Avid Technology today announced its plans to expand its range of video and audio content creation solutions that will be available for Intel-based Mac systems, including the new Mac Pro workstation introduced last week at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). The Avid Video division expects to deliver new versions of its industry-standard Avid Xpress Pro and Media Composer systems for all Intel-based Macs by December. Following the arrival of the new Mac Pro workstation, Avid’s Audio Division, Digidesign, expects to release a compatible update to its Pro Tools | HD 7.2 software in September. Full qualification for the existing Intel-based Mac versions of Pro Tools LE and Pro Tools M-Powered on the new Mac Pro workstation is also expected in December, although preliminary testing indicates that both applications will run without problems. In addition, Digidesign’s business unit, M-Audio, expects to qualify various hardware interfaces for the Mac Pro workstation by December. A wide range of Digidesign and M-Audio systems are already compatible with the Intel-based computers that Apple released earlier this year.
