Avid has unveiled the new Avid Nexis at this year’s Nabshow in Las Vegas, a software-defined storage platform designed for storing and managing media. 


Avid says Nexis enables fully virtualized storage so users can adjust storage capacity mid-project, without disrupting workflows. 


Powered by the Avid Media Central platform, Avid says Nexis has been designed to serve the smallest production teams as well as large media enterprises and says it is the only storage platform “built with the flexibility to grow with customers at every stage of their business.”


"Avid created the category of real-time collaborative shared storage and media networking with Avid ISIS and Unity, and now with Avid Nexis, we have reimagined the possibilities of shared storage for media production," said Avid Chairman, President and CEO, Louis Hernandez, Jr. "Avid NEXIS provides dynamic virtualization, adaptive protection, and media-savvy collaboration so media professionals and creative teams can share and access media assets reliably from anywhere without overinvesting in infrastructure. Leveraging the power of the Avid MediaCentral Platform, Avid NEXIS provides customers the reliability they need today, the scalability for tomorrow, and the technology to take media production to the next level."


Avid NEXIS works with the top media creation applications, including Media Composer, Pro Tools, Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, Grass Valley EDIUS, and others.


Avid says the “unique modularity” of Avid Nexis “enables teams to mix and match storage engines and elastically scale capacity from as little as 20 TB to over 1.4 PB in a single system, without any interruption in service or down time.”


The Avid NEXIS family is expected to be available in Q2 2016.
