Avid MediaCentral

Avid MediaCentral is great for smaller projects that are one minute in length or less. This is why it has been used for digital ads, social media posts, and quick commercials that we put out on our TV network and YouTube channel.

OpenText MediaBin

If you want to share (or access) the most current version of any content MediaBin can be useful for ensuring that you are getting the right thing - assuming you can find it. Another useful functionality - OS sharing or exporting different file formats for a file. Often PDF works, but sometimes you need a file in a different image format and the software can allow that.

Emily Giannakas | TrustRadius Reviewer

OpenText MediaBin

  • Search is often a chellenge - using the file name or "item number" doesn't always bring up the expected results.
  • Navigation is not intuitive in places - finding different functions
  • The export function is powerful but not always clear, several options seem like the same thing. e.g. Do I need FTP ot HTTP download? Do I care?

Alternatives Considered

Avid MediaCentral

I’ve used Adobe Premiere Pro for longer videos, and while I like it almost as much, I have used and been trained on Avid since I was in college, so I am most comfortable with this software for editing purposes.

OpenText MediaBin

I was not involved in the selection process but MediaBin seems to be more of a "repository" than a "file-folder" system. It also displays thumbnail previews of files making it useful for sorting through visual elements, like photos or PDFs. I am not certain how it compares with regard to version history.

Return on Investment

Avid MediaCentral

  • Control over content
  • No outsourcing work to third party
Emily Giannakas | TrustRadius Reviewer

OpenText MediaBin

  • This software is more of a tool that resides in the background, so it is difficult to measure ROI.
  • One negative impact is the challenges of managing access and thus limiting productivity when people can't access things.
  • Another negative impact is the poor search functionality reducing productivity in finding the correct files when needed.
