At IBC2009, Avid introduced new versions of its Media Composer (v4.0), Symphony (v4.0), NewsCutter (v8.0) editing software and Interplay (v2.0) production asset management system.

These new offerings enable broadcast and post-production professionals to:

  • Eliminate timely transcode processes with the capability to mix and match different frame rates and resolutions in an open timeline within the same project;
  • Expand native support for file-based media with the addition of formats such as Panasonic AVC-I and Ikegami GFCAM; and
  • Empower production teams to become more efficient by extending workgroup capabilities to the wide area network.
