Avid has introduced its Avid NEXIS E5 NL nearline storage solution for managing media across online, nearline, and archive storage.

It includes a new web-based Avid NEXIS management console app for managing, controlling and monitoring Avid NEXIS installations and can be accessed through MediaCentral Cloud UX or Media Composer and also integrates with MediaCentral | Production Management, MediaCentral | Asset Management, and MediaCentral | Editorial Management.

“Managing multiple storage systems from multiple vendors is costly, time-consuming, and results in slow, unreliable and inefficient workflows,” said Dana Ruzicka, Chief Product Officer at Avid. “With the addition of Avid NEXIS | E5 NL, Avid NEXIS offers customers a comprehensive range of media-optimized storage solutions, from nearline to very high-performance all flash SSD storage, all under one storage architecture and one file system, all with the hallmark scalability, redundancy, and reliability of Avid NEXIS.”

Avid says that NEXIS | E5 NL “streamlines the workflow between active and non-active assets, allowing media organisations to park assets and 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 virtualisable pool of storage. Also other Avid NEXIS Enterprise engines can be integrated into a single storage pool and the storage can be partitioned for better archival organisation.

It will be available in May.
