Avid Ships Latest Version of Studio Toolkit

Avid has announced the availability of version 5.6 of Avid Studio Toolkit, which delivers significant enhancements to a set of tightly integrated, industry-leading software applications, including Avid 3D, Avid FX, and Avid DVD by Sonic.
Avid Studio Toolkit is the first multi-format solution for simultaneous DVD and Blu-ray Disc authoring, designed specifically for professional film and video editors looking to create and deliver projects in high-definition (HD).
“An end-to-end HD workflow for independent professionals is finally here,” said Patrick McLean, senior product manager for Avid. “With increasing numbers of professional editors looking to create content and output finished projects in HD, this release of Avid Studio Toolkit comes at a perfect time. With Blu-ray support, Avid is offering the first editing solution to make it very easy for independent professionals to deliver their projects in beautiful HD quality, on a low-cost distribution medium.”
The Blu-ray Disc format, now supported in Avid Studio Toolkit 5.6, will enable recording and playback of HD video, and has more than five times the storage capacity of traditional DVDs – holding up to 25GB on a single-layer disc. Plus, with more than 1,500 customizable title, effects and transition templates, Avid Studio Toolkit is ideal for content creators who want to infuse their work with powerful 3D effects and sophisticated visuals, using any system in the new Media Composer family, as well as Avid Xpress Pro or Avid NewsCutter XP systems. With Avid Studio Toolkit, professionals will be able to expand the range of creative services they offer to their customers by delivering more compelling graphics, composites, titles, and effects, and distributing completed projects to tape, DVD, Blu-ray Disc or the Web.
New features in Avid Studio Toolkit v 5.6 include integrated Blu-ray support in Avid DVD by Sonic – allowing Avid Xpress Pro, Media Composer and NewsCutter users to output HD projects to Blu-ray Discs. Avid DVD by Sonic offers new HD and 16:9 menu support, enabling customers to make the most of the next generation of DVDs.
The updated UI, new paint engine and more for Avid FX – offering professionals the ability to create visuals with integrated 2D and 3D compositing, titles and animation.
Avid Studio Toolkit, including upgrades for existing customers, is available now through Avid’s worldwide reseller channel or online at www.avidstore.com.
