The Avid MediaCentral Platform (MCP) includes a set of services required to support several different Avid Everywhere solutions. These products include MediaCentral | UX, Media Composer | Cloud, Interplay | MAM, Media Distribute and iNEWS. The ACSR Avid MediaCentral Platform (WG453) course will provide the 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 a MediaCentral deployment as an add-on to existing Interplay PAM/ISIS systems. This will be accomplished in three phases:
1. Understand the terminology used for the involved Avid products, methods and processes.
2. Discuss the architecture of how the required hardware components and software configurations come together to build a system to meet business requirements.
3. Integrate MediaCentral into an actual Avid workflow by building clustered MediaCentral servers in a workshop/lab environment, which are then tested and troubleshoot in a live production workflow.
