Store Media Securely

Share and store media securely

Edit On Demand comes with Avid NEXIS cloud storage, enabling editors and other contributors to access content and make the latest footage immediately available to the greater team. All cloud-stored assets and file transfers are encrypted and protected by FileCatalyst to ensure the utmost security. You can also restrict access and secure communications to further safeguard media from unauthorized access.

Scale resources quickly

Easily scale up or scale back your Media Composer seats as production demands ebb and flow—from 1–30 simultaneous editors at a time and up to 60 named users. Simply manage your subscription through the Avid On Demand portal. You can also increase your Avid NEXIS cloud capacity up to 200 TB with add-on storage.

“I would definitely recommend Edit On Demand. You forget that it’s a virtual PC. You forget that you’re streaming media from the cloud. It’s fantastic.”

When time and gear are in short supply to meet changing production demands or new project opportunities, Edit On Demand is your fast and stress-free solution. With automated cloud deployment, you can quickly ramp up a full virtual production suite that’s accessible from anywhere in hours—not days. There’s no need to architect, purchase, configure, network, test, administer, and troubleshoot systems to capitalize on short-term project opportunities. Storage and seats are completely configurable, dependent on your schedule requirements, enabling fast burst capacity to handle production surges, then spinning down when completed.

Pay only for what you need

Say goodbye to billing surprises. With a single weekly or monthly subscription fee, your team can be up and running and collaborating fast. No lengthy project ramp-ups. No overages. No hidden fees. No stress. Plus, you get simple subscription monitoring, management, and billing, so you’re always aware of your usage to make smarter decisions about your subscription investment.

Optimize costs and business efficiency

Easily monitor your usage over time in the dashboard to better understand your current and future needs, drive maximum value, and prevent over-utilization of your subscription resources. Plus, because Edit On Demand doesn’t require a huge upfront capital investment, you can move from a CapEx business model to OpEx for easier planning and budgeting.

“As far as the Avid | Edit On Demand interface goes, it’s almost identical to working on-premises. Users can barely see the difference between their local Media Composer app or one running virtually. It's that good.”
