 “Learn how to Integrate  Your Avid Media Composer Projects with  Adobe CS4 Production Premium”

We are committed to helping you find cost effective solutions to increase your profitability within this tight economy and it’s corresponding pressures on business without having to throw out your current post production infrastructure. 

Our testing on Avid workflows includes fantastic solutions addressing Blu-Ray, Flash Media interactivity and speech to text conversion for web searchable streams. This is featured in a workflow Key Code Media and Adobe have refined.

We have partnered up with Adobe to present this workflow as an online seminar featuring Adobe CS4 Production Premium and the new HP Z Workstations.

In this seminar we will cover the following

Educate you on the benefits of tight integration in Adobe CS4 Production Premium in conjunction with your Avid Media Composer projects :

  • Adobe After Effects®, Photoshop® and Encore
  • Discover the new interoperability Adobe has with Avid Media Composer
  • Importing Avid projects without recapturing media files or having to re-invest in a new infrastructure.

 

You’ll also be introduced to the next generation
Z workstations by HP:

Now bundled with Adobe CS4 Production Premium, you’ll discover these workstations are radically different from the inside out and are an even more affordable solution if you are planning to upgrade your hardware and software.

Be prepared to be awed by unprecedented innovation, performance, and reliability for Digital Media and Entertainment.
