  • What Interplay PAM version is supported by history management foroffice files(docx, xlsx, pptx)?

    Hi Team,

    I tested to history funtion on Interplay Access 3.8.1.

    The old office file formats(Doc, Xls, ppt) controlled history and rollback fuctions.

    But New formats(Docx, Xlsx, pptx) are not history function.

    Please, check this.

  • No Web Services installer in Interplay_2018.11_Server

    Looking to upgrade a client to 2018.11 Interplay. On my test system I was unable to install web serverices via the autorun, when I went looking in the installers folder I couldn't find it.

    Is this a mistake in the installer package or am I missing something.




  • Avid Airspeed Multistream Record templates.

    While the Airspeed multistreams are end of support for almost 2years now and I would love to see them all replaced with new airspeed 5500 or the new fastserve... there are still a few out there.

    Recently got a request to help changing some settings and as I have some time to spare (nice for once) decided to see if I could help.

    But after a few minutes I encountered a familiar problem for which I can't remember, even after 3-4 hours, the solution and google also does not find an article in the knowledgebase that has the solution.

    On the multistream units the record templates, destination templates and default templates are all set through the interplay framework service configuration. But whatever I try, also when I copy a template and rename it, the codec, bitrate, bitrade mode, gop structure selection pull down menu's stay greyed out, like the new button. In the install manual the picture in the chapter of setting up the template shows the exact same thing.

    As I have set these up in the past I remember there was something 'not obvious' but I simply can't remember... 

    Anyone that can unblock my memory?

  • Restoring a V3.5 Interplay Database on a v2017.2 Interplay Engine


    We have a full backup of a v3.5 Interplay database and are intending to use the restore tool to load it into a new IP Engine. However, this IP Engine is running v2017.2. We're aware Avid's official stance would be to move it down to v3.5 and then do the upgrade, but we are also receiving advice it should be fine without doing this.

    Does anyone have any experience doing it this way?




  • Understanding Media Central and Interplay

    Hi everybody!

    I need some help understanding Avid Interplay and Avid Media Central and can't seem to find easily understandable documentation that goes a little deeper than just telling me that it's "exciting" and "fast" and "easy".

    The production company where I work is working with 32TB of ISIS storage and 6 Media Composers. We're mostly editing documentaries and other non fictional formats, that rely on tons of archival footage. Since we often need certain archival footage in various documentaries we were thinking that having a kind of searchable archive with every bit of archival (i.e. historic) footage that we've aquired over the years would be a huge time saver.

    At the moment our system is pretty flawed. For example, if we're looking for footage of Berlin in the early 90s, we rely on our boss knowing, that we used a couple of shots of Berlin in the early 90s in a certain project, we then recover that project from external HDDs (were we archived the whole project to at some point in the past), consolidate the shots we need to our ISIS into the project we're currently working on. We still try our best to tag footage in the comments collum and populate every clip with custom meta data as well, but if you don't know what project you have to look in for that certain clip and meta data, you won't be able to find it.

    When I saw a couple of videos about Media Central, and that it offers search capabilites across projects I thought this could help us in a big way. Does Media Central offer the capability to search for custom meta data that I put into custom collums in Media Composer?

    While trying to educate myself about Media Central I learned, that parts of it at least only seem to work with interplay (or that interplay is about to be rebranded Media Central Production?), which brings me to my next question: What exactly is interplay and what does it do...?

    Since I tried to learn more about Media Central I found out that it only seems to work with Nexus storage. However buying Nexus storage just to archive old projects to and thus having a searchable archive is probably too expensive for my boss. I can't find any information about pricing on Nexus Near Line, which I read also works with Media Central.

    While looking at other companies that offer avid compatible network attached storage I found Object Matrix. They claim, that their MatrixStore Storage works with Media Central... but only with interplay? I guess this is a question that I have to direct to the people at Object Matrix, but in order to understand I guess I have to understand what Interplay and Media Central essentially are first.

    So any help you guys could give me and/or any documentation you could point me to would be greatly appreciated!


    Thanks in advance!


  • Mediacentral - MC compatibility matrix

    Dear Avid,

    With the release of Mediacentral production 2018.9 and Media composer 2018.10 I'd like to request if the

    Avid Editor Compatibility with Interplay Releases (time to update the name to Mediacentral?) document


    can be updated to include the latest versions.

    (The current main reason for this is to confirm MC 2018.10 requires MCP 2018.6 or 2018.9 client components.)

  • MediaCentral for producers to give edit notes


    Hope I'm in the right forum for this. I'm currently on a show that the producers will have to work remotely for editing. We've been using Vimeo & emails in the past but this year we'd like to look into a more advanced method.

    Read about the MediaCentral but have a couple of questions that couldn't find the answers on the website and hope someone could share some insight.

           We're currently on Media Composer 8.9.4. Would MediaCentral work with that?

           Our media server is Editshare based. Does MediaCentral require any (Nexis) hardware to work or just a matter of setting up a software?


    We basically just need a web interface for the producers to look at our cuts and give notes. If anyone could share some experience with it that'd be awesome.

    Thanks so much!


  • Media Distribute Youtube v3 Configuration



    We have Avid Media Central | UX vervion 2.10.x , in the media distribute we need to configure a profile to post videos on your youtube page.

    The confusion is all about Redirect URI. 


    If any one can guide.

  • Application manager and NIC Teaming,

    Dear Interplay users,

    I'd like to ask if others that have an Interplay system in which they use redundant switches can test a simple scenario.

    On an idle activated by the application manager Interplay product, it doesn't matter which, Transcode, production services, Transfer, that is connected by 2 Teamed 1G network connections disconnect the first nic, to simulate a primairy switch failure. Now restart that server. Does the product still activate? If so reconnect the first nic and disconnect the second and restart again.

    What I'm seeing is that the application manager for interplay products, just like MC, activates on the basis of 1 MAC address of the 'first' NIC it finds (the one with the lowest ifindex) during activation. If that NIC goes down the product does not activate the next time it is started. But this is such an elementary part of functional redundancy that I can't believe this is actually true.

    That the application manager on the MC client side does not support dual NIC teaming for device ID creation from 2 MAC adresses for activation I can deal with, although that should also work IMHO. But on the server's side?


  • Media Indexer limits

    What is the current recommendation for source file count? Is it still 500K? Even for a dedicated MI server?
