Sounds pretty cool in theory. I hope they have a working demo or something at NAB and don't just announce that there will be future announcements.Wouldn't it be great if you, the editor, could work in a no-compromise video editing environment with minimal client-side compute/storage requirements and without the need to sync data, proxy or otherwise, regardless of the distance between you and your video?
At NAB, Avid is demonstrating technology that aims to fulfill the vision: edit anywhere, on anything. Behind this vision are some core beliefs:
We believe you should be able to access your media anywhere-without copying it.
We believe that you shouldn't have to worry about codecs and formats for either ingest or delivery. Everything should just work.
We believe that you should be able to edit in the edit bay, in the cafeteria, at home, on location, in the airport lounge, or even at 33,000 feet-without compromise.
We believe that if the only hardware you have with you is a netbook-you should still be able to edit.
We believe that not just media, but software too can be streamed to the laptop-truly making any computer an editor.
You probably have those same beliefs. And if seeing is believing, you'll just have to come check out our web-based editing technology demo at NAB.
