Avid’s Edit On Demand cloud solution now offers “over-the-shoulder” workflows via Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) protocol support in the latest edition of Media Composer editing software.
The new capability is designed to further enhance the cloud editing environment by securely streaming the video and audio output of Media Composer over the internet to anyone, anywhere using an SRT-enabled decoder, set-top box, video player, or mobile device to view the playback in real time.
Production teams can spin up virtualized resources including Media Composer seats with Avid Nexis cloud storage within hours, access their workflows from anywhere, and shut them down quickly when projects are complete.
With greater collaboration through SRT, broadcast and post-production teams can distribute multiple outputs to multiple devices simultaneously, allowing for faster client review and feedback.
Avid product management for video and media solutions vice president David Colantuoni said Avid’s Edit On Demand user experience allowed distributed post-production teams to collaborate in the cloud as effectively as working together in a studio or other facility.
“In-person over-the-shoulder access for content review and approval has always been essential to successful workflows and now SRT ensures this is possible in remote and distributed editorial workflows,” he said.
