Aspera for Avid Media Composer

Avid Media Composer Uses Aspera for seamless content ingest and delivery

Avid, a media technology leader and creator of the Avid Everywhere vision and Avid MediaCentral Platform, addresses the production needs of media professionals, with solutions ranging from industry-leading creative tools, to ingest, collaboration and management systems, and high-performance storage and delivery solutions.

As the professional’s choice for creative editorial, Avid Media Composer accelerates storytelling with the tools embraced by top movie, television, and broadcast editors to power through HD and high-res editing faster and easier than ever. Video editors need to quickly and easily acquire, edit, and deliver 2K to Ultra HD to 8K and other high-resolution content between systems and contributors. Unfortunately, the source and destination of content is oftentimes located hundreds or thousands of miles apart, which can slow the editorial workflows significantly.

By tightly integrating Aspera’s patented FASP® technology, Avid Media Composer editors can ingest and deliver huge media files with incredible speed and reliability over their existing wide area networks (WANs) to meet the time-critical demands of the editorial process. Aspera for Avid Media Composer enables faster and more geographically dispersed production workflows than ever before.

Joint Feature Highlights:

  • Aspera FASP is deeply integrated with Avid Media Composer to seamlessly ingest and deliver high res content at maximum speed over global wide area networks
  • Quickly and easily navigate, find, preview, and import media into Avid Media Composer using Aspera
  • Enables editors to centrally monitor the Aspera transfer jobs in Avid MediaCentral | UX with the deep API-based integration


By enabling Media Composer with Aspera patented FASP transfer technology, Avid customers can connect their existing or new Aspera Enterprise Server and easily extend high-speed file transfer capabilities to any video editing process. 

The deep API-based integration ensures the entire rich set of high-speed file transfer features available with Aspera FASP are supported and can be used directly within Avid Media Composer for a completely seamless user experience. End users and operators can easily monitor any Aspera transfer job in Avid MediaCentral | UX, the common front-end user interface of the Avid MediaCentral Platform. Users can also initiate high-speed file transfers between local and remote systems accessible to in-house and remote contributors, or initiate an Interplay | MAM Export to transfer any Interplay | MAM asset to a target system. All Aspera encryption, privacy and bandwidth control capabilities are fully supported.
