The addition of this high-density on-premises solution to the Avid NEXIS family—the world’s first software-defined storage platform for media—allows Avid customers to seamlessly and efficiently manage media across all their online, nearline, and archive storage resources.
Avid NEXIS | E5 NL is tightly integrated into Avid media applications, services and workflows, and includes a new web-based Avid NEXIS management console for managing, controlling and monitoring Avid NEXIS installations. Avid NEXIS l E5 NL can be easily accessed through MediaCentral® | Cloud UX or Media Composer® and also integrates with MediaCentral | Production Management, MediaCentral | Asset Management, and MediaCentral | Editorial Management to drive collaboration, including advanced features such as project and bin sharing. Extending the Avid NEXIS | FS (file system) to a secondary storage tier makes it easy to search for, find and import media, enabling users to locate content distributed throughout their operations more quickly and efficiently.
Ideally suited for project parking, staging workflows and proxy archive, Avid NEXIS | E5 NL streamlines the workflow between active and non-active assets, allowing media organizations to park assets as well as completed projects on high-density nearline storage, and keep them within easy reach for rediscovery and reuse. Up to eight Avid NEXIS | E5 NL engines can be integrated as one virtualizable pool of storage, making content and associated projects and bins more accessible. In addition, other Avid NEXIS Enterprise engines can be integrated into a single storage system that is partitioned for better archival organization.
