Enhancing Avid® Media Composer® Workflows with EditStor Shared Storage


When looking for alternative to Avid storage solutions, such as the Avid ISIS® media storage system, you might be looking for shared storage that has greater performance, greater post production and finishing capabilities and/or a greater affordability. Regardless of the reason, Avid Media Composer, Interplay and Avid Everywhere workflows should not compromised.

As an Avid digital video professional in the media and entertainment industry working with Media Composer (and Pro Tools), features such as Avid project sharing (bin locking) and scalable workspaces cannot be overlooked. You are accustomed to a networked storage system workflow that goes back to nearly a decade when the Unity Shared Storage SAN was introduced

With speeds up to 10 times greater than Avid ISIS networked storage for growing 2K and 4K demands, greater scalability, and broader functionality, EditStor gives Avid post production and finishing professionals, server storage system administrators and facility owners new opportunities for growth.

Archion’s high performance and intelligent NAS storage server technology is enhanced with Archion’s APS ShareConnector, supporting transparent Avid project sharing (native Avid bin locking) for an unlimited number of Avid Media Composer post production professionals. .
