Avid announced key new additions to its EUCON partner program, including Adobe Audition CS6 software, Digital Vision Phoenix and Pomfort LiveGrade.
EUCON is Avid’s high-speed Ethernet control protocol that allows Avid Artist Series control surfaces and other consoles to connect to a variety of third-party creative audio and video software systems, delivering integrated control over multiple applications and workstations. EUCON is currently supported by a wide cross section of Macintosh- and Windows-based applications including titles from companies like Autodesk, Blackmagic Design, RED and Steinberg.
Avid’s Artist Series controllers deliver highly responsive tactile control of features like recording, editing and mixing. Compact and portable enough to fit into any setup, Avid’s Artist Series controllers combine a highly responsive feel with extensive functionality.
“Today’s announcement demonstrates how far Avid has come in developing an open ecosystem of third-party workflows based around the EUCON Protocol,” said Martin Kloiber, vice president of products and solutions at Avid. “We remain focused on driving the interoperability of our audio and video solutions, and we are proud to work with industry leaders like Adobe, Digital Vision and Pomfort in the pursuit of that vision. Our expanded partnerships enable us to provide creative professionals with deep, integrated control over their favorite applications and flexible workflows to do their best work.”
“We’re excited to have fully integrated EUCON support into Adobe Audition CS6,” says Colin Stefani, senior manager, professional video at Adobe. “The quality and flexibility of the Avid Artist Series controllers is a perfect match for the advanced feature set of Adobe Audition CS6. Whether recording, mixing, or performing audio restoration, the combination of these powerful solutions can really help make your audio and video productions sound their best.”
“Excellent quality and a competitive price make the Artist Color grading panel the perfect partner for the use of LiveGrade on-set,” said Patrick Renner, managing director at Pomfort. “Our users like the direct interaction with the image they get with our software products – and Artist Color supports this with professional, physical controls.”
“This will be an exciting NAB for Digital Vision,” concluded Torbjörn Dyrvold, Digital Vision’s Phoenix & DVO Product Manager. “Together with the introduction of our new video restoration system for broadcast and archival material, we are also showing the integration of the Avid Artist panel into Phoenix Finish, our high end film and video restoration and mastering system. We looked at several alternatives and chose the Avid Artist Color panel as it provides an economic and compact solution for controlling our advanced color tools, allowing the Phoenix users to operate the system with ease and speed.”
