Avid Unveils Avid NEXIS | EDGE to Power Post Production Workflows from Anywhere

Unique innovations enable content creation teams to collaborate without compromise and work from anywhere with Avid’s proven, industry-leading workflows

Avid® (Nasdaq: AVID) today extended the power of its collaborative post production solutions with the introduction of Avid NEXIS | EDGE™. This innovative new software option enables post production teams to work from any location, delivering secure, remote access to media and metadata. Avid NEXIS | EDGE enables team members to access the same proven collaborative workflows relied on by thousands of post production facilities worldwide, without requiring collaborators to be co-located. Avid NEXIS | EDGE will be previewed at the HPA Tech Retreat in Rancho Mirage, California, starting on February 21, 2022. 

Avid NEXIS | EDGE empowers video editors to work concurrently on the same video content, sharing metadata and media on Avid NEXIS® from anywhere. Project and bin metadata can be shared by editors. Media content can be automatically converted to lightweight streaming formats, enabling real time remote editing over standard internet connections. Media can also be downloaded remotely by editors for disconnected operation. 

Creative stakeholders, such as producers, can readily browse and review content using the Avid NEXIS | EDGE Web Client, while assistants can accelerate editing workflows – finding media, organizing projects, editing clips, and storyboarding sequences. Editors using Adobe Premiere Pro can also access Avid NEXIS | EDGE with the Premiere Pro Editing Connector.  

Avid NEXIS | EDGE integrates directly with Media Composer | Enterprise™, enabling centralized, role-based administration. Using simple, web-based tools, administrators can easily control access to content and editing tools. With Media Composer | Enterprise, each team member can enjoy a customized user experience, tailored to their needs and role in the workflow. 

“As content creation teams continue to adapt to the realities of the global pandemic, they are looking for ways to connect and collaborate, without having to be co-located within facilities,” said David Colantuoni, Vice President of Product Management at Avid. “That is exactly what Avid NEXIS | EDGE delivers – and more. With Avid NEXIS | EDGE, post production teams can easily collaborate from anywhere, tapping into the proven Avid workflows that have only been available on premises up until now. And, for the thousands of Avid NEXIS systems installed worldwide, adding these powerful, new workflow capabilities is easy – just deploy Avid NEXIS | EDGE software and you are off and running.”
