Nexio® NLE Gateway

3rd Party On-SAN Editing Appliance

The Nexio® NLE Gateway from Imagine Communications is a specialized server used to integrate 3rd party nonlinear editing workstations onto the Nexio® shared storage system.

The Nexio® NLE Gateway is an advanced solution that simplifies the use of Adobe® Premiere® Pro and Apple® Final Cut Pro® editors in television news and sports environments — or any broadcast operation seeking to benefit from the speed and resilience of the best­inclass HD/SD Nexio server.

Communication between the SAN and NLE workstations is facilitated using the Common Internet File System (CIFS) protocol. CIFS enables direct editing on the SAN — even during ingest — as well as the sharing of media and timelines with all On-SAN editors. Specially designed NLE plug­ins — Nexio Browser and Nexio Export, — are provided to enable content and metadata searches, browse viewing and shot selection, and direct publishing back to the Nexio SAN.
