AVoption|V10 hardware allows Pro Tools users to import and play back standard-definition video files so you can accept projects cut on the full line of Avid DNA products, including Avid Xpress Pro and Avid Media Composer Adrenaline systems, as well as legacy Avid Meridien and ABVB-based editing systems.
AVoption|V10 includes Serial Digital Interface I/O, Avid Media Station|PT software for render, export, and layback, and DigiTranslator 2.0 software for AAF/OMF/MXF interchange.
Utilizing only a standard FireWire connection, the Digidesign AVoption|V10 interface provides Pro Tools system playback of virtually all standard-definition Avid video media, including all JFIF (up to 1:1) and AVR resolutions, DV25 and DV50, MXF, IMX MPEG50, multi-cam, interlaced, and 24P/25P progressive scan. AVoption|V10 even allows you to mix different video resolutions in the timeline. Component, Composite, S-Video, and Serial Digital Interface (SDI) I/O are all included.
Avid Media Station|PT software, included with AVoption|V10, allows you to perform automated capture and conform of both audio and video with full machine control. It also enables you to import an EDL or open an existing Avid sequence. The ability to render effects and export sequences for use in Pro Tools affords audio engineers complete control of the entire AAF/OMF/MXF export process. Custom "Send to Pro Tools" templates automate the export process, ensuring that you get the video and audio files exactly as you need for use in Pro Tools. You can also import audio from a Pro Tools system into Media Station|PT to verify audio is in sync with the original video, lay back audio and video to tape with full machine control, or export digital movies for review, mastering, or web distribution.
AVoption|V10 also includes DigiTranslator 2.0 software for easy OMF, AAF, and MXF interchange, and fully supports record and playback of audio and video with Avid Unity Shared Storage.
