​Hedge Extends Avid Editing Workflows Into The Cloud

Postlab support for Media Composer unlocks the cloud for Avid editors; features collaborative remote editing with familiar Bin Locking capabilities and pay-as-you-go pricing model.

“Media companies need a way to collaborate remotely right now. Given the uncertainty around the pandemic, many do not want to make significant investments or sweeping infrastructure changes,” states Paul Matthijs, co-founder and CEO of Hedge. “Postlab for Media Composer extends facilities’ on-premise storage investment by providing much-needed secure remote editing for a small incremental cost. It’s fast, secure remote editing that delivers the same great experience of being in the facility.”

Postlab for Media Composer works for all Avid Media Composer Ultimate editors, whether they’re working on-premise or from home, and supports all types of storage—an on-prem Nexis system, NAS or SAN—or no on-prem storage at all.

Matthijs added, “Postlab for Media Composer is intrinsically secure and doesn't rely on slow and hard-to-configure VPNs, allowing editors to begin working immediately from anywhere, with no minimum requirement for an internet connection. Postlab keeps existing workspaces in sync and makes Avid’s incredibly useful Bin Locking feature work in the cloud so users can seamlessly collaborate on projects without overwriting each other's work, a crucial component of any workflow, on-premise or in the cloud.”
