Avid ISIS 5000 Move on Up Upgrade

Customers with older Unity MediaNetwork or LANshare shared storage systems now have an opportunity to get $7500 off the total system price by moving on up to an ISIS 5000-32TB (with one or more ISIS 5000 Engines).

Benefits/Why Upgrade

Based on Unity MediaNetwork and LANshare, the newest technology and features of ISIS 5000 provide the lowest cost per GB ever. With ISIS 5000, you get greater user storage capacity, administrative flexibility, all-Ethernet connectivity and 90 included client licenses. And of course you still get the best possible real-time integration with Avid editorial, Interplay, and Final Cut Pro workflows.

With today’s budgetary constraints and highly competitive business environment, it’s all about getting the best tools at the lowest prices. ISIS 5000 deliver more real-time performance and superior editor integration than EditShare, and much greater storage flexibility and management tools than Facilis. Compared to any other shared storage system, Avid makes collaboration faster, easier and more reliable.

Extensive storage and workflow testing enables Avid to hold its solutions to the highest standards of performance and reliability in today’s media industry. Whenever you need Avid support, we’ll always by there with people who understand and “get” your business.
