Avid has unveiled the Avid ISIS 5000, a new shared storage solution for broadcasters and post production facilities.
The product was developed to address the needs of workgroups requiring 40 or fewer client connections
Major features include the ISIS file system, support for Avid and Apple Final Cut Pro editing systems, Ethernet connectivity and realtime storage resizing.
Ian Burling, head of technical services, at Films at 59 Ltd., an end user who tested the system, said. “Our clients use a variety of editing systems, so in order to meet their needs flexibility is a number one priority for us. We were looking for a solution that would allow us to consolidate high and low resolution clients and move media with greater agility and ease. We are extremely impressed by how well the ISIS 5000 has tested. It’s proven to be a flexible, easy-to-use, high-performance standard-bearer—great for post production houses like us that need to integrate third-party editing systems such as Apple Final Cut Pro to handle a variety of workflows.”
The Avid ISIS 5000 will be available on in a 32TB or 64TB switched configuration, or a 32TB Direct Connect configuration that offers four direct client connections and the ability to add a third party switch. All configurations support Mac or PC clients and include 40 seat licenses with either one or three years of Avid Priority or Avid Uptime Support.
