Avid and Adobe have partnered to allow Adobe’s Premiere Pro CC editing app to be supported by Avid’s shared storage systems.

The “unprecedented collaboration” between the companies would help to create “flexible and efficient workflows”, the companies said.

“We are pleased that Avid’s shared storage systems now provide the high performance required for Adobe solutions,” said Adobe director of strategic relations Simon Williams.

“With this news, Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Media Composer can share Avid DNxHD or Avid DNxHR media and other open file types on the same infrastructure.

“Our large base of shared customers will undoubtedly realise significant workflow benefits from this collaboration.”

The tie-up is in part the result of the development of Avid’s Storage Suite which runs on the company’s MediaCentral Platform.

Adobe said enhancements to Premiere Pro CC would significantly improve its performance when connected to Avid ISIS 7500 and ISIS 5500 shared storage systems.

Users will be able to mix Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere Pro CC content on the same ISIS system in the same storage group.

“One of the critical issues facing broadcasters and post-production facilities is the drag on productivity caused by having to manage and integrate different solutions from different vendors with different standards,” said Ray Gilmartin, senior director, Product and Segment Marketing, Avid.

“This collaboration between Avid and Adobe is an example of the openness and flexibility that we are committed to delivering to the industry with Avid Everywhere.”
