Before we get into the promotions I wanted to take some time to congratulate Avid on 25 years and highlight this amazing accomplishment!

Avid is committed as ever to professional workflows and the needs of post production facilities, broadcast and cable television stations, independent film makers, and anyone trying to make a living editing and producing content. It all started with Avid. Many of you started with Avid. It’s time to come back home.

ATTN Avid Editors: Upgrade to Avid Symphony 6.5 before 12/14/12 for Under $1,000
You probably know Media Composer, but did you know that Avid Symphony is identical to it, with all of the same tools and features, plus advanced color correction and Boris Continuum Complete (which retails alone for double the price of this offer)? And when paired with a Nitris DX interface, Symphony offers Universal Mastering for easy multiformat delivery.
