Avid on Intel-Mac Arrives

Well, it’s finally happened. Avid released Media Composer 2.7 and Xpress 5.7 today, complete with Mac/Intel compatibility. Other features include phonetic script integration, which Avid is calling “ScriptSync,” and compatibility with the DNxHD 36 codec. New features in these releases were shown at Avid’s Insider Seminar, which I described in several recent posts.

The press release quotes Matt Feury with the following: “We’ve run these systems through a more rigorous testing process than ever before, and we’re confident that our customers will be pleased with the stability and performance they’ll receive after installing the new software.” Let’s hope so. I’ve heard that Avid on Mac/Intel is the fastest Avid you’ve ever seen. I’m eager to get my hands on one of these things.

The complete press release, including upgrade pricing, is here.
