Avid delivers Interplay
Avid Technology is now delivering Avid Interplay, its new nonlinear workflow engine that integrates asset management, workflow automation and security control into a single system.
Avid said the system was designed to deliver a shared storage solution for postproduction and broadcast customers of any size. Announced at NAB2006, Avid Interplay is a client-server engine that connects teams to its shared-data architecture while eliminating time-consuming production tasks.
With a broad range of tools for searching, archiving, viewing, logging, automatic transcoding, dual-resolution encoding and intelligent tracking of multiresolution proxy files, Avid Interplay supports any media production environment — accommodating more than 100 different media and non-media file types — and can link to production tools from virtually any other company.
With the ability to add optional toolsets, customers can expand the system to handle the complexity of enterprise-class workflows and to replace time-consuming tasks with automated processes.
