NAB 2014: Avid's ISIS family now supports 4K workflows
LAS VEGAS – At the NAB show, Avid (www.avid.com) introduced the new ISIS|2500 nearline shared storage system. The entire ISIS storage family now supports collaborative 4K workflows.

ISIS|2500 is the successor to the ISIS 2000, and is part of the Avid Storage Suite, a new grouping of products that includes the company’s online storage, nearline storage, and ingest/playout solutions. Operating on the open, extensible, and customizable Avid MediaCentral Platform, ISIS|2500 provides  scalability, performance, media access, sharing, and protection.

The ISIS|2500 offers a choice of 160TB and 320TB engines. As storage needs grow, customers can easily scale capacity by employing up to five ISIS|2500 Engines for a possible total of 1.6PBs of raw disk-based nearline storage. The ISIS|2500 supports any and all media files, enabling organizations to store a massive amount of content from a variety of media sources and easily find needed assets later. With ISIS|2500, it’s possible to store proxies or multiple versions of a project for different channels of delivery, and maintain a library of historic clips, stock footage, and commonly used assets. 

RAID 6 protection helps diminish loss with two concurrent disk failures. New ISIS 4.7 software supports high-res media across all ISIS systems and 2K/4K and Ultra HD collaborative workflows with ISIS online systems. The V.4.7 release also supports realtime, collaborative high-res workflows with third-party creative applications, including Adobe Premiere Pro, Autodesk Smoke, Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve, and Apple Final Cut Pro X.

ISIS|2500 and ISIS 4.7 will be available in May. Pricing for ISIS|2500 (160TB ISIS Engine) starts at $139,000. Customers with an Avid Advantage ExpertPlus or Elite support plan can upgrade to ISIS 4.7 software by logging in to their Avid Master Account.
