GLOOKAST creates shared storage intelligent media hub with launch of glooport media|flex for Avid NEXIS

Davie, FL, USA & Porto, Portugal, April 4th, 2018 – GLOOKAST, innovator in MXF workflow solutions for broadcast, drama production and business continuity has announced the launch of glooport media|flex for NEXIS, a shared storage intelligence layer fully integrated with Avid NEXIS to create a flexible media hub.

As an Avid Alliance partner, GLOOKAST has maintained a strong collaborative relationship with Avid for several years, enabling the company to deliver a host of benefits to Avid users, including improved workflows and significant time and cost savings, resulting in increased efficacy. The latest development as a result of this, is the launch of the new glooport media|flex for NEXIS.

The new media|flex for NEXIS is based on the same technology and distributed services of the glooport family, but optimized for use with Avid NEXIS. It is the first shared storage intelligence layer that addresses most of the common workflow and operational issues experienced in the absence of an asset management platform, as well as the challenges associated with the increasing dynamism of production and post-production workflows. Designed specifically for Avid NEXIS, media|flex can be installed using a single server and allows for multiple simultaneous jobs.

With glooport media|flex, the workflow possibilities are endless, and include transcode into a mezzanine codec while ingesting, park into a nearline, retrieve only what you need, ingest simultaneously in OP-Atom and OP1a (allowing editing in both Media Composer and Premiere), outgest from parked content and transcode while distributing to multiple platforms.

“Historically, small and mid-size content producers had to choose between limited functionality or the investment and complexity of a MAM-based infrastructure”, said Guilherme Silva, Co-founder and CEO at GLOOKAST, “media|flex for NEXIS provides content producers with tools to enable optimized workflows with unprecedented efficiency”.
