3 days training plus a 1-day practical Certification exam


The Avid ACSR MediaCentral | Asset Management System Support (MAM470) course is a practical hands-on course to teach students how to install a MediaCentral | Asset Management 2017.1 system from scratch, as well as the installation of selected additional kits. This includes also the setup of MS SQL. Each student will install and setup his/her own MediaCentral | Asset Management system on a virtual server. The course also covers basic configuration of the core system and the kits.

In addition to the basic installation of a core system, the course will include the building of connections to a transcoding system, a MediaCentral | Production system and a HSM system. Integrating with a pre-installed MediaCentral Platform and using MediaCentral | UX as GUI for the MediaCentral | Asset Management system (incl. Media | Index) is also covered.

Finally, students will extend their installed systems to a dual-server setup. Students will learn how to move services between machines. Related concepts and scenarios are discussed.

Basic crash recovery of a multi-server MediaCentral | Asset Management system is addressed.

The course concludes with a full day practical certification exam on the final day requiring attendees to demonstrate their capability to install and configure a MediaCentral | Asset Management system.
