?Media 100 HD has been met with an incredible level of enthusiasm from both legacy Media 100 system customers and Mac-based editors looking for a professional yet flexible solution for mixing HD and SD together, said Mike Savello, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at Media 100. ?And our recently announced plans to extend 844/X with XML and AAF import from offline systems, enhanced finishing feature set, and native HD support have resulted in an influx of product demonstration requests. This road show is a direct response to this increased demand.
