Avid as in "Cat Lid" That's how every Avid rep I've ever talked to pronounced it, not to mention every owner and instructor.

Check out a commercial by the Senior Marketing director.

Click on the spot about Avid Xpress Studio, and that's how he pronounces it.

Thanks Richard. It always confused me because I've known other products called Avid, and they were always pronounced ay-vid, or eh-vid, up here in Canada.


How abour "bokeh"?

According to Photonotes.org:

"A term borrowed from the Japanese, pronounced with short vowels. (ie: more like French pronunciation - bo-ké - versus long English diphthongs - bow-kay.)"

How about:

Matrox

I pronounce it Mate-trox

Adobe:

I pronounce it A-doe-bee.

I have heard it spoken as dol-bee, but I think the guy I was speaking to had a speech impediment???

Filip, there is really no good English pronunciation of romanized chinese characters, but people call me "show-lee".

I pronounce Chrosziel like Crow-Zeal...but not sure if thats right.

I'm still a little confused about Kino-Flo, didnt really get the explanation. Is it like know-flow, or like keyNO-flow, or am I still wrong?

Kee NO flow or if you prefer Keeno flow

"Crow zhyell" or "Crows yell" but the 'z' sound should be in there.

Where's the accent on that? "CROW zhyell" or "crow ZHYELL." I assume crow is pronounced like the bird?

As I've heard it, the stress is pretty flat across the three syllables of kee no flow. But thats in the south and southwest of America. If anything, a bit more stress on 'kee'. But again, pretty flat.

"crow" as in the bird... and the stress tends to be on the last syllable, but just but barely. "crowzhYELL" Though, to be fair, in French it might be "Kwah"

Guys, these are just my experiences... nothing etched in stone here, I'm no pronunciation authority, just passing on what I've heard in the business.
