Get the industry-proven performance and reliability of Avid virtualizable storage in a more affordable, entry-level professional shared storage system. Designed for independent editors, audio post pros, and smaller post-production houses, Avid NEXIS | PRO provides the high-speed performance you need to accelerate your workflow. Experience real-time editorial collaboration. Work with your choice of Avid and third-party systems. And get the data protection, flexibility, and scalability only Avid can deliver.
- Get Avid shared storage power within easy reach
- Over 3,000 of the world’s top broadcast and post-production studios have made Avid their storage solution of choice. Now you can get the proven performance of Avid virtualizable storage in a more affordable system that speeds up editorial efficiency. Unlike inexpensive storage drives that can only be used with one workstation at a time—a huge bottleneck to your productivity—Avid NEXIS | PRO puts the “flow” back in your workflow, enabling up to 24 contributors to share the same assets simultaneously for real-time collaboration.
- Experience simplicity with exceptional performance
- Forget the fear of managing a complex, network-enabled media storage and sharing system. Avid NEXIS | PRO makes system set-up and management easy, so you can focus on your work. Not on becoming an IT expert. Plus, its self-balancing, distributed architecture and metadata management intelligently handles data redistribution, media protection, and other tasks automatically. That means you get predictable performance under all load conditions.
- Get reliable protection
- Your reputation is only as good as the assets you deliver. Avid NEXIS | PRO can help protect both. Safeguard your media with protection for up to two simultaneous disk issues. Keep production moving with automatic media-aware drive repairs. And quadruple your storage capacity and bandwidth easily as your business—and reputation—grow.
- Experience the Avid advantage
- You can use Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, and other third-party products with Avid NEXIS | PRO. But you’ll gain many benefits when you use it with an Avid product. Share bins and projects with other Media Composer editors to collaborate on sequences. No need to copy files or start from scratch. And protect and optimize media delivery when used with Pro Tools.
