Avid lauches version 4 of Media Composer, Symphony

Avid has introduced new versions of its Media Composer video editing software and Symphony finishing system

Avid has introduced new versions of its Media Composer video editing software and Symphony finishing system.

Media Composer and Symphony offer improved stereoscopic 3D editing, enabling customers to view 3D material side by side in addition to over/under -- ensuring greater accuracy of editing decisions and a wider choice of cost-effective monitors for stereoscopic viewing.

Mix and Match provides customers with the flexibility to use media sources of different frame rates and resolutions (SD and HD) in the same timeline - eliminating external transcoding and time-consuming frame-rate conversions.

Users can monitor HD and SD cross-and-down converted formats from 1080p24 masters. This enables customers using Mojo DX or Nitris DX hardware to view HD material on a less-expensive SD monitor.

The tools also gain support for Panasonic AVC-I and Ikegami GFCAM 100MBps formats.

The Production Suite versions have been updated to include new versions of Boris Continuum Complete, Sorenson Squeeze and SmartSound SonicFire Pro.

Media Composer and Symphony will be available on September 30.

Avid has also introduced new versions of its NewsCutter editor for news broadcasters and Interplay production asset management system.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
