The new Avid Pro Tools 11 software release provides the long anticipated 64 bit capability for increased memory space for amazing virtual instrument and effects capacity as well as new and optimized host computer processing for AAX.
Pro Tools 11 now has dedicated input buffering for "NO LATENCY" monitoring while using plugins. Other significant enhancements included Offline track bouncing (up to 150X faster than real time!) and a new integrated Avid Video engine that takes away all of the issues associated with QuickTime.
The Avid Video Engine plays and edits HD video with the same core soft are engine as Avid Media Composer. Avid continues to support the top 3rd party HD video options such as AJA and BlackMagic Designs. Pro Tools 11's Avid Video engine now plays most popular video codecs without transcoding. Supported codecs include Avid HD DNX & MXF, QT, P2, XDCAM, MPEG (Pro Tools HD only) and more.
The new Avid Video Engine continues to support Avid and 3rd party video I/O, including:
• Avid: Mojo DX & Nitris DX Support
• AJA*: Kona3G, Kona3, KonaLHi, KonaLHe Plus, ioExpress, ioXT, Ttap
• Blackmagic Design*: All products
Pro Tools 11 doesn't leave you behind, either! You have compatibility with sessions as far back as v5.1! Included with your purchase is both Pro Tools 10 and Pro Tools 11 licenses to allow your transition as plug-ins are ported to the new 64 bit platform. New and more powerful metering that addresses the new broadcast standards as well as Satellite Link and Video Satellite LE are now included with Pro Tools 11. Some of the notable automation features include new VCA groups and support for mixing Dolby ATMOS as well as automating on input or while recording audio.
*AJA and Blackmagic are responsible for their own testing – all device support is TBD pending testing.
