Avid Shared Storage Optimized for Real-Time Audio Production

Avid NEXIS® and Avid NEXIS | PRO® are software-defined storage solutions that have been optimized for Pro Tools®, Avid Media Composer® and most other leading third-party creative tools. They are a scalable, high-performance platform with a host of collaborative features that enable creative teams to work together on projects, whatever the track count, to make more content, faster than ever before.

When it comes to collaboration, the ability to provision on the fly is a huge bonus. It’s quick and easy to set workspace sizes, bandwidth and access privileges to ensure that you are always on top of schedules ready to deliver content in response to continuous demand.

As well as optimizing shared storage for collaborative work, we’re also in the unique position of being able to optimize the application for shared storage! Pro Tools 12.8 has been tweaked for Avid shared storage enabling users to stream 256 tracks or more, and attach up to 12 Pro Tools systems to a single Avid storage system.

Here are five great reasons why Avid NEXIS | PRO is a great investment for any audio production studio.
