Bring high-definition video into your audio production workflow. For Pro Tools HD Systems with Sync I/O.
Video Satellite is a software option that allows Pro Tools|HD editors to quickly and easily play Avid HD or SD video sequences from a dedicated Mac or Windows-based computer, running Avid Media Composer software, in sync with their Pro Tools session. Video Satellite enhances post-production efficiency, eliminating the need to render effects, transcode video, or copy files. It also enables you to tap into Avid shared media environments to stream video. And because all video playback is offloaded onto a separate but synced (Mac or PC) computer, you can maintain the full audio track count and processing power of Pro Tools|HD.
