Get the industry-proven performance and reliability of ISIS in a more affordable, entry-level storage system designed for independent editors, audio post pros, and smaller post-production houses. ISIS | 1000 offers real-time editorial collaboration and the bandwidth you need to accelerate any media workflow. Plus, advanced file management enables you to work with Avid and third-party systems, with the data protection, flexibility, and scalability only Avid can deliver.

Get the power and reliability of ISIS within easy reach

Over 3,000 of the world’s top broadcast and post-production studios have made ISIS their storage solution of choice. Now, with ISIS | 1000, you get the proven performance, reliability, and scalability of ISIS in a more affordable, easy-to-use system that’s designed to speed up editorial efficiency, while protecting your assets. Connect multiple editors simultaneously for real-time collaboration. Keep production moving with automatic media-aware drive repairs. And quadruple your storage capacity and bandwidth easily as your business grows.

Maximize efficiency—your way

As a component of the Avid MediaCentral Platform, ISIS | 1000 is designed to be used with both Avid and third-party editing and asset management tools* you know and love. Accelerate your workflow, whether using Media Composer, Pro Tools, Apple Final Cut Pro, or Adobe Premiere. And manage media through easy integration with third-party asset management software. Plus, ISIS | 1000 works with inexpensive NETGEAR and Dell switches, eliminating the need for costly and complex network switches.

Experience simplicity with exceptional performance

Forget the fear of managing a sophisticated, network-enabled media storage and sharing system. ISIS | 1000 makes system set-up and management easy, so you can focus on your work—not on becoming an IT expert. Plus, its self-balancing, distributed architecture and metadata management intelligently handles data redistribution, media protection, and other tasks automatically, so you get predictable performance under all load conditions.

Maximize your business potential

Unlike inexpensive storage drives that can only be used with one… workstation… at… a… time, greatly slowing down productivity when editing media, ISIS | 1000 puts the “flow” back in your workflow, enabling up to 24 contributors to access and share the same assets simultaneously, greatly accelerating production. Plus, its rock-solid data protection technology prevents media loss, so you can confidently complete projects faster, boost your reputation, and win more of the work you want.

* Please note that Interplay family products are not currently supported.


Bring value to your editorial workflow

How safe is your media? Are you constantly unplugging and re-plugging in drives to share assets across multiple workstations? What can you do to maximize your efficiency and get more of the work you want? By adding affordable ISIS | 1000 shared storage to your workflow, you can safeguard your media, connect up to 24 workstations simultaneously, use your favorite editing and asset management tools, and collaborate in real time to accelerate production and deliver your best work—on time and on budget. It’s the most cost-effective investment you can make to grow your business—and reputation.

Use Premiere, Final Cut, and other third-party products

No need to ditch your favorite editing and asset management tools to accelerate your workflow. ISIS | 1000 enables real-time editorial collaboration using what you have, whether you edit in Adobe Premiere, Apple Final Cut Pro, or Media Composer. And it’s easy to integrate with third-party asset management systems too.

Experience the Avid advantage

While you don’t need an Avid product to use ISIS | 1000, you gain several benefits if you do. With Media Composer, you can share bins and projects with other Media Composer editors to collaborate on sequences, so you don’t have to copy files or start from scratch. If you’re working on video projects in Pro Tools, you can store audio and video on ISIS | 1000 to protect and optimize your media. ISIS | 1000 also uses Avid Intelligent Architecture to deliver the best performance, efficiency, and reliability when used with Media Composer and Pro Tools.

Get real protection you can rely on

Protect your media with storage trusted by an industry. With its high-quality hardware and patented data distribution/redistribution technology, ISIS | 1000 protects your data like no other, safeguarding 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 protection system is media-aware, rebuilding only your actual stored assets instead of the entire capacity of the disk, bit-for-bit, repair times are radically faster—especially when drives aren’t at full capacity.

Experience exceptional performance

ISIS | 1000 empowers every contributor across the entire production, enabling projects to move in parallel and be completed faster. Through patented technology, ISIS | 1000 ensures client media due times, delivering incomparable, predictable performance and more media streams per ISIS Storage Engine in even the most editing-intensive environments. And you can quadruple your bandwidth—from 300 MB/s up to 1,200 MB/s—by employing up to four Engines.

Scale your system as your business grows

Why add more storage islands to your sea of media? With ISIS | 1000, you can expand your raw storage capacity from 20 TB up to 80 TB, in 20 TB increments, adding extra ISIS Storage Engines as needed. Connect up to four Engines together for maximum capacity and bandwidth, enabling you to keep your valuable assets protected, available, and within easy reach through a centralized media hub.

Collaborate in real time

ISIS | 1000 puts an end to the storage sharing and media copying shuffle of using individual USB, FireWire, eSATA, and Thunderbolt drives, allowing up to 24 editors, assistants, loggers, and other contributors to access media at the same time. It’s the only online shared storage system that provides a scalable, highly protected, real-time collaborative editorial workflow at an attractive low price point.

Access and share high-res, HD, and other media

With support for real-time SD, HD, 2K, and 4K media performance, ISIS | 1000 is the ideal hub for the modern yet budget-minded media production workflow. And when you need more throughput power to support the most demanding high-resolution projects and collaborations, you can increase bandwidth up to 1,200 MB/s by adding more Storage Engines.
