Bandito Brothers has announced its investment in Avid’s new shared storage system, ISIS | 1000.
Powered by the Avid MediaCentral platform, the system enables the company’s creative teams to collaborate regardless of which editing application they use.
Bandito Brothers creates, produces, manages, and distributes audiovisual content, working primarily on feature films and commercials. The company invested in the Avid Storage Suite’s new Avid ISIS | 1000 shared storage system to help them work more collaboratively with very large and difficult-to-play files across all editing applications.
“ISIS | 1000 gives us the collaborative power we need to share projects across a wide range of tools and staff, and to complete projects in less time,” said Lance Holte, senior director of post production at Bandito Brothers. “The fact that it’s software agnostic means everyone can use the right tools for the job, and we don’t need to have several different servers with different projects and workflows.”
The system is accessible from three separate buildings at its Los Angeles campus – for music, postproduction and finishing. Editors can access plates being worked on by its on-site visual effects company, or copy over an AAF or OMF file for the sound team to open in Pro Tools in their shared workspace.
“Avid’s shared storage solution gives creative teams the accelerated workflows and enhanced collaboration they need to take on any project,” said Kyle Kim-Hays, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Avid. “Delivering on the openness of Avid Everywhere, Avid shared storage systems now support a wide range of third-party video editing systems, giving companies greater choice in how they deploy their creative workflows.”
