Why add more storage islands to your sea of media? With Avid NEXIS | PRO, you can expand your raw storage capacity from 40 TB up to now 160 TB. Connect up to four Avid NEXIS | PRO engines together for maximum capacity and bandwidth. Your valuable assets will be protected, available, and within easy reach through a centralized media hub.
Boost your bandwidth
Need more power for 4K/UHD, color grading, and finishing workflows?

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.
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.

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, 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.
