This release includes the following features and updates:
Avid Edit on Demand: Enable workspace & user permission management for Avid NEXIS | Cloud
- Enable selected user accounts in Avid | Edit on Demand to create, delete, and resize Avid NEXIS Workspaces and assign user permissions

Avid NEXIS All-Mirror Engines
- Enable customers to deploy All-Mirror NEXIS configurations at an affordable price to deliver the highest level of availability for fast turnaround and critical workflows
All-Mirror engines are specifically designed to deliver the highest level of media protection to make non-stop production affordable. These engines use Avid NEXIS Media Mirror protection, which in conjunction with Avid NEXIS Due Times allows Media Composer editors to work seamlessly through a wide range for issues and failures in Avid NEXIS, from multiple drive failures. Through controller switch over to complete engine loss with no interruption while playing, ingesting, or scrubbing a timeline.
Avid NEXIS All-Mirror engines support media mirror with 2-disk, or 1-disk workspace protection to fully protect all media and all workspaces. A minimum of 3 All-Mirror engines configured the same, plus an Avid NEXIS | SDA is required for media mirror protection. All-Mirror engines must be in their own Storage Group (cannot be connected to existing ‘flexible’ protection Storage Group), which can be part of an existing system with Avid NEXIS Nearline, SSD or flexible protection engines (using a common SDA). All-Mirror engines do not allow 2-disk, 1-disk, or unprotected workspaces to be created and cannot be modified or upgraded to support flexible protection; however, all other engines in other Storage Groups can run any Workspace Protection scheme supported by those engines.
