Quadro for Avid Media Composer:Unleash Your Creativity


Many top creative professionals choose Avid Media Composer to help them create the world’s favorite films, TV shows, and other media. The all-new 64-bit Media Composer 6 offers a sleek modern user interface and powerful performance, making great use of NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics GPUs. In addition, the latest release features new stereoscopic 3D tools with support for NVIDIA 3D Vision ProTM, 7.1 surround capabilities, and native support for ProRes, RED EPIC, and AVCHD through AMA (Avid Media Access). This makes it one of the fastest, most versatile tools for professional video editing.

As an editor, you need a system that delivers sufficient power and performance to handle processing-intensive video codecs for file-based workflows. This gives you the creative freedom to experiment and tell a better story. Together, Avid Intelligent Architecture and Quadro GPUs offer you a way to push more work through your system to keep revenues up when budgets are down.

You’ll find Intelligent Architecture built into Avid professional editing system product families, including Symphony, Media Composer, NewsCutter, and Avid DS. All these solutions take advantage of the latest generation of Quadro graphics to provide a level of performance simply not possible using the CPU alone.

The Avid Intelligent Architecture works seamlessly with NVIDIA Quadro GPUs. First, the architecture evaluates the platform configuration, OS, hardware, and GPU capabilities in the system. It then dynamically distributes the processing to the device best suited to the specific task. The task distribution and load balancing takes into account multiple factors, such as resource availability and transfer times between components. And the architecture is built to scale automatically as CPU cores and GPU processing power increase. This means you always get maximum performance, no matter how complex the task.

Avid has qualified and supports NVIDIA GPUs for Avid DS 10 and higher software, and Media Composer 3 and higher software in its product families. With Avid Intelligent Architecture leveraging the power of NVIDIA professional cards, you get the performance, speed, and interaction you need to be successful with Avid professional editing systems.
