Avid has unveiled a new storage engine which enables media production teams to scale and collaborate on editorial finishing, VFX, animation, colour grading and DI workflows.
The Avid NEXIS | F2 Sold State Drive can be used with 4K, 8K and HDR content, with capacity to scale from 38.4TB to 307.2TB per engine.
It is equipped with Avid NEXIS media packs that deliver in excess of six Gigabytes per second, said the company.
Avid NEXIS | F2 SSD is compatible with all current Avid NEXIS systems. When used with Avid NEXIS online or nearline storage, Avid NEXIS | F2 SSD administrators can move a workspace between performance tiers, maintaining read and write access while the media is moving, said Avid.
“Production teams continue to see growing demand for high-resolution original content amid increasing pressure to deliver projects faster and sharpen their competitive edge,” said Ed Harper, director of product management, creative product, clouds and storage at Avid. “The Avid NEXIS | F2 SSD perfectly fits the performance requirements of today’s most demanding high-resolution workflows.”
