Avid Unveils Key Enhancements To Asset-Based Workflow Solutions

Avid has unveiled advances to its integrated solutions for advanced asset-based workflows. Spanning distributed production, media management, and storage, Avid is demonstrating how customers in news, TV, sports, and post-production can more effectively produce and distribute high quality content.
Among these solutions is Interplay MAM (Media Asset Management) Active Archive, a solution package that delivers essential Interplay MAM technology to support key workflows centered on a core archive capability. Comprised of software, workflow automation, partner integrations, and professional services, Interplay MAM Active Archive lets media producers easily customize the system to their needs, expand workflows, and add system integrations, and clients as needed.
According to Dana Ruzicka, vice president of segment and product marketing at Avid: "We’re giving our customers everything they need to quickly install and implement a complete archiving solution."
