Avid to Demo Integrated Workflow at IBC 2001Will Show New Releases of Products for Storage, Broadcast, Post Production and New Media Markets (August 08, 2001)
"At IBC, our mission is to continue to deliver integrated solutions that enable our customers to collaborate more closely on projects than ever before, irrespective of where they are working," said Graham Sharp, vice president of European Sales and Operations. "We see immense value in connecting groups of creative professionals together in a way that empowers local and global collaboration, and streamlines the content creation, management, and distribution process. The progress we're making today continues to strengthen the breadth and depth of the integrated solutions we're bringing to market -- and further positions Avid to capitalize on this evolving opportunity."
Future Releases for Workgroup & Storage
Avid's integrated workflow system will be centered on the availability of Avid Unity MediaNet version 2.0 and version 2.1, the newest version of Avid's network for professional content creation and media distribution, which will be launched at IBC. Avid Unity MediaNet version 2.1 features significant advancements such as dual stream uncompressed support for Macintosh systems and the ability to simultaneously share uncompressed media between Macintosh systems. Version 2.1 also includes Avid Unity PortServer Pro, which allows NewsCutter XP clients to connect to the Avid Unity system via Ethernet, expanding the total client support for up to 50 real-time systems.
In addition, Avid will be showing the recently released Avid NetReview system, a professional, private media remote review tool. Built on the cutting edge technology that powers the AvidProNet Review & Approval service, the NetReview system streamlines the review process by reducing time spent by editors on non-critical tasks such as duplication and mailing of tapes and increasing the flexibility of reviewers to view and comment on media from virtually any location. Features include: frame-accurate, roundtrip reviewer comments for supported Avid editing systems; transaction archive and reporting; customizable user interface; automated encryption; and encoding templates.
Future Releases for Broadcast
For broadcasters, Avid will be highlighting coming releases of its Avid NewsCutter XP v.2.1 (including NewsCutter XP Mobile), which features 4.1.1 PAL, as well as PortServer Pro Support (expanding Avid Unity for News to 50 simultaneous NewsCutter clients); the soon-to-ship support for IMX on AirSPACE video server as well as AirSPACE version 3.0 which includes Transfer While Record, Play While Transfer, and further integration with Avid Unity For News and Media Browse; iNEWS version1.5 featuring Media Browse and additional third party application integration; and Media Browse version 2.2, featuring (but not limited to) voice over, audio level control, split audio, and further integration with AirSPACE and Avid Unity for News, including database (Avid Unity MediaManager) synchronization.
Future Releases for Post & Editors
Avid anticipates announcing version 5.0 of Avid|DS and Avid|DS HD, the industry's premiere nonlinear production (NLP) systems. These new versions will include additional real time capabilities and exciting new features and enhancements spanning all areas of the system's toolset. Also at IBC, Avid expects to announce the shipment of Media Station XL version 10.5, a cost-effective digitizing and output station designed to improve workflow in post-production environments. The newly available Avid Symphony version 3.5, Media Composer 10.5 and Avid Xpress version 10.5 systems will also be showcased.
