Avid Everywhere

Avid Everywhere, and we mean EVERYWHERE...

What is Avid Everywhere?

The Avid Everywhere strategy links all Avid products and services and includes the MediaCentral platform and the Avid Suites: Artist, Media and Storage. Avid describe their Everywhere strategy as ‘an open, shared platform that enables editors, production crews and data wranglers to access files and project data wherever they are'.

While we can’t sell you ‘Avid Everywhere’, we can supply you with the individual components, like Pro Tools, Media Composer, ISIS and Interplay that will work together and create a harmonious Avid Everywhere solution, where different users are able to work collectively on projects. If you’re thinking of investing (or already have) in Avid software, make sure you have a look at our Avid Support section.

What is Avid MediaCentral? Arrow 

MediaCentral Platform is the architecture which underpins all Avid services, and is built into the framework of many Avid products. Avid break down MediaCentral platform into four key components, which we’ve included in a nice neat table below.

Media Services Connectivity Toolkit Orchestration Engine User Administration and Configuration
Search across your entire network Tie third parties into the workflow Workflow and process automation Single sign-on
Media playback on any device Share data across systems Flexible resource allocation Role-based acces
Share assets in any format Real-time monitoring Data-driven decision making Centralised system management

What about MediaCentral UX?

Formerly known as Interplay Central, all Avid services are accessed through MediaCentral UX, the interface for MediaCentral and the face of Avid Everywhere. Replacing Interplay Central, MediaCentral UX is designed to ensure that everyone has relatively uniform access to project assets. Users on mobile devices or notebooks can choose to access their Avid apps directly or through a web app, then browse, play back, log sequences, drop markers, make notes and mix audio from anywhere with an internet connection, regardless of the limitations of the device they’re working on. It even supports frame chase editing of MXF files.

What is Avid Support?

Avid Support is a yearly support contract, that we highly encourage people to take out for all their existing Avid licences.

You should get Avid Support because…

From the 1st January 2015, Avid are doing away with their current upgrade plan for key software including Media Composer, Symphony and NewsCutter. Upgrades will be replaced with Avid Support contracts. If you haven’t moved to Avid Support by 1st January 2015 and you find you do want new versions of Avid software, you’ll have to buy full, new licences at £939 (£1126.80 inc VAT) each.
