New Avid Products for 2008 Announced

There are some exciting new things from Avid on the software and the hardware side. The product line was simplified by killing Xpress Pro and there are 2 new hardware boxes that promise to deliver great speed and reliability in the edit bay.

And there is a price point for every budget. News from pre-NAB announcement:

I don't think they've released pricing yet.

IMO , it would make sense that Mojo DX has HD I/O of some sort.

In the article linked by Igor above:

"Media Composer running on Mojo DX or Mojo SDI hardware is intended for offline capture and editing. The Mojos lack some of the real time features of Nitris DX.

Mojo DX comes with SD and HD SDI as well as analog and HDMI connectivity. Mojo SDI works in standard definition only."

It would indeed make sense, David, I agree. I think in today's world, it would be nuts to release hardware that has no HD compatibility.

I was trying to figure out the price points last night. I don't think that even the resellers know that just now. But it seems that Mojo DX will be listed for either 4K or 5K. This is all anecdotal so don't base any decisions on it.

Any word on if Avid will continue its DS Assist Station software? It's a software only version of DS. Thanks.

I haven't heard anything about discontinuing DS Assist Station. Certainly not at the L.A. event. In fact, very little was said about DS in general.

Stereoscopic editing from 2d images with 3D output in development.

That would be impressive if they pull that off!!

Not sure but I overheard one guy talking to a demo artist about that and he seemed pleased with what he heard. There should be overall improvements in native HD handling.

Over on the EX1 forum there is a thread mentioning the possibility of a customer patch release to allow 35 mbit 1920x1080 editing of HQ

Thanks David.
Unfortunately for me, it seems like this update/patch, whatever it is, is for Avid on PCs only. I'm on a Mac, and I suspect I'm still out of luck.

Official Avid Press Release New Products

http://www.studiodaily.com/main/news/9353.html

A ton of new announcements on a ton of new features and pricing.

Among them FINALLY JVC HDV 24p and 25p EDITING. The bottom line is that now you can get real-time HD I/O for under $10k.
