Avid Artist Controllers


One of the things we try to stress to people when they’re getting to know Media Composer, is the importance of getting to know the keyboard. Knowing all the shortcuts and ins-and-outs of the keyboard brings a greater degree of control over the application than just using the mouse to click-around. But there are still going to be times when the keyboard cannot replace the presence of a dedicated control surface. Now in Media Composer 5.5 we're introducing the Artist Series of controllers—Artist Transport, Artist Mix, and Artist Control. These are three Ethernet-based control surfaces that really raise the level of interaction between you and Media Composer. Let’s take a look.

About Matt Feury

As Senior Manager for Avid's Post Solutions Marketing, it's my job to lead the marketing strategy of Avid’s video editing systems and their related storage and infrastructure solutions. A big part of my job, and certainly my favorite, is the creation of content that educates and inspires existing and potential customers. A prime example of this is our podcast (The Rough Cut). It's given me the opportunity to connect future filmmakers with industry pro's such as Morgan Spurlock, Kevin Smith, Doug Liman and Ben Affleck. Since joining Avid in 1994 I've had the good fortune to meet and collaborate with customers from all over the world, in every kind of project. And I'm deeply grateful to all of them for letting me be a part of their journey.
