Avid AirSpeed

Avid AirSpeed

The AirSpeed 5000 server takes on a wide range of applications for broadcasters of any size. Building on a legacy of innovative workflow-enabling servers, AirSpeed 5000 adds cost-efficient play to air capability, slow motion playback and support for third party editing systems. Peerless Avid workflow integration, open design, and codec agility provide the ease, speed, and flexibility essential for long term broadcast success.

More performance, more value

AirSpeed 5000 is equally proficient at working with Avid and third-party control systems to automate ingest and playback. Available simultaneous dual encoding creates full resolution and proxy copies of media and makes them instantly accessible across a LAN or WAN with Avid Interplay Production.

For smaller news production environments, AirSpeed 5000 can be used directly with Media Composer and other editing systems to give you high-value performance without compromising quality or speed.
