in a lab environment, building an ICS deployment as an add-on to existing Interplay PAM/ISIS systems. This will be accomplished in three phases:

1.  Providing an understanding of the terminology used for the involved Avid products, methods and processes.

2.  Discussing the architecture of how the required hardware components and software configurations come together to build a system to meet your or your customers requirements.

3.  Integrating ICS into an actual Avid workflow by building clustered ICS servers in a workshop/lab environment which you can then test and troubleshoot in live production workflow.
