STORAGE SOLUTIONS: AVID

AVID ISIS STORAGE

Shared storage for media professionals.

ISIS 7500

With today’s consumerization of content creation and accelerated digitization of assets, having a reliable online system to store, protect, and optimize media is critical. Building on the proven technology and success of the ISIS 7000, ISIS | 7500 delivers unparalleled SD, HD, and 4K performance and collaboration capabilities, maximizing workflow efficiency for larger broadcast and media enterprise facilities. And it offers greater storage capacity and scalability—up to 3 PB of raw storage with the new i8000 storage
blades—delivering a much lower overall TCO to handle your needs now and in the future. Unlike standard storage systems, ISIS | 7500 is designed for media production, assuring real-time media delivery, while protecting what matters most—your assets.

Built for professional collaboration

ISIS | 7500 is designed by media professionals for media professionals to address their unique storage needs. Not only does it enable collaboration, it encourages it, allowing more than 300 Avid and non-Avid editors to connect concurrently and simultaneously share and edit the same SD, HD, and high-res media in real time. Because ISIS empowers teams across the entire production, projects can move in parallel and be completed faster. In addition, you can easily scale any workgroup or workspace on the fly to handle changes quickly.

A smarter, more open workflow

More than just shared storage, ISIS | 7500 is a workflow-connected platform that tightly integrates with Avid ingest, asset management, editing, and playout systems for a completely optimized end-to-end workflow. Plus, it now supports 4K and Ultra HD collaborative workflows; more third-party applications, including Adobe Premiere Pro CC, Autodesk Smoke, Apple Final Cut Pro X, and DaVinci Resolve; and a wide variety of high-res media formats, including Avid DNxHR, REDCODE 5K, 4K DCI (DPX), ProRes, XAVC, and Sony F55 RAW 4K.
