Another great IBC is in the books! We unveiled a handful of new and improved products that enhance our existing lineup of flexible, collaborative tools to help creators like you get the job done. To us, the highlights of the show were all about connecting with attendees and talking everything workflow solutions.

Demos and training sessions led by Avid pros were valuable for hands-on learning and discovery of key features that benefit audio, video, and broadcast media. Visitors on the show floor were able to check out many of our new and existing solutions, with editing, graphics, media management, storage, and collaboration tools at the ready.

As always, the IBC show is a platform for lots of big news. This year, there was no bigger story than the new partnership between The Walt Disney Studios and Microsoft, who are innovating new ways to create, produce and distribute content in the cloud, and Avid is thrilled to be working closely with them. Variety gave its take on this watershed development for the media and entertainment business.
