Bring value to your business
How safe is your media? Are you constantly unplugging and re-plugging in drives to share assets across multiple workstations? What can you do to maximize your efficiency and get more of the work you want? By adding affordable NEXIS | PRO shared storage you can break down media barriers and accelerate your workflow. Get the reliable storage and collaboration you need to deliver your best work—on time and on budget.
Work with what you want
No need to ditch your favorite editing and asset management tools to accelerate your workflow. NEXIS | PRO enables real-time editorial collaboration using what you have, whether you edit in Adobe Premiere Pro CC, Apple Final Cut Pro X, Grass Valley EDIUS, or Media Composer. And it’s easy to integrate with third-party asset management systems too.
Experience exceptional performance
NEXIS | PRO empowers every contributor across your entire production, enabling projects to move in parallel and be completed faster. Through patented technology, NEXIS | PRO ensures client media due times. And it delivers incomparable, predictable performance and more media streams per Storage Engine in even the most editing-intensive environments.
Collaborate in real time
Put an end to the storage sharing and media-copying shuffle of using individual USB, FireWire, eSATA, and Thunderbolt drives. With NEXIS | PRO, up to 24 editors, assistants, loggers, and other contributors can access media at the same time. It’s the only online shared storage system that provides a scalable, highly protected, real-time collaborative editorial workflow at an attractive low price point.
Boost your bandwidth
With support for real-time SD, HD, 2K, and 4K media performance, NEXIS | PRO is the ideal hub for the modern yet budget-minded media production workflow. And when you need more throughput power to support more demanding high-resolution projects and collaboration, simply add up to four Storage Engines to increase your bandwidth up to 1,200 MB/s.
Store and protect your media
Scale your system
Why add more storage islands to your sea of media? With NEXIS | PRO, you
can expand your raw storage capacity from 20 TB up to 80 TB, in 20 TB
increments, adding extra Storage Engines as needed. Connect up to four
Engines together for maximum capacity and bandwidth. Your valuable
assets will be protected, available, and within easy reach through a
centralized media hub.
Get real reliable protection
With its patented data distribution technology, NEXIS | PRO protects your data like no other. Safeguard your media in the event that up to two drives go down simultaneously. Retain real-time performance with automatic drive rebuild. And because the file protection system is media-aware, it rebuilds only your actual stored assets instead of the entire capacity of the disk. You’ll get radically faster repair times—especially when drives aren’t at full capacity.
