Product Highlights

Without fear of accidentally overwriting someone else’s work. Gain more time to spend focusing on telling a great story—and less time searching for and shuttling media.

With its advanced architecture, intelligent file system, high bandwidth, and automation abilities, Avid NEXIS | PRO delivers unrivaled media performance with up to 2.4 GB/s of bandwidth speed, enabling projects to move in parallel, so you can turn around more projects faster. No matter what editing and media asset management tools you use.

When your reputation and business are on the line, Avid NEXIS | PRO protects and secures your media like no other. The system is built on the same technology trusted by thousands of top broadcasters and post-production studios. From its bulletproof security privileges, to fail-safe disk protection with automatic drive rebuild, you can rest assured that your content is safe. And should you need it, tech experts are available around the clock to help.


New Features


Increase your storage capacity
Why add more storage islands to your sea of media? With Avid NEXIS | PRO, you can expand your raw storage capacity from 40 TB up to now 160 TB. Connect up to four Avid NEXIS | PRO engines together for maximum capacity and bandwidth. Your valuable assets will be protected, available, and within easy reach through a centralized media hub.


Boost your bandwidth
Need more power for 4K/UHD, color grading, and finishing workflows? With new high-performance storage groups that deliver up to an astounding 600 MB/s of bandwidth per Media Pack (up from 400 MB/s), you gain up to a 50% increase in performance so you can get more done—faster. Need more power? Connect up to four Avid NEXIS | PRO engines together and ramp up performance with up to 2.4 GB/s of bandwidth.


Ramp up production
With the increase in bandwidth speed, you can create and deliver higher volumes of high-res content more easily. Play back over 27 streams of DNxHR-encoded 4K media at high quality when running four Avid NEXIS | PRO engines to support even the most bandwidth-intensive workflows. Or enable 130 streams of DNxHR-LB-encoded 4K media.


Connect Pro Tools teams together
With new support for Pro Tools, audio teams can now connect into the industry’s most efficient media production environment, share projects, and collaborate, eliminating the time wasted moving files between systems while speeding up turnaround time. It’s ideal for using across a number of audio-only and audio/video workflows, specifically for small to mid-sized audio post production.


Accelerate Workflows


Bring value to your business
Can you find the footage you need? Do you constantly plug and unplug drives to share files across multiple workstations? How can you turn around projects faster and get more work? Powered by its unique Avid NEXIS | FS file system, Avid NEXIS | PRO makes it easy to manage and share media and collaborate in real time, so you can accelerate production. Deliver your best work—on time and on budget. It’s the smartest way to streamline your entire workflow.


Create and edit with power
Don’t let sluggish systems and bandwidth bottlenecks slow you down. Avid NEXIS | PRO delivers real-time SD, HD, 2K, and 4K media performance and streaming in even the most editing-intensive environments. And when you need more throughput to support more demanding high-res projects and collaboration, simply connect up to four Avid NEXIS | PRO engines together to boost your bandwidth—now up to 2.4 GB/s.


Collaborate in real time
Put an end to the storage sharing and media-copying shuffle of using individual USB, FireWire, eSATA, and Thunderbolt drives. With Avid NEXIS | PRO, up to 24 editors, assistants, loggers, and other contributors can access media at the same time. It’s the only shared storage technology deployed in over 3,000 production environments that provides a highly protected, real-time collaborative editorial workflow.


Adapt quickly to unpredictable changes
When projects or business needs change, Avid NEXIS | PRO can be flexibly reconfigured on the fly without impacting production. Intuitive software tools enable you to reallocate bandwidth, add or remove storage capacity, dynamically resize workspaces, and increase or decrease media protection quickly—all without any downtime or impact to teams.


Work with the tools you want
No need to ditch your favorite tools to collaborate. Avid NEXIS | PRO works with a variety of Avid and third-party editing tools, including Media Composer, Pro Tools, Adobe Premiere, Grass Valley EDIUS, and Apple Final Cut Pro. And it’s easy to integrate with many media asset management systems too, including Interplay | Production and Pronology.


Store and protect your media


Get real reliable protection
Your content is your goldmine. That’s why Avid NEXIS | PRO is built to safeguard your media in the event that one or even two drives go down, enabling you to retain real-time performance, with automatic drive rebuild. And because the file system is media-aware, it rebuilds only your actual stored assets—not the entire capacity of the disk, bit-for-bit—so repair times are radically faster.


Get expert help when you need it
When things don’t go as expected, our Customer Care team can bring you peace of mind. Get troubleshooting help, advice, and more with access to professional Avid Support, available through an annual subscription or on a per-incident basis.
