Media Composer | Distributed Processing


Stay in your creative video editing flow by offloading processor-intensive media tasks to any unused computers. With the Media Composer | Distributed Processing option, you can turn any group of machines into a powerful, networked render and transcode farm, enabling you to keep working. Whether creating mezzanine media from camera originals or rendering complex effect layers, Distributed Processing speeds up tasks for faster project turnaround.


  • Keep working—not waiting
    Instead of waiting for jobs to complete, Distributed Processing keeps you in your creative zone, so you can continue working in Media Composer and have more time to spend crafting your story.
  • Turn around content faster
    With parallel processing, jobs get completed faster to meet the tightest deadlines. You can even assign media in Avid NEXIS shared bins and projects and send jobs directly to your network.
  • Get easy system monitoring
    Track and monitor processing jobs remotely through a web-based dashboard that gives you insight and access to your distributed computer network, so you can keep production moving.
  • Maximize your resources
    Put all of your idle, unused, or older computers, servers, and workstations to work by networking them together as a powerful media render and transcode farm, increasing your ROI.
