Avid today introduced a series of newly-designed hardware solutions designed to enhance the quality and performance of Pro Tools|HD.
The new HD Series interfaces HD I/O, HD OMNI and HD MADI, offer customers flexible configurations to support a variety of analog and open digital formats for audio recording, mixing and playback.
The new I/O options include :
(MSRP $3995 and up) enables customers to achieve the highest-quality audio record and playback with the option of three space-saving configurations—16x16 analog, 16x16 digital and 8x8x8 analog and digital—in a 2 RU rack mountable interface.
(MSRP $2995) frees up customer workspace by integrating the functionality of numerous costly outboard components into an all-in-one premium sound solution for recording, mixing and monitoring. Features include state-of-the-art conversion, two world-class mic pre-amps, headphone outputs, a full-featured surround monitor section and a 14x26 channel persistent mixer that functions even when the computer is off—letting users listen to CDs, MP3 players, keyboards and drum machines without the need for an additional mixer.
(MSRP $4995) opens up workflows and speeds production time for broadcast, live sound and post production sound professionals by offering the ability to easily connect Pro Tools|HD systems to industry-standard MADI infrastructures, without the need for a format converter. Built-in sample rate conversion on all inputs and outputs allow customers to integrate into workflows with multiple sample rates (upstream and downstream) using a single, 64-channel 1 RU rack mountable interface.
