Avid has announced the release of Avid DS 11, the newest version of the company’s full-featured editing, graphics creation, color correction, and compositing solution. With new features such as hands-on color correction with Avid Artist Color integration, expanded file format and hardware support, 16 channels of embedded audio, total conform to Media Composer 6 and Symphony 6, and more, DS 11 enables customers to maximize creativity and enhance productivity through more integrated, flexible workflows.
David Colantuoni, senior director of product management at Avid stated that with DS 11 their customers have all the editing, compositing, painting, conforming, and finishing tools they need to create and deliver projects fast. They are pleased to deliver enhanced integration and flexibility in DS 11—providing their customers with the highest quality tools that can help them spend more time on creating rather than rendering or exporting to other applications.
