NB Image for illustration purposes only, product appearance may differ slightly from that illustrated.

Faster workflow and FrameChase editing
Direct ingest to shared storage with FrameChase™ editing—in a variety of formats, without transcoding—means that workgroup and MXF-supporting editing systems can simultaneously edit or play any live feed within seconds after recording starts. AirSpeed systems virtually eliminate the time between acquisition and editing. At airtime, AirSpeed systems can play the story while the file is still transferring, speeding up both ends of the process in time-critical news, talk show, and sports production.

No compromise end-to-end HD production
Linked with the award-winning DNxchange™ coprocessor, AirSpeed 2.5 captures any 1080i/50, 720p/59.94 or 720p/50 source, records Avid DNxHD media directly into an Avid Unity media network, and then plays out the finished project in the original format, maintaining pristine video and audio quality. 

More affordable cost of entry
The Avid AirSpeed multi-purpose media platform is a cost-effective and workflow-enabling replacement for VTRs or server technology that no longer fit your budget or your plans. Now, the same AirSpeed server that provides dedicated ingest, storage, and playout directly to and from Avid Unity shared storage is now available for capture and playout over the network to standalone Avid editing systems without shared storage.

Greater reliability
Safe playout transmission is ensured by caching material from shared storage onto the AirSpeed system’s internal storage. Grouping up to four AirSpeed systems in a Studio configuration provides redundancy and flexibility for even greater playout confidence, while adding a fifth unit can provide additional failover channels in conjunction with the AirSpeed CountDown™ playback control application.

Straightforward operation
The standard AirSpeed system can be operated from the LCD front panel or controlled using standard VTR control protocols—and its familiar UI requires minimal training. Users can operate the AirSpeed system over the network through included or optional applications. The AirSpeed system is also available without a front panel and with higher capacity drives for remote-only operation or more flexible HD workflow.

Extended Access
With AirSpeed systems, direct shared storage is as accessible to the feed room operations as it is to the connected editing clients - and over-the-network control applications give you freedom from the feed room.

Modular scalability
The 3RU form factor and the ability to simply add ingest or playout channels (or easily reconfigure between them) means broadcasters or facilities can start small and grow affordably.

Tight integration with production process
AirSpeed systems work in conjunction with MediaManager for easy search of ingested assets, bringing all attached clients (editors and non-editors alike) the power of integrated asset management embedded in the production process.
