Avid has announced that multichannel broadcaster Radiotelevisione Italiana (RAI) is making extensive enhancements to optimise the flexibility and scalability of the production workflows serving its five national broadcast channels. The company’s multi-year agreement with Avid extends RAI’s longstanding use of Avid solutions and consists of upgrades to the MediaCentral platform, Media Composer video editing software and the addition of Avid NEXIS storage systems.
“As a multichannel broadcaster delivering a massive volume of original content, it’s crucial to be ready to scale production capacity whenever we need it,” said Ubaldo Toni, Director of Technology, RAI. “Augmenting our workflows with the latest Avid solutions gives us a powerful foundation to deliver on today’s commitments and easily scale to support future projects.”
RAI recently completed migration to Avid NEXIS | E5 media storage systems for channels Tg1, 2, and 3, RaiNews24 and Rai Parlamento, totalling six petabytes of available storage. This storage upgrade enables RAI’s teams to access content and projects across its network from anywhere, in real-time. RAI’s selection of Avid NEXIS storage reduces its carbon footprint and delivers cost savings from lower power consumption and reduced rack space compared to its prior storage solution.Click below to share this article
