This bundle is for qualifying institutions. Click here for eligibility.

This special Academic Bundle is a great for Avid workflows in the communications, journalism and sports programs of every college, not just the very biggest. Community colleges, small local schools, D3s, small secular, etc.

Avid NEXIS workflows are now being used by major broadcast groups including Sinclair, Viacom and Meredith and there is a great value for schools having their students in these departments understand the technical backbone behind producing news, sports, television, OTT and video for social media. Special bundles with more Media Composer floating licenses are also available.

As an educator, you tell your students pursue their passions. You strive to help them succeed. But while many students may be interested in a career in media, it may seem too difficult and expensive for them to get there.

Avid’s education offerings solve these dilemmas with solutions scaled to your facility’s needs. Whether you’re a college educator or K-12 teacher, you can provide your students with hands-on training that will prepare them for top college media programs and successful careers in the media industry.
