Avid NEXIS | PRO Wins the Praise of Activ’Company at the Eurosatory Trade Show

On the occasion of the 25th Eurosatory international trade show in Villepinte, near Paris – France, on the theme of defense and security, the communications agency Activ’Company specializing in operational marketing and communications entrusted DID Technology and its teams with implementing an entire post-production system at the trade show. The aim was to make this workspace as comfortable and productive as their own offices in Paris.

The Activ'Company teams at the Eurosatory trade show relied on Avid to complete their projects.

Using their hired equipment, DID Technology installed 4 editing suites based on Apple Mac Pro 2013 using the all new intelligent storage system Avid NEXIS | PRO. Activ’Company was then able to produce all of the video content for the trade show with total peace of mind, shooting a number of interviews with a Sony XDCAM HD system.

The communications agency set up ServiceMedia.tv, a platform for downloading HD videos aimed exclusively at journalists. Over 5 days, the Activ’Company filming times produced many images and interviews, promoting the media coverage of Eurosatory 2016.

DID Technology handled the complete delivery and installation of equipment in the press area of the Villepinte exhibition center. This meant the Activ’Company teams were able to work in excellent conditions, just like in the office.

Avid NEXIS | PRO was at the heart of the production unit led by DID Technology at the Eurosatory trade show.

The all-new storage system Avid NEXIS | PRO offered high responsiveness and speed of production for very important projects. The goal of the Activ’Company teams was to film reports on the numerous stands at the trade show and to publish the content as rapidly as possible on the various distribution channels. The collaborative work and the excellent performance of the Avid storage system managed to fool the editors, who could not tell the difference between powerful local storage and the double link to Avid NEXIS | PRO with a Giga Ethernet connection.

One major aspect that Activ’Company had to manage was the noise that such equipment can produce. Avid NEXIS | PRO is incredibly silent. Avid worked hard on this aspect in order to allow the installation of centralized storage in companies without specific server rooms. With the Avid storage system Avid NEXIS | PRO you can accelerate the production of audiovisual content.
