Gordon Lyon, Digidesign product manager for Avid Mojo SDI told us, â€œNever has the full power of integrated Avid video been so affordable. The ability to play back Avid video sequences directly in the Pro Tools Timeline has long been a major time and money saver. Now smaller facilities, edit rooms, and independent editors can have the competitive advantage of working with any standard-definition Avid video sequence on PC or Mac.â€�
With Avid Mojo SDI, Pro Tools users can open OMF, AAF, or MXF files created on any Avid Xpress or Media Composer system in Pro Tools and get sample-accurate playback of all standard-definition Avid video and frame edge-aligned playback of most standard-definition and high-definition QuickTime video. Avid Mojo SDI can also capture DV25-quality video directly to the Pro Tools timeline, offers a full complement of analog and digital video I/O connections â€” including component, composite, S-Video, and SDI (Serial Digital Interface), and is supported in Digidesignâ€™s new Pro Tools HD 7.3 software release.
Digidesign Market Manager for Professional Products Gannon Kashiwa had this to say, â€œWith support for the Avid Mojo SDI in Pro Tools HD 7.3, our customers can now take advantage of the serial digital interface as well as all of the video resolutions and file formats that were previously available only on the AVoption|V10. The interface capabilities and additional file support alone are a good step forward, but when you combine those with the recently added video-editing capabilities and the affordable price point of Avid Mojo SDI, itâ€™s a no-brainer for Pro Tools users doing post-production audio.â€�
