Avid Everywhere

Avid has made several key announcements around Avid Everywhere, the company’s strategic vision for the media and entertainment industry, centered on connecting creative professionals and media organizations with their audiences in more powerful, efficient, collaborative, and profitable ways.

The company introduced its new Avid MediaCentral Platform and set of modular application suites that together represent the most open, integrated, and flexible media production and distribution environment in the industry.

“The media industry is going through a period of unprecedented change and needs a leader to step forward with a clear vision for the future,” stated Avid President and CEO Louis Hernandez, Jr. “Our Avid Everywhere vision uniquely solves the key issues facing the industry. By getting on the Avid MediaCentral Platform today, broadcast, video, and audio customers can strategically address both their current and future needs, with complete choice over how, when, and where they deploy and scale their solutions.”

The new MediaCentral Platform is an open, extensible, and customizable foundation that enables customers to streamline their entire workflow—from media creation to distribution and monetization—with greater flexibility, choice, and security. By fostering an open approach, the MediaCentral Platform provides a standardized foundation that connects media creators and distributors together, regardless of who makes the tools they use. This fundamentally changes how media organizations and professionals operate, providing greater flexibility to choose solutions and easily customize and scale complete end-to-end workflows tailored to meet specific needs.

Building on the Avid Everywhere strategic vision, Avid has reorganized its existing hardware and software products and introduced new solutions in three suites, all built upon the MediaCentral Platform. With on-premises and cloud-enabled deployment options, as well as subscription, floating, and perpetual licensing, customers now have greater choice over how they use Avid solutions.

Over time, the Media Suite will expand to include metadata tagging, protection and encryption, and analytics.

Avid is developing the MediaCentral Platform and application suites to uniquely solve the needs of broadcast, pro video, and pro audio customers by offering a comprehensive ecosystem that encompasses every aspect of the digital media value chain—from media production, collaboration, and management, to distribution, monetization, and data analysis.
