video workflows, Pro Tools 11 enables you to take on the most demanding sessions and

Media Composer is the most widely used NLE for professional film and video editing.
With Media Composer 7, you gain accelerated high-res-to-HD workflows, automated
media management, and Interplay Sphere for Mac support, extending real-time
production everywhere. Users will be exposed to the fastest file-based media workflows,
ACE-certified tools, and the most trusted media management in the industry.
Avid Interplay Sphere opens the new frontier of universal connectivity for news, sports,
and video production, letting you craft better stories from where they’re actually
happening with a full range of media access and collaborative capabilities. Whether
working on a news story across town or a sporting event across the world, Sphere
gives editors, reporters, and videographers the ability to ingest, edit, and move media
fluidly between story site and production facility.
Requiring only a NewsCutter or Media Composer editor and an internet connection to an
Interplay Production workgroup, Interplay Sphere connects multiple remote editors
simultaneously, letting them combine footage from the scene with material on the
Interplay Production system. For quick turnaround, proxies of finished edits can precede
upload of full resolution media, all becoming available to everyone in the facility or the
field in one simple, transparent process.
Finally at IBC, Avid will highlight how its global media enterprise customers are
experiencing increased ROI and productivity by implementing integrated workflows that
enable seamless and faster collaboration and transparent visibility of their assets.
