Avid is now shipping its new Media Composer Adrenaline system. Adrenaline upgrades both Media Composer’s hardware and software to offer real-time, multi-stream, uncompressed SD video editing and 10-bit HD media expandability.
The Adrenaline hardware is part of Avid’s new DNA family of digital nonlinear accelerators, a hybrid architecture designed to leverage the power of both host-based software capabilities and hardware-based acceleration, delivering speedier performance.
Media Composer Adrenaline supports uncompressed SD video over a standard FireWire connection. The system offers 24p Film Composer offline editing functionality, 24-bit audio capabilities and a real-time color correction tool that can automatically correct an entire sequence with a single click.
The system can also operate in a collaborative workflow with Avid Unity MediaNetwork and natively supports Avid Meridien, (JFIF), ABVB (AVRs), DV25, DV50, IMX and uncompressed 601 media—all mixable in the same timeline.
