    New Virtual Machine option for Media Composer - Late Q2 2017

    New Virtual Machine option for Media Composer 

    Avid is actively working on a new licensing option to allow Media Composer to work in a virtual environment.  Users can just spin up a new version of Media Composer off a virtualized server.  

    Here is some background on the enviroment:

    What is VM?  A virtual machine (VM) is an emulation of a computer system as a substitute for a real (physical) machine.  VM’s provide the functionality needed to run entire operating systems and the applications and programs that run within them. A virtual machine, usually known as a “guest,” is created within another computing environment referred to as a "host." Multiple virtual machines can exist within a single host at one time.  A hypervisor facilitates abstraction of physical hardware resources allowing users to create and manage virtual machines as well as manage allocation of physical resources.

    What is PCoIP?  PC-over-IP,  is a high performance display protocol used to  deliver a virtual desktop to an endpoint device. 

    What is VDI? Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI)  is a desktop virtualization approach in which a desktop operating system runs and is managed in a data center.  The desktop image is delivered over a network to an endpoint device, which allows the user to interact with the OS and its applications as if it were running locally.   All of the data still resides in the data center. 

    When will this be available?  Late Q2 2017

    Questions, let me or RalphC know
