Keeping up with the increasing demand for quality content isn’t easy. Tight deadlines, distributed teams, changing audience behavior all add to the challenge. At Avid, we are always searching for ways to develop and refine our solutions to help you meet your content needs. That’s why we created MediaCentral | Acquire to provide secure, real-time remote media ingest control to make your workflows easier, faster, and more collaborative.

Available as an app in the web-based MediaCentral | Cloud UX, MediaCentral | Acquire enables production teams to gain instant access to recorded media, even when it is still being ingested. You can preview incoming feeds, schedule media ingest in real time, record, view media while it is being ingested, and securely control more ingest sources remotely from anywhere.

“Media companies face increasing competition for viewers and continued pressure to quickly and efficiently deliver more compelling content,” says David Colantuoni, Avid’s Vice President of Product Management for Video and Media Solutions. “MediaCentral is the industry’s leading platform for enterprise content creation.
