    Media Central / Search / Archive Production on 3rd party sotrage

    Hey everybody,

    I'm really new to the whole Interplay/Media Central thing, so please bear with me :D

    We're working with lots of archival footage in our production company every day. Since we often reuse footage we're looking for a solution to create a searchable video library. We work exclusively with Media Composer, so having the capability to simply search every media data base that is somehow accessible would be the easiest way for us to find clips and not having to implement an exterior MAM and change our wokflow. Everything would keep happening within Avid/Media Composer.

    The problem is, that it's my understanding, that this only works for media, that is on NEXIS storage. Buying additional NEXIS storage just to store and retrieve media and basically use that NEXIS storage as our library/archive doesn't seem to make sense, because we don't need the performance of a NEXIS just to store stuff. It's just to expensice :D

    So the biggest question would be, if there's any way I could make the Media Central apps work on different, maybe even local storage, in order to use cheaper, low performace storage, but still be able to search everything on there.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    While not exactly what you are looking for, this MAY get you somewhat close to a searchable record of archived projects.
