Proven and Trusted Audio, Video, and Live Sound Creative Tools Await in the Artist Suite

Avid at NAB 2014


With the Avid Everywhere vision as our guide, we have reorganized our existing creative tools for audio, video, and live sound production and introduced new solutions in the Artist Suite, one of three application suites built upon the new Avid MediaCentral Platform.

Let’s go into a little more detail about the Artist Suite solutions. This suite includes all of the Avid solutions you know and love to create content, including digital audio workstations, music notation software, control surfaces, live sound systems, video editing solutions, and graphics creation systems—think Media Composer, Pro Tools, Sibelius and Avid Motion Graphics.


With new monthly and annual Media Composer subscription options, customers can now gain access to the latest Media Composer toolset, support, and upgrades.

In fact, we’ve made improvements to our NLE solutions in the Artist Suite to help give you the creative edge, including:

Media Composer | Software subscription licensing

With new monthly and annual subscription options (available in Q2), customers can now gain access to the latest Media Composer toolset, support, and upgrades on a low-cost monthly or annual basis, or own the software outright.

Media Composer | Software floating licensing

For large-scale media enterprises, post-production houses, and educational institutions, we offer floating licensing for Media Composer (available in Q2), making it possible to purchase a “pack” of shared licenses to deploy facility-wide using a single system ID.

Media Composer | Cloud

Formerly Interplay Sphere, Media Composer | Cloud (available now) brings cloud-enabled editing capabilities to video editors.

We’re also working on future enhancements to Pro Tools. Our sneak peek here at NAB 2014 included new cloud capabilities to enable you to connect and connect and collaborate with others remotely; a new online public marketplace so you can promote, sell, and license your music and audio content; and a universal metadata to give you the ability to manage and track your media.
