Mimiq enables Bin Locking for non-Avid storage. It's a standalone app for teams working with Avid Media Composer, enabling Shared Project workflows on:
- SMB, NFS, and AFP file shares in your local area network.
With Mimiq, Media Composer recognizes these volumes as third-party shared storage so teams of Avid editors can work together using Shared Bins with Bin Locking in Shared Projects.
Mimiq Pro enables remote and hybrid Shared Projects workflows by letting you use FUSE-based volumes (such as Postlab's Drive and LucidLink Filespaces) alongside SMB, NFS, AFP file shares on your local area network.
Mimiq Pro also allows you to create Workspaces from any type of storage – such as a RAID, SAN (e.g. Quantum StorNext), LucidLink Filespaces, and even local folders – which Media Composer treats as independent NEXIS shares.
Independent from Mimiq, Avid has set very specific requirements for Media Composer to be used successfully. If you haven't done so already, be sure to implement these Requirements for Media Composer on each computer:
Currently, only one NEXIS client can be active on a computer at any given time. While that means you can install Mimiq and the Avid NEXIS Client on the same computer, once Mimiq launches, it becomes the active NEXIS client. Once you quit/exit Mimiq, your former NEXIS client resumes its place as the active NEXIS client.
