For news, post, and sports production, AirSpeed | 5500 streamlines your entire workflow—from capture to playout. Eliminate time-consuming transcoding thanks to native support for a variety of media formats and codecs. And it integrates seamlessly with Avid and third-party newsroom, video, and broadcast control and editing systems. Choose the 2-channel model for smaller productions or the 4-channel system for more demanding, enterprise environments.
Open to your unique workflows
AirSpeed | 5500 runs on the Avid MediaCentral Platform, giving you easy workflow integration, unrivaled collaboration, and great versatility. Choose to use it with Interplay | Production asset management and Avid NEXIS shared storage—in your facility or in the cloud—with Avid and/or third-party systems, in a workgroup-connected environment, or as a standalone video server.
Get total flexibility
Thanks to its open architecture, you can work with your choice of editing software, automation control systems, and external hardware controllers, with the freedom to switch things up should your needs change.
Eliminate transcoding steps
Forget having to invest in costly converters. AirSpeed | 5500 has them built right into all of its channels, enabling you to record and play back both HD and SD baseband media in your preferred common format, such as XAVC Intra HD, XAVC-L, AVC-Intra HD, and AVC-LongG, eliminating extra transcoding steps.
Future-proof your workflow
Though it has the ruggedly dark and stylish looks of the AirSpeed 5000 server on the outside, AirSpeed | 5500 is designed around an advanced chipset that supports an extensive range of SD and HD operating points including XAVC Intra HD, XAVC-L, AVC-Intra HD, and AVC-LongG.
