IBC 2016: Dock10 is to become Avid’s first Cloud Managed Services Partner.

The MediaCityUK post and studios facility currently provides its campus-based clients with a managed service for remote editing, via Avid MediaCentral UX.

Clients can edit and collaborate on their projects via Dock10’s remote Avid edit applications, including Avid Media Composer Cloud, and can manage their data by accessing Dock10’s Avid Interplay MAM system.

As an Avid Cloud Managed Services Partner Dock10 will now be able to offer clients outside of MediaCityUK the ability to access the same managed services that are offered on-campus.

Avid said this would be achieved by a “hub-and-spoke” with virtualised Avid Interplay Production systems hosted in regional data centers.

Dock10 will run a pilot for the new service in London later this year, with a view to further expansion.
