This past February Avid presented at the HPA Tech retreat. They spoke about Avid Everywhere cloud based NLE and Audio workflows. Avid Cloud Collaboration for ProTools will be included in the next release and it blew the crowd away. ProTools users and musicians of every level, from professional musician's to garage bands, from DJs to record companies will be able to remotely collaborate from anywhere in the world via the cloud. We can't wait to see it happen for Media Composer in the not so distant future!

How Avid is Advancing Key Industry Trends Highlighted at the HPA Tech Retreat 2016
It’s not often that I have the opportunity to join all of the “who’s who” of technologists in the post production world in one location, especially those ingrained in Hollywood’s post environment, so attending and presenting at this year’s HPA Tech Retreat was a notable experience.
I stopped by the HPA Tech Retreat, February 15 – 19 in Indian Wells, Calif., to present at the “Your Guide to Next Gen Cloud Workflows” panel discussion with fellow industry thought leaders. While there, I quickly learned why the HPA Retreat is a major draw to many in the industry.
