NAB Avid has added ISIS 5000-16 to its shared-storage platform, a 16TB entry point with
the same performance as the Avid ISIS 5000-32, for budget-conscious mid-sized post
facilities and broadcasters.
|ISIS 5000-16 is aimed at small- to mid-size postproduction facilities, rental houses, broadcasters, educational institutions and government agencies. As well as establishing an effective workflow and interoperability with Media Composer, NewsCutter, Symphony, Avid DS video editors and Avid Interplay Production asset management, ISIS 5000-16 includes full support for Apple Final Cut Pro. The ISIS 5000-16 system comes standard with Avid NewsVision 2.0, an entry-level newsroom system for local and regional broadcasters. Avid ISIS 5000-16 can handle changing production needs and shared access through dynamically scalable workspaces that can span storage engines.
Other capabilities in this version are testing and verification with Avid editing systems, Interplay Production asset management system and AirSpeed Multi Stream video server, and compatibility with mixed Avid/FCP workgroups. Media can be delivered in real-time over the supported client and resolution matrix with an optimum number of drives. Storage and performance are available with capacities from 16TB to 96TB, using 6 ISIS 5000-16 Engines, and bandwidth to 1.8GB/sec. It has an intelligent, self-balancing data architecture and linear and predictable scalability. Avid ISIS 5000-16 is expected to be available by mid-2011. www.avid.com
