Cloud-based editing: Amazon Studios teams up with Avid Technology

Avid Technology and Amazon Studios announced a three-year agreement to bring cloud-based editorial to Amazon Studios’ expanding slate of more than 300 original movies and series. Creative teams will get the same experience and performance as an on-premises editorial bay—including collaborative workflows with shared storage and end-to-end media management—without the complexity and time required to set up and tear down traditional hardware.

Editors need to access massive sets of media files that have traditionally been stored in the same location as the editing team. In collaboration with Avid, Amazon Studios will untether their editorial process to allow creative work to happen from almost anywhere, and centralize the editorial and content workflows in the cloud. This collaboration will bring Avid’s Emmy-winning Media Composer software tool and Avid NEXIS media storage solutions to editors and other content contributors wherever they are, supporting creative teams that are spread across the globe.  
By leveraging AWS and its global infrastructure, Amazon Studios will further centralize production assets in the cloud, creating a smoother, more unified production workflow. Production and Post-Production teams will spend less time duplicating and transferring media to critical team members, allowing more time to be spent on high-value creative efforts. Productions will also enjoy the peace of mind that comes from having their content, including camera raw files, protected by automatic processes that distribute data across several AWS Regions.
Avid and Amazon Studios expect to have cloud-based, production-ready solutions by fourth quarter 2022.
