Avid NEXIS | EDGE: Enable Team Collaboration From Anywhere

In this episode of Inputs/Outputs, Avid will demonstrate their latest remote post production tool – Avid NEXIS | EDGE. This is a brand-new solution enables video post and creative teams to collaborate together, whether working in-house, on location, or at home.

In the video, we connect an editor in Los Angeles, with an editor in Toronto, connected to a NEXIS in Boston. Allowing creative teams to work from anywhere using the tools you already know and love and get the same user experience as if you were editing at the facility.

If your team is evaluating Avid NEXIS | EDGE, we recommend you book a strategy call or schedule a demo with the Key Code Media team- the #1 Avid authorized reseller in the United States.
