One of the biggest stories coming out of IBC this week is the evolution of Avid Everywhere into open standards and technologies that fully support other NLEs beyond Media Composer. Avid DNxIO, their new 4K I/O box; Avid ISIS, the breakthrough, low cost, affordable shared video storage solution; and their award winning Interplay|MAM asset management system; all now support Adobe Premiere Pro & After Effects, Apple Final Cut Pro X, Grasss Valley Edius Workgroups and Davinici Resolve.

Avid embraces Adobe, Apple in push to expand storage market opportunities
Avid continues to expand its “Avid Everywhere” concept and the latest big move announced at IBC this week was the support of Adobe Premier Pro and Apple Final Cut Pro on the Avid Interplay media asset management system. “It’s a big deal because both Apple and Adobe can run as optimized, first-class citizens on our Avid ISIS storage systems,” says Dana Ruzicka, Avid, vice president and chief product officer. “It makes the magic of ISIS realtime collaboration that was previously only available to Avid users available to the entire marketplace.”
That openness will be a big lift for the Avid ISIS 1000 shared storage system as Adobe and Apple editing users will be able to tie their editing systems to an entry-level storage system that supports up to 24 users working via 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections to a single engine that can have up to 20 TB of storage. And for organizations that have larger production and post-production teams the editors will be able to work with the editing platform of choice.
“The first application you use tends to be the one you bond with so now editors can use whatever tools they want,” adds Ruzicka. read more...
