Avid Connect 2016

Avid Connect 2016

The Avid Connect conference is run by the Avid Customer Association and is about to wrap up while NAB ramps up.   As an audio editor, I wasn’t sure how much of the conference was audio centric.  Although there were quite a few sessions related to audio or Avid Pro Tools, most of the keynote content was directed for video production workflows….which makes sense now that I think about it.  It’s no coincidence that Avid Connect was scheduled next to NAB.  Avid’s big push is building out their products as a platform to streamline workflows.  The platinum sponsors for the event were HP and NVidia. There were a few sneak peeks including the HP Z1 AIO Workstation.
