The Editors' Lounge Returns!

Presentations from Avid, EditShare and AlterMedia

After a long drought, the Editors' Lounge returned for September and now the harvest is in! Avid, EditShare and AlterMedia stopped by to share a bountiful cornucopia of post-production tools with our guests.

Avid Solution Specialist Michael Krulik  demonstrated new features in the latest version of  Media Composer v8.1, including the Avid Image Sequencer for DPX files, new trimming and copy tools in the timeline and how to create multiple audio mix-downs along with many more features. Rumor has it, there were some sneak peeks of future developments, too…

Jesse Adams presented the very latest releases from EditShare including Storage v7 and the Flow v3.1 media asset management platform. EditShare Storage has been thoroughly retooled to deliver higher stream counts, higher total throughput and smoother operation than ever before, along with a Quality of Service system that reserves bandwidth for high-priority activities such as real-time capture or playout and limits the bandwidth of low-priority activities, and much more. New features in EditShare Flow include AAF import support for better integration with Avid workflows.

AlterMedia CEO Joel Stoner  demonstrated Studio Suite Xi. This newly redesigned studio management software now offers extensibility to the web, iOS devices and the desktop with a redesigned UI for streamlined post-production management.
