Avid announces timetable for Intel-based Mac compatibility

Avid Technology will expand its range of video and audio content creation solutions to include availability for Intel-based Mac systems, including the new Mac Pro workstation introduced last week at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).

The Avid Video division expects to deliver new versions of its Avid Xpress Pro and Media Composer systems for Intel-based Macs by December. Following the arrival of the new Mac Pro workstation, Avid’s Audio Division, Digidesign, expects to release a compatible update to its Pro Tools│HD 7.2 software in September. Full qualification for the existing Intel-based Mac versions of Pro Tools LE and Pro Tools M-Powered on the new Mac Pro workstation is expected in December, although preliminary testing indicates that both applications will run without problems, according to the company.
