Avid has announced a new version of AvidMedia Composer | Distributed Processing that “significantly” speeds up content production by using adjacent computing resources to help creative teams keep up with the increasing demand for new content.

Media Composer | Distributed Processing enables editors to offload processor-intensive media creation workflow tasks to any available local computers, freeing up their Media Composer edit workstations. Media Composer | Distributed Processing is included with Media Composer | Enterprise software subscriptions.

Media Composer | Distributed Processing enables users to offload media encoding tasks with support for a variety of camera, video, and audio file formats and codecs.

Media Composer | Distributed Processing handles a media workflow’s most processor-intensive tasks—including transcode, consolidate, render, mixdown, and export—in a fraction of the time by coordinating “dispersed processing resources.” Multiple complex jobs can be set up to run in the background at any time—even overnight.

It also allows users to track, modify, monitor, prioritise, and filter jobs remotely through the web-based dashboard and new coordinator tools that give teams insight and access to distributed computer networks.

“Film and TV production teams all over the world are being tasked with creating more content faster than ever before to meet audience demand, and we’re excited to introduce processing capabilities that enable Media Composer users to overcome this challenge,” said Dave Colantuoni, Vice President of Product Management at Avid. “New features in Media Composer | Distributed Processing give users everything they need to accelerate workflows by reducing delays that result from running processor-intensive tasks, helping teams to work smarter, not harder.”
