Avid has announced a range of new and upcoming innovations for the Avid MediaCentral Platform, developed by Avid partners.
As leading technology companies create solutions integrated into the Avid MediaCentral Platform, the momentum of Avid Everywhere continues to build in the media industry. These latest innovations focus on helping individual artists and creative teams connect and create more collaboratively, powerfully, and profitably.
“The Avid Connectivity Partner Programme delivers on the openness of Avid Everywhere and gives media professionals the flexibility to more easily integrate third-party products into their workflow,” said Chris Gahagan, senior vice president of Products and Technology at Avid. “Hundreds of third-party products developed by many of the world’s leading technology partners have either already been delivered or are in the process of being certified for the platform.”
The Avid Connectivity Partner Programme gives developers access to the resources, documentation, certification, and services they need to create products and solutions that integrate with the Avid MediaCentral Platform ecosystem and sell them in the Avid Marketplace.
New partner offerings include:
• Increased flexibility for live sound production
Media networking manufacturer Audinate has joined the Avid Connectivity Partner Programme, further expanding the partner ecosystem of the Avid MediaCentral Platform. Audinate is currently working with Avid to develop a new Dante option card for the Avid VENUE | S6L live sound system, which will provide customers with additional flexibility for connecting to a wide range of devices and networks.
