Avid updates Media Composer, NewsCutter and Symphony

Bangalore: In an attempt to boost its open media production solutions, Avid has introduced an upgrade to its Media Composer video editing software for Mac and Windows. The company has also released new versions of its NewsCutter news editing tool and the Symphony finishing system.

The new releases namely Media Composer 5.5, NewsCutter 9.5 and Symphony 5.5 get the PhraseFind add-on that allows editors to quickly find clips and segments by searching for words or phrases used in audio tracks. Designed to match dialogue to a script, it uses Nexidia phonetic indexing engine. The latest versions of Media Composer and NewsCutter add support for AJA's Io Express input and output interface.

Eucon support for integration with Avid control surfaces such as Avid Artist Control, Artist Transport and Artist Mix devices delivering greater flexibility for effects, audio and transport manipulation.

It should be noted that by allowing Media Composer to work with the hardware they already own, Avid is setting its eyes on the current users of other editing softwares, especially Apple Final Cut Pro.

You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service.
