Speed up your editorial workflow

Share projects and media with everyone

If you use Media Composer, you already know the benefits of sharing projects and bins. MediaCentral | Editorial Management takes this a big step further, enabling you to access shared projects, bins, and media using MediaCentral | Cloud UX—on practically any desktop, laptop, or mobile device, or directly in your editing application as a MediaCentral | Panel.

Find files fast

MediaCentral | Editorial Management makes it easy to locate the assets you need. Its built-in search and browse capabilities enable you to locate, view, log, and access video, audio, images, and other media in a variety of ways across Avid NEXIS or Avid NEXIS | PRO storage. You can also play video and audio content, get a closer look at the asset details, and mark any media as favorites.

Accelerate editing

For Media Composer and Adobe Premiere Pro editors, MediaCentral | Editorial Management makes it easy to create, manage, and search through shared Media Composer projects and bins—even if they’re not open—and add Avid NEXIS-stored media to their own bins. In addition, Media Composer editors can browse through non-Avid media and link source files to their bins, while Premiere editors can add Avid and non-Avid media to their bins.

Integrate MediaCentral into your editing app

No need to leave the comforts of your Media Composer or Adobe Premiere Pro editing window to search for media in MediaCentral. Just add the MediaCentral | Panel for Media Composer or MediaCentral | Panel for Adobe Premiere Pro CC and you can access MediaCentral right inside your editing application. Plus, because MediaCentral is an open platform, support for third-party editing software can be added.

Get access to new footage instantly

Need to turn around projects fast? Add the high-speed Avid FastServe | Ingest video server to your MediaCentral solution and you can immediately access newly ingested content—including 4K and 8K media—in as little as five seconds from the time of it being captured, giving you a jumpstart on creative editorial.

Coordinate tasks

MediaCentral | Editorial Management can manage millions of files and folders across Avid NEXIS or Avid NEXIS | PRO. This enables assistant editors to start prepping bins and projects and adding content from Avid NEXIS directly to Media Composer bins for the editor. You can also expand your team’s capabilities and streamline your production further with apps and services available for logging, archiving, phonetic searching, and more.

Set up, maintain, and expand with ease

Get easy set-up and maintenance

MediaCentral | Editorial Management is super easy to install and set up. All you need is a small server, workstation, or laptop to run its services, which provide extended “shared projects and bins” workflows. And because its user management and permissions control piggyback onto your current Avid NEXIS user settings, it requires no additional configuration or maintenance. Each team member only sees the workspaces to which they have access to in Avid NEXIS.

Design your own unique solution

Every post house’s needs and budget are different. That’s why MediaCentral | Editorial Management is fully customizable. Start small with a minimum set of features for a team of two, then add more apps, services, and other options to expand your capabilities. And when business really takes off, you can even upgrade to MediaCentral | Production Management to handle large and more complex post-production or broadcast workflows.
