Washington State U. Broadcast Students To Use Avid Like the Pros

Avid Technology will soon have their products in the classrooms of Washington State University broadcast students.

Students at WSU will use Avid's latest editing programs to produce professional-quality digital graphics, entertainment and news, according to Alex Tan, director of the Edward R. Murrow School of Communication, WSU.

"We're excited to offer a program that prepares WSU students for jobs in broadcasting, where Avid production tools are the industry standard," Tan said.

Phases one and two of the implementation include Avid's NewsCutter Adrenaline FX, Avid NewsCutter XP, Avid Unity LANshare systems with MediaManager and TransferManager, as well as an Avid DS Nitris system for HD editing and finishing.

Phases three and four are likely to include Avid Unity MediaNetwork, additional NewsCutter XP systems, PortServer Pro, Xdeck, Avid AirSPACE, and CaptureManager.
