Additional Interoperability Release functions include OMF compatibility with Avid Symphony, Avid Media Composer, Digidesign Pro Tools, Apple Final Cut Pro and Media 100 i.
The 844/Xi's Visual Voicing allows editors to view any two layers in a multi-layer composition, change them and view the changes in real time without processing or rendering.
The 844/Xi is available at a starting price point of $24,995 for Media 100 software and hardware; complete system configurations start at $40,000.
