Finish 4K faster—just added
With the new 9.6 TB and 19.2 TB SSD Media Packs available for Avid NEXIS | E2 engines, you get up to 8x faster read speeds and the reliability you need to handle and accelerate bandwidth-intensive high-res finishing workflows. You can even manage a hybrid Avid NEXIS deployment, with hard disks and SSD in the same system to handle both 4K mastering and shared storage workflows in one.
Go even bigger—just added
Avid NEXIS now offers new 100 TB HDD Media Packs (in addition to the 20 TB and 60 TB offerings), providing even greater capacity to handle your ever-expanding media library—all within the same system footprint. Each Avid NEXIS | E2 engine can house a maximum capacity of 100 TB. Each E4 engine can house up to 200 TB, and an E5 engine can house up to 800 TB. Up to a total of 4.8 PB of raw storage in a multi-engine Avid NEXIS system.
Gain more flexibility—just added
Using media mirroring to protect high-value content? In addition to providing dual disk mirroring, which protects against the failure of any five drives, you can now choose to mirror media with single disk protection*. This gives you the option of having more usable storage space, while being protected against the failure of any three drives. In addition, Microsoft Windows Server 2016 can now connect to Avid NEXIS and mount workspaces, expanding your client choices.
* Please note that media mirroring is not supported with Avid NEXIS | E2 SSD engines.
Boost your bandwidth
Need more power for 4K/UHD, color grading, and finishing workflows? With new high-performance storage groups (HPSGs) that deliver up to an astounding 600 MB/s bandwidth per Media Pack with E4 and/or E2 engines (up from 400 MB/s), you gain up to a 50% increase in performance so you can get more done—faster. More than 20 GB/s of bandwidth in a single Avid NEXIS system. It’s ideal for online editing workflows, providing the throughput you need to handle full resolution media.
Ramp up production
With the increase in bandwidth speed, you can create and deliver higher volumes of high-res content more easily. Play back over 300 streams of DNxHR-encoded 4K media at high quality to support even the most bandwidth-intensive workflows. Or enable over 1,500 streams of DNxHR-LB-encoded 4K media.
Connect Pro Tools teams together
With new support for Pro Tools, audio teams can now connect into the industry’s most efficient media production environment, share projects, and collaborate, eliminating the time wasted moving files between systems while speeding up turnaround time. In addition to its extensive video post and broadcast workflows, Avid NEXIS can be used across audio-only and audio/video workflows—specifically for small to mid-sized audio post production and small broadcast.
