Italian broadcast RAI has upgraded its newsroom as part of a new multi-year agreement with Avid.
The broadcaster has upgraded its news production workflows to use Avid’s MediaCentral platform, Media Composer video editing software and added Avid’s Nexis storage systems.
“As a multichannel broadcaster delivering a massive volume of original content, it’s crucial to be ready to scale production capacity whenever we need it,” said Ubaldo Toni, director of technology, RAI.
“Augmenting our workflows with the latest Avid solutions gives us a powerful foundation to deliver on today’s commitments and easily scale to support future projects.”
RAI has completed its migration to Avid NEXIS | E5 media storage systems for channels Tg1, 2, and 3, RaiNews24, and Rai Parlamento, totalling six petabytes of available storage. According to Avid, the storage upgrade enables RAI’s teams to access content and projects across their network from anywhere in real time, as well as reduce the company’s carbon footprint.
“Leading broadcasters such as RAI are achieving scalability and collaboration on highly flexible foundations that solve today’s needs and leave the door open for easy growth,” said Tom Cordiner, chief revenue officer, Avid.
