Interplay | Transfer

Important: Please note that while Interplay | Transfer will continue to be marketed for the time being, it will be replaced in the coming months by MediaCentral | Transfer—a new integrated MediaCentral service that enables teams to exchange high-resolution media with other workgroups, remote locations, and partner-integrated systems easily. Please check out the link to learn more or contact your account manager or reseller.


Interplay | Transfer manages processor-intensive media transfers to and from video servers and transcoding engines. Broadcasters and post-production facilities can exchange high-resolution media with other workgroups, remote locations, and partner-integrated systems.


  • Let Interplay | Transfer do the heavy lifting
  • Save space with intelligent file handling
  • Keep distractions to a minimum
  • Integrate industry-partner media and machines
  • Minimize delays with FrameChase™ editing
  • Edit straight from camera with tapeless I/O
  • Media can be transferred at rates up to 45 MB/s when configured for optimal performance within a workgroup. Background transfers offload processor-intensive transfers from busy editing systems.

  • Interplay | Transfer intelligently decomposes a sequence, identifies all referenced master clips, and transfers only the referenced media files, preventing redundant material from filling up storage.

  • Interplay | Transfer destinations are visible from the editing interface, so an editor doesn't need to leave a project to transfer a sequence. And Interplay | Transfer take place in the background, so editing is not interrupted.

  • With broad industry support for Interplay | Transfer application programming interfaces (APIs), facilities can add new production devices or file formats and share media seamlessly in a collaborative production environment.

  • Interplay | Transfer supports FrameChase editing when capturing MXF material from supported ingest devices, allowing editors to begin viewing and editing immediately after recording starts.

  • Interplay | Transfer moves material captured in supported file formats directly to an Avid Interplay workgroup, or to connected editing systems.
