With the growth of streaming video services, traditional broadcast companies are looking for content to keep up. Most of those companies have started up their own on-demand app or service to compete and in most cases produce shows just for that service. With this revolution in media, problems naturally arise. Now that there is more content being sold, content creators are creating more content to sell and that amount of content is growing even for the smallest companies. Years ago when there weren't so many options for creators the content was controlled and maintained much easier. Since that is no longer the case Avid has created MediaCentral | Editorial Management to help these content creators maintain numerous projects anytime they want. A growth from Avid's MediaCentral faction, the Editorial Management system allows companies to not only maintain projects, but allows editors and other members of the content creation team to go into other projects and work with those projects as well. A fully collaborative integration where Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere Pro and work within. Avid's MediaCentral | Editorial Management is just another advancement from Avid that will help workflows for present and future content creators.

Collectively, these components are packaged as MediaCentral for Post. But what promises to be a real game-changer for Avid’s traditional post production customer base is a brand new element of the MediaCentral eco-system – MediaCentral | Editorial Management.
