AVID / Interplay information

  1. Interplay Mount name:

  2. MediaFiles path (ISIS):                                                       
    • Where to ingest the media files, a typical setup is: //Avid MediaFile/MXF.  However that might be different, a Interplay tool called MediaIndexer will check for new media files in that location.  Make sure the Admin has configured that.

    • (Ask the admin to create)
  6. Test Workspace Name:                                                       
    • A dedicated ISIS workspace to test the workflow is useful, but not mandatory.
  7. Test Interplay Project:                                                       
  8. IP or FQDN of the ISIS Server:                                                       
    • This is used to download the appropriate ISIS Client Manager, visit the IP / FQDN into a browser.  You may need to install a new Flash version on the AWO.  The admin on site will help you.
  9. ISIS Client Manager Version:
