  • Needing Unity MN v5.4 client software for windows

    We have replaced some of our workstations and realized that Avid no longer has the Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.4 client software for Windows on their download page. I checked all my hard drives and thumbdrives and have everything but the Unity client. I have contacted Avid and they say they don't have it. I have v5.1 from our original CD's when we bought the Unity but that doesn't seem to work with Windows 10. I am hoping that someone out there still has vers 5.4 or Ver 5.3. We would really appreciate any help!

  • backup Unity volumes to external drive on external computer over LAN

    We have a Avid Media Composer 7.0.4 on a Mac Pro connected to Unity storage via fibrechannel.

    This Mac Pro is on a LAN to which we also have a Mac Mini connected.

    The question is:  Can we connect a firewire drive to the Mac Mini and connect over the LAN to the Mac Pro in order to back up the Unity volumes?   When we connect over the network we can see the Mac Pro's local Macintosh HD Volume but not the Unity mounted Volumes.  When we connect a firewire to the Mac Pro, the Mac Mini can see the firewire drive's partitions and backup those, but we are hesitant to connect the firewire drive to the Mac Pro while the Avid is running because the Avid may become confused over the two sets of Avid Mediafiles, the originals on the Unity volumes and the copies on the external firewire drive.  But if we could back over LAN from the Mac Mini, the Avid on the Mac Pro could still be running and not see the doubling up of media.


  • Unity 5.1.3 Error

    Hello everyone,

    This might be a long shot but was wondering if anyone could shed some light on an ancient Unity 5.1.3 system.

    We picked up an 8TB Media Engine with version 5.1.3 and midway_server.exe crashes whenever a dongle is plugged in. This renders File Manager frozen which works without the dongle (no functions but doesn't freeze). Server Log registers the dongle if I plug it in after server restart, but then File Manager freezes.

    We're using a 5.2 dongle that works fine on an older Unity 4.2.4 box. Same error if we plug in the 4.2.4 dongle in this machine. 

    Then I removed all traces of AVID, sentinel, java, formatted the AVIDONLY partition, and cleared the registry of anything AVID and Sentinel related, made sure network adapters are configured right, removed FC card. Reinstalled Unity. Same issue.

    We have to get this running by the end of the week. I am a pretty decent IT person but am new to Unity.

    Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

    I'm ready to reinstall Server 2003 R2 SP1 if that helps.

  • Digital Storgae

    I am looking to have about 1500 DVCAM tapes stored digital. Each tape is about 1.5 hours. I am wondering what is the best way to store these and have it that we can edit anytime from the netowrk. We would also like to have ability to add key wors in a search to find what is on each tape.  Any suggestions to get me started would help

  • Local mxf/1 folders on shared storage?, Weird

    I've come by a weird problem with our AVID Mediacomposer systems connected to Dynamic Drive Pool shared storage. The DDP emulates the AVID FS filestructure to "trick" avid mediacomposer into thinking it's an Unity or ISIS drive.

    This has worked flawlessly until somewhere around november 2015. I've discovered that somtimes ( at random?) mediacomposer adds mxf/1 folders into the shared mediadrives instead of mxf/edit.1 folders that we are used to in our Avid Unity and DDP shared environment?

    As a result sometimes Avid Mediacomposer crashes if it encounters a mxf/1 folder which is in use on another system (ofcourse because their using the same database....)

    We have this issue on 2 different setups and locations using latest DDP drivers and firmware and Avid Mediacomposer 8.5.3 ( but the problem seems to be older)

    Has anyone using shared storage come across this at a time?
