This system allows me to work on an incredible finishing system with real-time editing and effects. Changing a HD creative decision without rendering is amazing and I believe our clients will love working on this system.
SprocketHeads has continuously invested in state of the art production and post production equipment, HD is a natural extension. The HD community will be well served with the Avid investment.
