XTRMX software tools will connect to Avid’s system allowing multiple people to edit and review the same video simultaneously through the web without having to install Avid software.
“It’s as if you are sitting in the same room with the editor,” XTRMX co-founder Harel Ram said in a statement. “Users from different places can communicate directly to get immediate approval, and even control the system to make the actual edits directly in the timeline. XTRMX provides a gateway into the Avid system so the reviewer can both see and comment on material as well as edit media, whether they are in the next edit bay over or halfway around the world.”
XTRMX software should be a value in the Avid’s online store or through the company’s sales network early next year, Mr. Ram said.
Avid executive Ed Caracappa said that the collaboration with XTRMX will accelerate the video editing workflow.
