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.

You will receive a $7500 credit off the ISIS 5000 purchase price on any order of ISIS 5000 32TB or multiple ISIS 5000 Engine system.

This promotion is not offered on purchases of ISIS 5000 Direct Connect or ISIS 5000 Demo systems. This promotion requires the return of Unity MediaNetwork file Manager, storage chassis

and dongle or LANShare chassis and dongle.

Avid Technology Professional Services Tandem Join Key Code Media

April 20, 2010-Burbank

Key Code Media announces the hiring of Ed Locke and Scott Williams. As Avid Technology, Inc. veterans they bring a combined eighteen years of experience working with advanced Avid solutions. The addition of Scott increases the number of certified Avid ISIS and Interplay engineers to 4 on staff, and Ed Locke brings 10 years of solution and workflow design experience. Mike Cavanagh, President of Key Code Media, states “Scott and Ed have a combined 25 years of industry experience, at Key Code Media they will help our customers manage the migration to tapeless workflows by leveraging advanced storage technologies and cutting-edge workflows covering ingest through distribution. Our clients count on Key Code Media to have the expertise to enable them to integrate the most cost effective and highest performing solutions available. This hiring further shows our commitment to providing the top talent in the industry to address complex solutions and workflows.”

Ed Locke joined the sales organization as a specialist on storage infrastructure and broadcast workflow. Ed spent much of his time at Avid working closely with broadcasters and the technologies that enable next-generation workflows. He discussed the significance of file-based workflows back in 2006 on a panel with other recognized experts at the “Tape-Less Revolution” event hosted at CBS Studio Center by the Television Academy. Most recently he worked on projects including “Entertainment Tonight/The Insider”, “The Ellen DeGeneres” show, Comcast Sports Net, and Fox Sports International. Asked about his move to Key Code, Ed had this to say; “Working for Key Code Media was a natural choice, their reputation for supporting their client base is completely aligned with my views. This position allows me to continue developing integrated multi-vendor solutions for broadcast clients while expanding the tool box to fully enable my design capability. Key Code Media’s exposure to our industry and their relationship with Avid create the exciting opportunity for me to work more closely with many of the customers I’ve been engaged with for years. I can continue to provide a deep knowledge of Avid’s workflow and solutions while leveraging complementary products to design a broad range of Editorial and Broadcast environments.”

Scott Williams joined the technical department and is well versed with integrating Avid solutions that include ingest through distribution and archive as well as configuring robust Cisco network infrastructures. Scott originally joined Avid through the Pinnacle acquisition and has deployed multiple mission critical broadcast systems including the West Coast deployment of the Fox SportsNet, CNN, Televisa (Mexico City), RDS (Montreal) and Bright House Networks using products such as Avid ISIS, and Avid Interplay. Scott adds “Key Code Media is big enough to support large client infrastructures, but also small enough to allow every employee have input and help guide clients. I am on the Strategic Product Group at Key Code Media which helps define, vet and approve the technologies we represent to our clients. I am excited about this next move for my career.”

Key Code Media is a media solutions value added reseller and systems integrator specializing in video and audio workflows including Avid Technology, Apple, HP, Sony, Panasonic, JVC, NewTek, Facilis, Digital Rapids, Isilon, StorageDNA, Root6 and Telestream.  Offices are located in Burbank, Santa Monica, San Francisco and Seattle.
