Why Jigsaw24 and Avid

Expertise

As an Avid Elite Reseller for storage, we work closely with Avid to facilitate entire media production and storage workflows. We have extensive experience installing the Avid ISIS range for our customers including Evolutions Television, Nottingham Trent University and BT Sport, and we can now offer the same level of service and consultancy across the NEXIS portfolio.

Support

We were among the very first in the UK to get our engineering staff qualified to support and install the NEXIS range. Our Avid Certified Support Representative engineers can train your internal IT and creative staff on how to set up users, mange workspaces, add security, integrate with directory services and advise on the day to day running of your system. Our team of experts will work closely with you to integrate NEXIS storage into your current workflow and environment, then provide ongoing advice and maintenance.

With the ever-changing world of post-production, we needed a fast, flexible system to keep up with the pace of Middlechild Productions. With performance, price and overall workflow to be considered, the NEXIS | PRO was the obvious choice for us

Paul Goodliffe, Joint Managing Director, Middlechild Productions Ltd.


Why choose the Avid NEXIS?

Avid NEXIS solutions

All NEXIS systems are powered by a common, unique file system at their core — NEXIS | FS. This highly intelligent, scalable file system delivers the unrivalled industry-trusted performance and reliability today’s media production demands. Choose from the professional-class, standalone NEXIS | PRO for smaller working groups, or enterprise-class E2 and E4 units for the ultimate in performance and capacity.

Scalability

NEXIS solutions allow complete scalability, allowing your storage system to grow with your facility. Smaller facilities will find the NEXIS | PRO an affordable entry point into shared storage. Specifically developed with high-demand creative workflows in mind, multiple PRO units can be combined to increase capacity and bandwidth.

For more demanding workflows, multiple E2 and E4 units can be combined, either individually or in conjunction with a System Director Appliance and Avid | FS Advanced, to achieve the balance of capacity, performance and accessibility you need.

Flexibility

NEXIS is able to cater to all your creative applications, including Media Composer, Final Cut Pro X, Premiere Pro, After Effects and DaVinci Resolve. Editors can use whichever tool is right for the job, safe in the knowledge that their storage system can handle whatever they throw at it.

Resilience

With expert level support available across the NEXIS range, and redundant power and cooling as standard, you can ensure your storage system stays in good condition. Adding the optional Redundant Controller will enable system redundancy and provide high availability for all data.
