Migrate to Avid NEXIS with ease

Got content on Avid ISIS shared storage that you'd like to move to Avid NEXIS? The Avid NEXIS Data Migration Utility—available now for both Mac and Windows—makes the process quick and easy, enabling media and multiple workspaces to be copied from Avid ISIS to Avid NEXIS. Or from one Avid NEXIS to another. You can even use multiple computers to migrate unique workspaces in parallel, saving tons of time.

Integrate the latest Apple products into your workflow

With support for macOS Mojave, you can now mount Avid NEXIS workspaces from any computer running Apple’s latest OS, giving you more workstation flexibility with the latest MacBooks, Mac Pro, and iMacs. Connect to any Avid NEXIS system to find and access the projects and media you need.

Monitor Avid NEXIS using SNMP

With new support for SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol), you can now monitor your Avid NEXIS shared storage, embedded System Director, and related system events more easily and effectively. Monitor system usage and performance in real time. And get simpler integration into enterprise-wide management systems.

Manage your system more efficiently

With new multi-select enhancements made to the Avid NEXIS Management Console, you can now edit settings and configure your system much faster than before. Make bulk changes to multiple items simultaneously. Select any number of parameters to update workspaces, user access, groups, storage groups, or storage engines in one fell swoop. You can even select or deselect all settings to accelerate your actions.

Get greater compatibility and security

Avid NEXIS now supports CentOS 7.5, providing extended connectivity and integration with MediaCentral and third-party applications that run on this open source Linux platform.

Boost your bandwidth

Need more power for 4K/UHD, color grading, and finishing workflows? With new support for 40Gb Ethernet client connections and high-performance storage groups that deliver up to an astounding 600 MB/s of bandwidth per Media Pack (up from 400 MB/s), you gain up to a 50% increase in performance so you can get more done—faster. Need more power? Connect up to four Avid NEXIS | PRO engines together and ramp up performance with up to 2.4 GB/s of bandwidth.

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 27 streams of DNxHR-encoded 4K media at high quality when running four Avid NEXIS | PRO engines to support even the most bandwidth-intensive workflows. Or enable 130 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. It’s ideal for using across a number of audio-only and audio/video workflows, specifically for small to mid-sized audio post production.

Accelerate workflows

Bring value to your business

Can you find the footage you need? Do you constantly plug and unplug drives to share files across multiple workstations? How can you turn around projects faster and get more work? Powered by its unique Avid NEXIS | FS file system, Avid NEXIS | PRO makes it easy to manage and share media and collaborate in real time, so you can accelerate production. Deliver your best work—on time and on budget. It’s the smartest way to streamline your entire workflow.

Create and edit with power

Don’t let sluggish systems and bandwidth bottlenecks slow you down. Avid NEXIS | PRO delivers real-time SD, HD, 2K, and 4K media performance and streaming in even the most editing-intensive environments. And when you need more throughput to support more demanding high-res projects and collaboration, simply connect up to four Avid NEXIS | PRO engines together to boost your bandwidth—now up to 2.4 GB/s.

Collaborate in real time

Put an end to the storage sharing and media-copying shuffle of using individual USB, FireWire, eSATA, and Thunderbolt drives. With Avid NEXIS | PRO, up to 24 editors, assistants, loggers, and other contributors can access media at the same time. It’s the only shared storage technology deployed in over 3,000 production environments that provides a highly protected, real-time collaborative editorial workflow.

Adapt quickly to unpredictable changes

When projects or business needs change, Avid NEXIS | PRO can be flexibly reconfigured on the fly without impacting production. Intuitive software tools enable you to reallocate bandwidth, add or remove storage capacity, dynamically resize workspaces, and increase or decrease media protection quickly—all without any downtime or impact to teams.

Work with the tools you want

No need to ditch your favorite tools to collaborate. Avid NEXIS | PRO works with a variety of Avid and third-party editing tools, including Media Composer | Ultimate, Pro Tools, Adobe Premiere, Grass Valley EDIUS, and Apple Final Cut Pro. And it’s easy to integrate with many media asset management systems too, including Interplay | Production and Pronology.

Store and protect your media

Get real reliable protection

Your content is your goldmine. That’s why Avid NEXIS | PRO is built to safeguard your media in the event that one or even two drives go down, enabling you to retain real-time performance, with automatic drive rebuild. And because the file system is media-aware, it rebuilds only your actual stored assets—not the entire capacity of the disk, bit-for-bit—so repair times are radically faster.
