  • Avid NEXIS is designed to accelerate online and nearline production, giving teams easy on-demand access to a shared pool of storage—scalable up to 2.88 PB of capacity and an astounding 28.8 GB/s of bandwidth—that can be quickly provisioned and repurposed. Tailor and tune each workspace’s capacity, performance, and drive protection to the project and client. Conveniently manage the system through a web interface or management APIs. And easily scale it to accommodate the smallest video or audio teams, to the largest media enterprises.

  • Why waste time and money piecing together a workflow that may change months down the line? Avid NEXIS is built for the MediaCentral Platform, so it easily integrates with your existing Avid and third-party platform applications and services. And its scale-out storage architecture enables you to mix and match components to meet your needs and budget now and in the future. Upgrade capacity and bandwidth as your needs grow. And add redundancy when higher availability is required.

  • Media production is unpredictable. With Avid NEXIS, you can make changes dynamically, without disruption or downtime. Give critical projects and high-priority teams maximum performance to shared assets while throttling back on less important workflows. Enable remote and collaborative workflows with Media Composer | Cloud Remote and MediaCentral | UX. Scale capacity and bandwidth linearly to keep large productions moving. And easily expand your workflow to new platform applications and services.

  • All Avid NEXIS systems are powered by a common, unique file system at their core—NEXIS | FS. This highly intelligent, scalable file system delivers the unrivaled industry-trusted performance and reliability today’s media production demands. And it empowers your production with the bulletproof security, fail-safe disk protection, high availability, workspace flexibility, and open extensibility you and your business need to succeed.
