Digidesign partner with Virtual Katy Development

Digidesign is pleased to announce it has partnered with Virtual Katy Development Limited ( to offer a free version of their popular VK Conformer auto conform software to all purchasers of new Pro Tools|HD Core systems and DV Toolkit 2.
Digidesign will demonstrate the new Virtual Katy solution on the Avid Booth #SL701. Additionally, Virtual Katy will be on hand to demonstrate VK Conformer as well as their other auto conform and change management solution, VK2, on the Avid Partner Pavilion booth #SL1513F.
VK Conformer is an auto-conform workhorse designed for conforming and nondestructively recompiling Pro Tools sessions in post production applications. Users can import an Avid Change Note or CMX 3600 Edit Decision List (EDL) into Pro Tools and conform the session to match the picture cut exactly. VK Conformer offers a powerful means of accelerating a Pro Tools post production workflow. Features include:
  • Support for EDLs and Change Notes
  • List Cleaner - eliminates unwanted elements from lists
  • Preview Mode - enables you to preview and modify region boundaries before committing to the conform
  • Conform - identifies necessary sound file changes and automatically re-syncs the Pro Tools session.
    “VK Conformer will shave hours if not days off the amount of time sound editors spend syncing their Pro Tools session,” commented Virtual Katy Founder and Head of Research and Development John McKay.
    In addition, Pro Tools HD and DV Toolkit 2 customers who receive VK Conformer will be eligible to try a free, 30-day demo of VK2, Virtual Katy’s ultimate auto-conform and change management solution. VK2 automates the process of re-editing a Pro Tools session to match updates made by picture editors working on the same project in parallel. This application easily surpasses its peers in terms of processing speed, tracing, and comparison engine techniques.
    “VK Conformer is fast, VK2 is addictive,” added McKay. “Every auto conform and change management function we could think of is in VK2. With VK2, I can pretty much guarantee that Pro Tools users will never dread another conform session again." (CD/CL)
