Media 100 Adds OMF, AAF Compatibility to Mac and Windows Editing Systems

Media 100 i OMF option coming in fourth quarter By Dave Nagel
Media 100 says it's adopting Avid's OMF media interchange format, as well as the open AAF interchange format, in it's Macintosh- and Windows-based editing systems. Affected systems include Media 100 i and 844/X. This allows users of Media 100 NLEs to share program-level information with Avid systems and Final Cut Pro.

OMF compatibility in 844/X is provided in the new Version 1.5 interoperability release also announced today. This new 844/X software release allows OMF files created on Avid Symphony, Media Composer and Xpress, as well as Apple Final Cut Pro, to be imported into 844/X for final 10-bit uncompressed program finishing. OMF import from Media 100 i is supported with the new OMF software utility also announced today.

Media 100 also announced today new software for OMF export for its award-winning Media 100 i Version 8 (V8) digital video system for Mac OS X. The new OMF compatibility software allows Media 100 i customers to export their program timeline to Media 100's own 844/X for 10-bit uncompressed finishing, as well as Avid Symphony, Avid Media Composer and Digidesign Pro Tools. The Media 100 i OMF export software enables an "Export to OMF" command from within the File menu in Media 100 i. This export function automatically creates an OMF file that contains multiple layers, transitions and effects.

The OMF software for Media 100 i will be available in the fourth quarter for $495. A future version of the software will also be available for Media 100 iFinish for Windows customers. The 844/X OMF functionality is available now. For more information, visit
